The situation in a nutshell: Athena posts a picture of Brian’s board position after losing to him with her red-based strategy. He notably has two Circle of Protection: Red in play. People realize that his submitted “decklist”/picture of what he was playing only contains one Circle of Protection: Red. Brian won the event, but as the tweet above details, he returned the trophy after this information came to light.
This is arguably a watershed moment for the Old School community and format.
Below is our year to date standings updated with the results of the July event:
And congratulations to Zach Dobbin for taking down the July event, defeating his teammate, Joe Brennan in the finals.
year to date our top 8 stands as:
Joe Brennan 97
Greg Hoover 78
Ryan McKinney 73
Zach Dobbin 72
Dean Harris 71
Stephen Harvey 56
Nick DiJohn 52
Josh Barkon 50
We didn't see much in the way of top 8 shake up - The tie for 8th was broken with Chuck Grebe a mere 3 points out of a spot in the finals. Other than that, there was some shifting around of the top 8. Joe Brennan seems a certain lock for a final spot. Greg, Ryan, Zach and Dean are on pretty steady footing. Steve, Nick and Josh are currently in but has Chuck Grebe nipping at their heels. The next tier of players show us Evan Hunterdmark, Dan Barkon, Stephen Ganter, Jason Beaupre all close enough that a strong finish to 2019 in our final 3-4 events could push them into contention.
