Kevin was given the choice of choosing Door #1 or trading Door #1 for Door #2. Kevin opted for Door #2. Door #1 had a Worldwake Jace, the Mindsculptor. Door #2 had a Jace, the Malort Sculptor Forest!

Frank took a revised Taiga for 2nd place. Jon Hammack took a Legends Karakas. Nam Tran took a set of Rivals of Ixalan. Craig Kuchar took an Iconic Masters Mana Drain and a box of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies! I am not sure how the rest of the prizes went. Everyone got to pick something so I'm sure they can post what they got! The From the Vault pictured is the Lore set.

I must have messed up the time stamps so the first batch of videos are under 2 minutes and a few others uploaded that are way too long. The next batch are correct but I don't have our youtube login so I can't delete the mistakenly uploaded videos

"a page torn out of a bible"

Which page was it? 🙂

I have a bunch more pics and am starting on a blog update. This event was awesome, and not just because I won it. Time to watch these videos.

I'll be streaming these decks starting with Craig's Zacama Oath on tonight's stream. Then I'll be doing one per stream until I get to Ben's list.
Unfortunately Oath hates me so I expect no success tonight.

Happy birthday big dawg Hazard! Too bad you didn't win that Taiga; maybe next time? 😉

Looks like a blast, if Ohio were closer to Iowa I would have been all over this.

Not sure how I feel about a page torn out of a bible, but glad everyone had fun!

I really love that 4c Leovold list. Any deck that runs Tasigur is awesome!

I am sad I had to miss this, and hope that hazard had a great time at his birthday, on the plus side I supplied Magnus with a new playmate!

@mdkubiak The bible page was not torn out specifically for this, but rather taken from a box full of random bible pages that I have acquired over the years.

@shaman-ben That sounds vaguely Ben Perry like. haha
