Congrats to Bryan Hockey as the proud owner of our Abyss playmat, and the newest addition to the Festival of Friendship championship bracket!
As you can see, our meta was about as well-rounded as you can ask for: a good mix of combo, aggro-prison, and control. I've submitted the top 4 lists to mtgtop8.com, and Sam should be posting pics of all the lists on lonestarlhurgoyfs.com soon.
Thanks again to for battling it out!

I love Sam's shirt.
@shaman-ben That’s a shirt? I thought it was a bag of russet potatoes he cut holes in.
@stuart Librarian brand potatoes are toxic to humans.

I'm gonna scoop up all the "Didn't drop but still last" prizes from here on out! Every misplay = tons of knowledge. Thanks for putting this together and I am looking forward to haphazardly piloting a new deck at the next event!
