4/10 - Denton, TX - Madness Comics



  • On April 10th, 25 players convened on my local gaming store to do battle! We even had a few come down from Oklahoma with as much as a 3 hour drive.

    This is the first in what we hope to be a LONG line of events. Every Release weekend we will be gathering together to battle with our latest creations fresh off WotC's changes to the B&R list.

    We are also going to be setting up streaming at the next event, look for announcements closer to the release of Eldritch Moon.

  • @infant_no_1 I love that infect top 8ed in this tourney. That is really cool.



  • Every time Greg brings Infect, none of his opponents respect the deck and he goes pretty deep.



  • I respect him. I even planned on battling him.

    I hate infect. :(



  • I love how the infect deck is running 4x Berserk, that's pretty awesome



  • I dunno about respect... but infect is no joke. It just LOOKS like one... then you're dead.



  • UW Delver Mentor? I wrote "Eldrazi" on my decklist, though.



  • Whoever copied the lists must not have read them very closely. My Oath list was designed by the illustrious Roy Spires, famous DFW area player.

    I just thought you couldn't spell delver correctly.

    Roy prefers his fame be more low-key.
