2010-11 Precon Championships: Round 3 and the Leaderboard
What a weekend we had with the Preconstructed Deck Championships! In what will surely be one of the most startling upsets of the tournament, the Knights deck from Duel Deck: Knights vs Dragons first took down their archrival Dragons, then went on to defeat the Event Deck War of Attrition in a tense match that went the distance to three games. Many had hopes, but few had believed that Knights would emerge triumphant against so powerful a foe. Alas, the same could not be said for poor Deadspread, another underdog who fell as expected to War of Attrition.
Predictions were a little less uniform this time around. Knights versus Dragons was a bit of a toss-up, though most readers favoured Knights. Everyone had War of Attrition trouncing Deadspread for some easy points, but most called War of Attrition to win the Nagle Division. Six people can brag that their predictions were 100% for the round, picking up three points: Aaro, Icehawk, Prophylaxis, TheMaxican, Tony, and Joshua (in his first week!). With two rounds down, we now have a clear and unambiguous leader on the leaderboard, but Icehawk’s lead is paper-thin. Will he continue his success this coming week, or will another outguess him and claim the lead?
As always, kindly let us know if you feel there is a discrepancy, and we’ll be happy to verify!
With two rounds down, we still have plenty of precon action to go! Remember, there’s a total of thirty-one games needed to crown a champion. It’s not too late to jump in now even if you haven’t been participating yet. The winner, after all, will be getting a pair of Intro Packs- one from Magic 2012… and the other from Innistrad!
Now for the Next Round
For those ready to make their predictions, here are the matches!
You’ll be making four predictions, which means that four points are up for grabs (1 per correct guess). Tinsman Division action kicks off this Sunday, so you have until that post goes up to enter your predictions in the comments below. Best of luck to all!
