2010-11 Precon Championships: Final Round and the Leaderboard

by Dredd77

At long last, we’re on the very eve of the Championship Final! This coming week-end will see this season’s winner crowned and installed in its rightful place alongside 2008-2009’s Dead Ahead and 2009-2010’s Eldrazi Arisen. Last week the field was narrowed down to the final four contestants. Infect & Defile trounced Mirromancy, then waited as Elspeth took down the Premium Deck Series, Fire & Lightning. Now we come to the final week as these two go up against Knights and Doom Inevtiable in the Rosewater Conference to see whose name will be etched in gold ink into the history books, and who will be just another footnote.

Last week’s predictions turned up some surprises as well. The players were about evenly split on whether Elspeth or Fire & Lightning would prevail, and so the final game of the division offered few points to our pedictors. Still, credit must be due to fillip who went 3-for-3 here, and has correctly guessed every match of the Lauer Division. This puts him as a longshot- to win he would have to guess all three of the final matches correctly, our frontrunner Icehawk would need to get all three wrong, and no-one else could get more than one correct. But hey, stranger things have happened, no?

It’s a close race right down to the wire all the same, and here’s a look at the current leaderboard:

Will Icehawk keep the lead he’s had for most of the competition? Or will one of the contenders nipping at his very heels overtake it on the last day of the competition? We’ll find out this Sunday!

Here is the bracket for this final week. To enter, simply predict the winner of the game on the laft (Rosewater Conference), the game on the right (Forsythe Conferece) and the game between both winners.

Best of luck to all- it’s been a great journey and a lot of fun throughout!

    Knights.
    Elspeth.
    Knights.

    Why not? Elspeth would be the favorite in this KvE match up, but my gut says Knights can win.

    is my guess. So Icehawk probably only gets 1 point on this round since that has been my track record in pick 2 and then the winner rounds.

    I can tie with Icehawk, if I get 3 for 3! I’m not as brave as Varo to pick Doom Inevitable over Knights.

      I really have no idea what decks are going to win. This is going to be so exciting. Part of me would love to see a DD win, but an Archenemy deck would just as sweet if not more given they were built for multiplayer not these head to head games.

      Can’t wait!
