2007-08 Precon Championships: Round 6 and the Leaderboard
After a slight bump in the road, the Preconstructed Championships are back on track. It will take much more than a hetic week to sideline the power and the glory of a season’s worth of precon decks battling it out with eternal glory and supremacy, as they look to scribe their name in the book of champions.
Yesterday saw two matches play out on the sands of the arena floor. First, Tenth Edition mono-White deck Cho-Manno’s Resolve pitted its combat skills against the recursive shenanigans of Death March. The Eventide deck was the clear favourite, with very few staking their fortunes to Cho-Manno and his revolutionary zeal. In making his pick, Errtu drew upon past experience. “I have seen too many core decks win against all odds,” he noted, “I’m betting this one will be the same.” Although it went to three games, Resolve managed to get the job done when it assembled its brutal combo of Cho-Manno, Revolutionary enchanted with Pariah.
Next up we had another Eventide deck, Life Drain, going up against Shadowmoor’s Army of Entropy. This time Eventide wouldn’t be denied. With our predictors more or less evenly split, Life Drain shut out its opponent in two straight, winning with a silly amount of life. Credit to two of our competitors, necrotyr and Triumph, who managed to pick up both points on the day. This managed to move them up to the top of the table, but we still have yet to see one person break out of the pack. Still, Triumph’s pair of points let him draw level with the leaders.
Here’s the updated leaderboard!
