2014-15 Precon Championships: Round 7 and the Leaderboard

The Turian Division is settled, with a champion deck from amongst the eight ready to take its place in the Final Four. It was also a rocky road for our predictors, as is often the case with the second “deciding” week in any division. It’s a challenge to predict the winner of four straight matches, but in the deciding week you don’t know which two decks it’s going to come down to. In an intriguing twist, two of our predictors even picked decks to win the division that they picked against in the first two matches, just to hedge bets.  Read more

Meddling Dangerous Knowledge

Another week, another Eldritch Moon Meddling! This week on Gathering Magic, I break down Unlikely Alliances with an eye for improving the deck. As with all Meddlings, I follow two ‘golden rules’ when it comes to brewing:

  1. I can only add in uncommons and commons. No rares or mythics!
  2. I can only use sets already contained within the deck (in this case, Shadows over Innistrad and Eldritch Moon).

Stop on by and let me know what you think!

Welcome back! We’re almost halfway through the Championships, with the Rosewater Conference down to its final two contenders. It’s time now to head over to the Forsythe Conference, with some exciting Turian Division action.

We have four matches lined up today, and by the end of it the field of contenders will be cut down by half. One of these decks today will have a chance to go for gold- but first, they have to get past their opponents. Let’s head down to the pit, where the matches are underway!  Read more »
