2005-07 Precon Championships: Round 5 and the Leaderboard
Welcome back to the biggest ticket in preconstructed Magic, the Championships! We had an exciting second round of Tinsman Division action which left more than a few of our predictors holding ripped-up ticket stubs, but what’s a competition without the occasional upset? We’ve had some twists and turns on the ride thus far, and with plenty of action ahead nearly anything can happen. Congratulations are certainly due to Future Sight’s Fate Blaster, the divisional winner.
2005-07 Precon Championships: Tinsman Division (Part 2 of 2)
Last week saw the introduction to the Tinsman Division, one of the competition’s most storied. It was from here that the winner of the very first competition came, when Eldrazi Arisen overcame tremendous odds by beating a Duel Deck, a Planechase Deck, and a Duels of the Planeswalkers deck before claiming victory from its setmate Invading Spawn in the final. In subsequent seasons it has seen success elude it, though it did claim Rosewater Conference honours in the 2010/2011 season as Doom Inevitable completed a similarly unlikely run before falling in the Finals to Elspeth.
2005-07 Precon Championships: Round 4 and the Leaderboard
Welcome back to the season’s most exciting Magic: the Gathering event, the 2005-07 Preconstructed Championships! We’re now halfway through the Rosewater Conference’s other Division, the Tinsman, and we’ve had some fantastic matchups. Sadly for most, the overriding principle here is the Highlander ultimatum: there can be only one. Of the eight decks that draw into the Tinsman, four of them have been cut their walking papers, with a further three to follow this coming Saturday. It’s a harsh business, but to lessen the severity is to lessen the glory.
2005-2007 Precon Championships: Tinsman Division (Part 1 of 2)
We’re already two weeks in to the 2005-07 Preconstructed Championships, and what a battle it’s been! With Endless March eagerly waiting for an opponent to determine the future of the Rosewater Conference, we next turn to the Conference’s other Division, the Tinsman! This week and next the eight competitors will be battling it out for the chance to go all the way- Conference champions destined for the finals. But we’re getting well ahead of ourselves, for first we must see who’s going to advance past the opening round! With a mortality rate of 50%, the decks lining up at the gates today are going to need every weapon in their arsenals, every trick in their books… and maybe even just a little luck to go with it!
2005-07 Precon Championships: Round 3 and the Leaderboard
Magic players and sports fans of all ages, welcome back to our Prediction League update for the 2005-07 Preconstructed Championships! It’s been a week of highs and lows, but above all we at last have a champion for the Nagle Division. Of the eight decks to start in the Nagle, it was down to a field of four that had only one thing in common: they had eliminated another theme deck to get there. But as is so often said, there can be only one, and so one and only one deck had to emerge from the fray.
2005-07 Precon Championships: Nagle Division (Part 2 of 2)
In last week’s exciting opening-round coverage of the Nagle Division, we found eight decks taking the field to compete for their shot at glory. The battles were hard-fought and hard-won, and by the end of the day only a quartet of contenders were still standing to advance. Today, three of them will have their hopes and dreams destroyed, but one of them… one of them will wrap itself in the Nagle banner and ready itself for the semifinals of the Rosewater Conference.
