Dragon Brawl II – Tournament Report

In March, 16 dragon masters from all across the EST timezone lined-up to battle for some gold.

We had a better representation of the dragons this time. Instead of half of all decks being Nicol Bolas, he commanded a more reasonable quarter of the decks out there. Arcades was the most popular dragon in March partly owing to the fact that Joel and Andrew, the only two people who had their dragons assigned randomly, were both running her.

70 players from across the world battled for their community using the Boreal ruleset, effectively 4-Strip-Mine Atlantic.

Capital Chaos Online Championship – Event

We did it! We hosted 33 Old School magicians for a one-day, 6-round webcam tournament. We sent $350 to the Ottawa Food Bank, earmarked for COVID-19 relief.

We really appreciate those who took the time to play in the event as we adjust to our new normal.
