February 2020 Monthly – Event

February 2020 Monthly

We had a smaller contingent this week of 11 people as colds and flu ravaged players and even our original venue.

Jeskai Skies vs. 5c good stuff

We played at a different Royal Oak location commonly used by Commander players so we were in good company of other Magic brothers and sisters.

The Deck vs. Grixis Dreams

Local rookie Matt G secured his first ever win with Dreams combo versus local legend, Dazed and Fused-Con winner, and Winter Blast 2020 winner, Jimmy D.

Grixis Troll Disco vs. Mono U

We had a sole mono-colored player, with most players going at least 3 colors.

5c Good stuff vs. Mono U

That meant we got to see a lot of Control Magic…

…including this board state, topped off with Lorenzo F using their sweater as a playmat. Apparently, a later game included a Serendib Efreet passed around 6 times.

Erhnamgeddon vs. Grixis Troll Disco

Going into the 3rd round, there were 3 2-0s.

Grixis Rack vs. The Deck

But alas, only one was 3-0 going into the 4th round.

February 2020 Monthly Winner: Patrick

Patrick won vs. the pair down (Mono U) with a Turn 1 Juzam Djinn and wins the February Monthly with a 4-0 record. Congratulations!
