We had a smaller contingent this week of 11 people as colds and flu ravaged players and even our original venue.
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.
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.
We had a sole mono-colored player, with most players going at least 3 colors.
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.
Going into the 3rd round, there were 3 2-0s.
But alas, only one was 3-0 going into the 4th round.
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!
There will be no Challonge link this time because of drops in the last round. (Challonge doesn’t handle drops at all.)
