Going for the Gold – Onward to Kyoto? (Part 3)

“And finally I’d like to introduce you to our Pro Tour Kyoto Champion Sammy T” And of course, that’s when I woke up from my dream. It must have happened at least four different times during the flight. I guess that’s what happens when you're on an 11 hour flight. Either way, my head would bob up and down during the flight and I even walked up and down the aisle so that my legs didn’t...

Going for the Gold – Onward to Kyoto? (Part 2)

Going for the Gold – Onward to Kyoto? (Part 2) When we left off, I was 6-3 and looking forward to Day Two of Grand Prix Toronto. Remember, the stakes were high and I really wanted to 6-0 to give myself the best shot to skip Pro Tour Kyoto. So there I was, sleeping in my own bed while playing a Grand Prix, what a luxurious feeling… and then my alarm went off… 7:30 am, better get up. One of...

Did you read the first part of this article? If not, click here. So when we left off last week, I had just stolen game one. Just look at that shocked face! FYI: I was checking to see if anyone else noticed how I...

Going for the Gold: My Vegas Legacy Top 8 Match: Grixis Delver vs Lands [Part One]

As promised last time, I thought it would be nice to cover the Top 8 match from my Legacy Top 8 a few weeks ago at Grand Prix Vegas. If you haven't had a chance to watch the match, click here. It would probably help to watch before I go through my explanation so that you can follow along. Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert in Legacy and this was my first major tournament in this format in a...

Going for the Gold: Leaving a Legacy with Grixis Delver in Vegas (6th)

Before we even get into today's article, just in case you missed the title.... I finally secured my second Grand Prix Top 8 in my Magic career at GP Vegas, in Legacy! Not only that, but this finish allowed me to lock up Gold for the second consecutive year in a row, and made it so that I no longer need any more tournament results. Man, does that feel nice! This Top 8 feels like it has been such a...
