The Scania 93/94 players are some sweet guys. Last weekend they had their third "official" tournament at Playoteket in Malmö. The tournament organizer Arkanon sent over a short report and some nice deck lists. Enjoy! /Mg out
Scania is situated in the southernmost part in Sweden. By convenience we have chosen Contract from below as the card all contestants sign as a price. We have approximately 12 active players and another 3-4 players who occasionally borrow decks and participate. Of the core players, four of us have power and four play casual/ budget decks/
|MrSinclair's The Deck. 1st place.|
|Danhor's ErhnamGeddon. 2nd place.|
|Olle's UR Burn. 3-4th place.|
|Arkanon's 5C Ydwen. 3-4th place.|
|Axelsson's MonoBlack Abyss. (6th place)|
|Is it that bad? Perhaps. Is it fun? Definitely!|
I just want to state for the record that the Fungusaur deck looks amazing :)
If you want some more Old School fix, Jacopo Borrelli of Ravenna have written a great primer on Lestree Zoo at Magictime.it. It's filled with both deck techs and interesting trivia. Jacopo even managed to get an interview with Zak Dolan, the original 1994 Magic World Champion, who defeated Bertrand Lestree carrying his Zoo in the finals of the first World Championships. That is awesome. Go give it a read!
Also, I've managed to update the Decks to Beat page with 28 decklists from the last couple of months. Check them out if you're a net-decker ;)
Playoteket 3 93/94 Top4
12 participants. Photos of 4/4 decks.
The third official tournament at Playoteket in Scania showed some solid mages and decks. Mr Sinclair's awe-inspiring The Deck managed to get the best of Erhnamgeddon, UR Burn and 5-color Ydwen Efreet (!) in the top4. Again we see multiple Forks in the top4; clearly a card not to be underestimated.
Drammen 93/94 Top8
17 participants. Photos of 8/8 decks. The first tournament in Drammen gathered mages from across Norway (and a couple from Arvika and Karlstad) to fight for an Adventurers' Guildhouse. The top8 was almost completely dominated by old school beatdown, apart from one Fork deck and one Nether Void Ponza. Su-Chis, Juzams and Erhnams beat hard, and the WW decks beats a lot.
n00bcon 8, World Championships Top8
76 participants, photos of 8/8 decks. Players from Russia, the US, Denmark, Germany and many other places across the lands descended upon the Rotary Pub in Gothenburg to lay claim to the old school World Championship title and the coveted Giant Shark. More players than ever wanted to get in the ring this year, and than he tournament was filled to capacity three months before the showdown. The top8 hosted some familiar names in the format - battling with 3 copies of UR Burn, 3 The Deck, a Lestree Zoo and an Artifact Aggro - before Martin Berlin got to hoist the trophy.
Arvika Festival 2016 Top8
34 participants, photos of 8/8 decks. The third largest, and possibly the sweetest, of the yearly Northern Europe gatherings was once again held in Viksgården in Arvika. The top8 hosted 8 distinct archetypes; from Distress to Toolbox Murderers and Time Elemental Control to Dead Guy Ale. In the end, Lestree Zoo took down Power Monolith in the finals to claim this year's Festival.
