For the last couple months our Monday Modern tournaments were shaken up by Zendikar Fetch Land prizing. I hope everyone enjoyed changing things up to the higher stakes, winner take all format, if only for the few short months it lasted.Our goal was to get more format staples into the hands of the players, and that has definitely been a success.
Although there was a smaller turnout for the last installment of this promotion, it looks like Modern as a Format is gaining ground in SoCal. Eleven players battled it out this week for their shot at a Misty Rainforest. We ended the tournament after only three rounds of play because Justin Nguyen, playing Angel Pod, was the only undefeated player remaining! Consequently there are more players with an X-1 record or better than not, this time around. Because of this, I will just list final standings.
Don't think for an instant that is the end of great prizing for Modern at Shuffle & Cut! on Monday, July 28th, 2014 we start prizing out at 110%. To give you guys an idea of what your looking at heres an example: last night at our 110% standard 28 players showed up, the two 4-0's each got $28 in store credit and the sever 3-1 players each got $14. Because there were so many attending the random prize got upgraded to a Nissa, Worldwaker!
