Post Tournament Review | Week 6

“Becoming successful is a lot, like learning how to shoot. You miss the target most of the time, but once you learn how to take aim, you will hit your target almost every time.” -Bryce Ward 6/4/2020

For my first competitive Magic The Gathering Tournament, I think I did pretty well. Now granted, I only won my first match and got my butt kicked in every duel after that first game. However, I had fun, and the chance to win $2,000 was definitely an exciting prospect.

Feedback For Wizards of The Coast

Playing in the Magic The Gathering Tournament was very well put together, and I contract the team behind it for setting it up. However, I do have one piece of feedback that I would like to make. Instead of making the Day 1 duels best of one, make it best of three. I understand the need to make Day 1 harder for players to pass into Day 2, but I feel it would have been much more fun to be given a chance to learn what decks my opponents were playing and come up with a way to counter it. This way, players with different decks have a better chance to shine.

Day 1

In fact, because Day 1’s matches were best of one, the decks that dominated the Tournament had very similar strategies thanks to a few key cards. As a result, after the Tournament, the two cards shown below have been banned from the Standard Format.
