2017 Store Championship Barrie, Ontario
« on: October 07, 2017, 08:52:11 AM »
On September 16 we held our first Store Championship tournament. The idea was to hold the event to coincide with GenCon, however with the busy summer schedules not everyone was able to make it to the initial set date.
For prizing we had a TKc with 2 sets of Classic prizing, a Santino BAS card that I was able to get signed and foil alternate art cards printed by Keith0913832 that can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJX_5vwTJzE

I played a Kane deck that used Hell in a Cell and priortized getting Journey into Darkness into my Ring for milling. Back in Classic, this was a mean deck that many didn't see coming and I won an event with it. With the changes in Virtual, I felt that this deck could still do some damage, and it did, when it worked.
Here is the playlist for the recorded events. I was able to get all 6 rounds of play thanks to charging my ipad for the duration of the event.

The day was a fun one. It was nice to see some competitive decks play against each other. We're generally not a competitive meta here, so the different tone was a welcome rare change.

Always good times! Good variety of decks and strategies.

Interesting that we saw three double count-outs this tournament. Eric just picked up new mics so there will be less background noise for future videos.
