SA: Dragon’s Lair Salisbury Win-a-Dual (17 Players) 03/07/2021 | Deck Lists

A win-a-dual event by SA’s second Dragon’s Lair store in Salisbury. $30 entry with 17 players battling it out for a Plateau in 4 rounds of Swiss with cut to Top 8. Huge thanks to DLS for putting on an amazing prize pool and an awesome event! The Top 8 featured a swath of Ragavan decks (as expected), but most interesting was the prevalence of Jund… with not only 3 Jund in the Top 8 but the Finals was a Jund vs. Jund playoff!

SA: Highlander: Winter Solstice @SGC (23 Players) 13/06/2021 | Deck Lists & Tournament Report

The Winter Solstice This tournament report is a brief summary of the Highlander portion of the Winter Solstice, a weekend of eternal events in Adelaide that had attendance from interstaters too! Background For the last six months or so I’ve had to focus on work and other major life commitments, so AE event coordination and content creation has been (sadly) a lower priority (but I’m glad I’ve been able to jam the occasional highlander event and write a tourney report here and there). So when the question arose “with Vic Eternal Weekend cancelled due to COVID, are there any interests… Read More »SA: Highlander: Winter Solstice @SGC (23 Players) 13/06/2021 | Deck Lists & Tournament Report

SA: Social Gaming Club 7PH FNM May 2021 Adelaide | Deck Lists & Tournament Report

“Highlander for Friday Night Magic?” Sign me up! This week was one of the first events for the brand new store in Adelaide, the Social Gaming Club. The new store run by Charlie Ferwerda has been open for a few weeks and the Highlander scene has just started up, with 8 players popping in to compete and/or playtest in a very chill environment. These smaller ‘low stakes’ events are a brewer’s dream, since we all get the chance to try out off-kilter decks and exciting new cards in a relaxed atmosphere that, despite still having official pairings and store credit… Read More »SA: Social Gaming Club 7PH FNM May 2021 Adelaide | Deck Lists & Tournament Report

SA: Dragon’s Lair Adelaide (14 Players) 11/04/2021 | Deck Lists & Tournament Report

Here is a summary of the metagame, and my experience at the event! The Metagame Ever since Oko, A-call, and Time Walk gained points, the Adelaide metagame has been incredibly diverse. A lot of previously rare archetypes like Affinity, Tolarian Academy ramp, and unpowered Aggro and Midrange decks have finally had their chance to shine. In this event we had a very broad range of decks in the Top 8, spanning the whole gamut of Combo, Aggro, Midrange, and Control! Whilst there were Tempo and Ramp decks in the room none made the top 8 cut. It is also a… Read More »SA: Dragon’s Lair Adelaide (14 Players) 11/04/2021 | Deck Lists & Tournament Report
