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! Check out the Top 8 lists below:
