Magic 2010's Results

Happy Wednesday MTG fans,

Although this site is dedicated to standard environment casual magic, we certainly do not limit ourselves to having a look at what the Pro's or serious Magic players are brewing up. Today, we would like to do a very brief review of the recent Magic: the Gathering State and Provincial Championships, also known more commonly as the ' 2010's '. Sunmesa really needs to register a few more domain names as they still appear in the 2009's. btw - they also have a FaceBook page.

From reviews of TCG Players and StarCity Games websites and results, we can provide a summary of what hot and what's not at the standard format tournament scenes. We suggest you head on over to ManaNation and check out some of the first place finishers. First up, here is the list of the Top Twelve deck archetype finishes from all those tournaments.
