Happy Monday peeps,
We do not often watch coverage of the large Magic: the Gathering events, but when it's basically in your back yard and most of your friends are attending, we have good cause. In between all the cr@p we had to get done over the weekend, we took in as much Grand Prix Toronto coverage on Twitch as possible. Mothersite coverage over here - http://magic.wizards.com/en/events/coverage/gptor15
One of our very fav pro players is the great Craig Wescoe who espouses much of our own playstyle but we can't but help root for our own fellow Canadians - in fact 3 of the top 8 were from Canada-Land. In the end, two Canadians worked themselves to the final showdown - Lucas Siow (Abzan Midrange) vs Edgar Magalhaes (Mardu Dragons) with Lucas taking the win. Rather odd that we did not see a ton of that blue - white Ojutai / control decklist making top marks. In fact Craig's GW Collected Company sideboard contained 4x Windstorm to take care of this particular issue which did not really seem to present itself as many may have anticipated.

We sadly admit we were not moved to extreme excitement on the Modern Masters spoilers ‘n’ previews to date but are definitely exhilarated over this one. We have an incomplete G/W (hexproof) Boggles decklist that is incomplete because we could not find these out-of-stock basterds anywhere.
OK, let’s yatter about the art. The Future Sight art was uninspiring but the new Leonin fella rocking those Gryffindor colours float our boat !
