Khans of Tarkir Game Day

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

It certainly is an exciting time for Magic: the Gathering players worldwide as the new Khans of Tarkir is now fully absorbed in to standard format and everyone is brewing up new decklists to become top dawg.  In yesterday's post, we yattered about the break-out decklists at the Pro Tour event in Honolulu.  We suggest you check out Josh Silvestri's article at Channel Fireball to see which lists delivered and which fell short of the mark.

The big tournament this weekend is Grand Prix Los Angels and we'll see whether the two big winners in Hawaii, Abzan Midrange and Jeskai Wins will deliver again or whether there will be further evolution in standard format.  Although we will be watching, our focus is most definitely on Khans of Tarkir Game Day this weekend.  At our local gaming store, OMG! Games, things will kick off with Friday Night Magic to give an opportunity to try out their strategies in a more casual environment before the Game Day events following on Saturday and Sunday - see details below.

We now have our most recent order of cards from MTG Mint Card and have a tough choice to make as to which decklist to bring to Game Day - 
• White / Red Heroic, or
• Abzan midrange

Our two decklists are of course not exact but do closely approximate the R/W Heroic build from Yoshihiko Ikawa, and the Abzan list from Alexander John.  Which one to play for Game Day may come down to a coin flip for us.

What do you plan on playing ? - use the comment thingy below.
