Congratulations to our champions! Legacy winner Shaheen Soorani and Standard victor Patrick Shifflett have taken the Baltimore trophies for their own. Catch @SCGLive next week for #SCGVegas, with commentators Mike Flores and Patrick Sullivan!
Dan Signorini first made Open Series headlines with a BUG-fueled Legacy Open victory in early 2011. With Abrupt Decay and Deathrite Shaman, he’s back in business! Shaheen will be hard-pressed to fight through his potent disruption.
Two Esper Stoneblade enthusiasts met in the semifinals—but one of them was playing BUG Control. Brian Braun-Duin has been trying to jam Deathrite Shaman these days, and has finally met success with a Top 8 showing.
Dredge had taken Dan Walton right into the Top 8, while Alix was among the many players seeing success with BUG. His version incorporated Delver of Secrets in contrast to the more controlling archetypes, along with Tombstalker!
Every match in Top 8 featured one Rakdos enthusiast—this one featured Danny Goldstein, piloting a build with access to multiple sacrifice outlets and extra undying. Andrew, on the other hand, fought for the Azorius Senate.
B/R Zombies made a statement by taking more than half of the top 16 slots. Can Jund or Naya dethrone the king? Or will it be UW Control back on top? And make sure to check out Ali Aintrazi's 5 Color Control list as he tries to take home his third StarCityGames.com Standard Open trophy in Baltimore!
