These two players came into the tournament as Leaderboard leaders, earning their spots in Seasons 3 and 4. Now one of them was going home. Would Joe's W/U Heroic carry the day, or Kevin's Jeskai Tokens?
The battle of the beards where only the winner gets to keep playing Magic! Chris will be on the play with the better record and is playing Jeskai Tokens while Derrick is the lone Abzan Reanimator in the tournament. Which player lives on to battle Legacy?
Both players started out 0-2, but a win would mean they’d have the play in their elimination round in Round 4. Would Chris get there with Jeskai Tokens or could Tom improve to 1-2 with W/U Heroic?
With both players sitting at 1-1, Ross Merriam and Joe Lossett both need a win to avoid the elimination rounds. Would Ross’s Jeskai Tokens or Joe’s W/U Heroic prevail?
Kent, equipped with Mardu packed with Stormbreath Dragons, enters Round 2 looking to rebound with a win after dropping his first match against Gerard Fabiano. Kevin is one of many players piloting Jeskai Tokens and is seeking a 2-0 start. Which player and clan will get the win?
These two competitors were the first two to punch their ticket to the Players’ Championship back in March. Both players brought Abzan to the table; Sheets has shown up with Abzan Reanimator, while Braun-Duin has a more aggressive style.
The two Pod 4 players meet up in Round 1, both bringing Jeskai Tokens to the table. Will the Season Four Invitational winner or the near back-to-back Open winner start the event on the right track?
Steve Mann had to sweat his spot in the Players’ Champion right up until the last minute, but he ultimately found his way here, bringing W/U Heroic to battle against Season 2 Points Leader Chris Vanmeter’s Jeskai Tokens.
Ross Merriam and Steve Mann sat down for the classic matchup of “mana guys versus burn spells,” as Ross brought his trademark Combo Elves while Steve was likewise staying true to form with Temur Delver. The Loser faced potential elimination, while the winner could lock up a seat in the top 4!
Both players are 1-1 in Pod A and are playing for position to see how the elimination rounds shape up. Joe is looking to battle through Brian’s permission from Jeskai Stoneblade and win with a monster before BBD takes control.
Steve is looking to improve to 2-0 in the Pod with Temur Delver after a win over Reid Duke, while Tom is doing his best to not to fall to 0-2 after dropping his first match of the day to Ross Merriam. Will Steve’s history with Delver of Secrets push him past the experience Tom has with Infect?
One might have expected a control mirror out of these two coming into the event, but Joe Lossett had flipped the script and brought a twist on Reanimator for this event. Gerard was true to form with Sultai Control, and they sat down for a tense bout with a seat in the top 4 on the line.
Both players from Pod A are looking to get their giant monsters into play ahead of schedule. Would Brad, who didn’t have to play Legacy yesterday, sneak Emrakul into play for the win or could Joe reanimate a Griselbrand first?
These titans of the Open Series have met in the feature match arena twice this year, and Tom Ross emerged victorious both times. Could Ross Merriam earn the win for Combo Elves when it mattered most, or would Tom Ross continue his streak with Infect?
Both of Stephen Mann’s Legacy matches so far have been against the twist on Reanimator brought to the table by the Nerd Rage Gaming duo. Stephen had bested Joe Lossett earlier with his Temur Delver deck, but could he also get past Kent Ketter?
A win for either player will get them into Day 2 of the tournament. Will Chris VanMeter and Reanimator be able to get his monsters into play before Tom can Infect him?
Kent Ketter brought an innovative build of Reanimator to the table in a bid to catch his opponents off guard, while Logan Mize hoped to continue his winning ways with Omni-Tell.
Going into the match blind, one would assume it would be Miracles vs. a Delver deck, but only half of that assumption would be correct — and it wasn’t the Miracles side. Joe mixed things up, bringing a spicy Reanimator list to the event, while Steve had Temur Delver. Would the change benefit Joe or would Steve’s assault of insects and elementals be enough?
