Magic is usually a one-on-one sport, and even when you are battling against friends you often have more than the requisite three for a team event. So it should come as no surprise that some brave souls decided to trek up to the Open in Worcester without teammates, hoping to find similarly unaccompanied free agents looking for teammates. Today, we had two such teams.
U/W Control versus Esper Control is a matchup that is very important in the new Theros metagame, and once more they meet here in the semifinals in the hands of two practiced and talented players. Who can come out on top in this Sphinx’s Revelation battle?
The two biggest players week one in the new Theros Standard have been Esper Control and Red Aggro. For much of the day, we’ve seen Mono-Red prey on Esper while falling to U/W… whereas the U/W decks fall to Mono-Red! Can Paper pull of the upset against Scissors, or will Phillip’s team of little red men cut straight through the control deck?
