Lucky Order No. 1,000,000!
When Micah Huerta placed his order this week to pick up at #SCGDC he didn’t think anything of it. When he purchased his missing Standard cards for the Open, including Valorous+Stance, matching basic lands, along with a playset of Tribal+Flames for Modern, and Tiny Leaders necessities, the order number came up as 1,000,000. He joked with customer service representatives at StarCityGames.com through email by asking, “What do I get? LOL.”
Micah Huerta holds up his Eturtle Witness parody playmat as part of his prizes for ordering the one millionth order from StarCityGames.com!.
The millionth order was no joke, however. The milestone was celebrated in house and StarCityGames.com Marketing Manager Evan Erwin wanted to make the order special for the player as well. When Huerta showed up to pick up his order he also had a gift box waiting for him. The contents included a set of goodies for each of the four new Creature Collection offerings (playmat, sleeves, and dice bag), along with a StarCityGames.com T-shirt, and a lifetime subscription to StarCityGames.com Premium.
Huerta, who has played off-and-on since Arabian Nights was on the shelves, traveled to the Open from Baltimore with his friends, Jorge and Ryan. A fan of Modern and Legacy, Huerta looked forward to playing in his first Standard event and even got a Round 1 feature match as the final part of his surprise. Huerta tested for the event with his 17-year-old son, Jonas, and was happy to get the playmats after forgetting to bring one from home.

Huerta was pleased to be the recipient of the million-order prize, joking once again, “I kind of wanted an autographed [Patrick] Chapin book, but all of this is OK too!”
Congratulations to Micah Huerta and StarCityGames.com for one million orders and more!
