This weekend feature the release of Magic Core Set 2014 and its first weekend to start shaking up the established metagame. The SCG Open Series traveled to Richmond, VA and featured a Team Sealed on Saturday to usher in the new limited format for M14.
Pro Tour London (1999) Champion Kyle Rose and fellow team mates Bruce and Steven Cowley battled through the day and proved their mastery of the M14 limited format.
On Sunday the Open Series feature the long awaited Standard format featuring the inclusion of M14. The top 8 featured some of the currently established decks in Jund, U/W/R Flash, and Naya, but also showcased the inclusion of some brand new archetypes to the top tiers of this Standard Season including: B/W Humans, Mono-Green, and Mono-White Humans.
After the day was done and the dusted settled AJ Sacher emerged as your Standard Open Champion piloting B/W Humans. Congratulations!
In Lansing, MI StarCityGames.com also held a Classic Series tournament and the eventual winner of that Event was James Newman piloting G/W midrange.
