Monday, that magical day, when people head back to work and reminisce about the awesomeness that was the weekend prior. StarCityGames.com held the Inivitational in New Jersey this past weekend featuring the Gold Rush in the form of Mythic Madness, and a rush it was. The main event in the Invitational drew 339 players to compete for the $50,000 prize pool. Through 3 days of competition and 19 grueling rounds of Magic , Erik Smith emerged as the victor piloting Jund in Standard and U/W/R Delver in Legacy.
Of course in addition to the main event there was a Standard Open on Saturday which shattered all prior records for attendance with a whopping 961 players registering to battle through 11 rounds of Swiss for the Standard Title. Jund ended up taking down the tournament piloted by David Reed.
Now coming up on Sunday we couldn’t break any more records could we? Wrong, the Legacy Open again broke all prior attendance records for prior Open Series events with 526 players sitting down to battle with some of Magic’s most powerful cards. StarCityGames’ own Gerard Fabiano took down the tournament piloting U/R/W Delver
