Midwest Masters Series – final results!

A great weekend of magic finished up Sunday night after a 201 player PTQ at Misty Mountain Games in Madison. I had not expected more than 170-180 top side so we were a little tight in the space. the players were all awesome though and we muddled through. I guess that means I won’t be trying to put another PTQ in that space again. We had been getting consistently 150s for PTQs when I ran them OUTSIDE the store in madison, so I thought we’d be allright being back to back with the MMS. boy was I wrong! thanks to all for coming out to the MMS, which had 218 players and SO many stayed for day 2 of the action!

The MMS finished up pretty early, around 7:30pm when the top 4 split the remaining prize and headed home. Following is a list of the T8 decklists placed in order after swiss, but noting 1/4th or 5/8th, 5/8th meaning they lost their quarter final match.
