Eight weeks ago, one hundred and fifty-two players, representing fifteen countries across the world, gatherered to play the first swiss round of our Standard Pauper tournament. Now, the swiss portion is finally over and we have our top eight players. There’ll be more news about the top eight soon, including scheduling, pairings, and player interviews, but for now, let’s give it up for our top eight players, Andrzej “Onion” K, Charlie S, Conor Moran, P. Dalton, Jason Gray, Hugh Kramer, Justin Beckert, and aceracerff!

Final Standings

Here are the final standings for the swiss portion of the tournament. I’d like to thank everyone involved in the tournament for making it such an enormous event and success. Every match played, every act of good sportsmanship, and every kind word mattered. It was a ton to run on my own (without a computer) but you all made it completely worthwhile. Thank you, players, and here’s looking forward to our next big event!

  • Sean Shirato Almon wins a booster of Onslaught!
  • Hans wins a booster from gwyned!
  • Jesse S wins a foil Blood Moon (MMA) for beating me!
