I’m still pretty tired after PAX East. I’ll be hopefully writing a longer post about my own experiences there, but I want to get tournament overview and lists out for people now, in case they want them for events happening soon.
Find them below the cut.
Not a lot of pony players made the trip to PAX this year, sadly. We did a fair number of demos, but the constructed event wasn’t large – just 10 people. Due to this, and people wanting to maximize their time doing other things at the con, we ran 4 rounds of Swiss with no cut. Fortunately the last-round paired down undefeated player won, so we did have a clear finals.
I had my Assistant Manager run and judge the event so I could play in it without causing an issue. Top 4:
Charlotte and Derek also played similar Dream Quest lists, but we had to fight each other a lot in the Swiss so neither managed a 3-1 record. There was a clear top 4 cut at 3-1, so this is each deck that finished with a winning record.
For myself, my game with Donald was fun and extremely close, but I made a misplay on the last turn that, as it turned out, cost me the game. Disappointing and frustrating, but it was an interesting situation that I plan to write about later. Congrats and thanks to all the players (in this or any other event)! Hopefully we get even more at PAX next year.
