Yes arcane Duels were there. Mr. Rose and his druid took second. Force Master 3rd and Sharkbait 4th.

I promise I will post a full tournament report when I get home to Charlotte. I do want to mention some things.

1. This was the smoothest tournament I've ever run. Thank you to my team of Jimillia, James, and especially Jason Bourne Zombie.

2. Even better than the insane skill put on display I saw even greater sportsmanship. Everyone who played did so with respect and class.

3. Yeah Paladin/Siren was popular at Gen Con lol. Understatement of the year but product was flying off shelves. Arena, Academy,and everything else had to constantly never endingly be restocked.

It was a Meditation Graveyard build pretty much like your own Meditation Lair build :)

So thank you Borg :)

I kind of got off to a bad start in the final vs. Larrick (Druid) but we had a history. Anyway that game was very different from our first encounter.

Arcane Duels has the video coverage! Hoping to get commentary this weekend and release it. Also gonna go for some PvS card analysis as well.

Congratulations to Biblo. This was one of the most impressive books and skilled players I have seen yet at Gen Con. It's great to see that we have not reached the skill ceiling on this game yet!

I would love for a Necro to make it through. I don't recall there ever being one at Gencon making it to top 4.

Last year the only Necromancer I remember competing was relatively new and was eliminated fairly early. I'd like to see some more of the dark side this year too.

I remember he played both graveyard and libro against me, and never had mana to get enough creatures out last year.
