If you didn’t see the post on our Facebook page, we had 24 players for Commander on Friday, January 4th. So we ended up with 6 Commander pods, as well as the 14 Standard players! Something Bailee started at the end of last year was recognizing the pod winners with a short questionnaire. From last weeks pods Bailee was able to interview 4 winners.
The first winner of the night was Jesse C. His commander was Maren, of Clan Nel Toth. The changes he wants to make to the deck are to get more foils for it. The most surprising thing that happened during the game was getting hit from dinosaurs for 18 damage…dinosaurs…. The Ravnica guild which Jesse would be a member of is Izzet.
Kurt S was the next pod winner Bailee had the opportunity to interview. He is another proud member of the Izzet guild from Ravnica, after all they have dragons. The thing that surprised Kurt from his match was Mitch’s deck. He thought the mono green deck was cool. When asked if he will be making any changes to his Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck he said no, why mess with perfection(or maybe that he was too lazy to change it.)
Adam H returns to the winner circle for the second week in a row, with the same deck. He is in a 2 week win streak with is Nin the Pain Artist deck. When Adam won the previous week he said he was going to add more creatures. The thing that surpises him most about the deck is the pace of it. He felt it has a good tempo. The guild from Ravnica Adam is a member of is Selesnya.
The final pod winner we get to recognize is Josh T. Though he won he felt his Estrid, the Masked deck needs more win cons and less grind. Ravnica Allegiance has a possible additional win con for Josh in Simic Ascendancy. Josh declared his allegiance to Simic when asked which guild he belongs too.
Winners 5 & 6 were either missed by us or refused to answer Bailee’s questions. We look forward to seeing you for Commander Friday Night Magic every Friday at 7 pm.
