Earlier this month I took a trip to Boston on for a company Christmas Party. On my way home to Upstate, NY I planned to make a small detour through Connecticut to hit two invitational Qualifiers. One in Danbury, CT and the other in Middletown, NY the next day.
I played Rio Trevathan’s modern list from the Star City Games Invitational, the previous weekend. I felt that this would be the best burn build for the time.
After slugging through an event packed with 8-Rack/Small-Pox decks, I ended up with my first top 8 in an SCG invitational! I lost and ended up in loosing to Andrew’s Merfolk deck.
Due to Winter-storm Benji hitting in full force, I decided to stay over in Danbury and drive to Middletown, NY the next day. The only hotel I could find was a Super 8. I didn’t get any sleep and I had some really noisy neighbors. Fortunately, TBS was broadcasting Star-Wars Episode 4, 5 and 6 all night long. The T.V. was just loud enough to mostly drown out the neighbors next door.
