MTG Meta Report - Pro Support Events Pioneer $10,000 Tournament.

Hello everyone and welcome to the MTG Meta Report! This article is the first installment in a new regular series where I’ll be breaking down various Magic: The Gathering decks, events, and more for you right here on Meta TCG! This week we’ll be taking a look at the top deck lists and what Meta TCG was up to during the recent Pro Support 10K right here in Fort Worth.

The Meta Experience

Sean Murphy, Chris Holmes, Dustin Arnold, and Roger Mcfann

This last weekend, the Meta TCG team took a trip to the Will Rogers Memorial Center to participate in the Pro Support Pioneer 10k. While our representatives played in the tournament, our vendor booth was hard at work on the sales floor. Anytime there was some down time between rounds, our booth was packed. We had a great time meeting everyone who came down to the Will Rogers Memorial Center and we look forward to vending future Pro Support Events. For now, let’s take a look at the decks from last weekend.

The Best of the Best

Although they didn’t win it all, a choice few came out on top. With 129 players, the tournament organizers cut to 8 in single elimination rounds. After that, the top 8 players decided to split the prize money, with only three playing it out for the trophy. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the top 8 deck lists from last weekend.

Pioneer showed its relative diversity as Lotus Breach, Sultai Midrange, Niv to Light, and Izzet Ensoul each put a list in the top 8. Inverter decks also did well, not only did they dodge much-anticipated bans from the B&R earlier today, they put up two 8 finishes. Finally, Mono red also got two lists in the top 8, one of which was first in the standings. Their fast low-to-the-ground strategy is often enough to outpace and out-race the plethora of combo and midrange decks found throughout the pioneer format.

Wrapping Up

We here at Meta TCG had a great time last weekend and we’re looking forward to the participating in future Pro Support events. We really enjoyed meeting all of you who had the chance to come by our booth, and for those of you that didn’t, don’t worry! Soon the store will be up and running to satisfy all of your singles needs!
