Almost 1,000 players braved the seething crowds of hipsters in Portland to play some Modern! Speaking of seething, Jon Finkel decided that the banning of Seething Song wasn’t enough to keep him off Storm, which he piloted to a Top 16 finish with the help of a well-timed Lightning Bolt or two. Bolt wasn’t the only Lightning-based card to spark some conversation, as Lightning Angel was tearing up the tables for quite some time. I’m sure Heather’s heart is aflutter seeing her winged sisters doing battle.
When it came down to it, though, Samuel Pardee (yes we have the same first name; he is so cool!) of #pardeetime fame devastated — the word of the weekend — his opponents all the way to victory with the assistance of a lovely lady named Melira and spome Thoughtseizes. Modern keeps evolving, it seems. #ItIsAnEpochOfCelebration #AmIDoingItRight?

Oh, thank God. Sad to see the kid go, though. A 13-year-old that can go 9-1-2 at a GP is insanely impressive. #GPPort

New game: Every time Zac Hill says “devastating”, take a drink and stab yourself in the ear with a fork. #GPPort

#GPPort has all of my favorite streamers and Magic players. I should have just found a Modern deck and went…

Was so excited to hear Lightning Angel was dominating #GPPort sad to see zero copies in top 8

The worst is that “Devastate” is probably one of the very few words I have absolutely no clue the etymology of.

And that’s that for #GPPort. Great weekend, love the community and spending time in a room full of MtG players.
