Going into a Star City Games event, it’s hard to predict what Twitter will focus on for the weekend. Some popular favorites include who’s announcing, a cheating scandal, pros in attendance, trash talking or sloppy play. Despite the Standard title being taken by Chris Dillahay’s U/W Delver (over a third of top 8 and 16–he’s back!), the biggest excitement was for second place finisher Kurt Crane’s Elf Wave combo deck featuring mana-hemorrhaging green creatures, Genesis Wave and some powerful finishes in the form of Ezuri, Renegade Leader and Craterhoof Behemoth. Switching over to Legacy, a diverse but unsurprising top 8 came down to Josh Cho’s Merfolk deck versus Kenny Castor with perennial top-finisher RUG Delver. In the end, Cho “lorded” it over Kenny and said go fish.
Stole Brad Nelson's Trading Post deck for #SCGNY this weekend. Didn't finish in the money but I did finish higher than Brad. Funnest. Deck.— James Reid (@ThinkTwice_MTG) July 29, 2012

I’m actually rooting for the Delver deck in the #scgny finals. Does that make me a bad person?— Mike Byrne (@SunByrne) July 29, 2012
#SCGNY I really wanted to see the natural ending to that game 2. Having it end with a game loss for those delvers is blargh.— Zombie Food (@TheZombieFood) July 29, 2012
216 players for the SCG Legacy Open in Buffalo. Pretty psyched! #scgny— Francisco Iramain (@firamain) July 29, 2012
