Welcome to the World of Tomorrow, where Rakdos no longer reigns supreme and Bloodbraid Elf has found sanctuary in Legacy. Atlanta displayed some tense moments in Standard, teaching all watching to always give themselves access to the most colors possible, especially when playing to your outs. Ghost Dad came home, kicking it old school with Drogskol Captain and Dungeon Geist. And a sweet finals match was played out in style with Naya Humans besting a very different type of human deck — Humanimator!
Legacy saw some good play with Blind Obedience and some very bad play with Pithing Needle. When the chips were down, it turned out that Goblins, whether Emptying the Warrens or Belching were no match for Bloodbraid Elf. Tony Chu piloted Punishing Jund to his 3rd Legacy Open trophy.
Gates were Crashed, matches won and lost, the lights stayed on, and combo lost to fair decks. I wonder what will happen next week.

I laughed pretty hard when they said "TAKE HIM DOWNSTAIRS!" for the Dungeon Geists. #scgatl— Eric (@evilbeard) February 3, 2013
Since we call 10 of the top 32 decks "Midrange" when are we going to see a Highrange or Lowrange deck do well? Need better names! #SCGATL— Zvi Mowshowitz (@TheZvi) February 3, 2013
I picked the perfect time to go on lunch break, seeing someone cast Dream Halls into Omniscience into Enter the Infinite at #SCGATL— Joshua Gilliam (@joshuargilliam) February 3, 2013

As much as I love combo, its always kinda nice watching the uninteractive combo decks lose to fair decks #SCGATL— Sean Thielman (@MemoryLapseGuy) February 4, 2013
I feel like Jund is angry at Wizards for the banning #scgatl— Jason Abong (@MTGTwin1) February 4, 2013
I'm just thankful that the lights haven't gone out at the Gwinnett Convention Center! #SCGATL— Ian Elkin (@symphonicelk) February 4, 2013
