Most weekends you can find Magic players all over the country either at an SCG Open or watching one from their phones, laptops, tablets, TVs and computers. In case this is your first 20 Tweets: SCG Tournament report let me assure you that Magic does happen at these events. Even so, I thought we would take a break from the whose its and whats its of Magic to show you how the community uses Twitter to experience a tournament.
#SCGKC began with people feeling out their decks and getting into the groove in the first round. It is the calm before the storm. Before the huge misplays happen, before the obvious “cheats” occur and before the Trolls have breakfast. There is one thing you can count on during an SCG Open: Troll gotta Troll. It didn’t take long for Magic’s pride and joy @Owentweetenwald to liven up the party with some #mtgfacts. Owen’s sidekick @dr8sides had concerns about women’s rights … or did he? Things got spicy when we got a peek into how @affinityforblue incorporated Magic into his weekend (recipe please?). In case you were wondering, some Standard and Legacy did happen with lots of winners and losers and fun.
But lets begin how many “gatherings” begin. With a toast.
Well, good thing I got my first loss of the day out of the way early 😛 Trip strangleroot Geist is pretty hard to beat. #SCGKC— Jon Hammack (@JonHammack) August 11, 2012
1-0 #SCGKC gotta love it when my opponents tilt because apparently my deck isn't real— Mike Barnes (@Mike_B_Thats_Me) August 11, 2012
Is there a time when Owen isn't a pretentious attention whore #scgkc— Patrick Pane (@thepanetrain) August 11, 2012
Owen Turtenwald is NASA's latest mission FROM Mars, he is a rover put here to please the women of earth. It's a work in progress. #mtgfacts— Owen Turtenwald (@OwenTweetenwald) August 12, 2012

How do people not shuffle or even cut their opponent's deck in critical moments? Then they don't know why they get cheated #scgkc— Paulo Vitor (@PVDDR) August 13, 2012
