This past weekend saw the unfolding of the first ever Magic the Gathering Player’s Championship. All original concerns about the tournament structure and what it was replacing flew out the window as players enjoyed the spectacle of back-to-back matches between some of the best players in the game. This three day event featured Modern, M13 Draft and Cube Draft formats, testing a wide range of player skill, experience and practice.
