Star City Games set Open Series attendance records for both Standard and Legacy this weekend in the nation’s capital. Saturday’s Standard event was taken down by Reid Duke with a Wolf Run Blue deck featuring Frost Titan, Phantasmal Image and Temporal Mastery. Reid had to carve his way through a top 8 that was 50% UW Delver decks. Sunday’s Legacy event proved to be the life aquatic: Merfolk was everywhere. Sadly, the fish were clearly spawning upstream. The top 8 for Legacy featured zero Merfolk decks, with only one making it in to top 16 at 15th. Only a rogue Storm deck disturbed the otherwise lumpy top 8 of entirely Maverick, UW control (including Mr. Duke going for a Reidpeat of his Standard performance) and RUG Delver decks. Ultimately, Travis Gibson was able to pull the RUG out from under the competition and bring home the trophy.
