Im guessing those prizes are the bare minimum and will go up with attendance? But anyways should be cool to see what decks make the top 16 in a random meta game. Also the fact that Legacy could be brought into the limelight like standard and extended. That would be the day.

Those prizes actually -are- the bare minimum. That prize support covers up to thirty-six players. If this event saw more than that, we could certainly up the prizes. :)

Yes. And also, watch out for that crispy bit on the end of your shrimp. It's a real choking hazard.

Anyone end up going to this event? I was planning on going, but didn't have time due to excessive schoolwork.

I've been trying to google up the results of this trial, but have yet to find them anywhere.

Anyone know how it ended up?

Beastman beat Mad Zur in the finals. Does that help you?

Quicksilver told me there were only 20 people and Team Unicorn took 8 of the Top 9 spots. Since SSG hasn't been doing anything with Legacy, I kinda figured there would be a small turnout.
