It's probably either hasn't started or is in game 1 now. Last I heard they were doing all deck checks.

Well, turns out a deck is abusing some text. I have a feeling the 2 using the abusive dark deck should make the top 2 if their light decks do well enough.

Can I take a guess at who these two are? I bet that they are wearing C1G shirts.

Ha ha, I guess that's true if all 4 of our guys are wearing them. I guess that gives us four from out team in there. I was meaning Schele and Pistone though for the broken rules win. I like how those guys think. I know what Ripp and Lewis are playing and I know it didn't have anything that was broken in any way, just solid.

Staying up till 3 am playtesting and building decks was a lot of fun, never been a part of this sort of intense deck building. The best part was staying awake till 4 am to catch a cab to the airport.

Yeah, its Schele and Pistone's dark. Funny thing is I found the loophole about 3-4 days ago but didnt really put the deck together (no time for errata anyway).

Hope to get updates as soon as it's okay. I'm guessing we will at least get to know who the final two are right? Looks like team C1G is tearing it up. Way to go guys.

Pistone mentioned the deck thing to me this morning but I didnt know who the other guy was. If we do get a Pistone/Schele final thats gonna be a great match. Does anyone at Worlds have a video camera they could shoot this on? And C1G, who are your 4?

Yeah, we're aware of this combo, but not sure if it's something that is "out of line". It's strong, to be sure, but only how it ends up will show us if it's so much that players can't handle it.

On first blush, I'd say it's a savvy metagame choice that is performing very well. Only time will show if opponents can counter it or not.

On 2nd hand information, Piston is 0 and 4 and Schele is 1 and 3. Must be some really broken combo....
