The Ultimate Graveyard Block – What Everyone Played

 

One thing I am known for in my playgroup is the ability to create interesting formats for strange tournaments, and it’s been a long time since I’ve done so. The last interesting format we did was The Gold Standard Challenge, quite some time ago, and so I felt it was high time that we did another cool tourney again.

This time, our format was called The Ultimate Graveyard Block. And what a format it was! We finally sat down to play this format over the weekend, and had a blast doing so. Today, we’ll be going over each person’s deck, and tomorrow, I’ll go over the event itself.

The EDH Battle Royale VI: The Main Event’s Grand Finale!

 

With the dawn of the new year, we resumed the sixth annual EDH Battle Royale! Spells have been furiously cast, battlefields destroyed, many creatures and monsters clashed, and we have had several upset wins thus far.

We had three brackets with four decks each (giving us twelve playoff matches total), vying for a title shot at our reigning champ from last year. Currently, we know three of the four finalists.

Today, we will witness two massive matches: first, a playoff match between the two generals who fought to a tie in Block A, Wort, the Raidmother vs. Nekusar, the Mindrazer, and then, in our main event, we will see a huge showdown between the three winners of each Block and last year’s champ, Isperia the Inscrutable!

Who will emerge triumphant from the final bracket? Can Isperia be the first champion to ever successfully defend her EDH Battle Royale title?

It’s time for our final matches of The EDH Battle Royale VI!
