So a WOMAN Shocked playing MONO-GREEN ELVES WITH ANT-QUEEN Mad apparently won this tournament.

Granted, the middle of hillbilly country isn't exactly going to draw the highest caliber players in the world, but holy crap.

Wizards has finally done what they set out to accomplish, turn standard into casual garbage. Almost every chick I've ever seen play magic played mono-green elves in every format ever to include draft because "they are pretty."

Now they can actually win.

Thanks WOTC.

Anyone have the full deck lists of those 3 mono-G elves decks that made top 8?

Wow, could you be anymore offensive, stupid, and just plain right STUPID?

Get off your high horse! An obviously talented player won a high profile event with a somewhat innovative deck. If you have a problem with that, fuck off.

Trolling victim #1.

However, my point stands.

SJM wishes that the MTG world was exclusive to stupid nerd kids with no girlfriends and no hability to get one, like himself....

Cause if he had at least hability to get a girlfriend, being around girls playing magic, wasn't a bad idea at all, don't u think? LOOL

So, he must have all the qualities I pointed above... or He's simply GAY... And if that's the case.... Allthing starts to make sense in his post.... eheh (no ofention to gay people)

Luckily to us all, (usually called "normal people"), men that usually likes girls and plays this game cause it's fun (and much more funny if played around Girls), luckily to us, we dont live in the Past anymore...

As already was said, "welcome to 21 century grandpa", because Magic is not anymore the exclusive game of nerd/geek kids, with ugly faces, that prefer to stay inside playing alone with another bunch of kids just like them...

Now, more then ever, MTG is simply a fun game, played by people that wanna have fun with it and with no stereotypes attached to it! Wink



Cya round SJM ( and dont forget to take a walk outside the box where you must be for a long long time now, to still think that way..) Cool bring your glasses... its sunny here on outside Wink

You are also missing the fact that in this tournament, 2 other players from that play group posted top 8 with a similar list. Clearly not a fluke.

5Ks are not irrelevant tournaments, whenever $5,000 is up for grabs, good players will show up in at least moderate numbers. Sure, maybe it isn't as stiff competition as a PT, but its not like a FNM. On a similar note, to call Nashville "Hillbilly Country" is ridiculous. Nashville, including the surrounding metro, is populated by well over 1 million people, not exactly "the sticks."

Elves are clearly not only a casual strategy anymore. PT: Berlin much? Granted this a different sort of elf deck, but an elf deck all the same.

Saying Standard has become "casual garbage" is meaningless. In every format there are casual decks and serious decks. The difference is that this a deck that won its pilot $5,000 in a sanctioned tournament. To me this sounds like the definition of competitive, not "casual garbage."

While it is true that this game is played predominately by males, doesn't mean women are at any disadvantage if they have had the same amount of experience. I think it is totally understandable
why few women would even consider playing Magic and that could possibly be due to attitudes like the one stated above ("ZOMG GIRL WON A TOURNEY!?!") Honestly, I'm totally for more lady-players.

What exactly is your point? That women are inferior? That Elves aren't good enough in competitive magic? That WOTC has turned Standard into casual magic? That 5Ks don't matter?
None of these points stand.

Think before you speak.

I played the deck last night at FNM, 4-0 against some good players/decks. The deck really looks pretty solid and definitely worth taking seriously.

PS - how many people on this site are over the age of about 12?
