Pro Tour Battle for Zendikar: A Mulch perspective

Hello whoever you are,

TGM Editor Molly Rowe has been bugging me to write a tournament report from the recent Pro Tour: Battle for Zendikar. Since I’m unorganised I have 12 hours in an airport to kill, so may as well do this tournament report. When I read tournament reports I don’t really care about the games, I just want the life stuff. All the stories, so that’s how I’m going to present this one. I think I’ll just write it through as it happened, see how that goes.

Qualifying

Suppose I’ll start with how I qualified. I finished 11-5 at the previous Pro Tour, which I heard one pro call a “min qual”. That’s a little bit degrading. Didn’t feel minimal to me…I mean technically that IS the minimum result you can get at a PT to qualify you for the next one. Not sure how long it’s been like that but wizards changed it from ‘top 25′ to ’11-5 or better’, which I was pretty damn happy about.
I’ve been in Canada since then, just holidaying about. I’m actually on a working visa but in light of qualifying for PT Battle for Zendikar, I chose to take the opportunity to do a few GP’s around it and visit friends rather than finding work (YOLO). It has been unsettling not having an address or income. The uncertainty has definitely played on my mind and wasn’t good for my Pro Tour mentality. Read More →
