Classic League 2012-13 is a player-run Classic tournament series, hosted by Classic Quarter (and run by Unlocking the Vault author enderfall), sponsored by MTGO Academy and MTGO Traders, and made possible through generous prize donations from Wizards of the Coast and a multitude of dedicated Classic fans. As you can read about on the forums, the 2012-13 Classic League is broken into several qualifier tournaments, from which successful players will be invited to an invitational this year on July 20th (my birthday!). Below are the swiss rounds of the third qualifier tournament — which is still in progress — from the perspective of me, PlanetWalls. I’ll be sure to keep updating this page with videos from each round, as they occur, so bookmark the page and keep stopping by!
Feel free to ask any questions about the format, the tournament structure, etc., in the comments. You can see all the decklists represented in the tournament in the Classic League forum on Classic Quarter.
In this tournament, I’m playing a deck based on a combo list originally piloted and constructed by Classic player BaldEagle247. Below is the version of the deck he’s piloting, followed by the version I am. Then you can check out my matches.
