Great event Shawn, as always. Congrats to the Top 8. I started getting a migraine in my match against Nate and that probably caused my loss of focus to lose that match and then my following match against Sam on Delver. Good games guys. Maybe next time I play ill have better luck. Mulliganing to one twice in game ones doesn't help. Maybe it was Elesh Norns wrath for not being included...

Was great to see so many other familiar
faces make to TPG!

Playing against miracles was the most interesting thing
in quite awhile even though after game 1 I was a little
on tilt.

Again great to see some faces make it even if for
one event shows how great our community is
for support.

I can confirm that these were in the list.

Congrats to Joe for taking it down and the rest of the top 8. Props to Shawn for hosting and Cal for letting me take his deck for a spin. Slops to Keranos - not the card you ever want to see when your opponent has an Uba Mask in play.
