Wow, are you guys ready to play in a format where Heroic isn’t such a big thing? It’s back to back Heroic wins in the last two league; I think we need a break from any format with the word “Standard” in it. What say you?
None of which is to detract from the victory of our … victor.
League #4: Standard Silverblack – Winner!
Congrats to Punninglinguist for his win, piloting UW Heroic in the finals against Cyrulean, who fought valiantly with his Mono Red Heroic list to steal the win but who, in his own words, fell just one mana short from taking the match. Sounds like some good Magic to me!
For winning the event, Punninglinguist gets 10 tickets and the final vote in the format for our next event.
As the top-ranking patron, Cyrulean also earns 10 tickets for the event.
Congrats to you both!
Share your lists!
The veil of secrecy may now be lifted. My list was out there for the world to see the entire event, and I content that it could have won the whole thing with slightly better draws. That said, I will post my list in the forums, and you should too.
Here’s Punninglinguist’s winning UW Heroic list.

What should we play next? I am personally vetoing anything with the word “Standard” in it; aside from that, though, the field is open.
