Welcome to another weekly Showdown Recap, where we take a look at what happened at Face to Face Games Toronto’s weekly Sunday Showdown, a series of 1k events feeding into the Ultimate Showdown 5k Invitational. This week players battled in Legacy to see who could take down the top prize.
Alright everyone, this is a public service announcement. Matthew Dilks is making a mockery of Toronto Magic, and he must be stopped.
Dilks just can’t seem to lose in any format and this past Sunday’s Legacy Showdown was no exception. Once again he took down the entire tournament with his Lands deck. If you didn’t think he was the best Legacy player in the city before, well, you were wrong and he won another tournament.
Liam Kane, Burn extraordinaire put up an impressive performance with Burn and showed that the kid can win in any format. As you’ll see below the rest of the Top 8 was mostly a smattering of Leovolds and more Grixis stuff that Dilks and Liam ran over. Legacy looks to be in a great place recently and the tournament was a blast overall. If you’re wondering, the Search for Azcanta’s in my sideboard were good in theory but sucked in practice.
Let this recap serve as a plea to the community. Let’s all play four Leyline of the Voids and four Blood Moons in our deck at the next Legacy Showdown and see if Matthew Dilks is actually beatable.
With his win on Sunday Mattew qualifies himself for the Face to Face Games Ultimate Showdown. Next week we’ll be battling Modern for the first time since Bloodbraid Elf and Jace, the Mind Sculptor have come off the ban list. I, personally cannot wait, so get to brewing those sweet new midrange decks!
