Congratulations, Brian!

Brian emerged victorious from the Theros Throwdown and is now the keeper of this satisfyingly solid set. Brian won with a GW Ramp deck, beating out a WU deck from Andrew that made better use of Constellation than any deck I'd seen throughout all our drafts. Congratulations, Brian!

Theros Throwdown

EVENT DETAILS * What: We will be busting out this entire 270-card Theros Cube for a final winner-takes-all showdown. * When: Saturday, June 3 at 5 PM * Where: Casa Bella in Oakland * Who: Flood (me), Jeremy, Brian, Trevor, and Andrew * With: I'll have a big pot of chili and a bottle of wine on hand. Feel free to bring anything else you'd like! PREPARATION If you are so inclined, you can practice drafting this cube online right here on CubeTutor; just pick "Draft" from the "Playtest" menu above. Be sure to set the pack size to 9, packs to 5, and number of bots to 5. RULES No matter what, we will start off with a booster draft of five packs of nine cards. The rest will vary by the number of players: 1. With four, we will do a round robin tournament, in which every player has a best-of-three match with every other player. The player who wins the most matches will win the set! 2. With five, we will do a variant of a five-player free-for-all in which you win a match if the two players across from you are eliminated. The first player to win two of these matches will win the set! 3. With six, we will do three-on-three teams. During the draft, you will sit between two of your opponents. Then, every player will go against each player on the opposing team in a best-of-three match. The player with the best record on the winning team will win the set! Ties will be broken by the record of the opponent to your left and your right in the draft, in that order.

Sideboard

These are solid cards I'd set aside for a Battle Box. Many of them are blocked in this cube by a better card (or simply a Rare) serving a similar purpose.
