As promised, my third game of T1 on Friday with Gabe needs its own article! Without further ado…
This article is a continuation of a recap of my first Nationals. Last time, I talked about my Booster Draft experience. Today, I’ll recap Friday’s event: Type 1 2-Player.
2016 Nationals was my first National tournament. I had wanted to do a write-up on my experiences and results, but I never made the time to do it. Then I took a mental break of sorts from Redemption last fall. Well, tournament season 2017 hasn’t kicked in yet, and spoilers for the new 2017 cards haven’t been released yet, so I figure now is as good a time as any. Even though the community’s knowledge and familiarity with the Cloud of Witnesses expansion is vastly improved since Nationals, I believe that we can find ways to improve (even in small ways) when we review past Redemption games.
Here’s my tournament report!
Having played a lot of both T1 and T2 this past season, I was really torn on which one I wanted to play at Nationals. In the end I decided to only play T1 if there were an odd number of T1 players and an even number of T2 players (not counting me for either). As it turned out, we had an even number of T1 and an odd number of T2 so I jumped into T2 to make things all even.
Greetings and salutations! Gabe and I apologize for not updating everyone via the blog here as Nats progressed. The church’s guest internet connection wasn’t very stable and the private connection was reserved for the live streaming of games that was done. I was able to provide some results via Twitter and we have now compiled the full standings.
Hey guys, took a bit longer than I planned to get this article wrapped up, but such is life sometimes. I realized today that this will be the 7th article in this series, and it seems fitting that a T2 deck-building series should finish at 7.
These articles will be the final articles of the “Do You Wanna Build a T2?” series, but don’t worry—more exciting things will be coming! I truly hope you’ve enjoyed these articles and that they have given you new ideas or insights into building your decks. Even if you’re still a T1 player for the most part, I do hope you’ll give T2 a try at some point.
