Captained by Jim Davis, Team Metagame Gurus is comprised of highly ranked MTG players. Meat Team MGG. While members of the team compete at GPs and WOTC pro events, they focus on the Star City Tour Open Series. The Challenge a Guru events are normally held in conjunction with Friday Night Magic at a game shop near the respective SCG Open convention center. When Challenge a Guru events are scheduled, they will be announced on Facebook and Twitter by BCW Supplies.
Challenge a Guru events are free for the gamers, but players are encouraged to participate in the store’s FNM. So everyone that wants to Challenge a Guru gets a chance, these are single “gunslinging” games. The challenger can select from Standard, Modern or Legacy format. Rick from BCW Supplies manages the schedule – just inform him you want to “Challenge a Guru” before it gets too late in the night.
If you defeat a Guru in a game of Magic, you’ll receive swag from BCW Supplies. This normally includes a BCW Deck Case LX and an “I Beat a Guru” t-shirt, although the prizes may vary. Inked Gaming usually throws in some cool playmats too!
