Team BCW had an amazing weekend in Baltimore. The team held a BCW Challenge at MTGFirst in Glen Burnie during the May 4th Friday Night Magic. We had over 30 challengers take on THE Tannon Grace, Jim Davis, and Ross Merriam. The talent pool was deep and we handed out 13 special prizes to the winners and all 30 plus challengers got a free pack of BCW’s Elite Deck Guards.
The May 5th & 6th Star City Games Baltimore Open was another team format. The five Team BCW members were split among 3 teams in the Open. Team BCW members Tannon Grace (Legacy), Ross Merriam (Modern), and Brennan DeCandio (Standard) finished Day One with a record of 7-1-1 to make Day Two. Team BCW member Todd Stevens (Modern) played with Jody Keith (Legacy) and Collins Mullen (Standard), finishing Day One with a perfect 9-0 record. Team BCW member Jim Davis (Legacy) joined with his former Team Metagame Gurus teammates, Dan (Standard) and Andrew Jessup (Modern), and they just missed advancing to Day Two with a record of 6-3.
On Sunday, both advancing teams made great runs to make Top 8. The two teams were on the opposite sides of the Top 8 brackets and would have to play each other if they made the Finals. Unfortunately the team of Jody, Todd, and Collins was eliminated in the Top 4. Brennan, Tannon, and Ross advanced to the Finals, but in a close set of games, they settled for second place. It was a great run for everyone and a fun weekend.
Team BCW will convene next in Louisville. Join us for a BCW Challenge on Friday, May 18th, at Through the Decades Cards. If you can defeat a Team BCW member in a single game of Magic during the BCW Challenge, you’ll receive a prize from BCW, and all participants get a free pack of Elite Deck Guards. Then on May 19th and 20th, the team will compete for the hardware at #SCGKY. We hope to see you there.
