Ahead of the Star City Games Open in Minneapolis, Team BCW held a BCW Challenge at Lodestone Coffee and Games in Minnetonka on Friday, May 25th. The site was packed with 74 people playing in their Friday Night Magic event. Thank you to the 23 players that challenged Jim Davis and Todd Stevens to games of Modern, Legacy or Standard. We also would like to give a big thanks to Nick Miller who joined us at Lodestone and sat in with the team to take on challengers.
On Saturday, three Team BCW members attended SCG Minneapolis. Todd Stevens played G/W Value Town, Jim Davis played Jeskai Control, and Brennan DeCandio played Grixis Death’s Shadow. Jim finished Saturday with a record of 8-1, and Todd had a 7-2 record. Brennan just missed Day Two with a 6-3 record.
Both Jim and Todd had a solid Day Two. Todd finished the Open in 12th place and Jim made the Top 8. Jim lost in the quarterfinals in a rough match against E Tron. All in all it was a great weekend.
Up next for Team BCW is the SCG Con in Virginia. All five Team BCW members will be in attendance taking their shot at the Invitational. As the Invitational starts on Friday, we will not be hosting BCW Challenge like we do before Opens. Stay tuned to Team BCW on Twitter for updates on the team’s preparation for SCG Con.
