The last Regional of the season is in the books – see the full recap below!
The final Regional of the season took place last Saturday at Collector’s Cache in Lenexa, KS – with 108 players in attendance! This event represented not only the end of the Vengeance metagame, but also the last chance to use the Premiere Set Masteries before they are frozen. Leading up to Awakening’s release, the environment at Kansas featured a less diverse field than seen in the past few weeks (with Black and Red at the top, and Orange trailing far behind the rest of the pack).
At a tournament making the final statement about the previous two years of the format, it was fitting that the final match featured the legendary Black Devious Krillin (Troy Nelson) against the newly omnipresent Red Ruthless Broly (Brandon Mains). Broly took down yet another Regional with the 2-1 match win, and it will be interesting to observe his place in the new meta!
The T4 decks:
- Brandon Mains* – (Red Ruthless Broly)
- Troy Nelson* – (Black Devious Krillin)
- Kevin Bock – (Blue Tag Team Ginyu)
- Joe Picone – (Blue Protective Cooler)
