Dragon Prix Recap
The first ever Dragon Prix took place last weekend in New Orleans (hosted by Sword N’ Board), with 87 players in attendance! As the first event to incorporate both the Frozen List and Awakening, participants faced a mostly unknown environment.
While the outcome of Worlds will cement the first-wave of the Awakening metagame, the results from New Orleans have made one thing resoundingly clear – there’s a new regime in town, and it’s led by Goku. Red Ruthless Goku, Saiyan Dynamic Goku, Orange Retribution Goku, and Red Ascension Goku were all present in Top Cut – with Orange Retribution Roshi rounding out the ranks. As we approach this weekend, which decks will we see rise to the level of rainbow Goku and Orange Roshi?
The Top 4:
- Sundeep Kutumbaka – Orange Retribution Roshi
- Andy Schultz – Orange Retribution Roshi
- Matt Smith – Red Ruthless Goku
- Howard Autin – Red Ruthless Goku
Note: The fourth invite was grandfathered from Sundeep Kutumbaka to Lynden Obarr. Only four spots remain on the 2016 Qualified Player List!
