I only mention it because I tweet at SCG and Cedric every so often (usually to complain about the 100% disappearance of any and all Regional events west of Texas). I'm usually met back with "Well we're doing this one event in Vegas! That counts as our contribution to the west coast!" And as someone who actually lives on the coast, I find it somewhat insulting. If their inability to do anything here is contractual (non-compete with CFB) then they should say something. But ignoring us and then insulting us with this "tossed bone" which isn't even west coast just rubs me the wrong way.
I didn't hear Cedric say it before, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least. I think us West Coasters have pretty much accepted the fact that SCG has no interest in doing West Coast tournaments anymore.
(As I say this, I have just come back from Las Vegas, lol.)
Our team finished 19th. We lost the last round for prize money (probably would have been 10th-12th). Sucks.
I don't know how much this helps, but our Modern player was on Tron. He played 7 mirrors in 15 rounds, going 2-3 day 1 and 2-0 day 2.) I played Sneak Show in Legacy and our Standard player was on UR Phoenix. We lost to 2 of the top 8 teams. I also happen to know most of the players around the top 32, so I could help what they were on.
Our Tron player lost to Bant Spirits twice on Day 2, including the "win-and-in" for money in Round 15. Kind of got stuck on lands and lost to flurries of Spirits.
*The meta doesn't look that diverse, but I'm definitely surprised that there were not more Tron on Day 2. I assume they knocked each other out on Day 1 and I'm sure that makes many of you happy.
