t<span style=”color: #222222″>he culmination of a series of 8 Qualifying tournament beginning last February. Sixty-four players were invited to the event based on their excellent performance in the qualifying events. </span>

<span style=”color: #222222″>These 64 players played the Swiss rounds of the event on Sept 20th, and the Top 16 earned the right to compete on the second day of the event. Although the Top 16 rounds were run after the Secrets of Solis: Unveiled update, the new cards were not allowed due to their release only a few days prior. </span>

When  the dust had settled, it was Zwaxor who took the title, piloting his midrange Dysian deck to the title after a dominating performance in the Top 16 where he lost only two games on his way to the championship. The second place finisher was perennial draft leader Stillhadalldeez, who proved that he has the chops to play Constructed as well!

For his victory, Zwaxor earned 35,000 Gold, as well as the right to work with Stone Blade R&D to design a card for inclusion in a future set! Congratulations to him on his achievement, and to all of the competitors and the Forgewatch staff on a great event.

The Top 16 featured a wide variety of decks, with everything from Ghox, Metamind Paragon and Grimgaunt Devourer to BinBen, Lightning Herald making an appearance. Find all sixteen lists below!
