Charlottesville City Championship Top 8 Decklists

We would like to give a big thanks to everyone who attended our Magic the Gathering – Charlottesville City Championship Tournament this past Saturday. It was a great turnout and we love having everyone at the shop. Although returning three time Champion JM put up quite the fight, after all was said and done Ken Hankins was able to pull off the Regicide. Ken will be getting his name put onto the Winners Plaque hanging in the store as well as receiving a box of each new release Magic set for a year!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present your Champion.
