    Detroit JT finished 5-1, Isaac 4-2, Randy 3-3. Waiting for top 8 cuts. Exciting stuff

      I heard, grats on placement sir, and know that your opponent is an amazing player who started in January and has been rocking the game big time. He plays locally and we go toe to toe often, trading wins and losses.

      Yesterday I managed to get 2nd place at the California WKO along with an invite to Nationals!

      That said, it was for Star Trek Attack Wing as Dice Masters is for next week.

      Went 3-3, 22nd overall. I blew it in my final game and missed where I had lethal. I lost on the next turn. Even at 4-2, I wouldn't have cracked the top 8. So, that makes my blunder easier to swallow.

      Do we have deck lists for the teams that won?

      Going to the Chicago WKO and am trying to get a feel for the direction the meta is heading and figured this would be a good gage.

      Yes and no. There were some quaility teams in the top 16, let alone the top 8
