The Banned Bracket: The First Round


We've had a lot of bannings in Standard recently. In fact, there have been so many bannings that it's possible to make a 16-team bracket of decks that were recently banned in Standard! In an effort to figure out which banned deck is the most broken of them all, Seth and Crim have been playing through The Banned Bracket on stream (you can catch the Top 8 on Tuesday at 6 pm EST, at twitch.tv/mtggoldfish). The first round is in the books. Eight decks are through to the Top 8, while eight decks went home early. Here's what happened!

Conclusion

Anyway, that's all for today! If you like the idea of The Banned Bracket, make sure to check out the Top 8 live on Tuesday at 6 pm EST at twitch.tv/mtggoldfish. What do you think will come out of the Top 8 as the victor and be crowned the most broken banned Standard deck of them all? Let us know in the comments! As always, leave your thoughts, ideas, opinions, and suggestions, and you can reach me on Twitter @SaffronOlive or at SaffronOlive@MTGGoldfish.com.
