Here’s a breakdown of the meta on the day;

So, plenty of Emrakul’s came down on Sunday, and even though we had 3 DnTs and Grixis Delvers, we didn’t see any in our Top 8!

This meta took us to a Top 8 made up of the following decks:

1st/2nd: OmniShow, UR Control ft. Delver
3rd/4th: ANT, Elves
5th-8th: OmniShow, Belcher, BR Reanimator, Eldrazi Post

Now, Dillon and Tim (1st and 2nd) actually prize split, and have yet to battle it our for glory, so they remain equal in our eyes.

Onto the deck lists for our Top 8! 4 out of the 8 are members of the CBR MTG family, making all of us proud.
