Season 6 is about to end and I’m taking you for a preview tour of what is to come at the final event of the season. What are the decks, who are the players and what are they going to play? For all the answers, comes inside.
Hi, I’m back!
And I’m in a much better mood than last time, fortunately for you all… and myself.
Personally, I’m quite excited about the next SPDC event. To me, nothing beats SPDC World’s in term of PDC Events. SPDC has been the most popular PDC event for quite a while and the invitation-only tournament is highly regarded.
Since SPDC World’s is next Thursday, I thought it would be appropriate to resume my writing duties and offer you a preview of what we can expect.
And the goblins finally take the gold!
SPDC opted for a new season point system. It took a while to take a decision, and we apologize for that. If you’d like to know where you stand this season and why the changes were made, check inside for more!
I took some vacation time to go to Las Vegas and was unable to attend to my SPDC duties for the last 2 events. I’m back, however, and there are quite a few surprises that awaited me. Standard is definitely exciting this season and SPDC 4.10 was no exception!
Last Thursday night felt like shades of SPDC Season 2 were coming back to haunt us. It’s 2 UR control decks that dominated the tournament, despite WW and blinkdrifter decks showing up in good numbers.
When White Winnies is absent, Blinkdrifter shines and dances.
White winnies are invading standard PDC and conquering all opposition, including Blinkdrifter which seems to have lost its steam. Not a single Blinkdrifter made top 8 while all four WW decks made it to the playoff rounds and three made top 4.
If some are upset at its domination, there are certainly a few hosts that are most grateful for WW’s domination saving more than an hour of hosting duties.
The big guns were out last Thursday night for an all-out war between aggro and blinkdrifter. Blinkdrifter was the most played deck (5), but it’s the 12 aggressive decks that filled most of the metagame with nearly half the field of 26 players playing aggro.
