Moonshot Invitational $1K Recap - 10-2-21

We're down to the final 5 events of our Invitational Series, and this past week we held our latest event in the Moonshot Invitational $1K Series on 10/2 at our Noblesville Store.  This was the second Standard event in our series since the set rotation, and we're continuing to see how the updated Standard metas are coming into play.

Andrew Branham (Izzet Control), Bob Culp (Bant Party), and Cody Murray (Mono Green Aggro) were able to take first through third places, but have all already qualified for our $10K Championship, so the invites for the Championship passed along to Dawn DeLozier (Izzet Control) who took fourth place and Cody Byrd (Boros Aggro) who snagged fifth place.

The Top 8 for 10/2's event were as follows:
Place Player Deck
1st Andrew Branham Izzet Control
2nd Bob Culp Bant Party
3rd Cody Murray Mono Green Aggro
4th Dawn DeLozier Izzet Control
5th Cody Byrd Boros Aggro
6th Evan Wooden Izzet Dragons
7th Matt Davis Izzet Control
8th Spencer Wilson Mono White Aggro
 

 Moskal's overall points lead was extended yet again as his overall point total has now increased to 98 points - just two points shy of the first and possibly only 2-Round Bye in the series.  With his win this week, Andrew Branham has closed the gap a bit, and is now sitting in second place with 78 total points in the overall standings.  Cody Murray is the latest player to earn himself a 1-Round Bye, earning 10 points this past week which put him at 57 total overall points in the standings.  There are only FOUR events left in the Moonshot Invitational Series!  For a full list of the current standings in the Moonshot Invitational Series, along with all players' current point totals, click here.

This Saturday's Tournament will be back at our Mass Ave location, and will be a Limited format event, featuring the new Innistrad: Midnight Hunt set.  Now that players have gotten a good grasp on this new set and the cards and mechanics it brings to the table, it should be interesting to see how the draft will play out.

Registrations are now open for all remaining events in the series.  We highly encourage purchasing your entry early, as these events have sold out.  Register today for this Saturday's event!

The Moonshot Invitational Series consists of 17 $1K events from June through October that qualify players for a $10K tournament on November 6th. Full details here.

We hope to see you there!
