Moonshot Invitational $1K Recap - 10/30

 

The FINAL event in the Moonshot Invitational $1K Qualifier Series took place this past week on 10/30 at our Noblesville Store.  This was a Modern Format event to close out the Series before the $10K Championship, and we got to see how creative players can be building decks with the new cards from the Innistrad: Midnight Hunt set.

Nick Roller was able to claim victory and take home 1st Place with his "Rhinos" deck, securing himself an invite to the $10K Championship on 11/6.  Ryan Neal's "Bring to Light" deck was good enough to snag 2nd Place and also earned him an invite to our Championship.  Kaleb Busby's "Orzhov Hammertime" deck was strong enough to earn him a 3rd place finish to round out the top three.
