And we can't forget our DMIG Invitational standings. We have a new points leader as Ryan McKinney takes the lead from Greg Hoover. When he defeated Greg in the quarter finals he pulled into a tie for first and when he got another point in the semi finals he took sole possession of first place. Congratulations to Ryan, our point leader at the end of the first quarter.
Standings year to date are:
0_1555898213039_a0f6dd6b-69cb-48a9-b6f5-479def1f2423-image.png

We currently have an uncontested top 8 players, though 2 ties within the top 8 gum up the pairings. But there is still a lot of Magic to play and a lot points to be earned:

  1. Ryan McKinney 55
  2. Greg Hoover 54
  3. Joe Brennan 46
  4. Dean Harris 42
  5. Nick DiJohn 39
  6. Chuck Grebe 39
  7. Dan Barkon 38
  8. Zach Dobbin 38

Very close in the standings are you can see are Josh Barkon, Jason Beaupre and Evan Hunterdmark and Stephen Ganter. And dont count out Stephen Harvey who is pushing his way into the mix with only 2 events under his belt this season.

On a side note I want to give a little top 8 report on my match with Ryan McKinney:
Game 1 I'm on the play. I open with Mox, Workshop Lodestone Golem that does not get countered. Turn 2 I drop Tolarian followed by Phyrexian Metamorph on the lodestone. Ryan scoops without an attack from me.
I keep my hand in game 2 with Ryan on the play. I had a chalice, workshop, I think a crypt and then some action. He goes turn 1, black lotus, 3 mox and a land. I stare at my hand think, 'well, that makes this a lot worse.' I take my turn 1 and play out my mana and drop chalice on 2 to shut him off Oath. I figure I'm more likely to draw into ballistas and 3 drop threats than he is to draw into his creatures.
He takes turn 2 and hard casts Archon of Valor's Reach naming artifact. On turn 2. Hardcast. 😞 I scoop without an actual active combat phase.
Game 3 I'm on the play and keep a risky hand with a land, a lotus and a lodestone and some semi-relevant stuff. I land the turn 1 golem and feel pretty good. First swing on turn 2 connects. On turn my turn 3 he abrades the golem. He follows up on his turn 3 with an oath. I respond in turn 4 with a cage followed the next turn by another cage. I land a revoker and chip away. I get ravager and a factory and feel pretty good about things. I dont have a lot of mana to play with as 1 land is a workshop, the other is a factory and I have a mox, crypt and ancient tomb. I sac the crypt to get out from under my own pressure but constantly have to use my tomb to deploy threats like my ravager and revoker so my health is getting low. And then he drops dack followed by another hardcast Archon. I go in at dack with ravager and a spirit token and revoker at him. He chumps the spirit token, I sac a sphere to ravager to kill dack. We swing back and forth. he has lethal next turn and I've deployed 3 factories under his archon - the last on this turn. I swing in with everything. he does no blocks and I leave him at 1 health no matter how I play it. With a ballista in hand that I can't cast. I was at 2 life and he had the archon on board for the win. Games 1 and 2 were pretty over the top manhandling of each other but game 3 was quite the intense and exciting game. Thanks for a great match Ryan.
