There were six Standard format Trials yesterday. They were all thirty-two person elimination events with the exception of the final Trial which was a sixteen person tournament. Each tournament awarded the winner with three byes to today's proceedings. Here are the archetype breakdowns for each tournament and the deck lists for the two finalists.

The finals was for this one was between two Affinity decks. I can't locate the deck lists but from what I can recall they were pretty much stock decks--can't say that I am sad to not type in two more Affinity lists.

Tsuyoshi Fujita's Green-White Slide deck is very interesting with Duplicants in the main and Relic Barriers in the board. I don't know what he is playing today but I will let you know. The Green-Black Cemetery list was also an eye-opener and hopefully that archetype can post some additional results this weekend.

Round two is just getting underway and I need to get to covering the main event. Check back in a little bit for updates.
