Stybs has played Magic the world over, writing and drafting as part of the event coverage team and slinging Commander everywhere his decks will fit.
The Cobb Galleria Centre may not look like much at a glance...

...but it's seated in a beautiful area of Atlanta.

It's hard to feel unwelcome when it's said as loud as possible...

...but even looking down still leads players where to go.

From around the world champions gathered to battle...

...and rejoin friends from far-flung places.

Though sketchy fellows promised to bring all the details...

...there was nothing at all shadowy about the sources being used.

Off-screen information was being collected too...

...but it was a different crew players saw the most of.

For those that became tired on the battlefield...

...or truly lost in the whirlwind around them...

...one needed only to summon aid to be helped.

Some had brought all the seriousness in the world...

...while others found fun at every turn.

Drafting cards was a mysteries process...

...unless it wasn't a mystery at all what one can pick.

Planeswalkers, too, had descended from the multiverse to witness the spectacle...

...but there was a clever conspiracy afoot.

Many had risen and fallen through the ranks as the days progressed...

...yet there was only one once and future King of the Hill...

...who might ultimately take the coveted prize of Pro Tour Journey into Nyx.
