If you study the following picture closely, you will notice two things.


1. My name is not spelled Hoelsman, it’s Huelsman.

2. I MADE TOP 8!

So suck on that BW Tokens I beat you three out of four times.

Unfortunately, I didn’t win in the finals and did not earn a ticket to nationals. I’ll have a more detailed tournament report coming up but I wanted to share the news this morning as I took a day away from the internet yesterday.

I haven’t seen the coverage posted on the Wizards of the Coast site yet but I’ll link when it goes up. If you want to take a look at my deck list I basically played mono white Kithkin.

Josh, Thanks. I would have stuck around longer to watch the other final games. But we needed to get out of there because it was so late. Thanks for your deck list.
