Elite Minion Anssi Alkio may be a quiet, unassuming player, but he is also one of the fiercest competitors on the Darkmoon Faire circuit. With a 2009 Worlds Top 8 finish and a win at Darkmoon Faire Amsterdam, the Finnish wunderkind was already having a pretty good season. He'll be... Continue reading

by Will Brinkman “We tested at first with Flickers, but eventually we said ‘Nahhhhh,’” Vitus related regretfully. Flickers From the Past would certainly be great against Anssi Alkio’s Lord Benjamin Tremendouson deck, thanks to the potency of Brittilize and Spell Suppression in the matchup. While Vor’na has a reasonable chance... Continue reading

by Will Brinkman For those who didn’t make the cut to Day 2 in the European Continental Championship, Cryptozoic ran multiple side events on Sunday to keep players happy. Of course, the name “side events” is a bit of a misnomer, as they come with some amazing prizes that anybody... Continue reading

by David Sutcliffe For Great Honor and with Concerted Efforts, Luca Magni of Italy and Anssi Alkio of Finland had each dispatched the final two British hopes in the quarterfinals, setting up an intriguing semifinal between two different builds of the Fury Warrior deck. Anssi won the die roll and... Continue reading

by Will Brinkman The classic matchup: Mage vs. Warrior. Brains vs. brawn. The intellectual Mage attempts to outsmart brute force, sometimes outmaneuvering the angry fighter. Sometimes the haughty Mage ends up split in two--such is life. Raphael Ait Slimane sat down in the EUCC Quarterfinals with Vor’na the Wretched, a... Continue reading

by Will Brinkman Comeback! Both players exchanged stories about how they were now able to play for a spot in the Top 8. Sweden’s David Kromnow started out 1-4, while Spain’s Marc Roca Ferrer opened up with a 2-3 record. Now, the winner was in the hunt for a chance... Continue reading

by David Sutcliffe This is a match worth featuring not just on its own merits, but for what has gone before. Yesterday, Stuart Wright and Jeremie Tiano faced each other in the feature match arena, with Stuart comfortably taking Jeremie’s Spark/Elekk combo deck apart with his Rogue concoction. From there,...

by David Sutcliffe The cream inevitably rises to the top, and that has proven true at the EUCC this weekend. As the players were seated for the final draft pod before the Top 8, the top table was awash with the best players in Europe. Anssi Alkio of Finland, Vincent... Continue reading

by Will Brinkman Certain coverage people have titled him the Tiger Wrangler. We’re not aware if that has stuck, but it’s certainly a proper name for the man who always has a place at the Top 8 tables in the World of Warcraft TCG. Even when he’s tried to not... Continue reading

by Will Brinkman England’s Paul Graham sat down at Table 3 with Zorak’tul, and his record suggests that he might be carrying Enveloping Shadows. Slovakia’s Peter Jurcovic flashed Paul a copy of the Rogue ability that he had hate-drafted, grinning. It appeared as if that cut might pay off for... Continue reading

by David Sutcliffe We followed Christof Schilling’s draft in the second pod last night. While he was very happy with his deck, the one thing he said worried him was what Laurent Pagorek had drafted, because “he always wins the drafts.” Well, now it was time for Christof to face... Continue reading

by David Sutcliffe We’ve covered a number of the best German players this weekend, but someone we’ve thus far skipped is Christof Schilling. Fresh off a Top 8 performance at the Elwynn Forest Realm Championships, Christof is nicely poised in the EUCC as well, with a 9-2 record that puts... Continue reading

by Will Brinkman “Do you want to get in a game of League?” asked Anssi. “I’m going to rest. It’s going to be a long day,” responded Erik van der Laan. The players here are headed into the first draft of the EUCC, and Anssi doesn’t mind. The Helsinki native... Continue reading

by David Sutcliffe So that’s it. You came to the EUCC, and you did OK--you won some, you lost some--but as the tournament field is cut down to the Top 96 for the Draft on Day 2, you’re out. You’re eliminated. You’re dead. So that’s it, right? You go home.... Continue reading

by Will Brinkman Massimiliano is the sheriff around these parts--the lone gunman with his Paladin hero. As the only source of good in this Traitor-filled town, Vakeron’s holy brand of justice needed some help against the evils of Vor’na the Wretched. Thankfully, he had the most epic of Alliance allies:... Continue reading

by David Sutcliffe We met Kim Morawa and her Kuma deck earlier today, and in the 6 rounds since then she has carried on her vicious streak to reach a 7-2 record. Unfortunately, 7-2 is right at the point where things start to get awkward. Win from here and you’re... Continue reading
