New Capenna Set Championship Day One Coverage

We have the latest Set Championship going all weekend from May 20th to the 23rd this will lead to the finalizing of the slots for the Magic World Championship. On top of crowning a new champion, players who earn requalifying records will qualify for 2023’s return of the Pro Tour as well! So, with so much at stake, let alone prize money and reputation, there’s a lot to cover.


What’s Being Played

Day one starts with three rounds of Standard Constructed and is followed by four rounds of Historic Constructed, all played on Magic Arena. Players who earn a positive record, 4-3 and better, will qualify for day two and a shot at requalifying.

We saw what decks led the field in both Standard and Historic in our respective breakdowns found here for Standard and here for Historic. If you’re interested in perusing all the decklists from the Streets of New Capenna Championship, you can find the Standard decklists here and the Historic decklists here.


What’s Up for Grabs

The first 13 slots of the 32 player World Championship were decided previously. From the Streets of New Capenna set Championship, the top six players will qualify for the World Championship, bringing us up to 19 total slots filled.

The top 5 players from the 72 league players also earn a spot at the World Championship, which includes players like Shota Yasooka, Shintaro Ishimura, Reid Duke, Logan Nettles, and Ondřej Stráský who come into the event in the lead for these five slots.

Then, there are eight slots available for Challenger players currently held by Yuma Koizumi, Greg Orange, Simon Nielson, Tristan Wylde-LaRue, Alexander Rosdahl, Camillo Lukesch, Andrey Zhilin, and Oscar Franco. Not all these players are qualified for the set championship, and we are likely to see several pushed out of the race for the World Championship.

There’s also plenty of cash up for grabs for those that finish in the top seats, but for most, the goal is the World Championship or a top finish this weekend.

Not Undefeated, but Championship Bound

While they did not manage to go undefeated, three players locked their slots to the World Championship by the end of day one with 5-2 records – Greg Orange, Yuma Koizumi, and Simon Nielsen. While there are still plenty of slots up for grabs that will be determined on day two and three of the Streets of New Capenna Set Championships, these players can breathe a little easier knowing their Magic season isn’t over yet.


Wrapping Up on Day One

That’s all for today’s coverage of the Streets of New Capenna set Championship, but we’ll be back with more tomorrow after the Swiss rounds have completed and the Top 8 is decided! Check back in with us then, and you can also tune-in to the official live coverage over on Twitch.
