SCG Tour Online: Results from the Weekend of July 23

Courtesy of Star City Games and Wizards of the Coast

The SCG Tour Online is back! Star City Games is one of Magic: The Gathering’s largest and most prestigious tournament hosts, and on Tuesday of last week, they announced that their MTG Arena-based tournaments would be returning beginning this weekend and running through October. You can find more information about the tournament structure on our coverage of their announcement.

Regular readers of our site might already be aware that we run a weekly report that presents tournament results from each weekend (find this weekend’s tournament report here). However, each weekend will be host to as many as eight SCG satellite tournaments leading up to a $5k Championship qualifier event every Sunday, so it made sense to present them in their own separate series to avoid drowning out other results.

For now, all of the SCG Tour Online events feature the current Standard format. Participants in the satellite events that run each Friday and Saturday earn points that qualify them for the 5K Championship Qualifiers that take place on Sunday. Players who do well enough at the Championship Qualifiers also earn invitations to an upcoming MTG Championship as well as a paper tournament hosted by SCG in October.

In this series, we’ll start out by presenting the meta and full top 8 from the 5k Championship Qualifier each week. Then, we’ll take a look at the metagame tables and the top 4 finishers from each satellite event, along with the decklists for each of the first place finishers.
