Dec. 20-22 saw the second constructed Artifact tournament take place. SeatStory Cup X came right in the middle of the major balance patch, which saw the nerf to a handful of powerful cards. Axe, Drow Ranger and Cheating Death were not spared and suddenly, the meta required different types of decks.
If UG Combo and BR Aggro ruled the previous tournament, SeatStory Cup’s meta significantly slowed down. George “Hyped” Maganzini came on top with a mono blue control — of of the three such decks in the top 8 — beating Petrify’s BR Midrange in the final.
Overall, the playoffs meta was one of midrange/control nature. The final tally shows three Mono U Control decks; three RG Ramps; one RB Midrange; and one RB Aggro. Below, you can see all decks from SeatStory Cup top 8. Clicking on the image will get you to the full decklist.
