The Houston contingent woke up at ass-o’clock to head to Austin

A situation made significanly better by koláče and klobásníky at Hruska’s in Ellinger

Elijah ruins what could’ve been a lovely overview of what the venue looks like.

Our fearless leader, Mike, makes the opening annoucements.

One of the stranger board states of the day.

3 Leyline in the opener is okay against Survival, right?

When they reach to read Blightsteel, you know you’re having a good time.

Another great couple of shots of the venue.

Hand-drawn proxies are always appreciated.

The battle of the great proxies.

Dan may have won best card in play with Muldrotha, the Gravetide.

Dan one-ups himself with a Bane of Progress

Our winner poses with his prize.

We showed you Houston’s breakfast, so of course we’ve got to show you dinner at East Side Pies.
