Those that have observed the post-UDE Gen Con coverage (i.e. MY Gen Con coverage) closely, may have noticed that every year, despite the format, Martin Lieser and I figure out a way to create an X-Statix deck that puts up a fight. Every year, much like the painting, “The Creation of Adam,” he (Martie) pilots the team to almost brushing greatness – only to fall like Icarus. This year was no different. Martin once again went 3-2, missing the top four cut just barely. His last game (which was decided by 1 endurance point) was the game that kept him out of the semi-finals. But I think any time an X-Statix build is above .500, we need to consider it a victory!
I’m referring of course to Lost City, which knew EXACTLY where it should be on August 16th during VsSystem.Org’s BYOTT Gen Con Mega-Weekend event. The card showed up in full force appearing in 6 out of 24 decks!
But we’ll get to that. Let’s start back at the beginning. We headed to Gen Con early Wednesday morning (like 2 AM) from Minnesota so that we could get to the Con by noon. It’s nice to scout out the Con ahead of time, grab badges for those that still need them, and get the coupon books and event books early so that Thursday morning can start off with a bang. And that’s exactly what happened. Here’s the crowd trying to cram into the dealer room.
