This week’s winner was a slam dunk, except for one thing: He’d won the contest last week. Thus, I took a much closer look at the other entries; Spencer Bogan’s Breaking Wind was a funny look at a ridiculous deck, whereas Edd Black’s Three Deadly Wins were hysterical wins – but two of them were about wins that involved, well, cheating. Yet when it comes down to it, it’s hard not to give the award to an article with this punchline:
“I used my Scandalmonger to win game one in the last round of a tournament, playing against a legally blind little old lady, who was using an Elf deck she hadn’t seen until that morning.
“She went on to take the match.”
Thus, Sean Coleman wins the prize, making him (I believe) the first person ever to win any SCG article contest back-to-back. So what’s next week’s $20 Casual Challenge?
The Top Three Best Multiplayer Enchantments.
The difficulty? No Pernicious Deed. And remember, we don’t want just three cards; we want to see the decks these enchantments fit neatly into, and show us why they’re so darned spiffy when two or more players are facing you down. Send your best writing into [email protected], and you could win $20!
In addition, we’re looking for future Casual Challenge themes. If you’ve got a format you’d like to see highlighted or just have a neat idea you’d like to see other people writing about, let us know in the forums!
