Evan Erwin was on-site when the new Solar Pox deck won the StarCityGames.com $1,500 Standard Open – and he got it all on video! Today’s article sees this incredible deck face off against opponents in Round 7, and both the quarter- and semi-finals! Thinking of playing this deck at Champs this weekend, and wanting to learn how to play the deck from first-hand successes? Come look and see!

Hello everybody! Welcome to Special Edition of the Magic Show.

Why is it special? Because today I bring to you live coverage of the Star City Games $1,500 New Standard Open that occurred last weekend. This tournament brought us the powerful new archetype of Solar Pox. Today I bring to you the coverage of Ken Adams’s Round 7, Top 8, and Top 4 matches.

Note: These videos are edited and annotated with no commentary. For example, the Top 4 match was, unedited, almost an hour and a half. Apart from the Round 7 matchup, they include pre- and post-game interviews.

Round 7 – Solar Pox versus Firemane Angel Burn (20:49)

You saw the pre-game interviews in yesterday’s show, now watch the match!

Top 8 – Solar Pox versus Zoo (10:28)

Nathan Twigg faces Solar Pox again, a match he had encountered previously in the swiss. Would his powerful Zoo meet the same fate as before?

Top 4 – Solar Pox versus B/W/R Firemane Angel (21:57)

In this thrilling three-game set, Mike Mihealsick comes the closest to defeating Solar Pox as his Firemanes and Ken’s Haakons duke it out.

Thanks everybody, I’m going to go lie down now.
