SCG CON Hartford is in the books! Check out all the winners over the weekend and the decklists from the Magic: The Gathering events.

Calling Hartford

Mark Morrison won the Flesh and Blood Heavy Hitters Limited Calling on Sunday.

Morrison made it into the Top 8 with a record of 11-3 in the Swiss, taking the No. 8 seed. Surrounded by some of the strongest players in the game, Morrison drafted Kayo in the Top 8 draft and wound up being the lone player on the Brute.

Morrison defeated Yuanji Li in the quarterfinals and David Lee in the semis to reach the finals, where Cody Williams, the No. 7 seed awaited on Kassai. The finals went down to the wire, with Williams at 1 and Morrison at 2 life. On the final turn sequence, Morrison efficiently blocked out Williams’ attack then powered up a Bare Fangs to attack for 10 to take the match.

Morrison took home $5,000, a gold foil Balance of Justice, and a PTI for his efforts. Decklists will be available soon on the Flesh and Blood decklists page.

Battle Hardened

Yuki Lee Bender won the Classic Constructed Battle Hardened on Sunday with Kayo, Armed and Dangerous.

Bender went a clean 11-0 through the Swiss and Top 8 to win one of the first major Classic Constructed events following the release of Heavy Hitters. Bender showed off one of the new heroes from the set, the first adult version of Kayo, brandishing new cards like Apex Bonebreaker, Cast Bones, Assault and Battery, Clash of Agility, No Fear, Runner Runner, and Agile Windup.

The former Canadian National Champion bashed through a Levia and Bravo on her way to the finals, where she beat Majin Bae on Kano, Dracai of Aether. Bender won $500, a gold foil legendary prize card, a PTI, and an exclusive playmat for first place.
