SCG CON Indianapolis is in the books. Check out the winners from all the events and decklists from the Modern $10K and $5K.
Michael Hamilton won the Flesh and Blood Calling with Iyslander, Stormbind, tallying his third Calling title to go with his Worlds and US Nationals trophies.
Hamilton continues to prove he is the best player in Flesh and Blood, winning his third Calling with Iyslander, following the latest Banned & Suspended announcement nerfing the Elemental Wizard. Hamilton defeated Charles Dunn, on Oldhim, Grandfather of Eternity, in the finals to repeat as Calling Indianapolis champion with a win last year with Bravo, Star of the Show.
Hamilton’s winning Iyslander deck can be seen below.
Despite the banning of Winter’s Wail and suspension of Hypothermia and Amulet of Ice, the Top 8 of the Calling still had seven Ice heroes. The elimination rounds featured five copies of Oldhim, two copies of Iyslander, and a single copy of Briar, Warden of Thorns in the hands of Tariq Patel, a former US national champion and current Canadian national champion.
The Ice heroes dominated the end of the tournament, but Iyslander and Oldhim combined for just over 20 percent of the Day 2 field. Briar was the most-played hero on Day 2, at 27 copies of the 105 players to reach the second day of competition. Fai, Rising Rebellion, and Lexi, Livewire, were the next most played heroes on Day 2 at 13 and nine copies, respectively.
Top 8 decklists can be found on the Flesh and Blood decklist page.
