PPTQ Round-Up 2/7

On 2/7 we had a 12 player standard PPTQ at NH Sports & Gaming Outlet in North Conway. I wanted to touch a little on what decks were seeing play and performing well.

The goal here is to spark more interest in these events, and hopefully showcase some cool decks. While I’m not going to argue that this being a 12 player event makes the results less impressive than had the event been much larger, it’s still nice to showcase the decks themselves.
