It’s that time again! Time for another Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour!
Before we all get the popcorn popped and the sodas poured you should know who to root for, and that would be Team Cardhoarder of course! For Pro Tour Amonkhet there will be 4 members of the team competing for eternal glory. Watch as Joe Lossett crushes the competition, Jack Kiefer takes everyone by surprise, Noah Walker walks all over his opponents, and Bobby Graves leaves no stone unturned in one of the hardest tournaments of their career.
I can’t give you any spoilers on what decks you will see them championing, but you can be sure that they will be cool and exciting! We will see three rounds of Draft and five rounds of Standard each day and then a Top 8 of more Standard. Can one of our Team Cardhoarder guys pull off a Top 8 or a win? Tune in on twitch.tv/magic Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to watch exciting game play and to root on your favorite competitors!
You can also get Team Cardhoarder specific updates by following the players and @TeamCardhoarder on Twitter. I will be doing interviews with the players between rounds and sharing them with you! So to get an inside look at how your favorite Pro Tour competitors are doing, make sure to follow along and tell Wizards Coverage to put them on the camera!
