Malte Löwecke (AKA AlephYa2) entered today's enormous event with more than just victory on his mind. He had an agenda: to prove that Emissary of the Afterlife is an underrated all-star comparable to format staples like Sangan and others. So far, with a 2-0 record early on into the event, he might just accomplish his goal.
The first tournament of the year has begun! After a hitting a few speed bumps before the start of the event, our 124 contestants were finally able to clash for glory and cash! Some are tournament regulars, while others, like creepinator45, are new to the scene. And though most would argue that with experience comes the confidence to think and act outside the box, this greenhorn's deck of choice highlights cajones that many veterans can't even claim. Ladies and gentleman, this morning creepinator45 woke up and chose violence, Mokey Mokey style.
We are happy to announce the details for the first approved Goat Grand Prix! These events are brought to you by MetaMats.com!

Congratulations to Ivan Rossitto on winning Obelisk Blue 12 and earning their spot at the 2022 Goat Format World Championships!
You can find the bracket for Obelisk Blue 12 here, and view the top 8 deck lists below. If you would like to enter an Academy League event or learn more click here.
The Academy League begins at the Slifer level on the Goat Format Europe discord. As a fun way to celebrate and add some excitement to the game, we like to hold tournaments with special rules every 100 Slifer tournament brackets. These are known as “Slifer Specials.”
In November, we finally reached an impressive 500 Slifer brackets. So, we decided to make Slifer 500 a “No Trinity” tournament. Rules for some tournaments can be complex, but this one was simple: You couldn’t play Delinquent Duo, Graceful Charity, or Pot of Greed! What cards did players use to fill these missing staple slots? What decks became stronger or weaker?
With 32 competitors and an Obelisk ticket on the line for 1st place, these were the decks that reached top 8, as well as the thoughts of those who piloted them.
If you wish to join in these fun events, or wish to earn your ticket to worlds 2022. Then head over to Goat Format Europe discord to start your journey.
