Eighty-three players participated in yesterday's Goat Format Championship 13 tournament, a great turnout! There were a plethora of deck types that found their way into the event, with players choosing strategies based on perceived strength, fun factor, or even nostalgia! NovaEthos, AKA "igloodude", had individuality in mind when he submitted his Fiend Aggro list and went into round one with victory on his mind!
Congratulations to Delinkquent on defeating 117 other players and becoming a GFC Champion. You can checkout the bracket on Challonge, and a replay of the stream from of the event at youtube.com/goatformat.
Let's examine how the Goat Format metagame is developing coming out the biggest GFC thus far!
Today's 3v3 event decimated expectations in both turnout and fun! We've had a large number of players and teams express just how much enjoyment they got out of the day. While these tournaments are certainly made better when you're having fun, in the end, most players also come to win. So, what sorts of teams were able to top 153 players and become the best 3v3 duelists of the day? Read on to find out!
51 teams. 153 duelists. The dust has settled, and today we've crowned three new Goat Format Champions. Check out their decklists here!
Soul Control has been a staple of the format since Evan Vargas piloted the deck to a top four finish at SJC Los Angeles in 2005. While the core strategy and principles have stayed the same, the deck has certainly evolved over the years. Smoker and his team may have just added to these changes, potentially pushing the deck to new heights with their innovative and exciting list!
Beastdown decks have long been a staple in Goat Format. The piercing power of Enraged Battle Ox and the oppressive summoning restrictions set by King Tiger Wanghu have ruined the day of many Scapegoat players. These powerful and agressive cards seem to have found their home in the hands of Jeix today, who has (with the rest of his team) currently fought to a 3-1 record in our 3v3 event!
The Goat Format Championship 3v3 event is a go, and boy has it been exciting! Once again, we've got an incredibly successful event with 51 participating teams! That's 153 players, a new record! Kyosuke Kiryu is one such player, and today he's brought his trusty Gravekeeper's deck with the goal of reaching the top! Gravekeeper's is one of the most popular tribal decks in the format. Gravekeeper's Spy is a powerful wall against aggro decks, and Necrovalley makes summoning chaos monsters a nightmare. How will they perform in today's meta, though?
