April Monthly Event Winners (BftC & League)

 

Sealed League for April 2017 had 11 players.  There was over $250 in store credits in the prize pool.

Our Monthly Sealed League is a really fun event that any one can jump in, even after it starts.  Players build a 30-card deck using 3 boosters from any combination of Kaladesh or Aether Revolt.  Each week, players are encouraged to play as many games as they'd want where the results of the first 3 are recorded.  Each of the following weeks players can improve their deck by purchasing an additional booster.  At the end of the month, players submit their record sheets and prizes are awarded to top finishers.

1st place Geoffrey Lok with 28 points, earning 88.8 store credits.
