This weekend I finally got to go to the MMS in Madison and as player it was pretty cool. This tournament had a low turnout because of the SCG in Louisville, which rewarded all of us who showed up. We had 87 players playing for 3,000 dollars cash to the top 8. So if you make the top 8 you get 250 dollars, a badge for Gencon and an invite to the MMS championship at Gencon. If you make the top 2 you get an invite to the TCGplayer 75k in Chicago. To me that’s an awesome prize package for a tournament that is not as big as the SCG series.
Unfortunately I didn’t do well, I played RuG Twin in the MMS and went 1-2 after making some sideboarding mistakes due to not testing. I thought the deck was just underpowered but then Jesse Westphal took second place in the PTQ on Sunday proving me wrong.
For the PTQ on Sun went back to the darkside and played Caw-Blade. I unfortunately played like crap, making stupid mistakes against RuG twin round 1 to lose easily. Then winning a close match to a W/B deck and finally losing to U/G when I got a little tight on land game 3. Plus Consecrated Sphinx is a house if you can’t stop it, especially when he had Jace Beleren and could draw 3 cards on his turn and then 2 on mine and preordaining for an answer is not fun.
On the ride back we had a lot of fun with having Justin Bieber (Brandon Nelson) in the car. Well passing through the Winona area we started listening to Z93 which I remember from my college days in Winona. They announced the number to call and make a request, so Sean called and excitedly requested Baby by Justin Bieber and asked to get it on shortly before we lost the signal. About 3 minutes later the announcer comes on and says “Well I got this request from a bunch of guys in a car for Baby and despite my better judgement, here it is”. So we all start signing along as best we can since we don’t really know the lyrics. But as we near the end of the song a police car flashes its lights and pulls us over. Fortunately he just gives us a warning for going 7 mph over, I’m sure if he knew we had requested Baby he would have given us a sobriety test also.
Well I get another shot at the MMS in MN on June 4th, with a PTQ on June 5th.
So I hope to see you there.

Now you can search for TCGplayer championship series events and SCG Invitational Qualifiers. The only thing to note is that they aren’t always at the store. I’m trying to keep it where the location lists the event location but I don’t have control over the SCG and TCGplayer calendars that I get the information from.

Okay so maybe zombies didn’t really attack our server but our sys admin looked like one after recovering the system from a hardware failure. Everything appears to be in shape. If you created an account on Sunday sadly it’s gone since the backups only go so far and we aren’t Google who can have data centers all over the world to backup the data.
One free entry per MMS Regional Qualifier is to be given away.
Winner will be chosen from registered members of mtgfinder.com who are within 100 miles of the qualifier that the entry is being given out for. To see if you are eligible simply do a search for MMS Regional Qualifier events 100 miles from the postal code that you used to register. If you see an MMS Regional Qualifer you have a chance to win. If you see multiple Qualifiers you have multiple chances to win as one entry is given out for each qualifier.
Winner will be chosen one week before the MMS Qualifier. The winners name will be announced in the MTG Finder blog and the Midwest Masters Series blog. Winner will be contacted by email. If the winner wants to they can decline the free entry and a new winner will be chosen at random. If the free entry is not used by a winner to enter into the MMS Qualifier, a new winner will be chosen from participants in the MMS qualifier. That winner will get their entry fee back. The winner’s name will be announced before round 1 begins. If you have multiple accounts with MTGFinder you will be ineligible to win, also you must have a valid email address and user name to identify yourself.
The free entry is only valid for the Qualifier that the drawing was for. You cannot transfer your free entry into another MMS Qualifier or to another person of your choosing.
We improved the postal code lookup on the tournament locator. So when you get to the calendar page it will show the city and country that the postal code was estimated as. The city maybe a little different than what you expect since postal codes overlap on cities, but it will still work and the country should be right. This will help you know that postal code was processed correctly. Since before you could just get a blank calendar and the problem was that without the country prefix the postal code worked for a different country then what you expected.
