2017 Worlds Away Magic Championship Update

Posted on: September 21st, 2017 by Brad No Comments

Here are the standings in the year-long journey that will crown the 2017 Worlds Away Magic Champion. Players earn points (three or one) from each match at all sanctioned tournaments from December, 2016 until the end of November, 2017. The top 32 players qualify for a free standard tournament on Saturday, Dec. 2. After five rounds the top eight will enter into a free draft from which your champion will emerge. Everyone in the top eight will receive a special item, and the winner a killer stained-glass trophy, all designed by my friend Cheryl Garrett-Jenkins. Feature match and door prizes will also be awarded during the five-rounder.

Without further ado, here are your top 32, and a few within reach, as of Thursday, Sept. 21:

1. Jimmy Bradley — 277 points; 2. Clinton Prince — 272; 3. Rick Miles — 260; 4. Doug Flannigan — 257; 5. Adam Hobbs — 234; 6. Pro Tour Alvaro Marques –231; 7. Quinn Gregg — 230; 8. Shawn Hooper — 211; 9. Daniel Mackie — 196; 10. Thomas Wall — 181; 11. Anthony Bechard — 179; 12. Martin Lee — 127; 13. Clifford Hubley — 120; 14. Mark Cavaco — 99; 15. Phil Bickle — 91; 15. Sean Blute — 91; 17. Matt Powers — 89; 18. Juha Erme — 87; 18. Joe Alison — 87; 20. David Knauer — 85; 21. Carlos Salgado — 84; 22. Matt Pinsky — 79; 23. Mason Forster — 70; 24.
