Hey all! Sorry I haven’t been able to get this up before now, but I’ve been focusing on Standard and I think most of you have been too.
Toronto is going to be the last Expanded tournament of the year, so I and many other players haven’t been putting a ton of effort into preparing for it. Also, the format is really too diverse to come up with the “best” play. As such, I’ll be doing this article a little bit differently than my previous ones, and there will be a single recommendation section at the end to encompass both divisions. This article will be a bit shorter than previous iterations as well, since I think this Regional is comparatively less important to prepare for and won’t be incredibly well attended.
Next week, I’ll put out a Standard Junior/Senior metagame analysis article with a recap of the PRC/SUM format as a whole. I’ll update that continuously with results from the new format as we head into Seattle, Wisconsin, Mexico, and Origins, so look forward to that!
For now, let’s take the last look at Expanded for the year!

SixPrizes has been a phenomenal resource for me from the very beginning. Shortly after I started, I became a subscriber, and being able to partake in all the knowledge a lot of the best veteran players had to share helped me learn and grow as a player. I still read to this day so I can keep up with other players’ thoughts and ideas to help me stay on top of my game!
