Hey everyone! At the time of my writing this, the Santa Clara Regional Championships has been wrapped up for a few hours. I want to dedicate this article to analyzing the results of the first major SUM–UNB Standard format tournament in North America. As soon as the full set list was announced, it was clear that Unbroken Bonds was going to have an impact on Standard. This weekend, we finally got to find out just how big of an impact that would be!
My plan is to focus on two of the major happenings from this weekend, while making sure to cover everything I feel is important in some manner. The first event where a new set is legal is always chock-full of things to talk about, so I apologize if I don’t get to them all.
