For the last 4 months, competitive players have been duking it out at the XCS! 3 rounds of qualifiers, each qualifier lasting for a month, ending with a stream showing the top 16 battling it out in a single elimination tournament. And even these three qualifiers paid well for those that made it to the top 26, $12.000 was paid out to the participants!
$2000 USDC + $2000 Worth of Prana to the top 26!
- #1 : $500 USDC + $500 Prana
- #2 : $200 USDC + $200 Prana
- #3 : $150 USDC + $150 Prana
- #4 – #8 : $100 USDC + $100 Prana
- #9 – #16 : $50 USDC + $50 Prana
- #17 – #26 : $25 USDC + $25 Prana
Each participant racked up points based on the placement in the qualifiers, and the more you played the more points you could earn. The final tally after the 3rd and final qualifier gave us the top 16:

The final was decided to be done in a slightly different way, Open decklists! So I set out to make a tool that would produce some nice decklists, so we could show it on stream, (the result of that is coming up soon). Another difference from the qualifiers was that this final would be double Elimination (which means you can lose once and still have a chance to make it to the top but battle it out in the losers bracket).
Let’s have a look at what people were fighting for, double the prize pool of the qualifiers!!
