Hello everyone and welcome to a *very* special edition of The Cardboard Witch. As some of you may be aware North Toronto is home to "world famous Eh Team Podcaster" Scott MacCallum and what's more he happens to attend a number of Standard events at The Hairy T North (the story I play at). For those of you who've never heard of the Eh Team please allow me to provide the following quote from Luke Sonnier: "One of the most irreverent and funniest podcasts in Magic, The Eh Team covers weekly news with a focus on deck-building and the competitive scene." You can read more about them in Luke's article here on ManaNation; they're the 4th podcast listed and are hugely popular with the growing Twitter Magic community.
Now of course while we're always happy to have him at our tournaments it's hardly news when Scott shows up to Friday Night Magic. When he promises to bring along 2 OTHER member's of the Eh Team Podcast at the same time however? Well then you *know* we're headed for an event of epic proportions. This Friday (March 18th) at 6:30 PM the Hairy Tarantula North is proud to present a special "Eh Team" edition of Friday Night Magic with guests Jay Boosh and KYT traveling all the way from Calgary and Montreal respectively. Unfortunately Smitty won't be joining us because Oregon is too far away to travel for a tournament; it's probably safe to leave your Kuldotha Phoenix meta at home boys. As always we'll be holding a $5 Standard event with prizes (in store credit) for the top 4 but we're also looking at a potential side Draft or casual EDH event in honor of our Eh Team guests.
When: Friday March 18th, 2011 at 6:30 PM Eastern. Please arrive early to register for the Standard tournament if you are playing.
Where: The Hairy Tarantula North. 6979 Yonge Street (at Steeles) on the East side (directly across from Centerpoint Mall). Look for the giant wooden Superman cut-out right outside our door! If you still can't find the place please call 647-430-1263 and ask for Kelly.
How Much?: As always it's $5 to enter our Standard tournament and 100% of the money collected goes directly towards prize support. There may be additional expenses if you enter the side events (ie drafts).
Well folks there you have it; a special opportunity to rub shoulders and battle with the likes of Jay Boosh, KYT and Scotty Mac at the last FNM before the TGC Player 10K Open this weekend. I hope to see you all out there; I know that *I* wouldn't miss this event for the world.
PS: If anyone has spare copies of Jace, the Mind Sculptor to loan Jay for his Toronto adventure please bring them to FNM. I've got a spare but as of right now "The Boosh" is still looking for 3 to make his TGC player dream deck a reality and would greatly appreciate anyone willing to loan out 1 or more copies. Thanks in advance.
