Update: they banned this degenerate format the day after the event. Great timing, feels really good – thanks, Wizards!
Took a shot at the two-day Arena Open this weekend. On Day 1 you had to hit 7 wins in Best-of-1, and you could enter as many times as you wanted. I was only going to run it once because it costs roughly $20 to enter and I’m not some deluded grinder. Frankly, I just wanted the digital Godzilla lands that you got with your entry.
I managed to finish at 7-2 despite some pretty bad mistakes so I was pretty stoked about that. Day 2 was Best-of-3 and if you hit 6 or 7 wins you get actual cash. Spoiler alert, I almost instantly died on Day 2 but at least scraped out one win, netting me my entry fee back. Got the Godzilla lands, anyway!
