Part 1 Meta
Sadly i have to agree that your vision of the Part1 Meta is NOT accurate.
I travelled to all the big events in the US, while nobody played in europe. So my vision isnt blurred by any local metagame. Here is what i remember: First there were Mono Warlord, Mono Rogue and Warlord/Rogue lists dominating (at Gen Con So Cal Mono Warlord won in the capable hands of Alex Shvartzman), later on (Comic Con New York) there was Rogue/Gearsmith abusing Luteoderm Goliath recursion. The best deck at NYCC actually was Mono Gearsmith beatdown including the Nodes Engine (I used that deck to reach the final. The final couldnt be played but was split with Jason Tian, because the hall was closing down.).
the man. the myth. the legend.
