MKM Series Toulouse

Event Coverage of the MKM Series Toulouse

Today marks the epic conclusion of the second Magic Card Market Tournament Series that is being held this weekend in Toulouse, France. Despite a weather situation that can only be described as “inviting” and a big swimming pool right in front of the venue (we'll add a picture on facebook so you get an idea of what that looks like), more than 100 players showed up for the Legacy event.

For one last time this weekend, we see players from various countries duking it out with a big variety of different decks. Throughout the day, we will update our coverage page with a deck breakdown and also talk to some of the most promising Magicians that have an excellent shot at winning the trophy together with a whopping 1.200 EUR voucher!

While there can only be one at the very top of the standings at the end of the day, it still pays out to continue playing in the tournament as we will be giving out an additional 2.200 EUR in prizes for the players that finish on 2nd – 16th place.

So far, the MKM Series Toulouse has been an overwhelming success and today will be no different. Head back regularly and make sure to also check out the livestream on twitch where you can look over the shoulders of some of the most successful players.

The French All Star National

While the MKM Series provides plenty of opportunity to get your game on and play a whole lot of Magic (4 tournaments in 4 different formats spread out over 3 days!), the second main event of the weekend was the All Star National. I sat down with Jean-Julien Zeil who...

Interview with Antonio Musarra

Brace yourselves! This article isn't directly Legacy related. Instead, it is a very long interview that I have conducted with the Tournament Organizer of the MKM Series Antonio to answer all of your questions that have been asked on facebook. Please keep in mind that...

Metagame Breakdown

Take a look at the most popular decks in our Legacy main event of the MKM Series Toulouse.

While some decks certainly proved more popular than others, we still had a very diverse metagame with 50 decks making up the “Other” category. That means all of the various archetypes that are represented in this category haven't been played by more than four players.

Event Photos

More than 100 players were ready to sleeve up their cards one last time for the Legacy event on Sunday!
Team Chopper also sent a representative to Toulouse!
Ready to make a move!
These two were in between games.
We saw a number of tutor effects being played in the event, which led to a lot of shuffling.
Thinking long before comitting the next move.
He seemingly forgot his glasses and something to cover the shirt.
Again, we saw a number of players that travelled wide and far to enroll in today's event.
The problem, clearly, was choice.
This gentleman went with a pretty simple design choice for his playmat.
Waiting excitedly for the next play.
The gentlemanly thing was to let the woman go first, but they still rolled a die.
We haven't seen that in a while - a table entirely without playmats.
Thumbs up for the event!
He wanted to know what all the fuzz was about.
She wasn't holding back any punches!
Card advantage for the player in the bottom corner!
These two were having big smiles on their faces.
The gesture seems to indicate a

We're slowly moving towards the last tables.
Since those images were taken early in the tournament, however, that didn't reflect the standings of the participants. ;)

The way they arranged their cards made it seem like they attacked basic lands.
You read it here first!
Plenty of cards on the table!
Let's see if our fan of windsurfing could also play well.
This is the entire field, photographed from the back.
In the background, you can see the players of the All Star National getting ready.
Pairings for round 2 were up!
This happened right in front of the venue. And we still welcomed more than 100 players for our last big tournament!
This is round 5 of the Legacy event!
We're taking a look at the top tables as these players might end up in the Top 8 later!
Nicolas, the winner of yesterday's Modern tournament, also tried his luck in Legacy.
There was a lot of searching going on; on every other table, someone was accessing their deck and looking for a land.
These players didn't sport a perfect record, but if they now hit a win streak, they could still sneak into the Top 8.
A hand full of cards vs. an impressive board. Very often, the latter is the better position to be in.
Tarmogoyf can be a popular choice in Legacy, too!
Let's see if he could turn things around against the Deathrite Shaman.They

Once again, tutoring action.
The first change in life totals on this table!
If there's nothing going on at your own table, you can either focus on the matches around you or the coverage camera. Well done!
I wondered who of the two had more Secrets...

The game was a little one-sided so far.
He wasn't just dressed in all black, he also stuck to his color in terms of card choices.
A French Abrupt Decay caused this guy's opponent some serious headache.
It appeared like they had to explain some cards before continuing play.
What an explosive start!

For these guys, it was mostly all about fun, which certainly isn't a bad thing.
Black and green seemed to be represented a bit more often than the other colors.

So far no missed land drops.
