February 11 Weekly Recap

kingslayer invitational season 2

Every new week at Kingslayer Games means a new week of grinding points and a new week of competition. Every Monday we will review the previous week and spotlight one or more decks.

Going forward, Standings will be updated at blog.kingslayergames.com/standings-season-2 three times a week at minimum, on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

If you go undefeated at an event, let a Staff member know and they can take a picture of your decklist for the recap.

Standings have been updated at blog.kingslayergames.com/standings-season-2 or in the Invitational Standings tab above.
