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.
Standings are updated at blog.kingslayergames.com/standings-season-2 every 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.
