I have to be honest... and "event" where you can't even watch what is happening, have to wait an entire day to see the results of a single round, and where basically the easiest way to know how will win is by seeing who has spent $10k on the game or more to get their full deck of self rezzing (2)Recyles, Stoneskin/Sacrifice, Double Queen Temptress with Retreat, etc. etc. etc. decks and who hasn't.

Really... was it supposed to be fun or interesting to bet on a bunch of nearly identical decks amongst the top 64 players?
