Welcome to Format Library Championship IV! This weekend's tournament of 24 players will run a little differently on Day 1 than previous FLCs. Everyone has been seeded and sorted into one of four pools, with six players each. These pools will be played out throughout Day 1 in round robin format, and the top 2 players from each pool will then advance into Day 2.
Pool A's top two seeds are FLCIII Champion Shane and CTS Berlin Champion Ludrah, otherwise known in online circles as Chevalier de Fromage (CDF). CDF is playing the latest incarnation of his tried-and-true Empty Jar deck, while Shane is playing some strange contraption involving Mataza the Zapper that I'll need a full Deck Profile to explain properly. Pool B has SJC Durham Champion Tango vying with FLC2 Champion Dinosaur_Ryuzaki for the top spot, each of them on a unique interpretation of Chaos this weekend. In Pool C, Reddit's 2015 Goat Champion InsiDS will face off against former Seraphim Brandis72 and many other up-and-comers in a field of many different Goat Control decks. Pool D, with its coveted 1:00PM time slot, is by far the deadliest pool of them all, with GoatRank All-time Title Holder Jazz facing a gauntlet of hungry new-bloods such as Iwasbanned0ndn and TheMTtakeover as well as hardened FLC veterans such as WorldGoneMaad and SparkyFlary. Stay tuned for video and written coverage of the meatiest action of Day 1!
