Recap: Battle Hardened: Taichung

17th May 2024 Kasharn Rao

Another Battle Hardened under the belt, and another $2,000 USD paid out, alongside Gold Foils, PTIs, and other awesome prizes!

As we say goodbye to Heavy Hitters season, one question is burning in everyone's minds - are the days of Brutes and Warriors numbered? What is Part the Mistveil bringing to the table.

The World Premiere is bringing us a live snapshot of these new heroes in action, but for now, let's look at the surprising top cut that emerged in Taiwan last weekend...

Battle Hardened

More than 60 players rocked up to duke it out last weekend in Classic Constructed. The Brute rampage continues as claws and clubs swing bigger than ever, no doubt with the added strength of the new Armory Deck! While Kayo ended up coming out on top, it was the double showing of Riptides in top cut that shook the room. Murky Waters indeed!

Congratulations to Hung Aaa_Man, and to the rest of our Top 8 competitors!
