With the second week of the new Skirmish season underway, there are plenty of events to come, and some new names are rising to the top. New Zealand, Australia, Portugal and Brunei all saw their first Skirmish events of the season, while next week sees Europe burst onto the scene with both sealed deck and blitz events. We look forward to seeing if some brand new heroes can unseat the winning streak of last season's winners!
