Celebration Tourney Top 8 Breakdown

Kfelt took home the crown with triple MONKEYS, and Metal took Gwen Udyr to SECOND? See all the top 8 lineups!

Saturday saw a meeting of minds and monkeys with our 2 Mill Celebration Tourney pitting some of the best in the community against eachother and members of both the Mastering Runeterra pro team and The Squad for a cash prize, glory, and free T-shirts!

On top of the actual cash for the top 8, we had bounties on members of our team including WhatamI, Jasensational, Shadawx, MonteXristo, Puyshpii, and Samanthony all to win some of our hot new merch. (Available Soon)

But that's enough ads, let's look at the results.

Open Rounds

The spread of decks saw a few expected outliers, in Kai'sa Demacia, Thralls, bard Illaoi, and the new Ravenbloom deck; Twisted Fate Katarina. It looks like the big expected meta decks are still coming out widely as some folks may expect. With that short analysis, onto the top 8!

An overall rather typical modern list for Kai'sa Demacia. It utilizes some of the low-cost units that give keywords to try and force a level for your Kai'sa on turn 5 to potentially win in a single turn by giving her scout and possibly spellshield and overwhelm. Notably the deck runs two Xer'sai hatchling, Voidlings,. Belvethi Elder and Petricite Broadwing to pile on the soup. A notable addition as of late is Rangers' Resolve and Durant Protege to bolster their matchup vs Azir Irelia and lower cost ping-decks.

This thralls list is looking to better it's mirror game with the inclusion of one Harsh Winds and quash Kai'sa with two Quicksand. It doesn't fear aggro too much based on it's lower number of both Three Sisters and Avalanche, aiming to target midrange strats.

A bit of a spicy take on the normally predictable list, this runs two Quicksands to help vs Kai'sa, is up to two Rite of Negations, and has an Aftershock for landmark decks like Thralls to try and slow them down or stop a pivotal Ravine.

The slightly more standard version, packing a Radiant Guardian as a 7th Kai'sa (aka, game winning threat on turn 5) despite that being a slightly more predictable line. This does open Roji up to using that looming threat to stop aggressive lines, although he doesn't have Abomination to fall back on.

Bard Illaoi has been a meta mainstay for a bit now, with a lot of the key cards being three-ofs such as Byrd, Watchful Idol, Esmus, Croaker, Sea's Voice, Tentacle Smash, Eye of Nagakabouros, and usually Riptide Sermon. For this list (pun intended) some of the tech cards include two Ye been warned, one The List, and two Blood in the Water. The List is very potent with the Yes and Hired gun alongside Illaoi for wins out of nowhere.

Katarina Twisted Fate has been the premier Ravenbloom deck since Illaoi reared her tentacle into the meta alongside the challengers of Kai'sa decks, Katarina adds more than Annie does since she dies too easily while being able to threaten a win by herself and continually generate pressure and value.

Luna's take is the same as Roji's, more on the midrange side and teched to beat bad matchups. It's also avoiding Void Abominations to be sleeker.

A newer Bard list aiming to make use of the interactions between Shen, Kinkou Student, Greenglade Caretaker, and Ki Guardian to turbo flip Shen, buff the team very quickly, and make your board nearly impossible to kill. It is a bit soft to Kai'sa but Illaoi and the like are very soft to it, which is less of an issue if you've got a ban you can use...

Ian's take on Bard Illaoi opts in for Make it Rains to spray down aggro decks, and two Zap Sprayfins which work very effectively with chimes, and the ability to find a tentacle, Make it rain, or Ye Been Warned, so 66% chance to find removal of some sort.

This list aims a bit more towards late game than the Turn 5 OTK of a Scout Kai'sa (although it still does have that capability). It opts in for two Void Abominations as finishers, no Radiant Guardians to act as stonewalls, but two Merciless Hunters to act as removal against the opponent's key threats.

I'm not sure here, guess the third Maokai isn't as relevant or important for deep as it used to be, opting for a Twisted Fate for flexibility and another finisher instead.

This is interesting to see, if any Sion Draven list were to crop up I'd have expected a burn one but here we have unadulterated midrange value town from back when Twinblade had Challenger folks! This sports Aloofs, a Physician, a VI of all things with no Survival Skills, two Flocks, a Culling Strike, one Scorched Earth and a Captain Farron to round it out. It aims to have answers for everything niche and value for the more broad audience.

This is a pile of spicy midrange innovation. It builds up Hallowed through Gwen's crew and Gwen herself, has Stances to give Overwhelm to whatever is still alive and utilize the Hallowed, and also has a bunch of cards that generate stances as proxy card draw. Having played a few games of it on ladder, it feels surprisingly potent, especially with the ability to be the control player and hold Vengeance for key threats, holding onto one big threat like an Alseer or Udyr on board while doing so.

The Hotness, Powder Pandemonium.deck. its based around aggressively plundering with Warning Shots, Teemo, Jagged Butcher, Monkey Business and Swindle, all to build up an unreasonably large Pandemonium, especially when paired with a Jagged Taskmaster trigger. A full board of monkeys guarantees 6 damage not counting actual att acks, that with the heavy ping and chip-damage based gameplan makes for a potent aggro deck the likes of which we haven't seen in some time. One quirk of the deck's current interactions is that Powder Pandemonium (at time of writing) gives one more monkey than it says, if you have damaged the enemy on the cast turn, effectively acting as if it has plunder itself.

This is mostly the same shell, except with Gwen, Doombeast, Boisterous Host over a couple card choices. They wanted more Monke.
