COMMENTS
Currently holding every subformat title except for Modern (Standard, Pioneer, Legacy, Underdog). 3 of last 4 events won, 12-1 in matches. The loss was in Modern to a Turn 2 Firespout every game, which somehow another Elf deck managed to beat.

Other points: the rest of the top 5 are retired accounts, which haven't played for years, which accrued high ratings because they played horribly imbalanced formats like a 1v1 Commander, which had no established or credible banlists. If you can go 70-5 in a format in Magic, then it isn't a real format. Those ELO scores will never be reached again as long as everyone else is playing actual formats like Standard, Modern, etc.

Also I never spent a penny on MTGO. I am a budget player. I did all this with a very limited collection funded only by prizes. How many events do I need to win to afford 4 Forces of Will for example? My decks are quite limited in scope. Imagine what I could do with a bigger collection then!

Unfortunately at this ELO level, a win is +3, and a loss is -20 or so. Oh well. I am one mana screw away from an ELO hemorrhage into oblivion. It was fun while it lasted!
