April: Pretty much everybody made weenie decks. People had no idea what the metagame would be so in general they tried to be safe.

May: A lot of weenie decks again, with a few control, burn, and a couple odd decks. Control won, and weenies were next, followed by everything else. Points for an AI win were lowered for this month. I also did up a bunch of funny statistics for this month.

June: Many people felt the random gauntletsof april/may were unfair (as some decks had way more plays by the AI, due to chance) and so we switched to an elimination style tournament. We ended up with three progenitus decks, two goblin decks, and a lot of unusual decks, as people adjusted to the metagame and tried to find decks the AI could use. One of the Progenitus decks ended up winning. Wishes were banned for this and every other tournament afterward in order to prevent 'cheating' by wishing for banned cards. We also made the first round contain several groups, and then progressed to elimination after that.

July: For variety, we moved to Legacy. (type 1.5) We saw a lot more control and combo decks this time around, but the winner was a stompy elves deck. This tournament also saw the introduction of voting for our favourite deck to use, whether or not it did well. Shantak was the only person to gather more than one vote, making his the clear favourite.

August: This was like July, only we could only use a single set for our deck. Jatill gave a bonus award of 1 card to anyone who could get to round 2 with certain sets, and two people managed it. Most people used weenies and midsize creatures, but the winner was a white/blue control deck again. The prize format had more of a 'winner takes all' feel, as the champion got ten cards of their choice coded.

September: Another legacy with a twist, only this time you had to design a mostly creature/multicolour deck. Once again, Natural Order took the prize home, and salbei became the first person to win two tournaments.

October: I didn't play in this one, so I'm not sure how it went, but it was EDH and looked like fun; I just missed it because I was out of town at the beginning of the month.
