The results from the Star City Games Weekend Tourneys are in SCG Open and SCG Classic. This is a short meta overview, and as always be careful with investing too much in early meta decks.

SCG Opens are two-day tournaments with the top finishers after nine rounds of Swiss on Saturday advancing to Day 2. After six rounds of Swiss on Sunday, there is a cut to a single-elimination Top 8.

SCG Classic is a one-day event on Sunday, with Swiss rounds based on attendance and a cut to a single-elimination Top 8. The maximum seating capacity for each Classic is 400 players.
