Toronto held its 4th Ashes tournament on July 9th, 2016. The event was hosted by Wood For Sheep and took place at Shopsy’s Deli in Markham, ON. There were a total of seven players, including the defending champion Tony Stellato. Tony used the same deck as the previous tournament except for one change, which was replacing a Crimson Bomber with Ice Trap.
The seven players used the following Phoenixborn: 2 Jessa, 2 Rin, 1 Maeoni, 1 Brennan and 1 Lulu.
Here are the top 3 players:
Tony Stellato – Brennan – 4-0
“Dirty” Dan – Lulu – 3-1 (one bye)
Bill Parousis – Jessa – 2-1-1 (one draw)
Tony had another stellar performance at this tournament and went undefeated again with his Brennan deck. Since he had already received a play mat from the previous tournament he was eager to get his hands on the Alt Brennan card. All he needs now is Alt Rin and he’ll have the full collection.

In second place, taking the play mat, was “Dirty” Dan with a record of two wins, one loss and one bye. Don’t ask me why they call him “Dirty” Dan…I sort of don’t want to know. “Dirty” Dan had an all ceremonial deck, which was fun to play against.
Yours truly, landed in third place with two wins, one loss and one draw. The game that ended in a draw was probably one of the most gruelling games of Ashes I have ever played. And of course, I lost a game to Tony, but it was close.
