DOH!
Here's the real scoop:

Tourney Report for FRIDAYS AT FIRST!
on May 17th, 1996

We had a smaller turnout than desired, but it was a good tourney
nonetheless. Afshin Coleman continued to consistently place well in the
events, winning one for the first time after several good shows, and
catapulting himself to 1st place in overall standings after Four
tournaments. Chris Pantages returned to Who's on First? with The Deck
after trying out an experimental Mana Crypt deck in previous weeks.

Surprise card of the tournament (perhaps not so surprising)?

Yes indeed. Everyone's favorite grinning, munching, out-of-print, Type I
common monster was the star of the event. Of the Top 6 finishers, THREE
players used 4 Atogs in their standard decks. Among those were, Terry Don,
John Shen, and the winner, Afshin Coleman. Afshin's deck was a variant of
the 'Chicago' Atog deck. Chris Pantages' only loss was to Afshin. During
one of their games, Chris was once forced to counter a PSYCHIC PURGE(!) or
he would have died. You don't see that often. ;) Terry, who doesn't have
Net access, played one similar to the 'Atog Monstrosity' from L.A. And
John Shen played a strong Atog/Power Surge deck. Rounding out the top six
were David Izard, who snuck through the Swiss rankings after dropping an
early match, and Dan Oden who played a standard Kird/Serendib/GG/Mutation
deck, which left Afshin begging for REBs in his sideboard when they
played. Afshin's deck is listed below for reference. Note the missing
spoilers. :)

Congrats to all competitors. Soon, 80% of all Type I decks will be Atog
decks. MARK MY WORDS! ;)
