Good Games 2018 EOY Highlander

This weekend saw Good Games Adelaide’s largest Highlander which was held as a Christmas event with 5 rounds of Swiss and cut to Top 8. Thank you to Good Games for supporting one of the fastest growing Magic formats and putting on a generous Top 8 prize spread including a Tundra for 1st place! It was great to see many familiar faces and also a good handful of players for which this was one of their first official Highlander events! Adelaide Eternal and Good Games have been working together to grow the eternal community and we look forward to what 2019 has in store. Read More

Adelaide Highlander (March 2018)

Adelaide Eternal Highlander Challenge

30 Players

March 2018

Top 16 Decklists are presented below, and feature match video coverage is here:

I’d like to take this opportunity to also say that I’m humbled by the number of players who were not afraid to sleeve up my unique brews, including one of my budget lists (woah!). I won’t take credit for Kess Pile which has experienced analogous evolution around Australia, but three of my brews Top 8-ed in the hands of some excellent players. Results include “Hootie & the BUG Fish” (3rd place this weekend, and a 2nd place finish last month), “ANNIHILATOR SIX” (5th place here, and 1st last month, plus a smattering of Top 16’s here too), and even my BUDGET list “Gruul Moon” (7th place this weekend in a field of decks many, many times the price!). I’d just like to say a very warm ‘thank you’ to all the players who have embraced my brews and piloted them to such great finishes, namely Luke Jefferey, Douglas Coff, Ryan Parry, JtMP, Soc (apologies to anyone I missed!). Some of you I hadn’t even met before and the moment I saw you rock up and jam one of my brews (and do the decks proud to such awesome finishes) made me feel very honoured. Thank you! Read More

A new platform for 7 point

Our beloved site has received a revamp! Whilst AusEternal is an outlet for Legacy and Vintage too, the primary reason players visit the site is in the search for information on Highlander (everyone’s favourite format). Until now it has been tricky for newer players to locate Highlander deck lists, and in addition, the valuable discussions that we have on FaceBook about archetypes end up getting pushed down the front page.

The new site structure is now designed to be more user-friendly specifically for deck and metagame discussion. There is a dedicated tab above for HIGHLANDER DECKS which takes you straight to the new forum, in which we have about three-dozen threads each dedicated to a specific Archetype. The Archetypes are loosely organised into three categories: Read More
