The Senior Scoop - The differences between divisions and analyzing the senior meta

05/03/2019 by Isaiah Bradner

Hello, 60cards readers! It’s me, Isaiah, back again with an article to help give some insight on how I prepare for tournaments as a senior, what meta I expect for Berlin, and my current top pick. While this is obviously geared towards those in my division, I feel that the contrasts between the divisions make for an interesting read.

Comparing Masters to Seniors:

While it isn't always obvious to those in either division, my time playing in seniors combined with my relationships with masters has allowed me to experience both sides. Here are some of my observations on the most important differences.

The numbers:

The numbers - The largest difference between seniors and masters is the raw number of players that show up to an event. While at first glance this might not seem like a huge deal, it completely changes your perception as a player going into an event. In masters events which generally have over 700 people one random rogue deck that happens to show up can often be avoided until later in the day. However, in a field as small as seniors and juniors you can have up to ten times as likely a chance to hit the certain rogue deck; that chance is further raised if you both win your early rounds.
