Well, it’s over. It’s finally over. That’s right, the epic summer 2014 Goat Format War League officially ended on January 1, 2015 when Mostly Harmless took down The Academy in the final crossfire war of the tournament. As you probably know, the League pitted ten teams against each other and forced the two teams with the best records to face off in a final showdown. More details about the tournament – including the structure, participants, and rules – can be found here. In the end, I went 21-1 and there’s a lot to say about it, so here’s my report.
Disclaimer: I’m sharing this under the assumption you know all about Goat Format, but if you’re new to the game (and by “new” I mean that you only started playing within the last decade) then you may not know that Goat Format was the April 2005 TCG Format, and it was called as such because Goat Control decks dominated every major event throughout the format. For a more detailed look into the format, you can read Michael Bonacini’s “Intro to Goat Control,” Patrick Hoban’s “A History of Competitive Play: April-Oct 2005,” and these Goat Format interviews.
