Round 1: Tombkeeper Mike Papalazaros VS Einherjar Jeff Jones

March 19th, 2011

Jeff Jones is here this weekend piloting Double Aesir, the Nordic Synchro Deck that wields Thor, Lord of the Aesir and Odin, Father of the Aesir.  There’s been a lot of talk about the Nordic theme since its release in Storm of Ragnarok, but this Feature Match represents its first big Championship-level outing.  Will Jones come through, or will Round 1 see an early demise for Tanngnjostr and its beastly buddies?
