HexPrimal Immortal Championship Series Recap (6/17)

Jul 5, 2017

Hey there folks, this is the HexPrimal Casting Team with a quick recap of our second Immortal Championship Series tournament!

Congratulations to our newest winner, gawelen, on taking this one down. It was our first tournament cast using the replay feature, and we do hope you enjoyed the extended and continued coverage it allowed us to provide you. We saw a lot more diversity in the Immortal format this time around, and hopefully we’ll only see more of that as more sets are added and new synergies are found with old champions. Now, let’s get right into it with the Top 8 list and the decks these players piloted to victory.
