That means a total of 27 decks have been eliminated and 50 remain. Round 3 is not yet finished, but it is getting very close.

The voteback

There will be a voteback after round 4. That voteback will happen here on mtgolibrary and the THREE (3) decks that gets the most votes return to the competition in round 5!

The Show
Here I talk to Sam about the decks that died in round 3 of the Gauntlet.

The Standard Pauper Show is also available on itunes.

What will happen now?
77 decks entered the Gauntlet. 50 decks remain. Round 3 is single elimination in the Tournament Practice Room. Expect the bloodbath to continue. My orginal estimate was about 20-30 casualties in the third round, maybe even more. We have 24 so far.
