The magical masses descended on Grand Prix Orlando this weekend to dive into the new format featuring the hot-off-the-presses Khans of Tarkir. The magic of a Grand Prix on day one is palpable. It feels like anyone’s game as new players, veterans, and pros sit down across from each other to battle it out. This Grand Prix had a couple make Top 8 together, women showing up to sling in force, and lots and lots of Magic. In case you weren’t able to follow along this weekend with the stupendous and entertaining coverage team, I got you covered. Grand Prix Orlando was a great appetizer as we head into upcoming Pro Tour shenanigans.

If you ever walk by a match and see Debilitating Injury on someone's Dragon's Eye Savants, that person is probably in a good mood #GPOrlando— Conley Woods (@Conley81) October 4, 2014

Based on names I could verify belonged to women, there were 93 women out of 2,275 players at #GPORLANDO. That's 4% representation. Woo!— Erin Campbell (@OriginalOestrus) October 5, 2014
