The first Legacy-series event of the year gathered 60 players to compete for the trophy, store credits, and the precious Legacy-series points. The player who collects the most points from four Legacy-series events gets an invite to Poro Tour Invitational tournament, which is held at the end of 2020. If you missed the results of the first Poro Tour Modern #1 main tournament, you can find the top 8 player profiles and decklists here

The finals of Legacy-series #1 was played between Maxim Tikhomirov (Aluren) and Roman Nicolayev (Grixis Delver/Tempo). Both of these players arrived to compete from St. Petersburg, Russia and have had former success in Poro Legacy events. Maxim took the tournament down with his wicked Aluren deck, featuring Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath from Theros Beyond Death. Uro was featured in multiple different archetypes and the main consensus between the Legacy players was that it is a real hard hitter even in eternal formats.

Congratulations to Maxim for winning the first-ever Poromagia's Legacy-series event! The updated Poro Point standings after the first PoroFest weekend can be found from the Poro Point Sheet.

Joonas Himmanen

Age:30

Profession / what are you doing? Student / Research Assistant

Home town:Jyväskylä

What is the best memory/highlight of your Magic gaming career?Winning the Sensei's Divining Shop Invitational.

Which deck did you play, why? Gurmagless Grixis Delver. The deck was great at the invitational and it seemed like a better fit for the current metagame than UR Delver.

Which card(s) performed best in the deck today? Brazen Borrower. The card does everything from offense to bouncing a 20/20 Marit Lage token. I run 3 in the 75 but I am getting a feeling that a 4th one could be in place.

Who wins today (if not you)?I don't know the full top 8 just yet, but either Roope Metsä or Mikael Heikinheimo.

Roman Nikolaev

Age: 37

Profession / what are you doing? Lawyer

Home town: Saint Petersburg, Russia

What is the best memory/highlight of your Magic gaming career? Winning Poro GP Legacy in 2019. I made a couple of top 8's before I finally got there!

Which deck did you play, why? Grixis Tempo, because it has game vs every other deck in the Legacy format.

Which card(s) performed best in the deck today? Counterbalance, because it's an interesting catch-all type of card. It can be used in tempo match-ups and vs combo and control.

Who wins today (if not you)? I give my vote for Doomsday combo (Simo Lagerspetz) because that archetype is rare to see and funny.

Profession / what are you doing? Support Engineer, Tier 2

Home town: Saint Petersburg, Russia

What is the best memory/highlight of your Magic gaming career? Making day 2 in GP Bologna in 2019 with Eldrazi Post.

Who wins today (if not you)?Roman Nikolaev, because he is the most experienced Legacy player in the whole Russia.
