Tournament Report: 2016 40k Conquest Regionals @ Great Escape Games

This Saturday, I and several friends from the Berkeley Conquest group headed up to Sacramento to play in Regionals. I took a somewhat experimental Eldorath deck – while I was not entirely sure that this deck was “ready for prime time”, playing it seemed interesting to me and it had done well in testing.
