Hey guys,

Isaac Lam here again, dropping by one final time this year with a quick word on the final iteration of my Surge Offense team, which I used to finish in the Top 16 of the recent 2018 season Singapore Open I, and win its accompanying Mid-Season Showdown.

Decoy Sandcastle – Oceania Internationals 2017 Day 2 Report

Hi, I’m Matthew Hui, editor of The Mirage Island, contributing my own content for a change.
