The Champs was the first major series of Magic: The Gathering tournaments around the world.[1] In the U.S.A. they were called States. These were organized in the years 2004-2008, presented by Tournament Organizers in cooperation with Wizards of the Coast.[2] Tournament locations in the U.S. and Canada utilized the Standard format. Elsewhere, the Two-Headed Giant was used.[3]
