Decklists[edit | edit source]

Kai Budde, World Champion[edit | edit source]

"World Champion Kai Budde's red-artifact deck employed more than 30 artifacts to generate huge amounts of mana. Big creatures like Masticore or Covetous Dragon became a threat to any opponent, and a well-timed Wildfire added the finishing touch."

Red-Artifact Wildfire

Mark Le Pine, Finalist[edit | edit source]

"Mark Le Pine's aggressive 'Sped Red' deck applied the pressure early with 11 fast creatures before shifting into land-destruction mode. A late-game Cursed Scroll and Hammer of Bogardan would finish off his mana-crippled opponents."

Sped Red

Matt Linde, Semifinalist[edit | edit source]

"Matt Linde's speedy mono-green deck contained 26 low-cost creatures. Supplementing this nasty creature assault were four Rancors and four Giant Growths. If his opponent wasn't smothered by turn five, Linde's Cursed Scrolls would pick up the slack."

Mono-Green Stompy

Jakub Šlemr, Quarterfinalist[edit | edit source]

"Jakub Šlemr's mono-black deck controlled the board with Cursed Scrolls, Powder Kegs, and Phrexian Plaguelords. His 'Black Control' creation also pounded his opponents early with discard effects found in Ravenous Rats, Duress, and Stupor."
