Decklists[edit | edit source]

Tom van de Logt, World Champion[edit | edit source]

"Tom van de Logt's aggressive, black-red 'Machine Head' deck used the good ol' 'blow stuff up' method. While creatures like Plague Spitter wiped out his opponents' smaller creatures, more ferocious beasts like Flametongue Kavu aggressively cleared the board of larger threats."

Machine Head

Alex Borteh, Finalist[edit | edit source]

"Alex Borteh's monoblue combo deck contained twelve 1-toughness creatures. These helped hold the board until his Static Orb-Opposition combo could lock down his opponents' permanents--clearing the way for a horde of Merfolk to pour through for the victory."

Merfolk Opposition

Antoine Ruel, Semifinalist[edit | edit source]

"Antoine Ruel's blue-black-red control deck survived the pressure in the early game with its almost overwhelming card-drawing capability. And in the end, Nether Spirit kept rising from his graveyard to take down his opponents."

Blue-Black-Red Nether-Go

Jan Tomcani, Quarterfinalist[edit | edit source]

"Jan Tomcani's green-red-black 'Fires"' deck used early mana-producing creatures to play a quick Fires of Yavimaya. Shortly thereafter, Tomcani's hasted big creatures pounded opponents' life totals to dust."
