Decklists[edit | edit source]

Carlos Romao, World Champion[edit | edit source]

"Romão's blue-black 'Psychatog' deck was the defining deck of the tournament. A control deck at heart, with lots of card drawing and countermagic, it wants to stall an opponent until it can play a devastating Upheaval and Psychatog on the same turn. While many people at this year's World Championship played this style of deck, Carlos simply played his version better than everyone else played theirs."

Sim Han How, Quarterfinalist[edit | edit source]

"Han How's blue-green-red 'Squirrel Opposition' deck can be aggressive with cards like Wild Mongrel and Flametongue Kavu, or it can play the stalling game with a Squirrel Nest - Opposition combo. Beware the Roar of the Wurm in the sideboard!"

Brian Kibler, 11th Place[edit | edit source]

"Kibler's green-white-red 'Red Zone 2K2' deck loves to put creatures into the 'Red Zone'; that is, attack with them! This aggressive deck can put over thirty creatures on the board. And with Glory in the graveyard, few defenses can prevail against their onslaught."

Raphael Levy, 16th Place[edit | edit source]

"Levy's blue-green 'Le Wonder Goose' deck features a ton of small green creatures like Nimble Mongoose and Werebear. With Careful Study and Mental Note to get to threshold, however, those small creatures quickly turn into real monsters!"
