Standard PPTQ Kyoto – Decklists

This was a great opportunity for all Magic fans: to qualify for RPTQ and eventually go to Kyoto to the Pro Tour… So 50 players showed up at our doorstep on a sunny (and later rainy) Sunday morning. It was decided that the playoff is to start after 6 Swiss rounds. The field of decks was actually very diverse and interesting to watch, and at the end 8 players were standing on top of everyone else. Unfortunately Xandor Tollenaar had worse tiebreakers and was left out due to unclean cut – but we hopefully next time it won’t happen to him again!

In the semifinals Bart dispatched Frank in the mirror match of Mardu Vehicles, and Pieter showed the strength of Saheeli combo to Ivan. In the end Bart proved to be the strongest player in the room and got the prizes, the title and the qualification – congratulations to him! Thanks to everyone for joining, and we will see you next time 🙂

Modern PPTQ 11/09/16 – decklists

66 players showed up with the cool summer breeze blowing through their hair, and they were all ready for Modern PPTQ. After the the first couple of rounds the temperature started rising, but players kept their heads cool. Then round 7 finally ended and the TOP-8 was announced. Kasper Zijl and Daem Vorster managed to sneak into TOP-8 on tiebreakers, and they ended up playing in the finals against each other. In the end Kasper with his Death Shadow emerged victorious. Congratulations and see you next time 🙂
