After nine rounds plus quarter- and semifinals, only two players were left to duke it out for the title and trophy of our Legacy main event: Johannes Gutbrod who had just won the MKM Series Legacy main event in Frankfurt. And Steffen Möller piloting RUG Lands. Game 1 Both players kept their opening seven cards and Gutbrod was going first. During the early phase of the game, Möller was able to create a Marit Lage token, but Gutbrod had Monastery Mentor and Swords to Plowshares for the 20/20 token. After this aggressive attempt, Möller tried to play the control...

Semifinal: Stefan Schumacher vs. Tomasz Sodomirski

In this semifinal pairing Stefan Schumacher and his Grixis Death's Shadow deck were facing off against Tomasz Sodomirski, piloting Dredge.

Schumacher played a land and passed the turn. Sodomirski dredged Stinkweed Imp in his draw step. He played a land and Bloodghast entered...

Final: Maciej Fidzinski vs. Tom De Decker

After five rounds plus quarter- and semifinals, only two players were left to duke it out for the title and trophy of our Vintage main event: Poland's Maciej Fidzinski who had already beaten his opponent during the Swiss rounds playing Ravager Shops. And Tom De Decker piloting Esper Paradoxical Mentor which he build here at the venue right before the Vintage main event started. He told me that he added black especially for Yawgmoth's Will because he likes playing Vintage and having a lot of fun in this format. Game 1 Both players kept their opening seven. Since he...

Quarterfinal: Michal Kluczek vs. Jens Gerstenberg

After five rounds of Vintage, only eight players remained in the running for the fame and the fortune. In this quarterfinal, a truly international affair, Michal Kluczek from Poland faced off against Jens Gerstenberg from Germany. While Kluczek decided to play Dredge, Gerstenberg chose an unpowered BUG deck. Game 1 Both players kept their opening seven cards and Kluczek began with an powerful first turn. He played and activated Bazaar of Baghdad discarding Golgari Grave-Troll, Cabal Therapy, and Bloodghast. Gerstenberg resolved Thoughtseize but that was not enough to disrupt the Dredge player. In his second turn Kluczek had a...
