City: Vierkirchen near Munich
Previous Magic Accomplishments:
I made day 2 in a number of Grand Prix; my best result is 34th place there.
Deck: Kazandu Ramp
What deck did you play this tournament, and why?
Kazandu Ramp – I wanted to play 4 copies of Ulamog and this seemed like the best deck to fit it in.
What was the best card in your main deck, and why?
Retreat to Kazandu – it helps me to be fast enough against all the mid range and aggro decks!
What was the best card out of your sideboard, and why?
Radiant Flames – I only have 2 red sources in my main deck. I hope my opponent doesn't see them in game 1 and if I then side into Flames against the super aggressive decks, he doesn't see them coming and they can wreck his day.
What was the most interesting play you made so far this tournament?
The funniest play was against a Jeskai player who was able to handle 3 copies of Ulamog; it took the fourth copy to force the concession!
RW Land Destruction; it's good in the current meta and it's lots of FUN!
What's your favorite card from Oath of the Gatewatch?
What was the most interesting play you saw or made this weekend?
Windborn Muse vs. Merfolk with 0 lands -> Muse wins!
What's the best Modern deck in your opinion (that you did not play)?
What's your nightmare match-up in the Top 8?
Abzan GW with mano creatures and Qasali Pridemage.
How did the Pro Tour affect your deck choice today?
I swapped 2 or 3 cards.
