Not yet 18 years old, Soh was the R&D pick to attend this event after garnering attention this past year with a couple of Top 8s that were credited to his massive Magic Online experience.
The Malaysian wunderkind was near the top of the standings all week and started to pull away from the pack on Thursday with a 5-1 record in the Constructed formats. Terry put in work on every format before the event and was well-prepared throughout the week. The reward for his preparation will be a chance to design a card bearing his likeness in an upcoming expansion. Look for Jin, the Master of Disruption sometime next year -- and look out for Terry Soh at the next Pro Tour.
