Planeswalking on the Edge

From Friday Night Magic to the Pro Tour, Adam Prosak loves all types of tournament Magic. Currently, Adam is working in R&D as a developer.

Yuuki Ichikawa apparently likes playing with his back to the wall. For the second straight Pro Tour, Yuuki found himself with a 2–3 record, one loss away from elimination from the Top 8. Most players in this situation focus mostly on getting enough wins to come back for the second day of competition. Not Yuuki! For two Pro Tours in a row, Yuuki went eleven straight rounds without a loss and found himself in Top 8! A 10–0–1 record is impressive at any level of competition, but it is incredible when you consider the competition level at the Pro Tour. Yuuki beat none other than Jon Finkel during the final round of Swiss to lock up his spot into the Top 8.

Yuuki's is a midrange deck focused on using Planeswalkers as his primary threats. A whopping eleven Planeswalkers are present in this Jund deck, backed by enough disruption to let them dominate the board. Xenagos, the Reveler; Nissa, Worldwaker; and Chandra, Pyromaster all generate a threat each turn that they remain on the battlefield, and the remainder of Yuuki's deck is built to protect these Planeswalkers. Mana acceleration, pinpoint-removal spells, and discard spells all allow the Planeswalkers to accumulate advantages every turn.
