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.

Last weekend, thousands of players from all over the world competed for a shot to represent their countries in the World Magic Cup. Each country had a qualifier for one of the four slots on its team. If you missed out on the opportunity to represent your country, there are two more weekends of qualifiers! Check out the WMCQ schedule here!

One of the players who won his way onto their national team was Nelson J. Suarez, who won the WMCQ in Venezuela this past weekend. His deck of choice was a White-Black Midrange deck very similar to the one Owen Turtenwald and William Jensen used to make the Top 8 of Pro Tour Magic 2015.

The strength of this deck comes from its effectiveness against other base-black decks. Blood Baron of Vizkopa in particular is very difficult to either race or remove from opposing black decks. The biggest difference between Nelson's deck and other black decks was the move from Underworld Connections to Sign in Blood. With opposing decks becoming quicker and quicker, Nelson valued a more efficient method of card drawing.
