Last Chance Grand Prix Trial Winning Decklists

Here in Shizuoka there was quite the turn out for last chance trials, with eight filling as soon as the doors opened for event registration. These 32 player knockout flights also had some knockout prizes, with the 3 byes being juiced up by the inclusion of the Crystalline Sliver foil that was long ago produced as an FNM card, but never distributed. Some big names played in the trials, including Olivier Ruel who wanted to get some last minute testing in of his deck. There were some familiar faces picking up byes too. Naoki Shimizu, the new face of Japanese deck tech had another creation which means that he'll start on three wins in the main event. He designed it on Thursday and named it after a Japanese proverb of completing the picture of a dragon by filling in it's eye. The finished work is a mana-ramping 'good stuff' deck that navigates the mana maze to play some of the most powerful cards in the format with ease.

With the 15th anniversary of Magic this year, there are plenty of hot prizes on offer as part of the celebration. When the field is cut on Sunday, there are some special side events, including a Tribal Wars constructed event, with a prize of uncut foil Japanese Morningtide sheets, and a Vintage event with a box of Japanese Portal 3 Kingdoms up for grabs. When you throw in the foil Call of the Herd given out to each player in the GP, there is a whole lot of swag here at GP Shizuoka, and that is set to continue at GPs all year.
