"So what are you playing?" is pretty much the standard of polite small talk this morning, the question players have been asking each other over and over during the early rounds of the tournament. We've done some snooping too, and can already tell you what decks some of the bigger names in the room are playing. Well, we could, but we don't want to spoil anyone's fun, so we're just going to give you a deck archetype breakdown.

6 UWR Stoneblade/Delver
6 BUG Delver
6 Storm
3 Death and Taxes
3 Elves
3 WUBG Deathblade (Stoneblade splashing green for Deathrite Shaman)
2 BURG Delver
2 Miracles
2 Sneak & Show
2 Stoneblade
1 Maverick
1 Merfolk
1 Omni-Tell
1 RUG Delver
1 UR Delver

These are the decks played by the following group of people, including a Hall of Famer, several Pro Tour and Grand Prix champions, and also known Legacy experts like Thomas Enevoldsen, Fabian Görzgen, or Julian Knab who won the Bazaar of Moxen tournament here in Paris three months ago.
