Top 8 Interview - Rickard Osterberg

Posted in Event Coverage on December 16, 2015

By Wizards of the Coast

Rickard Osterberg, a 24-year-old from Sweden, went 4 - 2 in the draft then 5 - 0 - 1 in the standard, with his accelerated blue deck.

How long have you been playing Magic ?

For about 5 years now.

What are your biggest Magic achievments to date ?

I finished 9th at GP Copenagen, as well as making top 8 at Europeans.

How do you feel about the Swedish performance at this Championships?

Well there are 2 in the top 8 which is really great. We draft 2 or 3 times a week, but we did virtually no type 2 testing before this tournament.

How do you feel about your matchup tomorrow against Joost Winter?

It's an okay matchup, but strange things can happen. I have never met Joost befre but he is obviously a good player or he wouldn't be in the top 8.

What are your plans for the rest of the night?

I tend to have trouble sleeping anyway, so I will playtest until I am ready, then try and get some sleep.

Who is your favourite to win the Tournament?

I think that right now, the top 8 is very open.
