Adam Yurchick's Pickles

Adam Yurchick has seen Top 8 action at the Grand Prix level and nearly at Pro Tour–Hollywood where he got 9th. Before that rise to glory, however, he cut his teeth as a state champion, earning the title in 2007 in Ohio. His deck of choice was this powerful mono-blue Pickles deck, so named because of the "lock" combo of Brine Elemental and Vesuvan Shapeshifter. One of his most important sideboard cards? Jace Beleren. The planeswalker quickly became a go-to sideboard addition in control mirrors, and Adam was one of the earliest adopters of the powerful card.
