GRAND PRIX SHIZUOKA 2013 - Round 12 Top Tables

Posted in NEWS on December 22, 2013

While our tireless workers sort through the decklists to bring you a complete Day 2 Metagame Breakdown, I took a quick tour of the top tables to see what decks were rising above the crowd.

The two big winners seem to be Mono-Blue Devotion and Mono-Red Devotion, both creature decks that have almost combo deck draws that can end games quickly. Close behind with at least four players is White Weenie. Still there's a lot of diversity out there. Mihara-style Green-Red Devotion. Black-White, Esper Control, straight Blue-White Control, even classic Mono-Black Devotion has a few adherents.

Does the wealth of creature decks mean that the Control decks are in a position to finish strong? Will Thassa and her Master of Waves bring home another trophy? Or will a rogue deck like 12-0 Shota Takao's Esper Humans carry the day?
