Interesting Decks on Day Two

Posted in Event Coverage on April 19, 2015

In a field where three or four decks make up almost the entire metagame it's extra interesting to look at the few gems that looks a bit out of the ordinary. Grand Prix Kraków might be remembered as the tournament of Esper Dragons, Abzan and Red Aggro, but we've dug up at least two decks that we think deserve a special mention. Not necessarily because of how good they've done. But because their creators came up with new and exciting ideas.

First out is a take on a classic archetype. Green-black midrange, brought to the table by Brazilian Eduardo Vieira who made Day Two with it. It has black removal spells and card draw (even a copy of Bitter Revelation) and the green package of Courser of Kruphix and Sylvan Caryatid. It has tons of removal against the aggressive decks in the format and a massive amount of discard spells and Planeswalkers in the sideboard should make it at least decent against control.

Check it out!

The second deck that caught our eyes is a green-white deck played by Pro Tour Fate Reforged winner Antonio del Moral Leon. The core of the deck is an assortment of green and white creatures, all costing three mana or less, and four copies of Collective Company. The Spaniard chose to back this up with powerful spells like Valorous Stance and Dromoka's Command and has some spicy cards in his sideboard. Who thought for example that Archetype of Courage would be among one of the better performing decks on Day Two this weekend?

Interesting indeed, and maybe something to pick up for a local FNM or Magic Online tournament.
