Three players achieved the perfect 9-0 score yesterday.

Han Bing chose to build a hyper-aggressive deck, with a bunch of two drops, removal spells and tempo cards. As evidenced by cards like Valley Dasher and Act of Treason, he hoped to punish slower decks and achieve victory before they could stabilize. Double Mardu Roughrider and Butcher of the Horde usually end games soon enough.

Katsuhisa Saeki went with the Jeskai Way yesterday. He was fortunate to receive 4 on-color tapped duals, resulting in a great manabase. Double Warden of the Eye along with Jeskai Charm, Act of Treason and Arrow Storm proved to be great finishes in his aggressive deck.

Lastly, Charles Lai opted to play a midrange-ish 4-color control deck, with highlights such as Wingmate Roc and Ghostfire Blade. Sometimes, being greedy does pay off!
