METAGAME OF THE THREE-BYE PLAYERS

Posted in GRAND PRIX STOCKHOLM 2014 - COVERAGE - EVENTS on October 25, 2014

By Frank Karsten

With approximately a thousand players in the room, there's no chance we could tell you about the whole of the Day 1 metagame. Something we can tell you about, however, are the deck choices of all 10 players who had three byes. Here in Stockholm, this group consists of:

 

  • No. 5 ranked Ivan Floch
  • No. 10 ranked Stanislav Cifka
  • Platinum pro Patrick Dickmann
  • Platinum pro Martin Juza
  • Gold pro Valentin Mackl
  • Gold pro Pierre Dagen
  • Gold pro Christian Seibold
  • Gold pro Matej Zatlkaj
  • Hall of Famer Olle Rade
  • Hall of Famer Nicolai Herzog

 

Here's the archetype breakdown of what these players are playing:

There is no consensus at all! With so many different archetypes being represented, the format appears to be appears to be wide open. More on Sunday, when we have a detailed breakdown of all Day 2 decks for you.
