What is the most surprising card that has been played against you this weekend?

With Standard a wide-open playing field and Grand Prix boasting such high attendance numbers, you’re going to come up against a few oddballs. I talked to some of Day 2’s best and asked which cards raised their eyebrows.

Seth Manfield, 7th Ranked PlayerExplosive Vegetation. I didn’t even know there was a deck that played it.

Ray Perez, Future ProCollected Company on my end step putting two Goblin Rabblemaster into play. Yeah, I lost that one.

Jon Stern, Canada’s PrideKiora, the Crashing Wave. Unfortunately for my opponent, it was already too late by the time it showed up.

Dan Lanthier, Former Canadian National ChampionValley Dasher. It ran right into a Tasigur and died.

Paul Rietzl, Hall of Famer – Maindeck Encase in Ice. I had to call a judge, but it was legit. It was good, too, locked down a 13/13 Warden of the First Tree.

Dan Fournier, Team Canada 2015Archetype of Courage. I had to take it with Thoughtseize or I would’ve lost on the spot.
