Learning from Previous Victories


Despite the modest 31 people turn up, the event saw a good and vibrant environment in Lisbon.
The metagame was strongly influenced by the recent pro tour in Madrid and GP Toronto, with a strong presence of company decks, GW tokens, different versions of control decks and RG ramp decks looking to overwhelm opponents with Ulamog or deliver a finishing blow with a goggle-empowered Fall of the Titans.

In the control department, the decks were mostly 3 colored, either recurring to Esper, Mardu and even Grixis to control the board with a mix of mass and target removal against the barrage of creatures from the more aggro opponents. There were even two color builds looking to control the board with Languish and Declaration in Stone to follow up with a Ormendahl hastened by Secure the Wastes (WB) and overwhelm the opponent with a zombie army, courtesy of Kalitas, and turning the tables on the opponent with a Dragonlord Silumgar (UB).
Although there were a heavy presence of decks that took the prize in previous large scale events, the great winner of the day was a strong yet slightly over sighted deck: Aristocrats. The fast creature deck proved to be too much for the fast mana strategy to stand
