 Channel Fireball Legacy 3K Top 8

Which deck did you play and why?

 Sneak and Show - I wanted to play a Brainstorm deck. The only ones that I felt were good against the entire field are Grixis control and Sneak and Show. Sneak and Show just felt like the better of the two.

What would you change about your deck?

 Unban Deathrite Shaman so I can play something else altogether.

What card are you most worried about playing against in the Top 8?

 Hymn to Tourach

Anything else you’d like to add?

 I’m glad to be from the San Francisco bay area where there are several stores that keep Legacy alive and well.

 Nothing exciting. Couple 11-4 GPs and SCG Open Team Top 8s

 Life from the Loam. Lands is the only real bad match up other than the turn 1 combo decks.

 Day 2 some GPs

Which deck did you play and why?

 Miracles - You can draw more cards than anyone without a Griselbrand. White cards allow you to deal with any threat so you don’t have the blind spots that Grixis does.

 Nothing. I have the cards to win any matchup and cantrips to find them.

What card are you most worried about playing against in the Top 8?

 Boseiju. He says he shelters all, but mostly he just helps summon demons and Eldrazi.

Anything else you’d like to add?
