I am writing this fresh off the heels of Pro Tour Amonkhet where I must congratulate Gerry Thompson on his much deserved win. The last time I got to work with Gerry was on a Mono-Black deck I played for Pro Tour Gatecrash, where he picked up his first top 8, so it's good to see decks with 22 basic Swamps can still get the job done! Congrats to the rest of the top 8 as well, with a special shoutout to Christian Calcano for checking off that first one!
Aside from the players who made the top 8 though, many of you might be worried about the lists that made it to the elimination rounds. Four decks containing Aetherworks Marvel can be a little disheartening, as playing against that deck often just feels like you are flipping coins. But, while the Pro Tour brought Marvel, it also brought a lot of other decks and a relatively diverse metagame. That is not necessarily the world we have been living in, so I today I wanted to talk about how we build properly for that environment and to propose a list that I think does just that.
