Congratulations to Greg Mitchell, our Seattle Legacy Open champion! His BUG Delver deck delivered, but will the archetype see the same success next week in Los Angeles? Join Cedric Phillips, Patrick Sullivan, and Andrew Shrout to find out!
Neil Hartman had slain all challengers so far, taking his R/W Burn deck all the way to the finals. He had just defeated one B/W Midrange deck in the semifinals, and now sat down against another, this time in the hands of Harrison Hite. Stormbreath versus Blood Baron for all the marbles!
Second-seed Mitch Yunker was happy to be on the play with his aggressive Orzhov Humans deck, hoping to get out ahead with little beaters and steal a quick victory. Robin Schmit had other plans, however, and brought the bogeyman of standard, Mono-Black Devotion, to battle.
Greg Mitchell had battled past a pair of Terminus decks on his way to the finals, and his BUG Delver deck faced a real change of pace in the form of Davis Bauman’s Death and Taxes deck. Would Thalia and Company earn their second Legacy Open trophy, or would the Delvers and Deathrites take it down?
Russell Martin squeaked into Top 8 as the eight seed with his Sneak and Show deck, and he immediately faced one of his worst matchups in the form of David Bauman’s Death and Taxes. Could the “underdog” Emrakul prevail against David’s little white hatebears?
