Top 5 Players of the Weekend
5. Tom+Ross on his way to a12-0 record before taking his first loss. Along with his recent IQ success in Florida, Logan is in prime position to earn his spot in the Players' Championship. Despite crushing the Swiss, Logan and his Abzan Aggro build fell in the quarterfinals to Zach Mandelblatt on Jeskai Black. Logan has one Invitational Top 8 to his name from 2014, but his second Top 8 would come at a perfect time next weekend in Las Vegas. Check out Logan's Abzan Aggro decklist Todd+Anderson in the quarterfinals he fell to eventual champion, Vikram Kudva. While many players have forgotten about Five-Color Bring to Light, Joe is still championing the deck and his Top-4 finish showed its power while giving Joe another 15 Open points to his total. Joe will be in Las Vegas next week to attempt to put a lock on his return trip to the Players' Championship. Check out Joe's Five-Color Bring to Light decklist Monastery+Mentor, and Gideon, Vikram demonstrated the strength of the midrange Esper deck, even cutting Secure+the+Wastes to play more copies of Duress to protect his Mentors and Planeswalkers. After beating fellow Colorado player Paul Bradford in the quarterfinals, Vikram took down Joe+Lossett to set up an all Colorado finals. Vikram got trampled by Lee Marino in Game 1, but took the two sideboarded games to claim the trophy. Check out Vikram's Esper Tokens decklist here.
