Top 5 Players of the Week
5. Ash Durrbeck
Ash's super aggressive Mono-Red Aggro deck featured Magic Origins innovations such as Chandra%2C+Fire+of+Kaladesh and Exquisite+Firecraft that burned her way to a Top 8 bid. With many players deciding to play Abzan Control or G/R Devotion at #SCGRICH, Ash took the initiative and played a deck capable of going underneath those strategies faster than most other decks in the format. See+the+Unwritten in combination with Xenagos%2C+God+of+Revels and Atarka, World Render to hit an opponent for twenty-four damage out of nowhere! Ferocious enablers Surrak%2C+the+Hunt+Caller and Yasova+Dragonclaw round out this explosive deck that made waves all the to a Top 8 berth at #SCGRICH. Languish and Nissa, Vastwood Seer from Magic Origins, Abzan Control stood out as the most popular deck for the Day 2 metagame, and Chris played it to a Top 4 berth. Chris did make some innovations to the deck, however, adding a Dragonlord+Dromoka to the already powerful bevy of spells in the deck. Rally+the+Ancestors deck, making it an Abzan lean, mean, killing machine! With the addition of more sacrifice outlets, like Fleshbag+Marauder, and a Magic Origins flip Planeswalker that is just oozing with value in Liliana, Heretical Healer, Raymond rallied his way all the way to the finals of #SCGRICH!
