Day 3: 4-2
What did you play in Block and why? Affinity because it is the best deck by far. Anyone who claims to have a good matchup against the deck is lying
What did you play in Standard and why? G/W Slide. It has a good matchup against both R/G Goblins and Ravager, and it just felt right during testing.
What do you think of your chances on Sunday? Affinity is a pretty good matchup and most of the games are post-board, which is good. Mana Leak can be scary though
Do you have any interesting stories from the first 18 rounds? My first round I had about a 10% chance to win against Tooth and Nail and beat that deck, and then lost back to back favorable matchups the next two rounds.
Fun Facts: One of the youngest T8 competitors of all time. He watches a lot of movies - Pulp Fiction is his favorite, even though he says he is too young to have seen it legally. He plays a lot of Magic Online and Top4'd his first solo Grand Prix, losing only to Kai.
