Hey all, I’m excited to be back with you after a long weekend in London. My own tournament ended with a disappointing 2-3 finish but there was plenty to celebrate this weekend.
After a disappointing start to the year personally and as a testing group, Christopher and I really put in the work with testing for this tournament. We did our due diligence with tons of matchups and decks that were likely irrelevant just to cover all of our bases and. And the result? A Top 4 finish for Christopher and Top 32 finishes from his brother and Michael Slutsky. Other than my own performance, a great weekend that represented a really strong understanding of the metagame.
For today’s article, I’ll be discussing some of my thoughts from this weekend on decks, testing, and gameplay. I hope this information can be of use to you all, but if you’re just looking for decklists, Brit’s article from yesterday is an incredibly good recap of the event’s top performing lists and I encourage you to check that out.

SixPrizes has been a phenomenal resource for me from the very beginning. Shortly after I started, I became a subscriber, and being able to partake in all the knowledge a lot of the best veteran players had to share helped me learn and grow as a player. I still read to this day so I can keep up with other players’ thoughts and ideas to help me stay on top of my game!
