Today I will be presenting not one, but two interviews from the pilots of two new decks that made the top eight of yesterday's block tournament. Below is the top eight followed by both interviews. Enjoy!
Me: How do you feel about your other matchups in the format?
Lordrandom01: My matchup against any of the Tarmogoyf decks and Mono Blue Pickles are both very much in my favor and Poisonous Slivers is very easy because they roll over to Dead/Gone. White Weenie is normally a pretty difficult matchup and Wild Pair Slivers crushes me.
Me: Thanks a lot for your time and good luck in the top eight.
dadadad: It really depends how many lands you have in play and what you have in your hand. You don't really want to go under six to seven lands. The only time I like to buy it back is when I have Rite of Flourishing in play or a lot of lands in the late game. Luckily, it is very easy to accumulate a bunch of lands.
dadadad: I rarely use the Magus, but it is really good against sliver decks. I made a guy draw 21 cards in one turn and decked him. Magus of the Jar can help against any deck but it is pretty hard to keep alive. But if it does live…
Me: Any last words?
dadadad: It's hard to give a playbook on how to play the deck. It just takes time and trial and error. It's basically instinct which is probably why I do so poorly in the mirror. I have really been wanting to add Pongify to side in against opposing Vesuvan Shapeshifters.
Me: Thanks a lot and good luck in the top eight.
There ya have it everyone. Two more decks to consider for your Pro Tour Qualifiers. TSP Block Constructed is wide open so choose a deck that you know how to play well and enjoy playing for you future Pro Tour Qualifiers.
