Accomplishments - Paul posted back to back Top 8's at GP Anaheim and Oakland.

In this article, Paul Rietzl takes a first look at Standard with Fifth Dawn, breaking down just what the possible Skullclamp ban means to the format and providing all new decklists of the two big boys on the block: Affinity and Goblins...

Accomplishments - Paul has had a breakout year as a rising YMG star, posting back to back top 8s at GP Anaheim and GP Oakland, as well as placing in the top 16 at PT Kobe. Paul is ranked 9th in the world for Composite and 16th in the world for Constructed, with a rating of 2130.
