Creative Decks on top of the field

[p]I started to write this article while round 4 was still underway. I took a look at the top tables and I was quite surprised to see so many creative Decks doing extremely well – at least for the time being, that was. Head inside and see for yourself what’s been going on!

Table 1 featured Soner Güngör (Mermail) vs. Nick Cuypers' Wind-Ups

[p]Table 1 features the 2 Decks that a majority of the field expects to win this weekend. Don’t despair, though, as table 2 paints a rather different picture: Quentin Cedelle playing Gadgets vs. Christian Scheidt’s Six Samurai! Wow, talk about an unexpected pairing!
[/p][p]
Table 3 couldn’t quite match that pairing, but there was a lone Agent player on table 4: Dennis Borgmann. He waited for his opponent to come back since they got Deck Checked.

Quite the competition at the top tables!

The first Wind-Up mirror with Floris van Asch getting paired against Germany’s Rusty Adler. Spoiler: Van Asch emerged victorious and had to go up against Quentin Cedelle in the following round, which also happened to be our Feature Match pick.
[/p][p]
Robert Streun and his Geargia Deck had to go up against Gregor Korka’s … Prophecy Deck? Wow, another great match we would have liked to cover, but we can’t feature them all.
[/p][p]
Table 7 marked the first appearance of the Fire Fist archetype. Jaakko Penttinen tried his luck against Giovanni Tavola’s Wind-Up Deck.
[/p][p]
Table 8 featured the same match-up we had already seen on table 1, so nothing out of the ordinary here, while table 9 was a Mermail mirror between Pawel Bilek and Sascha Hoffman.

So many shinies in the Mermail Mirror!

Another Fire Fist Deck had to go up against Wind-Ups on table 10, but don’t you worry, we’re gonna get creative in just another second as table 11 featured Pablo Mirto’s Gladiator Beasts (!) vs. Michel Co’s Fire Fists. It seems like you guys will be in for a couple more treats today!
[/p][p]
Nicolas Petz, who rose to fame with his Watt Deck, relied on something less ordinary today; he’s also playing Fire Fists. He had to overcome Sten Leybaert’s Wind-Ups to remain undefeated in competition.

More Decks remained in competition, thanks to Marcel Postleb who piloted a Dino Rabbit Deck rather successfully I might add. The remaining three noteworthy Decks could be found on tables 15 and 17 with both Tomasz Sikora and Daniel Hannig putting their trust in Inzektors and Bruno Zorko on table 16 who opted to go for … Six Samurai!
[/p][nbsp]
More creative Decks could be found on tables 13 and beyond!

All things considered, we couldn’t be much happier with how things unfolded today in Bochum. Let’s hope it will stay that way and we’ll have just as much diversity in Day 2!
