[b] Hi Callum, why did you choose to play a Spellbook Deck today? [/b]
I’ve been playing the Deck for quite some time so far and I couldn’t find the time to get familiar with Shaddolls and Burning Abyss. So I chose the Deck I’m most comfortable with and it paid off. I’m really surprised that Satellarknights are doing well so far – didn’t expect that.

[b] What are your Tech Picks going into the Event? [/b]
I decided to main 3 [sim] and 3 [mf] in order to slow the other Decks down. [mf] buys you a lot of time. People are not expecting it and it punishes them when they are overextending. I would even call it the MVP of the Deck.

I also side into the [sb world] build against all types of rogue Decks and also against Burning Abyss when I’m going second. [/quote]
[b] Please explain the best opening hand? [/b]
To strongest hand to start with would be a [sb cres], [sbmag] and any 2 Traps, preferably [mf] or a [chain]. [/quote]

[b] Can you tell us about your Match-Ups? [/b]
Since I’m maindecking 3 [sim] my Match-Up against the strongest decks in competition has increased a lot. [sim] slows them down to an extent that I can build my own field and take control of the board.

[b]What were your expectations for this event? [/b]
My goal was to finish X:1 which I was until last round. Unfortunately I just lost in time against Shaddolls. I’m still pretty confident that I’m able to reach Top 32. It’s only 2 more rounds![/quote]
