04.07.2015 | 18:40 |

For our first Deck Feature of the day we picked Lewis Tulodziecki with his Volcanic Deck. He tried to move the deck a little further by adding the Star Seraph engine. So far it served him well carrying a x:1 record into Round 6.

[b] Hi Lewis, why did you choose to play such an unconventional Deck today? [/b]
[quote] I felt like it was a strong pick against the current metagame. The deck supports floodgates very well making it a strong antimeta pick. Other than that I didn’t have the other cards to build a Nekroz or Burning Abyss deck.
[b] What are your Tech Picks going into the Event? [/b]
[quote] I maindeck [mistake] which is especially strong against the Nekroz and Qliphort Match-Up. In other matchups it still serves as fodder for [planter]. [rai oh] is very similar and [scatter] helps me to protect it.
[b] Please explain the best opening hand? [/b]
[quote] I either want to start with the Seraph combo which is either [scepter] or [monk] and [sovereignty]. Another good opening is a way to fetch a [blazereload] which is either [rocket] or [monk] plus a [shell] or [scatter]. [blazereload] is the heart and soul of the deck. It draws cards and can interrupt my opponents plays, which is generally a big strength of the deck.
[b] Can you tell us about your Match-Ups? [/b]
[quote] My weakest Match-Ups are Burning Abyss and probably Qliphort where [scatter] doesn’t do a whole lot. They float too much. Ritual Beast is probably the best one as you could see in the Feature Match.
[b]What were your expectations for this event? [/b]
[quote] I’m hoping to keep doing well. My main goal going into this event was to get to Top 64.
[b]Any final words? [/b]
[quote] I want to say thank to all the people who lend me cards and made my success possible.
