[b] Hi Niklas, tell us why you brought Qliphort to YCS Prague? [/b]
[quote] I chose Qliphort because the deck has a favourable Match-Up against Nekroz. We built the deck to beat Nekroz. The deck can maindeck the all important floodgates and I even found room for a few tech cards. People don’t [mst] [q scout] anymore. They save it for [vane] and [sd]. So I can get my searches to collect my combo pieces.
[b] What were you expectations going into this event?[/b]
[quote] To be honest I did far better than expected today. My success took me by surprise and I feel very confident going into Top 32.

[b] Do have any Tech cards?[/b]
[quote] I maindeck 2 copies of [sealing c]. The card gives me the edge in the Nekroz Match-Up and it’s also very strong against. Satellarknights. I tribute one earth monster to remove two cards from my opponents Graveyard. It also helps to dodge [nz valk] and win quickly. So far the card worked out for me, I’m glad I chose to play it. Another strong pick today was [mf], which punishes my opponent when he’s overextending.
[b] Tell us about your Match-Ups?[/b]
[quote] As I said, I built the deck to beat Nekroz. The mirror match is not easy. It’s like a die roll, very much dependent on the opening hand.
[b] Any last words?[/b]
[quote] I added a [herald of arc] to my Extra Deck, because I knew a deck playing [herald of arc] would win this event. After the event I can say: I played it as well! I’m just joking. *laughs* Qliphort doesn’t need the Extra Deck a lot, so I included a few random cards.
