[b]Country: [/b] Denmark, National Champion of Denmark
[b]What Deck did win your Nationals with and what Deck are you playing today? [/b] Salamangreat, I still feel like it’s a viable deck, but I had to make small changes. At our Nationals I expected to see a lot of Orcust, here I didn’t. I was running Ghost Belle at Nationals and dropped it for Euros.
[b]Who was your toughest opponent at your National Championship? [/b] My toughest match was during my Top 8 game against Daniel. He also won nationals two years ago. I won Game 1 after a long grind game. In Game 2 I’m ahead and we go into time. I open with (imperial] and have to pay Life Points as it’s mandatory now. In the end I was able to do enough damage to win nonetheless.
[b]How did you prepare for this event? [/b] I didn’t prepare that much. Mostly, it is the same metagame. My intention was to create a deck that is well rounded to have a decent Match- Up against all the current metadecks.
[b]Finally, have you had a chance to explore Utrecht yet? [/b] I’ve been here two times before. I’ve been to Amsterdam and Utrecht . Both are very nice cities with fine places to eat.
[b]Final Word[/b] Shoutouts to my friends and family.

[b]What Deck did win your Nationals with and what Deck are you playing today? [/b] Sky Striker, I did minor changes for Euros. I stuck with the deck, because it’s the one I feel most comfortable with and I didn’t want to invest too much time trying something different.
[b]Who was your toughest opponent at your National Championship? [/b] In Top 8 I had to play a mirror match. I was testing the new card that was released only a few days ago: Ghost Sister. The card was my only to turn the game around and I was lucky enough to draw into it.
[b]How did you prepare for this event? [/b] I was testing a lot with my friends and talking theory. I didn’t want to overdo it too much, because for me it usually ends in total chaos. I wanted to keep it as simple as possible.
[b]Finally, have you had a chance to explore Utrecht yet? [/b] It’s the second time, I’m here in Utrech. The city is beautiful especially in the night-time. People are very friendly and I enjoy it a lot.
[b]Final Word[/b] Shoutouts to my teammates from Team TJBalkan. Thanks to all the positive experiences in Utrecht and at Nationals. I’m having a great time. Everybody should get the chance and experience how it is to be a National Champion!

[b]What Deck did win your Nationals with and what Deck are you playing today? [/b] Sky Striker, I’ve been playing it for a year, so I know it very well and the format hadn’t changed so my playstyle didn’t have to change. I thought it would be a good deck for Euros as well.
[b]Who was your toughest opponent at your National Championship? [/b] My Top 16 match was very close. He wins Game 1 and is in a winning position in Game 2. I was able to mount a comeback and after being tied in life in Game 3 I was able to win it. I was hanging in the ropes there, but in the end I pulled it off.
[b]How did you prepare for this event? [/b] Talked a lot with my friends and online. Different points of view can be very helpful in preparing for an event like this.
[b]Finally, have you had a chance to explore Utrecht yet? [/b] It looks like a really nice place to be in. For this is only going to be a short trip as we are leaving on Sunday.
[b]Final Word[/b] Good Luck to my Team The Disciples and shoutouts to Michael Loizou and the rest of the brotherhood family.
