Alexander Reed-Lofts is a novelist!


Name: Alexander Reed-Lofts
Age: 24
Occupation: Novelist

What Deck are you playing and why?
Bujins because I like the inspiration behind it, the slow play and control style because it allowed me to learn to play more conservatively playing since august last year.

Are you going to Europeans and what do you think to the location?
Yes I went to Euros last year and I will this year too. I haven’t been to Amsterdam so I’d very much like to see the scenery as well as compete in euros.

What’s the best play you’ve seen this weekend
In the Top 32 when I managed to get out of 2 Number 66: Master Key Beetle protecting Light-Imprisoning Mirror and Safe Zone, kind of a nightmare for Bujins.

Name: David Stephen
Age: 27
Occupation: Retail worker

What Deck are you playing and why?
Harpies because I’ve been using it for 2 years its fun and has got a lot of plays. Lightning Chidori is a beast.

Are you going to Europeans and what do you think to the location?
I’m undecided whether to go but Amsterdam seems like a fun place to go to.

What’s the best play you’ve seen
At one point I Soul Charged for 4 and made two Chidori, bouncing two unneeded cards for game.


is giddy to be here!

Matthew Mills is giddy to be here!




Name: Matthew Mills
Age: 16
Occupation: Student

What Deck are you playing and why?
I would say Limit Level Control but it’s Geargia really. I’m running it because I like the artwork.

Are you going to Europeans and what do you think to the location?
Maybe but I can’t afford it at the moment, hopefully if I win I will go! I really like Amsterdam so it’s a good location.

What’s the best play you’ve seen this weekend?
I activated Soul Charge a lot, that set up all my key plays this weekend.


Tom Paine is our last years winner!

Tom Paine is our last year's winner!




Name: Tom Paine
Age: 19
Occupation: Student

What Deck are you playing and why?
Infernity because it’s faster than the other Decks and Soul Charge is really good in it

Are you going to Europeans and what do you think to the location?
Hopefully, I don’t really mind where it is. In England would have been nice!

What’s the best play you’ve seen?
My opponent had Skill Drain, Stardust Dragon and Scrap Dragon and I played Number 85: Crazy Box so he had to play Torrential Tribute.


is gunning for gold!

Romas Sabaljauskas is gunning for gold!




Name: Romas Sabaljauskas
Age: 21
Occupation: Call Centre Worker

What Deck are you playing and why?
Infernity because I love the Deck and with Soul Charge I’ve decided to play it since last format. I’ve been playing it for a year and a half actually.

Are you going to Europeans and what do you think to the location?
If I get a free trip! It’s a nice place because the more experienced older players will go so they have more to do outside of the event


Jake Quinsee is a world class player!

Jake Quinsee is a world class player!




Name: Jake Quinsee
Age: 21
Occupation: Salesman & Professional Poker Player

What Deck are you playing and why?
I’m playing Mermail because I believe it’s the most consistent in the current format in a field like this. I would rather not play a Deck that is not as good against a softer field.

Are you going to Europeans and what do you think to the location?
I don’t know just yet. I love the choice of location, I’m really glad Konami are putting it in destinations players want to go to. Players want a holiday, they want to go out and spend money, they want a reason to travel.

What the best play you’ve seen?
Not a lot, I’ve been drawing pretty bad, the games have been grinding.


Ben Sherman doesn't need to pay extra for monogrammed clothing!

Ben Sherman doesn't need to pay extra for monogrammed clothing!




Name: Ben Sherman
Age: 22

What Deck are you playing and why?
Mermail, I’ve been playing it ever since Wind-Ups got hit. I just really like the Deck, it does whatever you want it to and can get past anything. There’s so many resources to overwhelm the opponent.

Are you going to Europeans and what do you think to the location?
If I win today I will be! I think it is in a good location, they chose somewhere relatively central.

What the best play you’ve seen?
Can’t think of any, mind has gone blank!


Miles Sage is playing Noble Knights!

Miles Sage is playing Noble Knights!




Name: Miles Sage
Age: 21
Occupation: Security Guard

What Deck are you playing and why?
Noble Knights because I built it from scratch and it’s nice to play my own Deck

Are you going to Europeans and what do you think to the location?
I am going to Europeans and I love this location.

What’s the best play you’ve seen this weekend?
Top 32 when I Summoned Noble Knight Drystan, then activated Noble Arms - Arfeudutyr to pop the Noble Arms card equipped to Borz. That way I could make a Rank 4 play and gain 2000 Life Points while doing it.
