What Deck you playing today? I had little time to prepare for the event so I decided to use something successfull. I chose to run a Shaddoll Burning Abyss Deck with 60 cards in the Main Deck, something that did well in recent events.
What do you think about your chances of winning today? I hope to win, but can’t really expect to. Took me some rounds to get familiar with the Deck, so my chances in a mirror might not be so great.
Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? I’m playing Goyo Guardian instead of Leo, the Keeper of the Sacred Tree, because I made a mistake when writing down my Decklist! *laughs*
