[b]What do you think about your chances of winning today? [/b] I’m mainly here to have fun. Making the top cut was great. I’m feeling confident with my deck so I think my chances are good.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I run [bri fu], [b]Shiranui Solitaire[/b] and [fairytail] in the main deck. [psy omega] is still a force to be reckoned with in today’s metagame.
[b]Final words? [/b] I want to give shoutouts to all of my friends. And I want to point out that my deck is better than the one of Julius Schürhoff.

[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] ABC – I feel like it’s the best deck of the format before the new set is legal.
[b]What do you think about your chances of winning today? [/b] I felt confident enough to top but I was scared of the die roll. I didn’t expect to go 10:0 in Swiss. Now I have good chances to take this home to Italy.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] Im playing two traps as targets for [rafflesia]: [time space] and [bth]. Both worked out very well today.
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutouts to my teammates “Let’s do it!”

[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] PK Fire – I feel like it’ the strongest deck whether you are going first or second.
[b]What do you think about your chances of winning today? [/b] I thought I had a good chance to top 32, but I didn’t expect that I would be sitting here doing a Top 8 profile. I feel very good now.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I main [cherry] other than that it’s a fairly standard build.
[b]Final words? [/b] Shoutouts to Jared Stone for the deck ideas, we playtested a lot together. And shoutouts to the rest of the UK team.

[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Phantom Knight Burning Abyss – everyone is playing ABC and Side Decks are full of cards to beat the deck. I didn’t want to play a deck that’s so heavily sided against.
[b]What do you think about your chances of winning today? [/b] I was very confident. All of my friends were playing ABC, at least play a goodbuild.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I maindeck 6 handtraps: 3 [cherry] and 3 [c hunter]. I have 49% chance of opening at least one of them.

[b]Name: [/b] Tom Viergutz
[b]Age: [/b] 21
[b]Country: [/b] Germany, Dresden
[b]What Deck are you playing today? [/b] Lightsworn – I feel like it’s the only deck that can go second and win against ABC constantly. I played 11 ABC decks throughout the whole event and my record is 10:1.
[b]What do you think about your chances of winning today? [/b] I think the format is very luck based. But I’m playing the best deck so my chances are good.
[b]Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? [/b] I maindeck the [b]The Phantom Knights of Shade Brigandine[/b]. It summons itself as Level 4 monster and adds to the consistency of the deck. I think it’s a lot better than [pho trasher] and makes going into [minerva] a lot easier.
[b]Final words? [/b] I want to give shoutouts to all the players form Dresden and everybody that lent me cards for the weekend, especially Tony Steudner.
