25.06.2017 | 17:15 |

It all came down to this! Well, not quite but the field has been cut down to the Top 8 Duelists of the weekend. Take a look at their Profiles!

After 11 grueling Rounds of Swiss across two days and 6 further Knockout Rounds, there are only eight Duelists remaining. All of them fought hard to get where they are right now and all of them want to go to Worlds! Two more wins separate them for their big goal. Let’s find out what they are playing today.

What do you think about your chances of winning today? I guess it’s as good as anyone else. I don’t think that there is anything particular exciting about my Deck. I guess I will practice my dice rolling skills.
Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? It’s quite a regular build. I’m running a lot of draw cards like three copies of Pot of Desires and Upstart Goblin. There are a lot of unfair cards you want to see early like Soul Charge for example.
