Standard PPTQ Honolulu – Decklists

Who doesn’t want it: fresh air, nice temperature, some sun, and Magic? These things are the recipe for the Pro Tour Honolulu. 50 players thought the same way and showed up to battle to see who would take home the RPTQ slot.

After 6 rounds and some hick-ups at the beginning it was time to announce the TOP-8. It was almost a clean cut except for our poor Wander who lost to evil tiebreakers. The TOP-8 decided to split the prizes, but they still had to play for the slot. In the end Jelco was crowned as the winner, good luck to him at RPTQ!
