After a quick look at the available options, I ended up building a Grixis-colored Control build that utilized a solid suite of Instant and Sorcery spells to power out Nivix Cyclops. It had the typical Control elements - counterspells, removal, card draw, and defensive creatures. Here's what my build looked like:
I ended up with a respectable 2-1 record, but my tiebreakers were not sufficient to make Top 4. I still had a lot of fun, and actually had some very close games during Round 2. Unfortunately, the client failed to record most of my replays, and I didn't end up recording any of the game numbers, so most of the event was lost. But I did manage to recover a single game from Round 2 which I thought shows off the deck pretty well:
Anyway, the event was lots of fun. I hope you enjoyed watching the video. Next week, MPDC will be back to my beloved Standard Pauper format, and I hope to be bringing you lots of great coverage of how the metagame has evolved with the release of Dragon's Maze. Thanks for reading. See you next time!
