Felix, 30, German

What deck did you play?
Simic Aetherworks Marvel. I just felt like: what is the most unfair stuff u can do in actual standard?
And turn 4 Ulamogs and Emrakuls is definitely that. The Deck looks like a pile of crap, but its surprisingly consistent.
And it have some backup-plans when marvel cant fire.
 
What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss?
Esper Control, didnt faced it...

How’d you prepare for the master?
Just Cockatrice/Magic-league

In hindsight are there any changes that you would've made to your list, or what deck would you have rather have played?
No big changes, i like the deck how it is. there is one flexible spot atm filled by the green gearhulk. it could be any 5 drop i guess.

What was your best card main deck? What what your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
Aetherworks Marvel, Negate, Gearhulk, Jace

Alex,28,Portuguese

What deck did you play?
W/R Humans

What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss?
I have not played much yet to see the worst match ups, but one fumigate at the right time is problematic,as it happened in the last game.

How’d you prepare for the master?
Yes I played with many decks to know their potential, and chose this deck because it seems is gaining steadily in the first tournament SCG

In hindsight are there any changes that you would've made to your list, or what deck would you have rather have played?
The deck has a base made of almost 55 cards, then you have 5-6 slots that can vary depending on the target meta,probably different meta not needed 4 lightning,4 stones.

What was your best card main deck? What what your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
Smuggler's Copther tied with Thalia's Lieutnant for a best card , but dont have worst cards in deck ;)

What deck did you play?
GW Aggro

What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss? Maybe RW Aggro?
Won fairly easily against the one list I played.

How’d you prepare for the master?
Built bad decks, watched the SCG opened and copied the potential best list.

In hindsight are their any changes that you would've made to your list, or what deck would you have rather have played.
3mana Nissa might be better than 1-2 of my 3 drops. Deck is probably the best week 1 deck.

What was your best card main deck? What what your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
Gearhulk, Fumigate, Blossoming Defense, Nissa, Vital Force was my worst sb card since I never faced a deck slow enough to warrant bringing it in.

Temur Emerge
 
What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss?
Im not really sure, the current T2 is a new one. I dont even know what decks are in meta.

How’d you prepare for the master?
Played few minis last week.

In hindsight are there any changes that you would've made to your list, or what deck would you have rather have played?
I would probably change deck to one more agressive, but I still not sure of any Boros/Rakdos Aggro list.

What was your best card main deck? What what your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
Best main card is Kozilek's Return, side probably Dragonmaster Outcast. Worst main card is Ishkanah, side probably Appetite for Unnatural, but I feel like I have to play it against Vechicules.

Shoutouts to anyone/anything?
Good job guys!
