Reckless Bushwhacker from

Hi, congrats on your Masters Win!  I will be conducting you Winner's Interview
So first off, that finals was really sweet to watch!  Game one was super convincing and game two was really close.  How'd you think it went?

Yeah, Skyfish was really unfortunate being stuck on 2 lands game 1, and drawing all Goblin Bushwhackers in game 2 felt really unfair.
It sure looked that way!  So let's talk about your deck choice. It looked very strong for the weekend.  Why did you pick it (RW Sligh) in particular?

Make a Stand from

Snapcaster-Bolt: Spicey!
How/Who did you prepare for this, if at all?
I tried a few games against random people in main room on Cockatrice.
That's where a lot of us do, for sure.  What was your most interesting match of the weekend?  I'm sure the Bushwhacker engine gave you a lot of really explosive draws!
The games where i drew more than one Bushwhacker were really favorable for me, but there is no particular match in memory.
Ok. So, as our current number one Constructed ranked player, what does this Master title mean for you?  Is the cushioning nice?
It feels great.
1870 is EXTREMELY Impressive!  Congrats on that too!
Really, is that a lot?
You're #1 on the Constructed Points Leaderboard - of course!
pan_klobouk: Sweet.
So finally, and most importantly - what are you gonna do with that $25 prize?
I havent decided yet.
Buying Foil Bushwhackers has to be on that list for sure now though, right?
Haha, I already bought 20 copies of them.
Wow!  True Fan right here!  Anyway, so congratulations again of you're Masters Win, and well see you around the servers some time soon!
Thanks so much! See you around.
