I got 1st out of about 60 people.

I had the most ridiculous pool you could ever hope to see:

// Sideboard
SB: 1 [RTR] Korozda Monitor
SB: 1 [RTR] Rix Maadi Guildmage
SB: 1 [RTR] Nivix Guildmage
SB: 2 [RTR] Heroes' Reunion
SB: 1 [RTR] Fall of the Gavel
SB: 1 [RTR] Mercurial Chemister
SB: 1 [RTR] Search Warrant
SB: 1 [RTR] Towering Indrik
SB: 1 [RTR] Axebane Guardian
SB: 2 [RTR] Urban Burgeoning
SB: 1 [RTR] Death's Presence
SB: 1 [RTR] Tenement Crasher
SB: 1 [RTR] Survey the Wreckage
SB: 2 [RTR] Splatter Thug
SB: 1 [RTR] Dynacharge
SB: 1 [RTR] Rakdos Shred-Freak
SB: 2 [RTR] Golgari Guildgate
SB: 1 [RTR] Rakdos Guildgate
SB: 1 [RTR] Tablet of the Guilds
SB: 1 [RTR] Golgari Longlegs
SB: 1 [RTR] Judge's Familiar
SB: 1 [RTR] Grisly Salvage
SB: 1 [RTR] Essence Backlash
SB: 1 [RTR] Chemister's Trick
SB: 1 [RTR] Coursers' Accord
SB: 1 [RTR] Common Bond
SB: 1 [RTR] Ethereal Armor
SB: 1 [RTR] Eyes in the Skies
SB: 2 [RTR] Rootborn Defenses
SB: 1 [RTR] Keening Apparition

SB: 1 [RTR] Pyroconvergence
SB: 1 [RTR] Slum Reaper
SB: 2 [RTR] Racecourse Fury
SB: 2 [RTR] Perilous Shadow
SB: 1 [RTR] Stab Wound
SB: 1 [RTR] Dead Reveler
SB: 1 [RTR] Cremate
SB: 3 [RTR] Deviant Glee
SB: 1 [RTR] Assassin's Strike
SB: 1 [RTR] Psychic Spiral
SB: 1 [RTR] Inspiration
SB: 1 [RTR] Downsize
SB: 1 [RTR] Dispel

It was too bad I couldn't really justify splashing Red for Chemister; I might have if it gave me more removal spells. I'm also not sure if I should have went heavier on the populate mechanic. I did have Grove of the Guardian, but chose not to play any of my populate cards. I also decided not to play Downsize (I couldn't find anything to cut). I tested Axebane Guardian, didn't like it either. Finally, I took out Death's Presence since I was usually behind when I hit the late game and needed an impact card or a card to stay alive. Definitely willing to listen to advice for how to build my pool better, as I'm new to limited.

I was about to lose to Rakdos (I think the best decks in general are probably Rakdos themed decks. Unleash is a ridiculous mechanic and the best common removal spells like Auger Spree, Stab Wound, Annihilating Fire etc. are all black or red.), but the 8th grader got a phone call from his mom and had to leave. XD

<--- lucksacking ftw

PS - Is Heroes' Reunion ever playable? Even against Rakdos? Sad

I won with Golgari. I'd paste my pool but it was pretty uninteresting.

I didnt win but I got 6th place (4-1) with Golgari. I had Abrupt Decay in my Guild Pact and got Deadbridge Goliath in one of my normal packs. Had a ton of removal (2 Launch Party, 2 Stab Wounds, Decay, The one thats +3/+3 to one and -3/-3 to another, The guy who makes both players sacrifice when he comes in) and some good pumps (2 Giant Growth and the one thats +1/+1 for each creature + trample as well as the Golgari Guildmage)

I lost round 1 then won out somehow. Out of 5 rounds I played Golgari 4 times. =/

Selesnya, but the ability to splash was more important. The top deck had 7 gates/shock lands and played four colors, never had mana problems except to a straight-up mana screw with only two lands until the last two turns.

Edit: I think he only played 3 mono-green creatures, and zero mono-white creatures.
