Name, Age, Nationality:
 Casey Miller, 16, USA
 
What deck did you play?
 Living End
 
What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss?
Spell based combo decks like Storm and Ad Nauseum. Closest thing I played against was Through the Breach, which I beat using a Living End to remove an Emrakul.
 
How’d you prepare for the master?
I don't really play much modern anymore, so I just picked up my old modern deck, gold fished once, changed a few sideboard cards, then registered.
 
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 need more testing to change the list, but a 4th Beast Within in the 75 would be nice. I should have played Eldrazi, because it is not often you get to play a deck that broken, but I had played it so little.
 
What was your best card main deck? What what your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
Best MD: Violent Outburst, instant speed Living End is really good.
Best SB: Jund Charm, it is super versatile.
Worst MD: Living End, I hate drawing it. Sadly I drew all 3 in one game today.
Worst SB: Slaughter Games, there isn't a deck I want it against where I would survive long enough to cast.
 
Shoutouts to anyone/anything?
CollectorMania for being a great card shop
 
Suggestions for improving the overall Magic-League experience?
You guys have done a great job thus far. I would like tournaments for more obscure formats, like build your own standard.
