propelled
Name, Age, Nationality:
Real name is Christian, while on ML and Cockatrice I play under the name propelled.
What deck did you play?
I played Mono-white Death and Taxes.
What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss?
My worst matchups are probably Belcher and Elves are my worst, Infect is also pretty bad. Luckily I didn't match up against those in the swiss.
How’d you prepare for the master?
Nothing specifically, but I've been playing Death and Taxes exclusively in Legacy for the last 3-4 months, which I felt gave me a pretty solid understanding of the decks strengths and weaknesses.
In hindsight are there any changes that you would've made to your list, or what deck would you have rather have played?
In my sideboard I switched out Manriki-Gusari and Wilt-Leaf Liege for 2x Holy Light, since it seemed very useful against Elves and Infect in particular. So far I didn't play any of them, and there seems to be a good amount of other DnT decks along with decks like Storm in the top8, where the Holy Lights are useless.
What was your best card main deck? What was your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
Best one was probably Wasteland or Umezawa's Jitte. The least useful one today was Mirran Crusader. Worst sideboard card so far was Holy Light, since I picked it to help in specific matchups that I didn't meet.
Shoutouts to anyone/anything?
Shoutout to Antalagor and NewRussianPirate, my fellow DnT players! :)
Suggestions for improving the overall Magic-League experience?
Generally very solid, I would love some more Legacy masters though, considering
the last one was in the end of December last year.

Name: Skyfish
Age: 20
Nationality: USA
What deck did you play?
Dredge

Why did you play it?
I usually play dredge in legacy until everyone starts boarding grave hate, which hasn't happened yet.
What is your best/worst matchup, and how did you fare against it?
Storm because they can be faster, and decks with Deathrite Shaman. I won against the first by being faster, and lost to the second.
What was your favorite match in the swiss?
First round bye, got to sleep in.
Are there any changes you would make to the deck (Best cards and worst)?
Breakthrough is the best cantrip in the deck, and I'm not sure why some lists run fewer than 4. I have 4 Leyline of the Void in the sideboard, but I'm not sure if the Magic-League meta requires 4 slots for grave hate.
What is your favorite thing about Legacy?
Deck diversity! Also, games are less dependent on the opening hand than in Modern.
How did you prepare for the master?
Didn't.

annyoing: high tide, eldrazi, miracles.

Well, I only played 3. Game 1 vs olii was very interesting. It was the mirror match and it was a pretty long attricious game, where I was behind all the time and finally find an edge to win.

So much D&T. Probably next time playing Sword of Light & Shadow.
