Name, Age, Nationality:
Al, 27, Burgerland
 
What deck did you play?
GW Tokens
 
What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss?
GB Aristocrats & 4C Rite. Lost a match to 4C Rite where both games felt pretty hopeless.
 
How’d you prepare for the master?
The usual; play Magic, watch Magic, etc.
 
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 rather have played White Eldrazi, but I don't feel the metagame would allow it. I think my list is solid, though I could maybe trim a land, and Stasis Snare feels more like a necessary evil than an asset.
 
What was your best card main deck? What what your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
Best MD: Archangel Avacyn, surprise.
Best SB: The extra Declarations. Really good when they're good.
Worst MD: Stasis Snare
Worst SB: Clip Wings. Feels unnecessary with so much exile.
 
Suggestions for improving the overall Magic-League experience?
Nope. All the problems I've had have been isolated and well-handled by the judge staff.
