Burn, Zoo, Suicide whatever. I never faced them, but Legacy's Temur Tempo deck with Vapor Snags wasn't a fun match up.

Watch videos, lost matches, asked Goldenas how to build this monstrosity

-1 sb Viridian Corrupter +1 sb Deglamer....3mana is a lot more than I first thought it was.

Vines of Vastwood slices, dices, and then does them again at the same time. Best sb was Dismeme(ber), kills Spellskites, Goyfs, and Melira, nuff said. Worst main deck card is probably Dryad Arbor, I never needed it to foil an edict. Worst sb was Viridian Corrupter

Name, Age, Nationality
Matt, 29, New Zealand
 
What deck did you play?
Nacatl Burn
 
What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss?
Managed to dodge Soul Sisters, 5-95 match-up.  Most unfavourable match-up I played against in the Swiss was against WR Nahiri Control, managed to luck-sack game 3 when they couldn't find a red source all game.
 

How’d you prepare for the master?
Zero practise, zero sleep.  Played Burn for so long that I know the deck inside out.
 
In hindsight are there any changes that you would've made to your list, or what deck would you have rather have played?
18 lands is pretty greedy, should add an eighth fetchable land. If I had gotten sleep, Storm would have been a more probable choice.
 
What was your best card main deck? What what your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
Don't really have a best maindeck card, Burn is pretty consistent.  Worst card is any land after the fourth one.  Most useful sideboard card is Destructive Revelry, least useful sideboard card has been Kor Firewalker.
 
Shoutouts to anyone/anything?
Sean, Steve, and Jimmy.  Hopefully our podcast takes off quite well!
 
Suggestions for improving the overall Magic-League experience?
More Vintage minis, less 4am starts. :P
 
In all seriousness, it's run incredibly well.

Pagani Lorenzo, 23, Italian
 
What deck did you play?
RW Planeswalker Control
 
What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss?
UB Faerie / Burn - the only way to get away from them is winning G1, adding some kind of Hate in the maindeck; timely reinfor or moon are classical examples
 
How’d you prepare for the master?
 Testing over n' over the deck on cocka
 
In hindsight are there any changes that you would've made to your list, or what deck would you have rather have played?
adjusting the manabase (snowlands?) and adjusting the Maindeck Hate referring to the current meta
 
 What was your best card main deck? What what your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
 Nahiri + Emrakul = nuts || Boil in SB? Awsome || got a stormb. dragon maindeck, just testing. Not so satisfied.In SB I'm still thinkin about the ghostly prison (1x now)
 
Shoutouts to anyone/anything?
Not really, this deck was almost netdecked from John Pellman in SCG OPEN INDIANAPOLIS
 
Suggestions for improving the overall Magic-League experience?
Don't change at all :D
