What deck did you play?
UR Delver TitI
 
What do you feel is your worst match up? How’d you do against it in the swiss?
Hyper aggro decks are always the scariest. Did not face it unless affinity counts- I won.

How’d you prepare for the master?
Tuned the deck to my liking then played it since before the last modern master.

In hindsight are there any changes that you would've made to your list, or what deck would you have rather have played?
Possibly some type of pyroclasm or rough/tumble in the board

What was your best card main deck? What what your best sideboard card? Worst main deck card? Worst sideboard card?
Lightning Bolt. This master it's ancient grudge. Rift Bolt is, but is also necessary. Dragon's Claw

RIP Team Titans and thank you previous teammates. However I must also shout out The Hive.

Suggestions for improving the overall Magic-League experience?

Possibly dividing constructed and eternal ratings into their own formats.

Jeskai control and some Grixis control. Didn't run into either, played against some Dredge and other creature-based decks, luckily.

I've been playing a version of this deck in Standard and Modern since M13.  I've played it online and at my LGS. It gets results.

I'm always messing with the SB and I'm always changing decks. This is what I felt like playing today. Maybe swap out the 1-of Fiery Impulse for a 3rd Reality Hemorrhage.

Legion Loyalist OP.  Burst Lightning? List doesn't have room for bad cards in the 75, they're all good.

Magic-League for being awesome.
