Interview with 3/25/18 MASTER Winner: dschidi!
Written by iKringe on March 28, 2018
That concludes our WONDERFUL Master of 24 people! :D I'm so excited with how far we've come in just 2 months of Masters. Stay tuned for more information as it comes available by going to our Articles page!
This interview was conducted shortly after dschidi's victory over iKringe in the finals.
iKringe: Congratulations on your victory! Though, I must admit, I'm a little on the salty side, tell me and everyone else a little about yourself.
dschidi: I can totally understand you. You played a good final and fought the good fight. I was on the lucky side this time. Well, you know how it is :) Anyway, my name is Felix or dschidi (GD) and I'm a 32 year old magic player from Germany. I live in the south of Germany, my hometown is Tubingen. I've played on Cockatrice for about 5 years now and on Magic-league for about 2 years. In paper, I'm not playing much at the moment, cause I have an 8 year old daughter and a job. Also I'm happy to play in the evening on Cocktrice (magic-league) :)
iKringe: Thank you so much for your humbleness. Your decklist for today was Red-Deck Wins, correct? Do you have another name for it? What drove you to play this version of the deck?
dschidi: Yeah, I named it Big red... Because it goes a little "bigger" and over the top of the typical "Hazored" shell. Thats why only 1 Hazoret is in the maindeck. It doesnt empty its hand all that fast. I like the deck, because it's very consistent in what it's doing. And it has something to do at any stage of the game. Sometimes it has really aggressive starts with Bomat and Kari Zhev into Crasher. Some other times it will play removal early game and take over with Chandra and glorybringer. Also I like that it's very hard and complicated to deal with. When you are on the defensive against me it's hard to find the correct answers to the threats. Most of my creatures dodge common removal (Fatal push / Lightning strike) and/or have built-in 2 for 1 (Phoenix/Glorybringer). You will need different removal for Bomat and Kari than for Chandra and Phoenix. Thats kind of what made it good vs your deck too is my guess.
iKringe: Well, there is certainly a LOT of truth behind this! Your creatures make board states complicated at every stage.
iKringe: How do you test your decks/decide on what to play? Or if I may word it another way, what made you land on Big Red as your deck?
dschidi: So... Honestly, I dont like Standard these days. I knew it was dominated by Hazoret and Scarab God. I played Ramunap Red for a while during the Temur Energy Era, and it was pretty strong. So I thought after the banning of Ruins and Energy there are still most of the good Red cards, why don't I adjust the deck a bit, make it bigger, and replace Ramunap Ruins with Arch of Orasca for reach? So with Phoenix, Glorybringer and Chandra in the Deck it was soon clear that Hazoret had to go, since I would never consistently empty my hand fast enough. That felt kind of weird, because Hazoret is the standalone best card in the red Aggro Deck. But from there I felt more like a control deck with abrades and magma sprays. Still from time to time I have these aggressive starts, and generally applying a lot of pressure, even when in control mode. So I tested the deck from time to time on Main server and in ML-Minis and I liked it, but I did not do too much testing/preparation for the Master, because as I said I don't really like Standard at the moment. Maybe that will change with Dominaria, it looks very nice so far.
