The letter C!ongratulations to Kirk Dalton and his Green-black Rock deck! Dalton was the only player among the 176 at U.S. Nationals to pull off a perfect 7-0 record across the Constructed format. The Rock saw relatively little play across the field, with Tooth and Nail, Red Aggro and White Weenie making up more than 60% of the field.

Joining Kirk among the "undefeateds" in Constructed were Top 8 participants Michael Patnik, Antonino De Rosa, and Neil Reeves, although each of them had draws late on Saturday which kept them from being able to obtain perfect records.

Constructed: 7-0

Constructed: 5-0-2 overall
