Note: we don't have complete records of the decklists from 1995. Here's what we were able to piece together from various sources, including a post on Usenet from Henry Stern

Still wondering what was in everyone's deck? Well, we've got a little game for you. Back in 1996, when the Pro Tour was just beginning, there were a variety of ways to get invited. For the first one, players called a 1-900 number. For the second, one of the ways was a puzzle in The Duelist where readers were challenged to match up sideboards with 1995 Worlds Top 8 players. Give it a try, but keep in mind that you're about twelve years too late to qualify for the Pro Tour this way.

And here are the three decks we're sure of!
