Tom van de Logt

The letter T!om van de Logt's aggressive, black-red "Machine Head" deck used the good ol' "blow stuff up" method. While creatures like Plague Spitter wiped out his opponents' smaller creatures, more ferocious beasts like Flametongue Kavu aggressively cleared the board of larger threats.

Alex Borteh

The letter A!lex Borteh's monoblue combo deck contained twelve 1-toughness creatures. These helped hold the board until his Static Orb-Opposition combo could lock down his opponents' permanents--clearing the way for a horde of Merfolk to pour through for the victory.

Antoine Ruel

The letter A!ntoine Ruel's blue-black-red control deck survived the pressure in the early game with its almost overwhelming card-drawing capability. And in the end, Nether Spirit kept rising from his graveyard to take down his opponents.

Jan Tomcani

The letter J!an Tomcani's green-red-black "Fires" deck used early mana-producing creatures to play a quick Fires of Yavimaya. Shortly thereafter, Tomcani's hasted big creatures pounded opponents' life totals to dust.
