Godzilla versus Iwamoto

The Sideboard will continue following the results of team Godzilla as long as they are the top leader in the Swiss rounds. The day started at 8:30 AM with a Rochester Draft.

Comments from team Godzilla (During round 8 deck construction):

Mike Long: "My opponent has absolutely no enchantment removal. I have 4 Muzzle, a Dehydration and 2 Seal of Removal."

Bob Maher: "I played the Spiteful Bully for two reasons. First, he is a two mana Mercenary, so I can gate him in and use him as a blocker, then he can kill himself the next upkeep if he needs to. Second, my opponent is playing white/black and doesn't have any ways to do extra damage to my creatures, so I can safely put three damage on my high-toughness creatures like Defender en-Vec, Alabaster Wall and Cho-Arrim Bruiser."

David Williams: "My deck was so good that I cut cards like Cave-In, Kyren Sniper, Rushwood Herbalist, Nesting Worm and Seal of Strength."

David Williams: "In the last booster of this draft, I got the most amazing picks I've ever had from one booster: Flowstone Crusher, Blastoderm and Treetop Bracers. For my deck the Treetop Bracers were actually the most valuable.

Mike Long: "David Williams has a potential 28 amazing cards for his deck."
