In Oslo, Jim Herold continued two Grand Prix streaks. For the third consecutive European Grand Prix, a German player won (Kai Budde won in both Barcelona and Vienna). And, for the second time since Grand Prix Kansas City, the winner of a Grand Prix has no previous Pro Tour experience.
Herold played a Blue/Green/White deck in the sealed portion of the
Grand Prix, relying on a Thran Quarry to afford his expensive double-blue
spells such as Confiscate. After drafting a deck with the rest of the
Top 8, he had stayed with Blue/Green.
