2001 Junior Super Series Coverage

The Junior Super Series Championship

The 2001 Junior World Championships are over, and when the dust settled, Ben Ashkar of Minnesota carried his Fires deck all the way to a $20,000 scholarship. He beat Ralph Trapas's Merfolk-Opposition deck 2-0, thanks in part to his Urza's Rages and sideboarded Artifact Mutations. Playing on the stage in front of cameras in the finals was a new experience for these two young players, and judging by their performance this weekend, it may not be the last time they play on camera for large sums of money.
