The fans have spoken and Kenji’s “Dear Diary” deck, built around Tamiyo’s Journal, was the big winner. His combination of sweet synergy, enough power to win his match, and a heaping helping of showmanship (declining to attack with Tireless Tracker in order to “go off” and win with Ghirapur Aether Grid and clues) was rewarded with a lot of A+ votes.
Marshall’s valiant attempt at making Hedron Alignment work took second place points, which was enough to keep him in first place in the overall season standings.
Paul’s edge over Aaron was tiny – we had to go to the 3rd decimal point of weighted grades to sort out 3rd place, but it did go to Paul and you’d have to think his sideboard tech of including everyone’s card from the opening credits, plus his decision to kill the Professor with Prof’s own card (Malevolent Whispers) probably made the difference.
It was a great week overall, with a lot of creative decks, and this was by far the highest set of grades so far this season. You can see all this week’s decklists here.
