    Nice job!

    Now, the next time you're in a PTQ finals, you just need to win it instead of losing. :D

    If we were still doing those award things, Modus would be "most likely to win the pro tour."

    1 Mountain
    1 Plains
    3 Sacred Foundry

    2 Journey to Nowhere
    2 Kataki, War's Wage
    3 Mogg Fanatic
    2 Pithing Needle
    2 Wheel of Sun and Moon
    15 sideboard cards



    You can sample hand his deck out here. He netted 4 Pro Points for his finish.

    How he did:

    Round 1: Lost 0-2 to Tsuyoshi Ikeda (PT: Austin Runner Up and 2008 Worlds 3rd place)
    Round 2: Won 2-0 to Andre Mueller (PT: Valencia Runner Up)
    Round 3: Draw 1-1 to Hiroki Takeda
    Round 4: Lost 1-2 to Jesse Savage
    Round 5: Won 2-0 to Rocky Gonzalez
    Round 6: Won 2-1 to James Buckingham
    Round 7: Won 2-1 to Pasqual Vierin
    Round 8: Won 2-1 to Gerard Fabiano

    Makes Day 2 at 5-2-1

    Round 9: Won 2-0 to Axel Martinez
    Round 10: Won 2-1 to Christopher Lapp
    Round 11: Lost 0-2 to Robert Dougherty (Multiple PT Top 8's, Member of Team Your Move Games, Pro Tour HOF Class of 2006)
    Round 12: Won 2-1 to Jonathan Pearlman
    Round 13: Lost 1-2 to Yuutarou Hirashima
    Round 14: Lost 1-2 to Chikara Nakajima (Constant PT Top 8 contender and loser in the "Pepsi Shiso" draft)
    Round 15: Lost 1-2 to Lucas Siow
    Round 16: Drew 0-0-1 to Conley Woods (PT Honohulu '09 4th place)

    Finished Pro Tour Austin 8-6-2

    I recognized a few of the names without notes, but couldn't recall off the top of my head.

    Personally, I would've played Conley Woods if I had the chance. That guy makes crazy decks.

    MP is Peter Florijn, not Johan Van der Beek. Haven't you read his articles?
  11. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    My bad. I thought he was Johan, considering this quote: and one actually qualified, Johan van der Beek." I assumed that, since MP DID qualify for Austin, this was him.

    But, you're right. Considering that I have read his articles, I should've known. I'll just do research again.

    MP REALLY finished 190th and received 3 Pro Tour Points

    How he did:

    Round 1: Won 2-0 vs. David Glore
    Round 2: Won 2-0 vs. Matt Grandgeorge
    Round 3: Lost 0-2 vs. Shuuhei Nakamura (Multiple PT Top 8's, reigning Pro Tour Player of the Year)
    Round 4: Won 2-1 vs. Mark Dictus
    Round 5: Lost 0-2 vs. Paul Heynen
    Round 6: Lost 1-2 vs. Carlos Moral
    Round 7: Won 2-0 vs. Hajime Fujii
    Round 8: Lost 2-1 vs. Jeremy Polonia

    Fails to make Day 2.

    The Extended deck-lists did not list a Peter Florijn, but it did list a Peter Florian (a name that was not in the standings) so I'm assuming it's a typo. Here's his assumed decklist

    3 Breeding Pool
    3 Island
    4 Misty Rainforest
    4 Scalding Tarn
    3 Verdant Catacombs
    3 Watery Grave
    20 lands


    3 Bloodghast
    4 Drowned Rusalka
    1 Flame-Kin Zealot
    4 Golgari Grave-Troll
    4 Hedron Crab
    1 Iona, Shield of Emeria
    4 Narcomoeba
    1 Sphinx of Lost Truths
    4 Stinkweed Imp
    26 creatures 4 Bridge from Below
    3 Dread Return
    4 Ideas Unbound
    3 Life from the Loam
    14 other spells


    Sideboard

    2 Darkblast
    4 Echoing Truth
    4 Nix
    2 Thoughtseize
    3 Tombstalker
    15 sideboard cards


    And you can sample his hand here.


    Let's hope I'm right this time
