Classic Constructed Showdown 11/13/21

1st Place- Michael Wade

Age: 35

Occupation: Communications Infrastructure Specialist for the University of Arkansas 

What Hero did you play today, and why did you choose it?

Oldhim, Grandfather of Eternity- So, the prize support for this was bonkers and was anticipating a lot of Briar. I built the Oldhim deck to beat those and haven’t faced a single one! 

What was the best card in your deck, and why?

Tear Asunder… Because it’s Tear Asunder. It into a Winter’s Wail is a very strong play pattern.

What was the best card out of your sideboard, and why?

My sideboard is actually pretty weak. Probably Remembrance to give me gas against the mirror match or Bravo.

What Hero did you play today, and why did you choose it?

Briar, Warden of Thorns- I’ve liked Briar since I played her in a Pre-Release. Being able to go attack, attack and keep going and have your opponent go “Oh… Ok.” There’s something fun about it.
