Who would have thought some Sheep could go so far?

If Pro Tour Magic 2015 taught us anything, it's that they can go all the way. Ivan Floch won the event thanks to a timely pair of Nyx-Fleece Ram in the finals, capping off an exciting Pro Tour weekend and an excellent Top 8.

Pat Cox was the darling of the swiss, using his Brave Naya deck to do work, but it was Floch's White-Blue Planar Cleansing Control that made the finals against Jackson Cunningham's Green-White Aggro deck. It was an excellent match that went the full five games, but thanks to the rams and Archangel of Thune it was Floch who managed to take it down.

It was a great event and I thought the coverage was excellent. I especially enjoyed this piece by Jake Van Lunen. The beauty lies in its simplicity, and it's something we haven't seen before but is great for the game. Really happy that this was included in the coverage.

The whole Pro Tour was great, and you can find the final recap here, as Floch took down an exciting finals to become a Pro Tour champion.

  1. too bad magic games are too boring to watch, certainly in the top 8. Cunningham vs shizuuka was so boring!!! I didn’t watch the other games.

    They need to change that if they want to compete with other twitch streams.

    and they need to close the chat.

    1. I couldn’t disagree more. There’s so much to learn from watching players that skilled pilot these decks, even if you’re experienced with them yourself.
