GP Brisbane Vintage Side Event Top 8 Decklists

Courtesy of our friend Joshua Butler (@VintageFamilar) we bring you the Top 8 decklists and wrap-up from the GP Brisbane Vintage Side Event (sanctioned!).

“GP Brisbane was a blast and it would not have been complete without a touch of Sanctioned Vintage. In the end, we had 25 brave souls, powered up and ready to battle make their way into the hall to find out who would remain standing in the end. Five very interesting rounds ensued with what could have been a feature match, both due to the calibre of players and the decks involved. Overall this event was great and we had a heap of people watching from the sidelines.

At the end of the Swiss, it was the BUG Fish deck (BUG Fish won the previous Australian Vintage event) who would be on the play for the entire top 8. Unfortunately for our BUG player, he fell in the Semi’s to our eventual second place player. At the end of the day it was Robert Bartlet, running BC Stax who reigned supreme over the other 24 players taking home. Robert was also notable as the only player running Workshops in this event. Robert left the venue with a foil Rare/Mythic Theros Sheet.”

During the coverage of Pro Tour Return to Ravnica this weekend, Mark Rosewater and company dropped a bomb on the audience.
