Stephan Sluis Top 32 Dutch National Championship

On May 26, 2015 by Peter Gross


Hey guys, Stephan Sluis here.
I’ve been out of the game competitively for almost a year and only recently played in YCS Bochum with no experience in the format. Having played Shaddolls at Bochum and going X-3 drop I knew I wasn’t going to play it for nationals. I decided to play Nekroz cause it’s the best deck and I had enough time to practice the deck a bit. My build was pretty standard, only difference with some others might be that I decided to play 3 MST and Nekroz of Decisive Armor. The reason being at Dutch nationals I expected to be facing more decks that aren’t Nekroz. So Decisive armor was huge.
For the side deck decided to play 4 hands over Denko Sekka because I didn’t want to end up in a situation where my opponent would flip mistake in the first turn and I had Denko Sekka with no way to get rid of it. My regret for the side deck was probably that I didn’t play 3rd Mind Crush.

On Saturday during swiss I faced Qli (2-1), Tellarknights (2-0), Nekroz Shadoll? (2-0), Nekroz (2-0), Nekroz (2-0), Lost to Nekroz in time (1-2), Qli (2-0) Thanks to Decisive armor.
Day 2 I faced Infernoids (2-1), Nekroz (0-2) without side cause I had already made top 32.

Top 32 I got completely destroyed by Heroes who opened too godly both games.

It was a great weekend and the deck worked pretty well in my opinion.
Thanks for reading and I hope to see you in Dublin for the European Championship.
