PTQ Ottawa Top 8 Decklists – BNG Standard

Due to the last StarCityGames Open being cancelled, there was a lack of decklists from the new Standard format over the weekend. Fear not as Dave Tellier has provided us with the top 8 decklists from the Ottawa PTQ that took place last Saturday.

Wizard’s Tower held an excellent PTQ and we are happy that Dan Lanthier, a long-time ManaDeprived.com supporter and occasional writer, ended up with the blue envelope. Congrats Dan!

Mono Black Devotion let everyone know that it was still the deck to beat at this tournament with three copies finishing in the top four. However, the deck that everyone at the tourney was raving about turned out to be Charles Trottier’s monstrosity – a deck consisting of mostly two-drops and [card]Immortal Servitude[/card]. Could it be the real deal?
