Brian Liu Takes Grand Prix Richmond 3-9-2014

The Grand Prix in Richmond comes to a close with one of the largest player turnouts in Grand Prix history. The Richmond Grand Prix was host to 4,300 players from all around filling the reserved space in addition to needing more event halls to host players. This was a Modern Format tournament with a slew of different decks finding there way into the top 16 however that spectrum was narrowed in the end with the Top 8 consisting of 4 similar pod style decks. As such was the winning deck of the weekend, Brian Liu’s “Kiki pod” deck played popular combinations of blue/white/red/green cards to seal the win. Noted cards in these “Pod” decks typically include Birds of Paradise, Reveillark, Melira, Sylvak Outcast and of course, Birthing Pod. What differs from Brian Liu’s deck was the addition of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. Liu was the only player in the Top 8 to not play a Melira, Sylvak Outcast in a pod deck and instead use Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. With a few other slight modifications such as not including Abrupt Decay or Reveillark, Brian Liu seems to have made the perfect changes to win the Champion Spot.
