At Magic Weekend Paris, Brad Nelson from the United States and World Champion Guillaume Matignon from France took part in an epic showdown to determine who would be winner of the 2010 Magic: the Gathering Player of the Year Race.
More than just a hefty jackpot of cash was on the line for both Brad Nelson and Guillaume Matignon – the honor and bragging rights of being the 2010 Magic: the Gathering Player of the Year winner is a title that is priceless.
Game one was in Guillaume Matignon’s favor, thanks to a Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas.
Game two went to Nelson.
In “Super Sealed” both Nelson and Matignon received 6 Booster Packs of Scars of Mirrodin and Mirrodin Besieged. While both players ended up playing infect based strategies, Brad Nelson’s Carnifex Demon and Contagion Clasp would ultimately give him the edge needed to steal not one, but two more victories.
Guillaume Matignon was able to pull out a win in game five.
Jace, Gidon, and Elspeth were all on Brad Nelson’s side of the battlefield during game six, however Guillaume Matignon wouldn’t go down without a fight. In the end Brad Nelson would still win the round though, with final standings 4-2.
Congratulations to Brad Nelson, winner of the 2010 Magic: the Gathering Player of the Year Race!
