After having presented twelve decks of the month in the past year, I have asked you to pick the Deck of the Year 2009. 299 votes have been cast in this poll. Please observe, that the initial choice of these decks were driven not by any wanna-be-objective-here motivation, but by my (likely flawed) preferences for originality of deck design, for audacity to play such a deck in a tournament environment or for the skill to pilot such a crappy deck to the tournament win (or final).
So the winner for the Deck of Year 2009 is Martin Major (HUN) with his “Broken Brujah” deck. Congratulations to Martin for building and winning with this deck. Unfortunately for Martin, there is no actual prize support for this “award” other than your five minutes of fame. Here are decks that made it the top three of the list:
- Broken Brujah by Martin Major (HUN) — a bruise & bleed deck based on the G4/5 Brujah and the “Alastor” vote.
- Anson, Volker & Ashurs Tablet by Marcin Watras (POL) — a very toolboxy Prince decks with Ashurs Tablets as recursion engine.
- Girls will find inner peace by Adam Esbjörnsson (SWE) — Inner Circle feat. Cybele bleed deck with a multitude of master cards.
