Daisuke Nakamichi has become the MagicFest Chiba 2019 Champion!
Daisuke Nakamichi has become the MagicFest Chiba 2019 Champion! With Vivien, Arkbow Ranger and an Agent of Treachery at their side, Nakamichi effortlessly battled their way through the Top 8, not dropping a single game along the way.
Nakamichi first bested Yuya Hosokawa's Blue-Black, splash White deck, then Raoul Zimmermann's White-Black deck, before facing Kazushige Suzuki in the finals for a Blue-Green mirror match.
Suzuki's route to the finals was no less dominating than Nakamichi's, beating Keita Kawasaki's White-Green deck 2-0, and then Masahide Ishikawa's Red-Green deck 2-0 as well. And while Suzuki could be disappointed with how the finals played out for them, both Suzuki and Nakamichi finished ahead of over 2,300 other players who fronted up in Chiba this weekend to see if they had what it took to take home the trophy (and a year's supply of instant noodles, of all things!)
Blue stood head and shoulders above the other colours in Magic Core Set 2020 Limited this weekend. Five of the Top 8 drafted it, including the two finalists, and all 8 of the Day 1 Undefeated Deck Lists each had at least 7 Islands each. If you're planning to play any MTGM20 any time soon, bring an umbrella, it's gonna get wet out there!
Congratulations again to Daisuke Nakamichi, the MagicFest Chiba 2019 Champion!
