Alexander Hayne Takes Down Pro Tour Barcelona!
Congratulations to our very own Alexander Hayne for finishing his first Professional year of Magic on such a high note. Not only does he take home the trophy for Pro Tour Barcelona, he gained enough points to win Rookie of the Year and a spot on the Canadian team for the World Cup. Of course, by winning Pro Tour Barcelona, Alex also earns the right to play in the Player’s Championship in August. All of that in one weekend. Oh yeah and he also reached Platinum status…
Congratulations to the rest of Team Mana Deprived. Some of them stayed up all night just to help test Alex’s matchups in the top 8 and the testing ended up being a key factor in Alex’s ultimate victory. The team for Barcelona included:
Alex designed the first version of the deck that took home the trophy. Here it is once again:
Hallelujah! by Alexander Hayne
Here is his deck tech video with none other than BDM:
Just a day before the Pro Tour, Doug Potter filmed the following video of the team at Barcelona, which apparently included the deck they were planning to bring to the Constructed portion of the tournament.
A lot of people actually messaged me and asked me how I could possibly spoil the team’s tech a day before the Pro Tour. By now, they all know it was nothing but a troll, but Alex did intentionally clue everyone in on the fact that he was on Hallelujah if you watch the video again. Some clever foreshadowing, I must say.
Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy.
