Atlanta Kotei: My Love For You Is Like A Truck (3x T16 Crab)

If Lion was the Clan-of-the-Day at the Atlanta Kotei (winning, putting two decks in the T4, and also 9th-10th), then following close behind were the Crab – also putting two decks in the T4, and also picking up 13th place. Second and fourth were Robyn “The Bridesmaid” Pavlakovich and Darrell “Little Crab” Haddock, both running SPC Berserker Superfriends decks (it’s like Empire at War, but with Hida Akeno).

OK, lumping those two decks together like I did with the Lion decks isn’t really fair. That’s quite a lot of differences for two decks that you can lump into “Berserkers + good Unique guys.” Corey Monson’s 5-2 deck (13th place) is completely different, although (of course) still running out of Shattered Peaks Castle:

Look at that – Commanders and Commander-specific Strategies and Followers. It’s a real live Commander deck! Whouda thunk it? Well, if you want to see the throught process, you can check our Corey’s (aka, Mr. AmazingSleep) seven-part article on preparing for the Kotei over on the F5Generation blog.
