Ivory Edition Decklists #5

Another week, another set of decklists from Kotei season. As usual, we’re skipping the first- and second-place decklists since AEG itself is collecting and posting those. And also as usual, make sure to click-through the links (usually) see more than the decklists, especially commentary by the player on how to play the deck and how their tournament matches went.

Decklists this week come from Crab, Crane, Dragon, Lion, Mantis, Phoenix, and Scorpion – almost a full set.
