Letting go of his trusty Abdul Control that won him two local Open Qualifier tournaments, and harnessing instead the explosive power of the Knights of the Round Table and the Regalia, our very own Jonathan deJoseph won the 2015 Singapore Open and secured his spot at the World Championships in Japan this September!
Jonathan is the brains behind the deck that Paxi and I used to take the top spots at the Philippine Nationals. In Singapore, he brought a better version of his creation, which he took to a total of 18 wins and only 3 losses in games throughout the day.

The biggest changes in Jonathan’s version was putting all eight Regalia into his main deck, relocating Mordred to the sideboard, and cutting Tristan off for Dream of Juliet. The stone count is properly fixed as well, resulting in a more streamlined deck.
