Głogowski Wins Mythic Championship VII

Mythic Championship VII

The last major event of 2019 is in the books. Piotr Głogowski, who finished second to Andrea Mengucci back in March’s Mythic Invitational, won Mythic Championship VII with Jund Sacrifice. The Magic Pro League member did it in style. Having earned a bye into Day Two through MPL play, Głogowski proceeded to win every one of his matches. He never faltered and never had to claw his way back from the Lower Bracket. Instead he used the combination of Cauldron Familiar, Mayhem Devil, Trail of Crumbs, Witch’s Oven, and the help of Korvold, Fae-Cursed King to bury his opponents under card advantage and cat triggers.

Głogowski’s victory comes in a stack Top 8. Seth Manfield went into Mythic Championship VII with a unique take on Simic Flash. He, Brad Nelson, and Javier Dominguez all were on the build and all three made the Top 8. Andrea Mengucci made the elimination rounds with Simic Ramp and Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa was alive on Sunday again with Jeskai Fires. In addition to these Magic Pro League members, Chris Kvartek put a bow on an amazing season (piloting Golgari Adventure) and Challenger Miguel da Cruz Simoes made the most of his invite with Jund Sacrifce.

The finals pitted Nelson against Głogowski. As has been the case so often this Standard season, Nissa, Who Shakes the World and Gilded Goose were key players – only this time they were on opposite sides of the battlefield. In the decisive third game Głogowski assembled his engine and managed to keep two copies of Nissa from entering the battlefield. On the penultimate turn, Nelson faced defeat and let the rope burn, prompting a chuckle from his opponent. And with that, Głogowski became a Mythic Champion.
