Out of 271 qualified players, Gruul Adventures was by far the most played deck, boasting a metagame share of 34.5% — nearly double the next closest deck (Esper Doom Foretold, with 17.1%). Despite these two decks making up a majority of the field, Jaudy took down the event with Rakdos Midrange.
While the Swiss rounds were packed full of mirror matches, the Top 8 was impressively diverse, with seven different decks making the cut. In the quarterfinals, Jaudy made quick work of the only Dimir Rogues player, Franche Tan, who opted to cut the Lurrus of the Dream-Den package from his list. Jaudy then dispatched Jovaras Komža, playing Zendikar Rising Standard’s current boogie-man, Gruul Adventures, in a close 2-1 semifinals match.
Moving on to the finals, Jaudy was matched against Emiliano Saavedra, one of only eight Temur Ramp players in the event. While Saavedra’s list was packed full of powerful top-end spells, including a full four copies of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Genesis Ultimatum, and Shark Typhoon, Jaudy was able to take the match 2-1 on the back of powerful disruption spells, making him the winner of the $5K Kaldheim Championship Qualifier.
