Magic Online (MTGO) user Rubberdcuky won the Pioneer Super Qualifier on Wednesday with Lotus Breach.
The second straight Pioneer Super Qualifier was won by Lotus Breach as Rubberdcuky came out on top of a field full of companion decks. Rubberdcuky was the only player in the Top 8 not playing a companion, using the powerful combo deck that was all the talk a few months back to earn the title, defeating jsteed on Lurrus Orzhov Auras in the finals.
Lurrus of the Dream-Den put four decks into the Top 8, two copies of Boros Burn, one Orzhov Auras, and a new Lurrus deck – Abzan Rally. Much like the old Standard deck, Abzan Rally uses Rally the Ancestors and Return to the Ranks in combination with powerful sacrifice creatures and Zulaport Cutthroat to win the game. New additions from Ikoria include a playset of Fiend Artisan and a single copy of Drannith Magistrate.
Yorion Jeskai Fires and Yorion Azorius Devotion also made Top 8 along with Jegantha, the Wellspring’s first appearance in the Pioneer elimination rounds. Jegantha Bant Spirits gets to free roll the big Elemental Elk companion and mitigate flooding, something the Spirits deck was notorious for before the release of Ikoria.
