Pascal Maynard opens Foil Tarmogoyf in Top 8 GP Vegas
This weekend was dubbed the one to make Magic History with three simultaneous Modern Masters 2015 Grand Prixs being held across the globe in Utrecht, Chiba and Las Vegas. Pascal Maynard made his piece of Magic history this weekend when he opened a FOIL TARMOGOYF in the Top 8 Draft of GP Vegas… and took it!
At that time he was in a RW agro deck, with double strikers and equipment. But when he saw those $300 staring back at him from the front of that pack, he couldn’t say no.
I appreciate some of the criticism that has been levelled at him, but ultimately I respect his decision and don’t see it as the misplay that he retrospectively claims it to be.
With this video I looked to immortalise that moment where he had to choose between the premium removal spell for his deck, and possibly the most iconic and sought after card in Modern Magic.
Community Question: Would you pick a Foil Tarmogoyf in a top8 draft at a GP, even if it is not the best card in the pack for your deck? If so then why?
