What Binkabi really played in Madrid

In the end, my fellow Swede, Binkabi, changed his mind about what to play in Madrid.

Binkabi:  This was the deck I ended up playing in Madrid. Zombie Pod felt great until I tested alot of games against delver and concluded it to be a tad to slow.

I went with Jeskai since I have plenty of experience with the deck and asumed that it would be a decent choice against UR Delver and Burn. 

I finished with 5 wins, 1 draw and 2 loses and was eliminated in round 8. I'm pleased with the results, mainly because I had to play alot of strange and unusual decks. Not until round 7 I got to play against something that I had been preparing for, crucshing a UR Delver. 

In round 8 I played against UR Delver again, but this version played around 12 counterspells in the main and having a perfect answer all the time. Not much to do about it! 

I also played the Super Sunday Series, finishing 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 loses. I thought that maybe the players would be slightly worse here, but oh my, I was wrong. Every oneof my opponents told me about results like "last 2 top 8s in the PTQs" or "Well, I top 8 the last 2 Super Sunday Series"... Anyway, I had a blast there to and overall, my weeked was great!
