Grand Prix[edit]

Pro Tour Theros[edit]

At the start of Pro Tour Theros Luis Scott-Vargas, William Jensen, and Ben Stark were inducted into the Hall of Fame. Day one ended with Samuel Black and Paul Rietzl having won all their eight matches. Thirteen players followed at seven wins, including well-known players such as Jon Finkel and Makihito Mihara.[21] After round 15 of the tournament the standings shaped up in a way that guaranteed the best four player to qualify for the top eight, and allowed the players in fifth to eighth place to guarantee qualification for the top eight by drawing intentionally.[22] Consequently the eight players that were at the top of the standings after round 15 were also at the top after round 16, and thus qualified for the top eight.[23] They were Jérémy Dezani, Guillaume Wafo-Tapa, and Pierre Dagen of France, Samuel Black and Paul Rietzl from the United States, Makihito Mihara and Kentarou Yamamoto from Japan, and Kamiel Cornelissen from the Netherlands. In the top eight the French players then only lost to each other. Wafo-Tapa was eliminated by Dagen in the quarter-finals, and in the finals Dezani defeated Dagen to win Pro Tour Theros.[24]
