We see Thiim running a Merchant Scroll which to be honest I'm not quite sure how I feel about. It usually grabs Ancestral Recall or some sort of counter, but this is not a Paradoxical Outcome deck where we can get one of our main combo pieces.

There's nothing particularly new in the sideboards except for a showing of Dismember. Four life seems like a lot to ask for, but it is more likely two life and in this deck.

I feel like I'm rushing through this week's data, but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of differences to last week. Overall it was a solid showing for Doomsday, but with Hullbreacher and Opposition Agent legal in the next weekend's tournaments, things are going to get interesting.
