Antti Malin is the 2008 Magic the Gathering Worlds Champion!

Finally, after four days of grueling battle of Mtg players from around the world and in all the formats, it has been concluded. Antti Malin's (from Finland) Faeries deck defeated Jamie Parke's (a resident of New York, USA) Five Color Control in the Finals match, three games to one.

Before that though, he had to struggle till the deciding Game 5 with Hannes Kerem's Kithkins in the Semis and also had triumphed over Akira Asahara's Faes in a mirror match in the Quarterfinals.

Here's a few info of Antti Malin's record at Worlds and his Faes decklist:

Standard: 3-3
