Dishonorable 17th place mention: Myself
I think the most interesting dynamic of this tournament was the relative positioning of Ravager Shops, Outcome, and Mentor. Walking Ballista has given Ravager Shops a significant advantage over Mentor. However, if Shops pushes too hard in this direction they can fall prey to a traditionally strong matchup, combo. Shops may have spheres, but Outcome has an expansive manabase and Hurkyl's (which notably does not work against Stony Silence). Although we can always complain about sample sizes, this is supported by the archetype vs. archetype winrate percentages.
Note: Other includes 2 Leovold BUG Fish decks, 1 Null Rod Merfolk deck, and 1 goblins deck. The two BUG Fish players did fairly well at this P9. Big Blue was completely encompassed by Outcome (both Paradoxical Mentor and Paradoxical Storm). Paradoxical Oath was listed separately under Oath. If you want to play around with the data on various combinations of tags, save a copy of googledoc to your account and change the Include/Exclude tags fields (B24-B25).
EDIT: Updated a couple tags based on the published decklists. Will update screenshots when I get home.
