Pimpvitational player profiles, part 2

Kingvitational 1 has been confirmed for the 8th of March! It may very well be the last 93/94 tournament of the season, so scrape a deck together, get to Varberg, and try to win Kingen's Relic Barrier while drinking Fireball. The next season will as usually start at the world championships (at n00bcon). But first, let's wrap up the player profiles for last season's Pimpvitational.

The eventual winner of Pimpvitational was Joakim "Jockeman" Almelund, who completely crushed the field with his control deck, winning every match he played during the tournament.

Name: Olof “Elof” Gottfridsson
Previous T8s: The last five tournaments (1st Warcon '12, 1st BSK '12, 1st n00bcon '13, 5-8th Kingvitational 0.5, 5-8th BSK '13)
Previous accomplishments in Magic: None and a few. Scandinavian Master Legacy, World Champion 93/94 2013, top64 both Legacy GPs I've played (Madrid, Amsterdam), Eternalkungen 2009.
Random skills: Have the most posts of any user at SvenskaMagic. Created Fyllebordet 2002 which became a forum for Sweden's old school players, and eventually led me to join Team 0-2 Drop.
Which card should be restricted: Perhaps Mishra's Factory, that could be interesting!
Which card should be unrestricted: Maybe Power Artifact, it's pretty hard to get the combo going.
Which card from later expansions would you most like in 93/94: Ice Age painlands or other mana fixing would have a big impact on the format, and are desired by many players.
Deck: Pefken
Elof's 3rd place deck

Name: Hjalmar “Honka” Backlund
Previous T8s: Uh. n00bcon 2011, WG Eternal Weekend 2012.
Unexpected skills: Skin banjo and nose flute. (TN: He is also surpringly good at making perler beads)
Which card should be restricted: Island
Which card from later expansions would you most like in 93/94: Hymn to Tourach
Anecdote from 12/13 season: DeathRap mixtape at BSK 2012 with GaJol.
Deck: A piece of crap. Crap de la crap. (TN: Honka borrowed my Project M deck and was 0-6 at the time of writing this. The deck is not crap, it's awesome. It even had a maindeck Thrull Champion.)
Honka's 8th place deck


Name: Viktor “Oldschool” Peterson
Previous T8s: A few... Including a win at n00bcon 2011
Previous accomplishments in Magic: Probably the only legacy player who continuously played with 16 Arabian Nights creatures in the deck. Flashback... Turn 1: Beta Tropical, Lotus Petal, Beta Ritual, Juzam, go! The kid on the other side of the table have to read Juzam, and after a few moments he wonders “Why do you play with such a crappy card?”. The guy next to us burst out in an uncontrollable, loud and very happy laughter... and that’s how I met both Robert Schram and MG.
Unexpected skills: Professional golf player
Which card should be restricted: None
Which card should be unrestricted: Would like to say Fork, but I guess red+blue is already good enough.
Which card from later expansions would you most like in 93/94: The one and only, Ishan's Shade!
Anecdote from 12/13 season: White Weenie without power IS power!
Deck: The Dragon
Oldschool's 6th place deck.
Name: Joakim "Jockeman" Almelund
Previous T8s: Every n00bcon (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013)
Previous accomplishments in Magic: Never won a PTQ, never won a Giant Shark.
Unexpected skills: Awesome at sport
Which card should be restricted: None
Which card should be unrestricted: Mana Drain. I miss my counters.
Which card from later expansions would you most like in 93/94: Force of Will
Anecdote from 12/13 season: 3-0 drop at BSK
Deck: The Deck with wincons
Jocke's 1st place deck. Undefeated with 7-0 in the swiss, and a win in the finals.
