I'm curious how many showed up in total all weekend.
Making top 8 as the only UG fish deck that made day two really helps AND hurt its cause. It's another top 8 for the deck, but no one else made it to the second day.

Actually, E-Tron was a Tier 1.5 deck until people figured out to incorporate Walking Ballista (it was released weeks before it made it's way into the deck.) It made Top 4 at GPT Brisbane and was reasonably frequently a 5-0 deck on MTGO. Even after people realized Ballista was good, it was another month+ before it made it to an automatic 4-of, with very heated discussion of 2 vs. 4.
The point being, it takes a little time for a solid shell to develop, if one can develop and I don't why you seem invested in seeing UG fail.
Also, Jeremy Bertarioni is (was?) 11-3 with UG Merfolk in a tournament where 5-color humans started out 12-0. How many people would have said that deck was a bad decision 4 weeks ago? The only real changes are the Pirate and Unclaimed Territory. And who would have guessed that it wouldn't play Collected Company or any non-creature spells aside from Aether Vial?
12-3 and looking at Top 8 if his tie-breakers hold.
