Luis Salvatto burst onto the competitive scene after becoming the first Argentinian to win a Pro Tour when he locked one opponent after another out of the game with Lantern Control at PT Bilbao in 2018. He capped off an insane year by becoming the 2018 Player of the Year after beating fellow MPL pro and all-time great Seth Manfield in a thrilling playoff at Pro Tour Guilds of Ravnica.
On his way to headlining the first batch of Mythic Pro League players, Salvatto has earned two PT top 8s including his win, as well as seven Grand Prix top 8s, with two titles to his name.
He hasn’t been seen much online outside of GP and PT feature matches, but the MPL’s structure should mean that fans of the game will see more of his tight technical play and mastery of different formats in 2019.
