All I played was mono air... SoFr OP not just strong.

Spoiler for deck and its variants:
My deck started out like this.
Hover over cards for details, click for permalink
Deck import code : [Select]

After the first game I replaced a pillar for a third fog shield. At some point I added another Owl's Eye somehow. Half way through the tournament I changed the deck to this which is what I played the rest of the tournament.
