Pro Tour Theros featured a very experienced top eight, with Hall of Famer and now six-time Sunday competitor Kamiel Cornelissen, as well as Makihito Mihara, Guillaume Wafo-Tapa, and Paul Rietzl, all of them class of 2014 Hall of Fame hopefuls; this was also Mihara's second straight top eight, having already finished third at Pro Tour Dragon's Maze. Additionally, Sam Black and Kentaro Yamamoto both made their second final day appearance. Yamamoto brought an innovative Mono-Black Devotion deck featuring Pack Rat; an evolution of this deck would eventually emerge as the top deck in the format, but he lost 3–1 to Black in the quarterfinals. However, it was the two less experienced players, friends and teammates Jérémy Dezani and Pierre Dagen, who ended up facing each other in the final. Dezani beat Dagen 3–1, and took the Pro Tour title.
Chris Pikula, after having barely missed being inducted into the Hall of Fame as a member of the 2013 class, received an invitation to Pro Tour Theros. He ended up finishing 11–5, but only the top 25 would have earned 10 Pro Points and an invitation to the next Pro Tour - only one player on 11-5 would make it in on tiebreaks (Pikula finished 33rd).
