I didn't see one HE deck, in fact the only thing I went up against were DE decks.
Here is a link to my tournament report on our meetup site.
I got 6th with my High Elf deck, which i was playing for fun (I was there for Game of Thrones). That is Top 8 in all GenCon's so far! My DE deck is probably more consistent, but not near as fun as HE. Basically a speed deck with a lot of control as well. I haven't really played since last years GenCon (Worlds at that point) when I got top 8. Got a pretty cool playmat that actually had a HE picture on it!
I am horrible with card names - the deck uses a lot of indirect damage (didn't think I would see a ton of Dwarf) with the 6/4 dragon (many times out 2nd turn) and the 3/3 guy with the tokens. HE has good control as well with the 1 cost spell that turns units into developments, and then I play 6X return to hand events as well (Banish and the Nuetral one). I misread/misunderstood the 1 cost tactic that lets you attack two different zones. I thought I then could attack one zone with my army, and then another - but it only let's you split your army on the same attack (which really sucks).
1st game I won 2-0 vs. a Dark Elf deck discard deck. I got the dragon out 2nd turn both times, I think with the location in both games as well. He couldn't keep units out, and both games went pretty fast. He did, however, get 3rd in aGoT so that was great for him.
2nd game my deck totally just blew up on me and I lost to a very similar Dark Elf deck discard deck from the one I beat handily. Both games I took a mulligan and in those 4 hands I never got a 2-cost location to start. I didn't draw an Innovation or the HE +1 resourse in any of the 4 either.
Last game was vs. a very good infinate combo deck, Empire I believe. I won 2-0, in both games I got our really fast, controlled his units and won easily. We played again for fun and he got the combo off and crushed me.
Overall pretty fun!
