This was the biggest weekend for Modern in quite some time. Today we will analyze and then combine the results of Barcelona's Mythic Championship and Grand Prix along with the SCG Open in Columbus. This will give us a fat sample size of 52 decklists to sink our teeth into. Let's not waste any time.
Leyline of the Void was the most played card at the event but Hogvine was still the best archetype. Today we will look at the Day 2 metagame, the top-performers metagame, and finally the specific winrates for the most played archetypes. This will be our most detailed Event Spotlight to date, so get settled in.
These are the decks that have been tested and settled on by the best players in the game for the Mythic Championship in Barcelona. Today we will break down the results and try to understand how the Bridge from Below ban could be so ineffectual.
I was not thrilled with the outcome as Scapeshift decks took up half of the Top 16 spots. However, I can always find something to love among the decklists. Today we are breaking down the hottest pieces of technology that the players utilized in their Top 8 runs.
I was very pleased to see the diversity at SCG Worcester but much of that appears to be gone in Denver. Among these homogenized results we see Mono-Blue, Mono-Red, and Elementals all fall by the way side. Let's try to make sense of Grand Prix Denver.
An archetype that I always seem to fall back into is Scapeshift. Aggro Shift is the intersection of two of my favorite archetypes in Modern. The deck is capable of incredibly fast aggro kills while also having a very viable Valakut Plan B. It is not a new idea, but the printing of Wrenn and Six has breathed new life into this old archetype.
Starting today we will be taking a look at every card on the Modern banlist. We will take a look at when/why the card was banned and the possibility that it could be unbanned in the future. Today we will look at the artifact lands, Birthing Pod, Blazing Shoal, Bridge From Below, and Chrome Mox.
This was the first large Standard event to feature Magic 2020 and the London mulligan. These results were a wild ride with old archetypes getting new toys and some showing up for the first time. Today we will cover the best pieces of Magic 2020 technology that were featured in the Top 8 of SCG Worcester.
Magic 2020 is now legal and the race to rotation is on. As is typical for a core set it did not reinvent the format; core sets provide a skeleton for the coming Standard to be built upon. Our first peek at this updated Standard was SCG Worcester and today we are breaking down the Top 32 decklists.
The recent banning of Bridge from Below left a lot of questions about the viability of the deck. It was a big loss but Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis is still good enough to see Modern play. Magic Online player, techninja701, has already managed a 5-0 league and a 6-2 finish in the Modern Challenge with a Bridgeless version of the deck.
