Magic: the Gathering
Yorion, Sky Nomad, a full control deck with several counters and removals. Secondly, we had a Temur Ramp showing that this archetype has not yet become obsolete.
Oath of Nissawas essential for the return of the deck to the top. It's good positioning in the meta is thanks to
Karn, The Great Creatorthat brings the versatility that the deck needs in each match, so much so that the deck did good on this championship, even reaching finals against a Lotus Combo.
Crippling Chill, that are more desired in the cemetery. Second, we had a four colors
Omnath, Locus of Creationshowing that the famous and controversial elemental found his home in the Pioneer without being an oppressive deck in the format.
Chalice of the Voidand
Force of Negation. Another highlight is the deck that occupied the 9th place: Elementals, deck that abuses the skill of
Thunderkin Awakenerreturning elementals from the graveyard, especially the
Puresteel Paladinto equip them for free including
Colossus Hammerto give +10/+10 paying only 1 mana and doing well against the four colors Uro deck that has been getting more and more famous in the format too . Another highlight is the Landless Belcher that was in 4th, this combo is different from the combo that got top 8 on Saturday. This one only needs to reach 7 mana, cast a
Goblin Charbelcherand activate it revealing his entire deck. In this analysis of Saturday and Sunday we can see that Modern is still open to new deck ideas even though traditional decks still work.
Oko, Thief of Crowns,
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, but in the midst of it all who got the champion position was the famous Death & Taxes with its disruptive strategy. Highlights to the UW Urza that appeared with the combo
Lion's Eye Diamond, to generate infinite mana.
Stifleand 3 of
Not of This Worldto better protect it's
Dark Depths. On second, we had an Oko Delver Temur, that is always present in the Challenges. Highlights here for the 8th place, a Death and Taxes using
Yorion, Sky Nomadas a companion. Despite the great dominance of decks using
Oko, Thief of Crownsthe legacy meta is adapting well to it with several innovative lists with expressive results.
Fall from Favor. The champion was a Bogles with a traditional list without adding new cards in a final against Mardu Monarch, which has been using more
Spare Suppliesand less
Golden Egg. Tron also remained at the top even without using any of the new cards. Note that in the top 32 we had the dominant presence of Bogles (5 copies) and Skred (5 copies).
Fiery Cannonade. Overall, there was still no major impact of the Commander Legends cards on the meta with the exception of
Fall from favorwhich will be staple on Ux decks. In this jungle, the champion was a traditional Tron, in a finals against a Dimir Faeries.
