IS SAHEELI DOMINANT?

No. Because it was the first Challenger, many came up with the decks they liked best on Standard or believed to be the best deck. Saheeli was dominant in the field, but appeared poorly in the Top 8. The decks we must need to watch are UR Phoenix and Mono-U Devotion. All participating copies went to the Top 8. Sultai Midrange also appeared with a good percentage of wins. See you tomorrow with more data from the 5-0 Pioneer MTGO tournaments!
