Wow. So these 4,300 players have been winnowed down greatly—to 443 to be exact. It was a long haul, broken into three separate flights, even into separate halls, but the first day of Grand Prix Richmond is in the books! Tomorrow the groups combine and the best of the best will converge for six more rounds of Modern goodness before cutting to the Top 8.

Sitting atop the standings are Ben Friedman, Andrew Calderon, Noah Walker, Zach Jesse, Jonathon Chappell, Patrick Dickmann, Daryl Ayers, Ian Ayal, Mario Martinez, Jeff Folinus, and William Aitken. They are all undefeated (and true undefeated, none of that 8-0-1 horse-hockey).

Modern has shown us that a variety of archetypes are viable—from Melira Pod to Scapeshift to 4c Gifts to Battle of Wits (ok, fine, the Battle of Wits decks didn't do very well)—but which ones truly deserve to be top of the heap? We'll find out tomorrow, and quite early because we'll be springing ahead at 2 am.

Come back bright and early tomorrow! The stream starts at 9 a.m. onwww.twitch.tv/scglive.

See you tomorrow!
