Stybs has played Magic the world over, writing and drafting as part of the event coverage team and slinging Commander everywhere his decks will fit.

It's easy to recall the consistently powerful decks in Modern. With the classic take on Splinter Twin making the finals, as well as a semifinals appearance for the venerable Affinity machines, Grand Prix Charlotte could have been the same story on another page.
But it wasn't.
Elves, backed by newcomer Collected Company, took the top prize along with decks that packed Goryo's Vengeance, Ad Nauseam, and more. Beyond the Top 8 there were many more successful approaches to the weekend.  Which of the twenty other decks here will you try in Modern?
