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.

Modern is a format of flux. The decks at the top of the metagame food chain shift and change as the answers do, and new cards are introduced to nudge (or knock) the status quo around.

Grand Prix Charlotte's Modern format Grand Prix Trial winning lists is a veritable bonanza of archetypes and ideas. From new additions from Fate Reforged and Dragons of Tarkir, such as Monastery Siege and Kolaghan's Command as tools and Tasigur, the Golden Fang and Collected Company as engines, it's clear the format is as open as your ability to test and plan with the deck of your choice.

Here is a sampling of what was winning going into the Saturday mass melee. Which cards below surprise you the most?
