Grand Prix Trial Winning Decklists

Posted in Event Coverage on October 31, 2015

The Magic community in Latin America might not be as large as North America and Europe, but they certainly aren't any less enthusiastic! Yesterday, a whopping SIXTEEN Modern Grand Prix Trials took place, granting each winner 2 Round Byes in today's main event.

With the second wave of Modern Regional Pro Tour Qualifiers taking place next weekend (the first wave is happening now!), all eyes will be on the Modern metagame that will be taking shape in Porto Alegre.

Until Day 1 is over (where we'll be posting 9-0 decklists, as usual) and until the Top 8 is born, these sixteen decklists should whet your appetite! Because there're so many lists, here's a quick breakdown in a nutshell. Ten archetypes, sixteen Modern decklists, one mysterious metagame.
