Grand Prix Trial Winners

Posted in Event Coverage on February 21, 2015

It's been a tradition since time immemorial—getting no sleep the night before a Grand Prix playing in Grand Prix Trials. Players will grind and grind late into the night, not only to get the byes, but also get some last-minute testing in with the deck. There were 24 players who earned some extra sleep coming into the morning. Three of those players were Jeff Thompson, Roy Yang, Kole MacDonald, who played Sealed. The rest were Modern, that will help shape what people will see in the later rounds today.

Below are all the decklists. There's a lot of Splinter Twin, which is to be expected after Pro Tour Fate Reforged, but there's a couple surprises to be found. I would suggest looking at Ryan Powell's Four-Color Nykthos. Though the numbers are a touch wonky, as two players split in the finals, here's the quick archetype breakdown:

5 Splinter Twin
3 Affinity
2 Infect
2 Abzan
Merfolk
TarmoTwin
Wilt-Leaf Abzan
Red-Green Tron
Burn
Domain Zoo
Hexproof
White-Blue Control
Four-Color Nykthos
Scapeshift

Enjoy the lists.
