If there is one format that people shouldn't miss from the Magic Online Championship coverage, it's Modern. By far the most innovation was on display in the decks that this event's players brought for the final four rounds of Swiss.

Check out the breakdown of decks below:

Archetype #
Infect 2
Dredgevine 2
Death's Shadow Aggro 1
Ad Nauseum 1
Jeskai Harbinger 1
Jund 1
Lantern Control 1
Naya Company 1
Naya Zoo 1
Scapeshift 1
Temur Traverse 1

As you can see, outside of Infect and—of all things, Dredgevine—the metagame is wide open, as each player tries to catch the other off guard. Dredgevine was an all-in call from both Oliver Tiu and Magnus Lantto, as they went in with very little preparation on the good word of a mutual friend who recommended the deck. Temur Traverse, piloted by Sam Black, is probably the most unique offering, with a full four copies of Tireless Tracker.
