As we wind down the fetch land promotion and prepare to move into a 110% payout prizing format, we are actually seeing several new decks appear in the metagame. This week, two decks we haven't seen much at our local modern tournaments went undefeated: Scapeshift, piloted by Keane Ngiem and Death & Taxes, piloted by Bruice Liu. Amit Patel, though not securing a fetch land this week, managed to take his R/G Shaman brew to a respectable 3-1 finish. Mono-Black Infect also returns as a top finisher this week. We were missing a few decks again this week from the breakdown. Please help us fill in the blanks by leaving a comment if you have any information!
We only have one or two more weeks worth of fetch lands to prize out (depending on attendance) and will then be moving to a 110% payout format. Each week a modern staple card will be raffled away (such as thoughtseize, splinter twin or spellskite). Top finishers also receive 110% of the entry fees as store credit. For example, at our recent 110% Standard tournament 18 players showed up so top 4 split $100 store credit (18*5*110%) and a thoughtseize was raffled away.
