Manaleak.com’s LAST EVER MTG GPT Top 8 Modern Decklists

This past weekend marked the end of the GPT program here at Manaleak Birmingham, as we held our last ever trial! The program may be discontinued, but we will of course continue to bring you high quality Magic: the Gathering events for as long as we possibly can!

The field was very diverse and the top 8 featured 8 different decks! The eventual winner was Gavin Tate, sporting a very classic build of R/G Tron, beating the elephant in the room ([c]Death’s Shadow[/c]) in the final!

Check out our next big Modern event in just over a month’s time! We’ll be hosting Team Unified Modern in June! Maybe one of the decks below can fit into your team strategy!
