The Manaleak Tri-Format Team Constructed Challenge (Standard, Modern, & Legacy) Top 4 Decklists

20 teams of budding Magic players gathered at Manaleak Birmingham on Sunday to take part in what we believe to be the first event of its kind in the country. Ahead of the impending 25th anniversary Pro Tour in 2018, the format was Team Constructed, combining all of Standard, Modern and Legacy together in one sweet mix.

Finishing top of the pack was Team Upheaval, going undefeated in the Swiss rounds and crushing the Top 4 to win the whole thing! Not to mention, in our Top 4, all 4 formats sported 4 DIFFERENT archetypes, showing how healthy the game of Magic really is right now!
