Manaleak.com Birmingham SCG Modern IQ April 2018 Top 8 Decklists!

GP Champion Ben Jones (to give him his official title) ran back the same Death’s Shadow deck that he used at GP Madrid to crush our SCG IQ! Ben is on a roll, taking down event after event with the same deck. I think it’s safe to say he’s one of the most dangerous Modern players currently playing in the UK. May we wish the very best of luck to Ben at the Invitational, and at the Pro Tour!

Here are the decklists for the Manaleak Birmingham 2018 Modern SCG IQ top 8 decks, enjoy!
