Top 10 Played cards - Main Board

Top 5 Played Sideboard Cards


Dredge took the tournament down! Congrats to Ryan Lello on an amazing finish. Honestly it was awesome to have Dredge win the tournament after the banning of Faithless Looting. Ryan placed his faith in Dredge and boy did it pay off. However not all the games could have been easy. Multiple players still played some main board graveyard hate and there were a lot of copies of Surgical Extraction and Rest in Peace running around in the sideboards.  

Congratulations to Ryan Lello! He is crowned the very first Open Series Champion for Modern
