My GP Seattle Experience

Overall, modern is a wide-open field. In GP Hartford, Ironworks Combo was the big winner. In GP Sydney, we saw B/R Hollow One as the big winner. We’ve seen Bogles, Humans, and Robots win it all.

I have been a Modern player from the beginning of the format and I have enjoy it over the …
