Red-Green Tron at GP Omaha


It seems like the World Championship was just yesterday but Pro Tour Fate Reforged in Washington, DC, is already next week.

The format is Khans of Tarkir/Fate Reforged Booster Draft and Modern.

Last year's winner was Shaun McLaren with his Jeskai control deck. Who will take the trophy this year?

This week, I would like to introduce some Top 8 decks from Grand Prix Omaha, the Modern tournament prior to the Pro Tour.

First off, Andrew Elenbogen's Red-Green Tron.

Once Mine, Power Plant, and Tower are in play, the power is yours. Usually, this starts with something like Karn Liberated destroying lands.

If your opponent begins flooding the board, All Is Dust comes in handy. Although not possible on your third turn, Oblivion Stone is another choice.

The deck finishes off with utilizing its overflowing mana to call Emrakul, the Aeons Torn from the Eye of Ugin.

Urza Tron has always been around, since it begins produce seven mana on turn three with green cards like Sylvan Scrying and Ancient Stirrings played via Chromatic Star.

Relic of Progenitus is a third cheap artifact that doubles as a cantrip. It matched well with the field full of Treasure Cruises at the time. Mainboard Pyroclasm clearly illustrates what matchups the deck was prepared for.

Now might be the time to switch to Firespout for potential Wild Nacatls.
