Fira Barcelona Gran Via
Troels Munk is your Grand Prix Barcelona Champion!
Grand Prix Barcelona was a captivating tournament, showcasing the deep diversity of the Modern format. While some were concerned about a potential epidemic of Hogaak decks, the metagame showed to be much more evenly spread across the top few archetypes - Hogaak, Eldrazi Tron, Izzet Phoenix, and Humans.
Our Top 8 also showed great diversity - from the new "bogeyman" of the format to the popular Humans; even the old favorites like Jund worked their way through to the top of the tournament!
Speaking of, our finals were truly something to behold. Troels Munk faced off against Alberto Galicia Albert, both of whom were piloting Jund - and what a masterclass it was. There were three close games between these two exemplary players - both of them giving as little ground as possible, showcasing the real power of the midrange behemoth. In the end, it was Troels Munk who was able to Jund 'em out just that little bit more, and was declared our Grand Prix Barcelona Champion!
A very well deserved win, Congratulations Troels Munk!
