Simon Nielsen and Allen Wu are the champions of Las Vegas!
Modern GP Las Vegas
It was the world against Hogaak in Las Vegas this weekend, and Hogaak won. So, too, did Simon Nielsen, who finished things off this week with a victory in a Hogaak mirror Finals a week after losing in the Finals at Grand Prix Birmingham a week ago!
Nearly 2,000 competitors arrived in Vegas, and for the second week in a row Hogaak dominated. It was the most-played deck on Day 1, and even with the field gunning for it doubled its metagame share from 10 to 20% on Day 2 en route to putting five copies in the Top 8.
The deck has truly left its mark on Modern, and no one has demonstrated more mastery at the archetype than Nielsen. Congrats to the winner of the Modern event at Grand Prix Las Vegas!
Limited GP Main Event
Allen Wu proved to be the master of Modern Horizons Limited, beating down with Red-Green monsters to knock off Will Skippen to earn the trophy and the title of Grand Prix Las Vegas champion! His win capped off an exciting weekend at Magicfest Las Vegas, and follows on the heels of Simon Nielsen's victory in the Modern GP here.
