Alexander Hayne is your Grand Prix Montreal champion!

 

On Saturday morning, 824 competitors entered the Grand Prix to take their shot at a winner's trophy and a piece of the $50,300 prize pool in Throne of Eldraine Limited. In the end, MPL member and lifetime Canadian Pro Point leader Alexander Hayne was triumphant, taking the fifth GP trophy of his career. "I should have been testing for the Mythic Championship, but I couldn't pass up a hometown GP," he said.

In the Top 8, he drafted a powerful Food deck featuring Feasting Troll King and Gilded Goose. In the quarterfinals, he defeated his buddy and former neighbour Rob Anderson. They started getting good at Magic together 12 years ago, so it was awesome that they made Top 8 together, but Hayne was unstoppable. His next victim in the semifinals was Jacques-Olivier Sauve. And in the finals, where he had turn-one Gilded Goose every single game, he overcame Michael Bergerac's Gingerbrutes that became as Tall as a Beanstalk. 

Overall, it was a great MagicFest weekend, which also featured awesome artists, cosplayers, five PTQ winners, and the new Command Zone. But what stood out the most was Alexander Hayne's mastery, so congratulations again to the champion of Grand Prix Montreal 2019!
