There is a Mythic Championship Qualifier every day at MagicFests. At MagicFest Copenhagen, the Modern MCQ on Saturday drew 72 players. The Top 4 featured two Humans decks, along with Hogaak BridgeVine and U/R Turns. Places 5-8 were occupied by Dredge, Hardened Scales, Affinity, and Burn.

Congratulations to Marcus Ewaldh for taking it down! Two years ago, he wrote an article here on ChannelFireball on his U/R Turns build. Now, his updated version (featuring the combo of Narset and Day’s Undoing) earned him an invite to Mythic Championship Richmond. As he described it, “it’s like a tempo control combo deck, full of value”.
