Quote from gkourou »Sorry for the double post! I asked Corbin Hosler(me and a couple of friends) to publish all Day 2 decklists, and he did deliver!
Just freaking WOW! https://www.channelfireball.com/grand-prix-toronto-day-2-deck-lists/
PS: Twitter is a strong tool! Just 3 or 4 of us can ask for anything, and gentle people like Corbin do deliver! I kindly ask from you to regularly tweet Wizards to publish all Day 2 decklists from now on!
Here is the tweet as well: https://twitter.com/Chosler88/status/1094890812633161728
This is truly awesome. One could derive some valuable and very comprehensive MWP data from this data dump. I'm not going to do so myself due to lack of time and the likelihood that someone else does it; there's no reason to duplicate work that should have an identical end product. That said, I might compare final deck records to number of byes, which is a project I imagine other people won't gravitate towards.
Izzet Phoenix continues to cement itself as the reigning Modern deck, with GDS as a close second. Both of these decks are proactive, play a crap ton of cantrips and consistency effects, and have a rare and welcoming combination of a relatively low skill floor and a very high skill ceiling. I expect many pros and grinders will gravitate towards these decks, especially Phoenix which has an even lower floor than GDS (if for no other reason than it's less punishing if you misuse your resources, i.e. life). These are the kinds of high consistency decks that both Modern regulars and Modern occasionals will love.
