American and Canadian card slingers poured in to the city of Columbus this weekend to test their Modern skills at the Grand Prix. With a wide swath of viable decks in Modern, it was anyone’s guess as to which strategy would come out victorious. Well represented decks included Merfolk, Delver variations, Trap, Hive Mind, Polymorph and more. The Top 8 came down to Orrin Beasley, Aaron Estrin, Lucas Siow, Max Tietze, Jacob Maynard, Chris Piland, Caleb Estrada and Shahar Shenhar. Jacob Maynard was able to command his Robots to victory over Lucas Siow’s RUG Delver and is now your GP Columbus Champion!

Chris Kronenberger punts his way out of top 8 at #gpcol. Hurts me watching people play burn so poorly.— Sam Davis (@samdavisboyhero) July 22, 2012
