Top 8 Decks: Modern PPTQ @ Patriot Games, Sheffield 02/09/2017

Patriot Games held their Modern PPTQ Rivals of Ixalan 2018 this past weekend with a strong 31 player attendance. While our own Chris Berry only managed 21st after starting off with some very unexpected Infect matchups the day was won by Jordan Kisby with Burn. The top 8 breakdown was three Burn decks (two Boros, one Naya), Grixis Shadow, Storm, Eldrazi Tron, Bant Knightfall, and Azorius Control. See below for full decklists and if your LGS is running a PPTQ of their own we would love to share your top 8 too!
