Last weekend ChannelFireball hosted the largest in-person Magic event since the first wave of Covid-19 lockdowns, nearly two years ago. Modern was the headline constructed format of MTG Las Vegas 2021, which means we finally have an undiluted look at how the format has adjusted to the release of Modern Horizons 2 back in June.

And I gotta say, it looks pretty sweet.

No One Deck Is Too Good

I was among those players who called for bans after the release of Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Urza's Saga, and several other pushed cards in Modern Horizons 2. I still think there's a case to be made that Ragavan shows up in way too many decks—it's a very powerful Magic card.

That said, I'm not expecting to see bans anytime soon. The format is actually in a healthy place! While certain cards (think Dark Confidant) have gotten pushed out of the format over the past couple years, there is still a wide variety of decks to choose from. Seven different archetypes made it to the Top 8 of the Modern portion of MTG Las Vegas 2021, and many more archetypes are top-tier competitive.

Hammer Time

Going into last weekend I considered Hammer Time to be one of the best (if not the best) decks in the format. While we didn't see any copies in the Top 8, there were some copies of the deck near the top of the standings, and moving forward it remains one of the decks to beat.

Both Sigarda's Aid and Puresteel Paladin allow the deck to equip Colossus Hammer at no cost, and things get out of control very quickly. Between Stoneforge Mystic and Steelshaper's Gift, the deck is able to find equipment very easily. It seems however, that players came prepared for it this past weekend. Inexpensive removal spells for the artifacts and creatures in this deck is definitely one way of disrupting it.

Amulet Titan

Amulet Titan has been one of the top decks in Modern for a while now. A lot of the pieces are pretty much locked. You need to play Amulet of Vigor, bounce lands, Primeval Titan, and the list goes on. However, there is now an artifact toolbox theme.

Urza's Saga makes it much easier to find Amulet of Vigor, but it can also search up sideboard tech like Tormod's Crypt and Engineered Explosives. This deck can still accelerate into a fast Primeval Titan and alongside an Amulet produce a fast win. At two copies, this was the most represented archetype in the Top 8 of MTG Las Vegas.

Besides Urza's Saga the deck also plays four copies of Karn, the Great Creator as a way to grab artifacts out of the sideboard and disrupt what the opponent is up to. This gives the deck another angle of play that wasn't really available in previous versions of the deck. Artifact decks in particular should be concerned about this deck playing Karn, because its passive ability can be very disruptive.

Jund

Nathan Steur, one of the big up-and-coming players in Magic, has been working on Jund for a little while now. This isn't the Jund of old, but the new version has become essentially stock, sporting threats like Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer and Dragon's Rage Channeler.

If I were playing a Modern event right now this would be my choice, because it fits my play style. Jund can interact with anything in the format thanks to its fast clock and hand disruption, but can still be fine if the game drags out a bit. The deck doesn't have the same coherent sort of game plan as many other decks in the format, but that's because it's much more focused on disrupting what the opponent is doing.

Infect

Many people were surprised to see Infect in the Top 4 in Vegas. This goes to show you can reach incredible heights with an archetype you know and love—especially if you put a new spin on it. Jeff Jao was able to do that and revive a deck that has been seeing less play recently. Rather than go for the traditional Simic shell, he went for Sultai, which gave him access to Phyrexian Crusader.

Ignoble Hierarch incentivizes the black splash a bit, while Phyrexian Crusader's protection from red and white matches up really nicely against a lot of the removal in the format. We are still doing the traditional Infect thing, and that means winning games quickly. With eight total Hierarchs in the deck you should be able to come up with a lot of turn-three kills. Hierarch turn one, infect threat turn two, pump effects turn three will work a lot of the time.

Indomitable Creativity

Four-Color Creativity is very much a control deck that happens to have Indomitable Creativity as a way to close out games.

There are two creatures in the deck, so when you cast Indomitable Creativity (targeting a token from Hard Evidence, Dwarven Mine, or Prismari Command) you may have to do so not knowing if you will get Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or Serra's Emissary. Often, it doesn't matter—both are perfectly capable of closing out games.

If you like planeswalkers, then this is the deck to play! Sporting four different planeswalkers, the deck really embraces the Superfriends strategy as a way to get ahead on resources. The deck is basically a midrange deck with a combo finish. Four-Color Creativity is another deck a bit off the radar, and it's always nice to see unexpected strategies find success.

Rakdos Midrange

Talking about decks that are considered off the radar, the winner of the tournament was Rakdos Midrange! If you had told me that last week, no clear decklist would have come to my mind. There are so many different directions you can take these two colors, but Edwin Colleran was able to find a direction that clearly works.

The deck looks a lot like Jund, minus green. Filling up the graveyard in order to fully utilize Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is a big part of the game plan here.

Dauthi Voidewalker

The deck attacks the opponent's hand in a big way, which allows you to actually play cards that synergize with hand disruption. Dauthi Voidwalker and Tourach, Dread Cantor haven't seen a ton of play, but they clearly thrive in a deck with plentiful hand disruption. Tourach is of course Hymn to Tourach on a stick, but still gets pumped up by the likes of Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek. The deck even plays Kolaghan's Command for more hand disruption.

This deck is completely focused on attacking the opponent's hand, even more so than Jund. This type of strategy can be frustrating to play against, as against a deck like this opponents will often be forced into topdeck mode. I'm interested to see where this deck goes from here, as it does seem quite powerful.

Watch This Space

There is clearly still a lot of unexplored territory in Modern, and plenty of space for innovations, as well as familiar archetypes. In some cases, as with Amulet Titan and Infect, putting a new twist on an already established deck works out really well.

It will be interesting to see if some of these lists that we haven't seen too much of in online play end up becoming more established. Part of the reason MTG Las Vegas ended up with such a wide open metagame may also be attributed to there simply not being many Modern events outside of online play recently. With Modern back on the big stage, I hope more players will be incentivized to try and brew up something really original.
