Some closing notes: It is really interesting to see Mono Black Aggro as the top deck of the tourney. With cards like Phyrexian Obliterator coming in with Historic Anthology 3, Mono Black has always been in a strong position. The boogieman of the format, Bant, was not able to win it as it tends to do. This harkens as well with how Mono Red won last week’s Sunday Slam. While Bant decks may seem to be on a downturn, it’s more likely that Bant is the easiest deck to get good results with. It will be exciting to see if this ease in playing correlates with a continuous high win rate as the format’s age continues to grow.
