We had a quick lunch break, and then we were onto the Modern portion. My first match was the Living End mirror, and after quickly losing the first game, I sat there with my sideboard in hand, thinking that this might be a fairly short day. Thankfully, though, in both game two and three, I opened with one of my two Leyline of the Voids and won easily.
From there, the Modern rounds went smoothly, as I defeated Izzet Breach, Amulet Titan, Golgari Yawgmoth and Mono Green Tron to go 5-0 in the Modern portion and finish the day at 6-2.
I felt like I got fairly lucky throughout my games, but I also played well and thought that I navigated some difficult situations and took some risks that paid off. After starting 1-2, I couldn’t ask for a better result!
The team had also done really well overall. We had Calcano at 7-1, Seb at 6-1-1, and multiple of us at 6-2. We went out to a decent Asian buffet for dinner, and I went to bed feeling happy and stuffed from a good day of eating and Magic.
