Deck Of The Day #61 - Winner Winner

Justice to feature the winner's deck here at #DeckOfTheDay...

There was a lot of memorable moments at GP Lille and we all had a blast there, but I feel it is a matter of Justice to feature the winner's deck here at #DeckOfTheDay

4 Blighted Agent
4 Glistener Elf
4 Noble Hierarch
1 Dryad Arbor
4 Gitaxian Probe
1 Distortion Strike
4 Become Immense
4 Might of Old Krosa
4 Mutagenic Growth
4 Vines of Vastwood
2 Apostle's Blessing
2 Twisted Image
1 Dismember
1 Groundswell
1 Spell Pierce
4 Inkmoth Nexus
4 Windswept Heath
4 Wooded Foothills
2 Breeding Pool
2 Forest
2 Pendelhaven
1 Misty Rainforest
2 Spellskite
3 Kitchen Finks
1 Distortion Strike
2 Spell Pierce
2 Dismember
1 Dispel
2 Nature's Claim
2 Grafdigger's Cage

It is a beautiful thing how streamlined this deck is. 12 1/1 creatures with Infect, the best instant including the broken Become Immense and the best protection available in Vines of Vastwood and Apostle's Blessing. This deck is capable of winning on turn 3 by protecting a massive infect creature - which is no easy feature.

In fact, there are some complaints about how efficient linear decks are in Modern right now. Modern was developed to be a turn4 format, but this deck and the finalist's are capable of winning turn3. I don't know if we can expect some action from WotC (mainly on the Banned List) but this is how things are right now.

For the future? This will be a Modern mainstay for many years to come (barring some bannings, of course). There are still some PrePTQs of this format, so make sure you include Infect in your gauntlet.
