Modern Deck Feature: Magus Zoo


So I was scouring through the Modern decklist from last weekend’s Pro Tour Oath of the Gatewatch held in Atlanta and found an archetype that I think my poolmate played from our last local Modern tournament. The deck is of a Naya aggro type but can lock opponents’ mana with maindeck Magus of the Moon and additional Blood Moon in the sideboard. It was piloted by Phillip Braverman and went 8-2 in the Modern constructed portion of the Pro Tour.
