Coverage: MMM Showdown June


We invited the best of the local Modern community as well as a host of international stars to the first MMM Showdown streamed live from Berlin. Tune in and catch Andrea Mengucci, Eli Loveman, and Simon Nielsen playing on camera, with commentary from Thoralf Severin, Arne Huschenbeth, and Jamin Kauf!

After five rounds of Swiss and three single-elimination rounds, Denmark's Simon Nielsen claimed the title and the trophy. Throughout the day we saw lots of interesting strategies at the top tables, out of a metagame almost too diverse, and seven distinct archetypes made it to the Top 8. In the end, Nielsen's Glimpse of Tomorrow combo deck proved strongest of them all.

Congratulations to our champion, Simon Nielsen!

Eli Loveman finished the Swiss rounds in third place but had to leave. He dropped before the Top 8, meaning the player in ninth place, Luca Steiner, advanced to the playoffs instead.


Top 16 Decklists

Here you can find the Top 16 decks listed in the order of the players' Swiss standing.

Metagame Breakdown

Omnath, Locus of Creation rules supreme! Control-oriented four-color builds turned out the most popular among players. But that wasn't the biggest story from the metagame's side. More than that the breakdown told a tale of utmost diversity. The "Others" category made up more than 40%. It represents Yawgmoth, Merfolk, Spirits, Monastery Mentor, Domain Zoo, Blue Tron, Glimpse of Tomorrow, Infect, Affinity, Crashing Footfalls, Living End, Enchantress, and Vivien on the Hunt.
