14th God of Modern Challenger Tournament and Title Match


On the 20th of July, 272 Players battled in the 14th God of Modern Challenger Tournament. A former Pro Tour Champion Kazuyuki Takimura won the tournament with Dredge. As you know, 《Bridge from Below》 was banned but graveyard strategy is still alive.

He then tried to beat 13th God of Modern Yuta Takahashi on UW Control but Yuta played 6 graveyard hates (!) in his sideboard. Yuta also run 4 《Force of Negation》 in his mainboard and they were very useful to shut down the Kazuyuki’s explosive start such as 《Faithless Looting》 and 《Cathartic Reunion》.

Yuta finally beat Kazuyuki (3-1) and held the title. Congratulations God of Modern, Yuta Takahashi!
