Learn more about five players who put up a great weekend through a high finish, interesting deck, or memorable moment
5. Ted Felicetti
Ted Felicetti had a tough time in Day 1 of the Modern Open, but he didn’t let it ruin his weekend. The Richmond Open winner came into #SCGORL with the Season Three points lead and added onto that lead with a win in the Standard Classic. While Collected+Company will no longer be there. Can Felicetti keep his lead with the changing of the format? Check out Felicetti’s Bant Company decklist Michael+Majors decided to make a run for the Players’ Championship in Season Three following his Top-4 finish in the New Jersey Invitational. The platinum level pro kept his spot as the third point leader after this weekend, thanks to his Top 8 with Scapeshift. Majors opted to play the R/G list that Oliver Tiu played at the World Championship, paying off in his sixth Open Top 8. Though Majors fell in the quarterfinals to the eventual champion, Brad Carpenter, the 15 points will keep him tied with Carpenter in the Season Three race at 56 SCG Points. Check out Majors’ Scapeshift decklist Vengeance, opting for a Grixis build without Worldspine+Wurm or Nourishing+Shoal. Sharfman looked primed for another title after making the Top 8 by defeating Billy Vasilakis in Round 15 on Naya Breach. Sharfman defeated Eli Kassis and his unique Four-Color Retreat deck in the quarterfinals before beating Vengeance decklist Michael+Majors for the second and third Season Three points qualifications. Carpenter’s win with Infect came at the right time of the year, setting himself up to control his own destiny down the stretch. He also improved on his Top-4 finish at the Charlotte Modern Open in Season One, where he lost in the semifinals to Goryo’s Vengeance at the hands of Bob Huang. Infect proved faster than the graveyard-based deck David Sharfman played this weekend, as he won his hometown Open and marked the first win for the Next Ridge Nexus team.
