Grand Prix São Paulo
MagicFest São Paulo featured a Standard Grand Prix with a slightly different structure. There were two Day Ones – one on Friday and one on Saturday. Both days fed into Sunday’s Day Two. And at the end of Sunday the Top 8 looked familiar with five varieties of Oko decks. While Rakdos Knights, Rakdos Sacrifice, and Jund Sacrifice all made an appearance in the elimination rounds, it was Thiago Rosenmann with Simic Food who earned an invite to the first Players Tour Finals.
