The gauntlet was thrown and the play mats were set up at the one and only Dice Addiction Games for the Magic: The Gathering Modern State Championships Sunday, March 5 in Tulsa. Fifty people from around the state, some even from surrounding states, showed up to test their decks, but in the end, one person reigned supreme. Stepping atop the proverbial pedestal after a long day filled with fierce battles, Daniel Graves was named Oklahoma’s champion for 2017.
