Shahar Shenhar won Week 12 of Fandom Legends’ $4k MTG Arena tournament series Thursday evening, defeating Brad Nelson in an all Magic Pro League finals. Both players had also made it into the Top 4 of Mythic Championship III Las Vegas last weekend, with Nelson making it all the way to the finals.

Shenhar played Gruul Midrange, a deviation from the Mono-Red Aggro deck that brought him success in Las Vegas. With aggressively-slanted creatures, the deck was capable of fast starts through Llanowar Elves and Gruul Spellbreaker, while also grinding out longer games through the use of Domri, Anarch of Bolas and Skarrgan Hellkite.

Shenhar defeated another MPL member and Hareyuya Pro John Rolf on Esper Control in the quarterfinals, and yet another MPL member and Mythic Championship I winner Autumn Burchett on Simic Nexus in the semifinals. He met Nelson on Sultai Dreadhorde in the finals, who had also switched away from his Mythic Championship deck choice.
