Pro Tour Modern Horizons 3 Round 14 Disqualification

June 29, 2024
Wizards of the Coast

In Round 13 of Pro Tour Modern Horizons 3, player Bart Van Etten was paired against Javier Dominguez for a Feature Match. On turn three of Game 3, Dominguez played Phlage, Titan of Fire's Fury to deal 3 damage to Van Etten's Nethergoyf, which was a 2/3 creature (with two card types in Van Etten's graveyard). In response, Van Etten played Not Dead After All targeting Nethergoyf, tapped it, and put a Wicked role token on it, indicating the Nethergoyf had died and been returned to the battlefield by the spell. However, Not Dead After All was in the graveyard as the third card type so Nethergoyf was a 3/4 creature when when the Phlage, Titan of Fire's Fury trigger resolved. Nethergoyf would not have died and, therefore, should not have received a Wicked role token.

This issue was raised to judge staff during Round 14, and the Head Judges for the event investigated by reviewing footage and interviewing both players following their Round 14 matches. The determination of this investigation was Van Etten had intentionally committed a Game Rule Violation. As a result, he was disqualified from the event. The result of the Round 13 match was reversed as part of this ruling.
