The first Pro Tour Qualifier Avacyn Restored was in Bern and was a definite success! 73 players found their way to play some Magic, earn a few planeswalker points and bash it out for the slot to go to Barcelona. The format of the tournament was Modern and made it a challenge for players and judges alike as the format allows a whole slew of different decks and strategies.
