Hello everyone, welcome to another article. Few things to highlight since the last time I posted something:
- Addendum Ban on Felidar Guardian kills off copycat combo in Standard
- Mono-Black Zombies won PT Amonkhet
- Temur Marvel became the new deck-to-beat in Standard after copycat
- Joe Soh won GP Kobe 2017 with another of his Eldrazi brew
- Pang Ming top 4 GP Manila 2017
- White-Blue Flash, Black-Green Delirium and Temur Marvel won the GPs last weekends
About the banning of cat, honestly I'm pretty happy about that as it did open up many decks in the format. However, the aggressive bannings from Wizards is not something that players want to see as they really need to think twice before they invest in a deck. As of now, I'm pretty sure Aetherworks Marvel is in Wizards watchlist so its not a good idea to invest into a Marvel deck right now. If you are looking to make a Standard deck now, I would probably suggest the following:
- Green-Red Pummeler
- Black-Green Delirium
- Blue-Red Control
Today I'm going to talk abit on one of them - Black-Green Delirium.
Hello everyone. It has been awhile since my last post. I've been away since last November I think, for some family matters, and work of course. Didn't buy any cards for like 6 months until recently I got my playset of Fatal Push (and those are the only cards I bought from Aether Revolt). While I'm away from playing paper Magic, I did pick up Magic Online in Janurary. So today, I'm going to try out something new: to record some videos of my games. And the deck I'm playing today, is the good old Jund.
Hi folks! Its me back again for more Standard goodness! The meta in my opinion is super fresh and super fun at the moment! Although we have just passed the First Pro Tour of the new Rotation, I believe that the meta will continue to evolve and won't stop at just those few archtypes. Preliminary to the new Two Block rotation, I think Standard formats will see many new decks and combos yet! Anyways, without further ado, on to the main event! (of this article). We recently had our PPTQ last Saturday alongside Pro Tour Weekend (SOI). Many funky decks were seen but the best (for that time being) eight made it to the Top placings. Here are the standings of the Top 8 players for PPTQ: Honolulu at Classroom:
They roamed the skies during Tarkir. They were the fearsome beasts from the east. Dragons are always an all-time favourite in the realm of Magic: The Gathering. They have the most utility support cards in the current format. All of which require you to either control a dragon or reveal a dragon upon casting. With the release of BFZ/OGW, dragons have stopped seeing much play unlike before. They are the terror in the skies but once dealt with, their threat is nothing compared to the might of the Eldrazi. But, with the new rotation around the corner, I believe that dragons will be seen roaming the skies once again.
