It has been awhile since I played a PPTQ. After my previous competitive event, the RPTQ at Bangkok, I put my focus back at Standard. I have roughly 2 weeks to prepare for the PPTQ at HQ Seri Petaling. Like I always do, I look at all the available Midrange decks out there, and I found 3 decks: Abzan, Mardu Dragons and Jund (Caleb Curward from CFB posted videos of his games playing this deck on Youtube).
The Story of ‘Red Si Merah’
I still remember during my school days, my mom always reminded me not to skip classes if you want to be successful. Thus, instead of celebrating my birthday this year I decided to push myself to walk into Classroom. Guess what?

Hey Classmates! Our first WMCQ has just ended last weekend. It defo was a hectic weekend for both us the players! But we had a huge amount of fun nonetheless! Today I will be showing you guys a breakdown of the meta game for last weekend. A total of 87 players played during this WMCQ. And we can see from the Pie Chart below, that Abzan is still the most favourite deck that players like to run. Whether it be Aggro based, Midrange or Control, a large majority of the meta consisted of Abzan decks, where one even made it to Top 8.
What is a Midrange deck?
An Aggro deck plays the aggressive/proactive role, a Control deck plays the defensive/reactive role. While there's a 3rd type of deck, that plays reactive role against faster decks and proactive role against slower decks. We call them Midrange decks.
Why play Midrange deck?
So Magic Origins went legal yesterday. Aggro players will be excited about Goblin Piledriver, Midrange fellas will love the new 4-mana sweeper Languish, Blue mages are happy with the functional reprint of Syncopate-Clash of Wills. Meanwhile, devotion decks are coming back with the additions of these cards:
