Innistrad: Midnight Hunt releases today, and we're all just itching to play with the new cards. While many of you probably aren't sure yet what you want to play in the new format, don't worry — I have 50 deck ideas for you!

Too many? That's okay, I can give you the highlights. I've got my five favorite decks here (plus an honorary mention), as well as some lessons learned from my time exploring Midnight Hunt.

Lessons Learned

The mana in this format can be very good, but you'll need to bias your mana base towards the colors you want early. If you're playing three colors and need to play a two-color spell on turn two, make sure that you can cast it without these. You can accept that they'll be your turn 1 play some of the time, but that means cutting down on creaturelands like Lair of the Hydra. Aggro decks can not count on these lands to curve out early, and while these are still good for aggro decks, they force you to pick one color of 1-drops a lot of the time. 

The big caveat here is that Jaspera Sentinel decks get some incredibly smooth mana. There are a lot of very solid one-mana creatures in Midnight Hunt, and mechanics like flashback want a lot of mana. Jaspera Sentinel is a quiet MVP in many of my decks and I expect it to remain a Standard staple. 

There are plenty of cards in Midnight Hunt that are powerful but lack appropriate enablers. Ghoulcaller's Harvest demands a high creature count, but there's not a lot of self-mill without stretching to additional colors. Even then, the self-mill is pretty lackluster or expensive. 

Champion of the Perished is a very powerful card, but the surrounding zombies are decidedly mediocre. A lot of the power of zombies in Midnight Hunt got tied up in Decayed, and self-destructing tokens aren't what you want in a tribal aggro deck. 

Diregraf Rebirth is an insanely pushed reanimation spell, but Standard lacks the sacrifice tools to really pull this off. Woe Strider and Witch's Oven both rotate, leaving us without a single free sacrifice outlet. 

All of these cards are likely to still see play, but they're going to need more enablers in future sets to truly shine. 

Light up the Night

The midrange tools in Midnight Hunt are unreal. I built multiple decks around the above package of cards, and I expect it to be a Standard staple. Wrenn and Seven is incredibly powerful with flashback cards, and is an outstanding planeswalker. Dire-Strain Rampage is a Harrow that can flash itself back while also retaining utility well into the game despite being a ramp spell. Storm the Festival asks you for an expensive deck with high impact hits, but Wrenn and Seven is about the best it gets, and plays very well with the ramp spells required to cast the rest of your deck fairly. 

Aggressive decks got some very good tools. If you don't interact much with the opposing board, you need to be doing something very powerful, very quickly. Curves are going to get lower and interaction is going to be better with the absence of Adventures and Emergent Ultimatum

Meathook Massacre

That said, reactive decks also got high power cards in Midnight Hunt. While we're losing some of the most powerful cards of the last 5 years with rotation, we're gaining some heavy hitters on a more traditional Standard axis. Flashback isn't always stapled to a body like Adventures were, and there's a lot less manaless power in this new format. Trading resources will once again be the name of the game, and having the right answers on time will be critical.

Now for the part you're all actually here for. If you did Ctrl+F "Decklists", this is where they start. (Although you should go back and read the analysis later!)

First Day of Class and Ghoulcaller's Harvest is a wombo combo that only requires you to have 7 creatures in the yard (or 6 if you can discard a creature to Learn). The best enablers are blue, however, and the mana stops this deck from breaking into my top 5. I'm gonna play a lot of harvest decks, but it'll take some time to refine a more consistent list.

Cathartic Pyre is an incredible card for these graveyard shells. It's early interaction that also helps you bin your reanimation targets and dig to the payoffs. Old Stickfingers is a cute one-of that you can use to bin a creature or three to reanimate later. 

Tovolar's Huntmaster is one of the best reanimation targets in Standard, while also being reasonable enough to cast fairly. It's 10 power across three bodies — more if you make it to nighttime. Diregraf Rebirth costs five or more mana most of the time, but Blood on the Snow allows you to set up some very powerful swing turns where you bring back multiple threats after wiping the board. 

I think reanimation strategies in Standard work best when they're an auxiliary plan to a midrange strategy. If you look at the decks from original Innistrad Standard, people were simply using unburial rites for value with Thragtusk and Angel of Serenity, though sometimes you got to put them into play a turn or two early.  I'm aiming for the same strategy here, especially because Wrenn and Seven already leans into that gameplan while enabling Blood on the Snow

Join the Dance is an efficient token that you can re-use later. Sure, it's no Lingering Souls, but it doesn't have to be. Ritual of Hope, on the other hand, is a potent anthem effect. Pride of Conquerors was a Standard staple, and Coven is a lot easier to enable than Cities' Blessing. Adeline, Resplendent Cathar is both a token generator and a payoff in the same card, threatening a lot of damage that isn't easy to block. 

Remember what I said about Jaspera Sentinel enabling aggressive decks' mana? Not only is Naya Tokens aggressive, it has plenty of ways to sink extra mana. Showdown of the Skalds, Join the Dance, Usher of the Fallen, and Lunarch Veteran allow you to sink extra mana and play a much bigger game than you could otherwise. 

I think Naya Tokens is one of the most efficient decks in the new format, and early on, that's a huge point in its favor. The combination of Showdown of the Skalds, Jaspera Sentinel, and Clarion Spirit is a tried and true package of cards, and Ritual of Hope only makes it better.

Remember that midrange package I talked about in the lessons section? Felidar Retreat plays incredibly well with every single part of it. Lotus Cobra and Felidar Retreat allow all those land drops to convert into additional power, giving you a way to come back from an otherwise slow early game. 

When you're trying to rush to Storm the Festival, you need to be able to defend yourself with your hits. Esika's Chariot and Arlinn, the Pack's Hope both generate two tokens immediately to defend yourself with, and Wrenn and Seven and Esika's Chariot make a neat little treefolk factory together. 

I'm not sure if aggro decks will be too much for something like this, but I'm very sure that something like this is too much for opposing midrange decks. It's hard to compete with the tempo swing of Storm the Festival, let alone follow up copies. Wrenn and Seven alone is such a strong engine in midrange slogfests that anyone with one will almost certainly bully an opponent without one. It's just a question of which surrounding cards are the best in context to support Wrenn and Seven.

There's nothing fancy going on here — a low curve, the ability to enable Coven, and Adeline are all you really need. Search Party Captain gives you a bit of resiliency, though Faceless Haven is already pretty good at punishing sweepers and closing out the game. Adeline triggers even if she doesn't attack, meaning even the first turn she comes down, you're adding pressure to the board. 

There's honestly not a whole lot to say. Mono-White Aggro has a lot of good one drops and Intrepid Adversary is a functional two drop that scales very well to later turns, further mitigating the risk of flood. Bonecrusher Giant is gone, and aggro decks are back.

This is my favorite deck of the entire deck dump, by a wide margin. It's incredibly efficient, it scales well, and it can close a game through blockers cleanly. 

The compost duo feeds off the graveyard and grows to a very respectable size for a pair of 1-drops. Importantly, they're also green, so I'm able to lean into Lair of the Hydra and Jaspera Sentinel to keep my mana clean in the early game, leaning on Deserted Beach later on for the cards that play better later. 

This right here is how we go off. Rite of Harmony is a busted draw spell that flashes back for a reasonable enough mana cost, and Ritual of Hope is our endgame closer, if necessary. This deck acts a lot like a Showdown of the Skalds deck, but your threats scale themselves and your mana is a bit cleaner, allowing you to play a full four copies of Lair of the Hydra to stuff opposing boardwipes. 

Lunarch Veteran

These are our enablers. Devoted Grafkeeper is a self-mill creature that goes on to pay you back in tempo and buys back as a 3-mana 3/1 flier from the yard. Lunarch Veteran is a cheap creature early, and a cheap graveyard spell late. It's not big, but it doesn't have to be. With Rite of Harmony, Devoted Grafkeeper, and Clarion Spirit, cheap and efficient is the name of the game. Rootcoil Creeper helps us get set up, helps us deploy cards after Rite of Harmony, and helps us play from our graveyard at a discount. In the ultra late game it can even buy back a flashback spell, which means another two uses of whatever it was. 

I'm very excited to play Bant Compost and work on this archetype. It's pseudo-aristocrats nonsense, but it's also efficient enough to look competitive. Any time you can take this many game actions and get paid for it you should absolutely be paying attention. 1-drops that can be 3/3s or larger aren't something to overlook, either. 

Midnight Hunt Standard looks incredibly promising and I cannot wait to get my hands on the cards. While I know some stores are running events again, please be safe. Get vaccinated, get tested every now and then (especially before/after travel), wear a mask. I want paper magic back as badly as you do, but I also want our community to be safe. Hop on Arena or Magic Online. Order some cards and play via webcam. Maybe grab some sealed product and have a few vaccinated friends over for a draft while we can still play outside in the nice summer weather. Do what you can to keep our community safe and healthy so we can get back to the events we love sooner rather than later. 

Enjoy release weekend, and I'll be back next week for the first Standard Metagame Breakdown of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt!
