Strixhaven has been an interesting set. We now have the full card list, and while there's no Oko, Thief of Crowns or Omnath, Locus of Creation in the set, there are a lot of role players for existing archetypes. Today I want to dig into what Strixhaven brings to the decks built around Winota, Joiner of Forces.

I'm not going to beat around the bush on this one. Blade Historian is the most powerful Winota, Joiner of Forces hit in Standard. Giving your entire team double strike is what we do in older formats with Angrath's Marauders. Blade Historian is a little smaller, but it's also far more reasonable to cast it.

Elite Spellbinder is the closest competition in Strixhaven for Blade Historian. With or without Winota, Joiner of Forces, PVDDR offers disruption on an evasive body. You can play Elite Spellbinder to check if the coast is clear for Winota and slow down your opponents removal, and more importantly any Elite Spellbinder joining the party in combat can snipe a sweeper and make sure your wide battlefield stays that way.

Silverquill Silencer and Selfless Glyphweaver are weaker disruptive elements that still provide insurance against removal. Many sweepers right now are exile-based, and Silverquill Silencer doesn't actually stop them from casting the named card, but these are still excellent disruptive elements, and Silverquill Silencer especially is a potent aggressive card.

There are a few other good Humans like Extus, Oriq Overlord and Sedgemoor Witch that have synergy with specific builds of Winota, Joiner of Forces, but these four are the best new Winota hits in Strixhaven. What about enablers?

Callous Bloodmage is just about everything you could ever want. Two non-Human bodies, extra cards when you're facing down removal, and graveyard hate against Rogues/reanimator shenanigans. Bloodmage is just a solid, flexible card with incredible value in Winota, Joiner of Forces.

Professor of Symbology is an "Elvish Visionary" variant, except that you can always grab a three-mana token generator in any Winota, Joiner of Forces color combination. Black versions can even fetch Pest Summoning to really power out Winota triggers. You can get easy access to Academic Probation to stymy important combo or boardwipe turns, and never forget the opportunity to pitch dead cards for fresh action.

Shaile, Dean of Radiance plays with Winota, Joiner of Forces a different way. The front half attacks in the air and makes every creature after a bit bigger, but the real payoff is when you take your Winota turns. Because Shaile has vigilance, you can attack, put all your new human friends into play, and then activate Shaile to pump Winota and everyone she brought along that turn. Embrose, Dean of Shadow is just upside you get sometimes in the black versions, and both halves play incredibly well with Basri's Lieutenant.

Thunderous Orator is a non-human Wizard for party variants of Winota, Joiner of Forces, and if you stack Winota's triggers on top of the trigger from Thunderous Orator you can have Orator gain the keywords of any new Humans—including indestructible from Winota.

Venerable Warsinger offers you resilience in the face of spot removal. While the body size isn't impressive and trample is not flying, Venerable Warsinger is a non-Human threat that can bring back early plays and recycle defensive creatures like Selfless Savior and Alseid of Life's Bounty. With a counter on it, it can even bring back Winota, Joiner of Forces, albeit after you've already attacked.

I've been going pretty hard on Winota, Joiner of Forces in my 50 Deck Challenge for Strixhaven, and I've got six new decks for you today:

Splashing black slows us down early, but gives us two turn-three plays that make two non-Human bodies. Callous Bloodmage and Woe Strider are excellent enablers for both Winota, Joiner of Forces and Shaile, Dean of Radiance. Curving Shaile into Callous Bloodmage into Winota is simply unfair.

You still get access to Blade Historian even if it's a little harder to cast, and Silverquill Silencer and Elite Spellbinder are both excellent hits as well. While you sacrifice early game speed, you get incredible Winota, Joiner of Forces turns in exchange. This is probably the most resilient and powerful version of Winota in Standard.

Mono-Red Winota goes the complete opposite direction. Give up a whole bunch of Winota, Joiner of Forces power in exchange for incredible speed and access to super powerful Blade Historian turns. Anax, Hardened in the Forge into Blade Historian hits hard. Hitting Blade Historian off of Winota hits even harder.

This is essentially a mono-red deck trading Torbran, Thane of Red Fell and Faceless Haven for Blade Historian and Winota, Joiner of Forces. I don't know which is more worth it without playing the games, but this version gives you some disgustingly fast kills uninterrupted.

Jaspera Sentinel helps to deploy your board ahead of time, and the party payoff for Winota, Joiner of Forces lies in Squad Commander and Archpriest of Iona. Blade Historian wants you to be able to hit hard and get past blockers. Flying over the opposing board and pumping the team is exactly what you want.

Masked Vandal is still a valuable card in a format with so many powerful artifacts and enchantments, but we no longer need to lean on it quite as heavily. Elite Spellbinder and Blade Historian are excellent new party members, though it's possible this deck should be playing Thunderous Orator to bolster the Wizard count.

Let's get a little wild. What if we included an infinite combo in our Winota, Joiner of Forces deck? Get out your thumbtacks and red yarn, here's how it works:

First Day of Class causes every creature to come into play with a +1/+1 counter. Basri's Lieutenant makes a 2/2 Knight whenever a creature with a +1/+1 counter on it dies. Woe Strider can scry infinitely, killing a whole bunch of Knights that Basri's Lieutenant keeps replacing. Syr Konrad, the Grim deals your opponent one damage each time you do this, and can conveniently be scried to the top of your deck to cheat into play with Winota, Joiner of Forces since this whole setup costs a lot of mana.

Oh, also you get access to some really good Lessons thanks to First Day of Class and Professor of Symbology. And Plargg, Dean of Chaos can help dig to the combo where relevant while their colleague Augusta, Dean of Order can pump your wide board and make combat math hard for the opponent.

This is definitely the most far-fetched of these Winota, Joiner of Forces decks, but it's hard to turn down infinite kills.

Akoum Houndmaster

You didn't think I was going to write a whole Winota, Joiner of Forces article without touching on Paw Blade did you? Stonebinder's Familiar gives you 12 one-mana good doggos to curve into Pack Leader. Alpine Houndmaster finds you even more four-footed friends and attacks for scary amounts with Blade Historian.

While this is probably weaker than other versions of Winota, Paw Blade is also a fan favorite and I expect to see a ton of it in the early days of the format. This one's for all you dog lovers.

It's been wild to have an entire extra week to build decks before the Strixhaven Early Access Event, but I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the cards. Strixhaven has a lot of interesting new tools and effects even if nothing blows the doors off the format (and honestly nothing should, Oko wasn't a fun card). This upcoming Standard format is going to give players a lot of tools to adjust to the metagame and give a lot of agency in individual games, and I'm a huge fan of both.

I. Can't. Wait.
