Standard is… kind of awful at the moment. It's not like everyone didn't see this coming, we definitely have had months and months and months of people saying to just ban Wilderness Reclamation and Teferi, Time Raveler. And now people are just playing those cards in the same deck because hey, why not.

Thankfully there's a better format on MTG Arena, finally, and its name is Historic. With a host of new cards from Jumpstart, a fresh set of bans, and an entire Arena Open dedicated to it, there are several compelling reasons to pay attention to the format.

And if that's not enough, here's one more: I can't say enough about how much I love Historic.

Muxus, Goblin Grandee

The format is everything I want Magic to be. There's a wide variety of strategies, from aggro to combo to control. It's new enough that the format isn't established, and deck brewing can get you miles ahead of your competition. And above all, there's a lot left to explore, as all the shake-ups and the lack of attention to the format before recently means it's not clear that we've ever had anything close to a solved Historic format. Even before Jumpstart and the bans, when the format was primarily Gruul vs Nexus of Fate, I found a lot of success with an offbeat Field of the Dead, Golos, Tireless Pilgrim and Nexus of Fate deck that was very favored against both of the "best decks" in the metagame.

If you're new to Historic, there is a lot going on. People play versions of their favorite decks from various Standard formats, and it can be hard to quickly get a sense of what the format's actually about, especially outside the top of the ladder.

The purpose of this article is to serve as a primer on the format, so you can find your footing and get started. But keep in mind that this is a starting point, not where you should end up. Even just in the next week before the Arena Open, I assume things are going to continue developing. The best way to get ahead is deckbuilding, and if you can identify weak points in the format, you'll go a long way.

For that reason, I'm going to cover strategies broadly, talking about what I see as the lynchpin of the deck or strategy rather than a specific list or even archetype.

Let's start off with what is the most popular, and possibly just the best deck in Historic...

Goblins

That's right, Goblins. One of Magic's oldest tribes has slowly received new cards on Arena in the form of Goblin Matron, Goblin Ringleader, Goblin Chieftain… and then suddenly they printed one of the best tribal payoffs we've ever seen: Muxus, Goblin Grandee.

Muxus, Goblin Grandee

Muxus, Goblin Grandee resolving is almost always game over. With two lords that give all Goblins haste, there's a good chance that Muxus, Goblin Grandee will be attacking the turn they comes into play, along with every other Goblin with them. Even if they doesn't, the board is typically so insurmountable your opponent has exactly one turn before they're dead.

In fact Muxus, Goblin Grandee is so powerful once they resolve that lists have moved further toward abandoning any sort of "traditional" aggro plan in favor of powering out Muxus, Goblin Grandee faster and more consistently.

The most extreme version, and one that's been doing exceedingly well for people who try it, was created by Austin Yost:

This deck has abandoned many early pieces like Fanatical Firebrand, Goblin Chainwhirler, Goblin Ringleader and Gempalm Incinerator for almost pure combo pieces, making it closer to something like a Scapeshift deck assembling six mana than an aggressive tribal deck. With four Muxus, Goblin Grandee and four ways to find them in the form of Goblin Matron, the deck is remarkably consistent. And the combination of Skirk Prospector, Wily Goblin and Phyrexian Tower (with no actual black cards…) means that Muxus, Goblin Grandee comes down early as well.

Krenko, Mob Boss is quietly one of the best pieces in the deck. With so many unimpressive creatures in the list now, there are times where Muxus, Goblin Grandee will be the only relevant attacker, and they don't have trample. Enter Krenko, Mob Boss, who with either Goblin Chieftain or Goblin Warchief can make so many Goblins that your opponent can't hope to block enough damage. 

The good news is there are a lot of points of interaction with the deck. It's a creature deck, and creatures can be removed easily enough. Its "combo" requires creatures to enter play from the library, making it vulnerable to Grafdigger's Cage. The deck is trying to resolve a six-mana creature, which makes it vulnerable to everything from Quench to Essence Scatter to Disdainful Stroke. And a turn-three Teferi, Time Raveler that lives can use his +1 to cast Shatter the Sky after Muxus, Goblin Grandee has entered play. 

Or you could control their board piece by piece so they never get to Muxus, Goblin Grandee, and it never does anything relevant.

Mayhem Devil

To the surprise of absolutely nobody who has played against Mayhem Devil since it was printed, Sacrifice preys on decks full of 1/1 creatures, and Goblins is full of them. With a strong engine that we've known, a top end that also often wins the game when it resolves in the form of Bolas's Citadel, and a plethora of interaction against the most popular deck on the ladder, Sacrifice is a serious contender in the Historic metagame.

The list above comes from one of the most influential players in the online metagame, Crokeyz, and is a relatively low to the ground version with Stitcher's Supplier. My only concern is lacking relevant pieces to make Stitcher's Supplier more than a generic 1/1, though finding Cauldron Familiar and fueling Woe Strider is nice. It makes me wonder, however, if a version with Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger or other recursive creatures might be more relevant or better suited for it. That said, it might be the best option they have available.

Interesting to note is that this deck is also very weak to Gradigger's Cage, as their plan becomes entirely about piecing together damage with Mayhem Devil, Priest of Forgotten Gods and Woe Strider. Even Bolas's Citadel is useless against the artifact, so the Embereth Shieldbreakers in the sideboard are putting in overtime against the artifact.

Ultimately, I'm inclined to guess that a Rakdos version of Sacrifice is better positioned. Thankfully, Ally Warfield will have an article coming out tomorrow about just that.

Field of the Dead

One of the most played decks of Historic has been Field of the Dead since it was unsuspended for… reasons. Honestly, it isn't clear to me why it was unsuspended, but I guess they thought Goblin Ruinblaster was going to keep it in check or something. 

They were wrong, and Field of the Dead is still silly.

Frankly if Field of the Dead is being held in check by anything, it's that the rest of the format is trying to power out six-mana one-card combos as fast as possible. In those games Field of the Dead looks downright fair, with only a few cards in play!

The deck did quietly get a major boost from Jumpstart cards. Printing Explore into the format gives the deck a full eight versions of the effect at two mana (and up to 12 total if they have four Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath). Oracle of Mul Daya, though not in this particular list, becomes hilarious with all the cantrips, continually moving spells to hand and library into play with Oracle of Mul Daya's abilities.

The versions that are popular, though, have a tendency to look a lot like they did when they left standard: primarily Bant, splashing red and black for Golos, Tireless Pilgrim's ability and Kenrith, the Returned King. Frequently there are some new top-end choices like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. While Ugin, the Spirit Dragon seems at least passable against Goblins and Rakdos Sacrifice, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger feels downright out of place these days. Unless you're expecting to play against a lot of control decks, it's the first card I'd look to cut.

What's interesting, though, is that there's no reason these lists have to look like this. Green and blue are pretty mandatory for Growth Spiral and Explore. From there the deck can be built with any or all of the other colors in mind. Cards like Migration Path and Cultivate fix other colors so well that the deck can kind of play whatever it needs for the metagame.

If you're going to stick to Bant, I wouldn't be looking at the Throne of Eldraine versions of this deck, but the M20 version that LSV used to win GP Denver last year with Scapeshift. The name of the game is winning fast right now, and I'm not inclined to play eight- and ten-drops against Goblins playing Muxus, Goblin Grandee on turn three.

Even if it isn't currently on top, I wholeheartedly believe Field of the Dead will be the best deck again. Playing with sixty cards that all have an impact on the game is just heads and tails ahead of every other deck that doesn't have the privilege of their lands also becoming one to four Zombie tokens. Don't be afraid to experiment with different things, and don't forget that the only cards that are sacrosanct are Explore and Growth Spiral. Every other spell, up to and including Golos, Tireless Pilgrim himself, is a flex slot. 

Build for the metagame you want to beat, not the one from last week or last year.

Curious Obsession


On the opposite end of the spectrum from Field of the Dead are various Curious Obsession builds. With Goblins and Field of the Dead frequently clogging up the ground and trying to resolve expensive cards, fliers and counterspells are decently well positioned at the moment.

Most of these look a lot like the deck that Autumn Burchett won with at the first ever Mythic Championship, though there have been some updates in the form of Brazen Borrower and Sea-Dasher Octopus. 

Lofty Denial

Probably the most important pick-up is M20's Lofty Denial, which has let the deck finally move away from Wizard's Retort as a main counterspell. Against Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, Muxus, Goblin Grandee and Bolas's Citadel, there's not much hope that any of these cards will resolve any time soon. While all of these decks can put together wins in other ways, their beatdowns are fairly meek even compared to this deck's. 

If there's a card I question, it's Brineborn Cutthroat. I'm just not convinced that the card is really ever going to attack more than once in this format, and instead will just be a big ground butt to block small creatures.

The same strategy that has always worked against this deck still works just fine: be aggressive, as they rarely can race a one-drop into a two-drop.

Questing Beast

As long as they're legal, there will always be a deck playing a curve of big beefy creatures and attacking. The Gruul version is definitively more popular, but there is also a mono-green deck running around that features Steel Leaf Champion and Vivien, Arkbow Ranger to pile on damage.

Mono-Green Aggro and Gruul Aggro decks are pretty prevalent on the ladder, and there are two explanations for why. 

card-showcase id="Steel Leaf Champion|| Gruul Spellbreaker|| Questing Beast]|| Embercleave]

One is that these decks are looking to take advantage of a metagame that has many small creatures and aren't prepared to block creatures with trample, and cards like Steel Leaf Champion, Gruul Spellbreaker, Questing Beast and Embercleave can run them over while ignoring their creatures.

The other is that this is a holdover from before last week. Prior to Jumpstart, the two most popular decks were Nexus of Fate and Gruul Aggro, which beat Nexus. 

While I think the latter is probably more true, the deck is still showing up and has at least some reason to exist, so it's good to know it's around. 

Kethis

Lurking under the surface of all the Muxus, Goblin Grandee positioning is the old Kethis combo.

For anyone who looks at this deck and is confused at the seemingly random collection of cards in the list, the purpose of the deck is to combine (about) three cards: two Mox Amber, Diligent Excavator and Kethis, the Hidden Hand. The way the combo works is the deck plays Mox Amber, mills itself for two, adds one mana, and then plays the other Mox Amber from the graveyard with Kethis, the Hidden Hand's activated ability, and repeats this as many times as it can. The goal is to do this until it has milled the entire deck, play Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and win the game.

There are a lot of paths to get there as well. Lazav, the Multifarious functions as extra copies of both Kethis, the Hidden Hand and Diligent Excavator. Emry, Lurker of the Loch is a lot of extra self-mill, making it even more likely that the deck flips the entire library into the graveyard.

This combo can be fast, but needs some setup. What it lacks in speed some games, it makes up for with incredible resilience. Teferi, Time Raveler functions as both a legendary card to fuel Kethis, the Hidden Hand as well as a way to shut down any interaction. Cards like Grafdigger's Cage, Soul-Guide Lantern and Leyline of the Void should cause a gross amount of damage to this deck, but instead they merely buy time. Further, against most strategies that would bring in these cards, they also can board in Urza's Ruinous Blast, which removes any aggressive cards they have.

However, Kethis, the Hidden Hand doesn't have a lot of ability to sideboard anything that isn't a legendary card, and that leaves it with a lot of gaps. It also doesn't block well, it doesn't have much of a backup plan, and it can just fail to flipping too many non-legendary spells so that Kethis, the Hidden Hand can't keep chaining spells. Without a Teferi, Time Raveler in play, Kethis, the Hidden Hand is vulnerable to just being removed, and then it doesn't really… do anything. All of this means the deck is very powerful, but feeling a half-step too slow for the format. 

If you're preparing for the Open, unless you're playing this deck, it's unlikely you'll play this deck almost ever. That said, know how it works and where you can interact.

Temur Reclamation

And finally, there isn't any escaping from Wilderness Reclamation. Thankfully for everyone sick of it in Standard, it isn't much of the metagame.

This particular list comes from Mason Clark, who's been quite happy with the deck so far.

Similar to Field of the Dead, there is a lot of customizability to Temur Reclamation and I think Mason nails it for the format that exists right now. Essence Scatter is perfect for countering Muxus, Goblin Grandee, and there are a full four in the maindeck of his list, along with several sweepers to clean up the rest of Goblin's board. Just like in Standard, Temur Reclamation beats up the Sacrifice decks without even trying very hard. The other blue decks can be tricky, as they tend to have either Teferi, Time Raveler or just a pile of countermagic. But this deck most definitely has a place here.

This is the sort of archetype that I assume is going to be pretty good on day one of the Open, because it can play tools that are excellent against the aggressive best-of-one decks and still play the powerful combination of Wilderness Reclamation and Explosion, and be a bit worse on day two when the format shifts to best-of-three. As someone who doesn't play much Temur Reclamation, there are people out there better suited to building decks for the archetype, but don't you dare sleep on it.

If you're just looking for something fun and different to try, I'd encourage you to take a look at this list. Based on a deck that Amy the Amazonian streamed last week, this deck is fast and consistent. It might technically be Boros, but the deck is effectively Standard's old Selesnya Tokens lists (so no wonder I love it). The only difference is that instead of Trostani Discordant and Flower // Flourish as a way to win, the deck plays an even bigger pump effect by casting Transmogrify to turn one of the tokens into Craterhoof Behemoth. It legitimately races Goblins, beats the crap out of anyone trying to block, and has a fairly decent backup plan in the form of grindy aggro with History of Benalia and Legion's Landing

Mayhem Devil becoming more popular is a challenge, but if the deck drops in popularity, Hoofin' It will be a player in the format.
