If you haven't played Pioneer lately, let's just say the format has been changing quite quickly.

We had a major event featuring the Pioneer format last weekend, in the Magic Online Championships (MOCS). I'm going to go over those results, including some of the top decks from the event, and talk about where I think the format currently stands. I think of Pioneer as similar to Modern in that there are a wide variety of strategies, and the format includes plenty of combo-based decks.

Oops All Spells

In fact, some of the same combo decks that are good in Modern port over to Pioneer quite nicely. The Oops All Spells deck is a new entry to the format with Zendikar Rising, and one that many players have been gravitating towards lately. Matti Kuisma scored a Top 4 in the MOCS on the back of his take on the archetype.

Buy This Card! https://shop.tcgplayer.com/magic/iconic-masters/balustrade-spy

This deck has the same enablers as the Modern version, as both Balustrade Spy and Undercity Informer aim to mill your entire deck. The new spell/lands in Zendikar Rising provide enough mana sources, without actually needing "real lands."

The reason you need to play green here is in the Modern version you get access to Pentad Prism to fix any colored mana issues that might come up. There is also no Simian Spirit Guide, so playing mana acceleration in the form of creatures that also fix your mana makes a lot of sense in Pioneer. Sylvan Caryatid and Paradise Druid fill the role nicely, and even Tangled Florahedron may be worth casting on turn two, if the other two creatures aren't available.

This version also chooses to pay Neoform and Eldritch Evolution, and since the mana is Sultai-based, you can try to cast these to provide more redundancy in finding Balustrade Spy or Undercity Informer. Normally the creature you find is going to be Undercity Informer, after sacrificing one of your two-mana creatures. By having Neoform and Eldritch Evolution in the deck it's almost like having sixteen cards that when you cast them, you win the game. There is even room to play four copies of Thoughtseize in the maindeck to nab any interaction the opponent might have.

The key difference though is that you don't just automatically win the same turn you mill your library into the graveyard. This deck often requires another turn to get the job done. The copies of Creeping Chill aren't always enough to end the game right away, so sometimes you need to rely on Prized Amalgam and Silversmote Ghoul coming back from the graveyard, and then because Worldspine Wurm gets shuffled back into your deck, there will be a card or two left in your deck for the following turn. There are certainly issues with this plan though, as it opens you up to more hate, like graveyard disruption beating you. It also gives opposing combo decks another turn to try and beat you.

To sum it up, this deck is able to find an Undercity Informer or Balustrade Spy fairly easily, but sometimes that won't be enough depending on what type of interaction the opponent can present. Even a card like Scavenging Ooze is a massive problem for this deck, let alone a Leyline of the Void.

Burn

It's kind of crazy to say that Burn is at the top of the Pioneer metagame, but it is. The deck is really strong, and so consistent. The curve is super low, so you are going to present a quick clock that the opponent has to respect.

Oliver Tiu isn't known for casting burn spells, so you know when he chooses to play it for a big event the deck must be good.

The deck has more creatures than one might typically associate with a burn deck, but that means you are that much more likely to start the game with a threat, and can back that up with burn later. There is a Wizard theme here, as many of the best red aggressive creatures happen to be Wizards, and then of course you get to play Wizard's Lightning as a Pioneer-legal alternative to Lightning Bolt.

As far as gameplay, this deck is fairly straightforward, and one I would recommend for someone looking to jump into the Pioneer format. Recently we have seen a trend of adding the white splash, rather than be straight mono-red, and Boros Charm is a lot of bang for your buck here. In the sideboard, Chained to the Rocks is a great one-mana removal spell to have against other creature-based decks. Cards like Eidolon of the Great Revel and Roiling Vortex after sideboard make it really tough for decks trying to play a longer game or combo you out.

Mono-Green Planeswalkers

Mono-Green Planeswalkers is the archetype Michael Jacob played to a first place finish in the MOCS, and is another top strategy in Pioneer. Many MOCS players gravitated toward it as a choice, as this is the best devotion-based deck in the format.

At one point, Oath of Nissa was banned in Pioneer, but now that it's back in action the deck has had a major resurgence. Being a mono-colored deck definitely has its perks, as the mana is squeaky clean, while allowing for the inclusion of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

The reason why it's not called Mono-Green Devotion anymore is the sheer number of planeswalkers. This is where the power of the deck comes from: getting a planeswalker out quickly. The deck always wants to have a turn-one mana accelerant, as that allows you to get your planeswalkers going a turn early, which is a massive deal. I don't mind mulliganing aggressively to find Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic, especially in matchups where the opponent doesn't have much early removal.

Burning-Tree Emissary is a way to fuel your devotion, and gives the deck some additional explosiveness. Optimally you play another card the turn you cast it, like Wolfwillow Haven, or maybe even Llanowar Visionary on turn two, if your first play was a mana creature.

This deck isn't trying to do anything too tricky, all of its plays are essentially permanents that go directly into play, so it's very clear what it's doing. The main thing to be aware of is what cards are in its sideboard, because Karn, the Great Creator and Vivien, Arkbow Ranger provide you with access to a nice toolbox. In fact, because the sideboard is essentially all artifacts to grab off Karn, you know that Mono-Green Planeswalkers won't be doing much sideboarding at all. The nice thing is that all the cards are proactive plays, so there will never be a card that you absolutely need to take out in a matchup.

Sultai Midrange

Sultai Midrange may have been the most surprising deck to come out of the MOCS, simply because it exceeded everyone's expectations. We saw Joel Larsson take down a Players Tour with Sultai Delirium, but since then it definitely fell out of favor. Multiple MOCS competitors decided to pick it back up though, with Logan Nettles doing the best with it, after his second place finish. If you want to make use of Traverse the Ulvenwald, this is the deck for you:

Very reminiscent of Green-Black Delirium from its days in Standard, Sultai Midrange really wants to put cards in its graveyard. Not only will this help fuel delirium, but it also allows you to escape Uro quickly. If you are looking to play Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath in Pioneer this might be the best home for it. This deck is able to generate a lot of value as the game goes on, so it really wants to be playing against decks that aren't doing anything too unfair.

Ishkanah, Grafwidow can be found off Traverse the Ulvenwald, and does a great job at gumming up the board, making it very difficult for the opponent to get through. Emrakul, the Promised End is another silver bullet you can play, though Logan has opted to put it in his sideboard, as it's really only important in the slower matchups. This is definitely the deck to play if you are a die-hard midrange player.

Sultai Reclamation

Most players think of Reclamation decks as Temur-based, but in Pioneer, Sultai is the most popular flavor of Reclamation. If there was an archetype that didn't do as well as many players thought it would in the MOCS, this would probably be it. Often considered to be one of the top three decks in the format, Sultai Reclamation is able to use all the extra mana Wilderness Reclamation provides, while also touching into black for removal. Toni Ramis Pascaul finished in the Top 16 with the archetype:

Notice all the cards with cycling in the deck. Cycling is something you can do at any time, which is helpful with Wilderness Reclamation in play, but also allows you to churn through your deck and put cards in the graveyard to fuel Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath.

You don't need Expansion // Explosion in order to lock up games with Wilderness Reclamation. Chemister's Insight allows this deck to draw enough cards later in games to put the opponent away through sheer card advantage. In the end though, I don't think many would have expected Sultai Midrange to outperform Sultai Reclamation.

Conclusions

Pioneer is a "pick em" format right now, where there really are a number of viable strategies. In fact, it's tough to pick a number one deck in the format, and that's a good thing. It means you can pick up one of the top decks and feel like not everyone is specifically trying to target what you are playing. The format is in a healthy spot at the moment, so I don't expect we will see any major changes taking place in the next month or two.

It's possible the hype on some decks like Sultai Reclamation was a bit overblown. It's nice to see decks that are somewhat off the radar see play, and do well. Oops All Spells is one I'm not sure many players were expecting as often it's considered to be tier 2. I'm worried that if players do start to respect the deck more moving forward it will become more difficult for it to do well, because of how vulnerable it can be to certain hate cards.

If you are wondering if Pioneer is in a good place, the answer is yes. Don't feel too much pressure in terms of what deck you choose, it's more important to feel comfortable piloting it, since there are so many good choices right now.
