With Historic shakeups delayed until this weekend and Standard on the back burner, now is a good time to get around to the highly requested Standard 2022 metagame breakdown.

The overwhelming presence of Throne of Eldraine and Emergent Ultimatum make it difficult to truly get into what decks survive rotation, but this past weekend saw the biggest Standard 2022 tournament to date, and the results give us early frontrunners to speculate on until Midnight Hunt previews begin in earnest:

Izzet Dragons is the most popular archetype, but the most successful by far was Mono-Green Aggro. Mono-Green has an incredible density of cheap, big bodies to apply pressure early backed up by Ranger Class and a full eight creature lands. Mono-Green Aggro dominated the top tables and doesn't need a whole lot from Midnight Hunt to stick around.

Mono-White Aggro on the other hand was a lot less exciting. The bodies are too small in the face of Izzet Dragons' removal, Mono-Green Aggro's board presence, and the efficient token generation of the sacrifice control decks. While "traditional" Dimir Control did poorly, there were several variants of control playing a learn/sacrifice package with Deadly Dispute as a card draw engine and Blood on the Snow as the sweeper of choice. These decks can bog down the board and quickly go over the top of the smaller aggressive decks that lack a high density of creature lands.

Beyond those major players there was a smattering of various multicolor aggressive decks, some ramp decks, and the quietly successful Treasure/sacrifice decks. While the sacrifice control decks lean on learn cards to bog down the board, these Treasure decks aim to jump the curve and play cards like Goldspan Dragon to get ahead, refueling with either Deadly Dispute or Showdown of the Skalds.

Standard 2022 honestly looks incredibly promising as a format. There are viable aggro, midrange, and control decks, and while the Deadly Dispute packages are everywhere, nothing gatekeeps the format in the same way that Winota, Joiner of Forces and Emergent Ultimatum did. Decks are more about packages and playstyles than singular cards, and it's a welcome change of pace.

If you're playing any Standard 2022 events before Midnight Hunt (or want to grab a deck to grind Arena dailies with that doesn't rotate), here's how I see the metagame for the remaining few weeks:

This is the best deck in the format, but not by too much. The bodies are large, Ranger Class gives you staying power against the attrition decks, and you get to play two playsets of creature lands. Sweepers are normally good against these aggressive decks with no stack interaction, but it's very easy to get in the last points of damage when the board wipes cost five or six mana.

Mono-Green Aggro even gets bonus points because unlike the Deadly Dispute decks, it's unlikely to be outmoded in any way. While there may be better card draw engines or better removal, better green creatures just means Mono-Green Aggro starts playing those instead. You'd only need to change a few cards instead of the whole deck.

Izzet Dragons is similarly Midnight Hunt-proof, as while there's certainly room for improvement, the core cards of the deck are already in place. The cards you'd upgrade would simply be the removal and countermagic since a Werewolf set isn't likely to have any new Dragons.

In the meantime this is one of the best midrange decks. It plays some of the most efficient early removal now that Heartless Act is gone, the core threats dodge most red removal and Power Word Kill, and Expressive Iteration remains one of the most efficient card advantage spells in the past decade. It's just GoodCards.dec like we're back in 2015.

These decks are really impressive, and have the most room to grow in the next few weeks. They're the least "safe" because they're built around the most efficient early game in the current context, but I really hope this is the kind of Magic we get to play with Midnight Hunt. It's been a long while since we were allowed to properly nickel-and-dime people without the threat of Edgewall Innkeeper drowning you in cards or Emergent Ultimatum invalidating the rest of the game.

While there are versions that splash white or blue, Mono-Black Control gets to play flawless mana and an incredibly efficient early game to scale into Blood on the Snow and planeswalkers. Fewer colors also means higher snow land count for Blood on the Snow itself, allowing you to more consistently reanimate Lolth, Spider Queen or Professor Onyx. If you wanted to commit to a control deck before Midnight Hunt releases, this is it.

And this isn't. Everyone is playing the game in the first three turns now. Crippling Fear is no Extinction Event, and Poison the Cup and Baleful Mastery are horrifically inefficient in the current metagame. You don't have a choice because Power Word Kill misses so many important cards, but three- and four-mana removal spells are not it.

Now this isn't to say Dimir Control will be bad after Midnight Hunt. After all, flashback is returning and that often favors bigger, slower decks. But we don't have Midnight Hunt yet, and in Standard 2022 Dimir Control lacks the tools to properly compete.

Mono-White Aggro is just a victim of the context of Standard 2022. The Deadly Dispute packages are so common that everyone is able to play to the board and block and remove your early threats. When the best control decks have eight one-drops, it's really hard to be properly aggressive.

This one may not get better with Midnight Hunt. Unlike Mono-Green Aggro, Mono-White relies on being faster than everyone else, and having a bigger card pool generally means more efficient decks. On top of that, Cave of the Frost Dragon is a lot worse than Lair of the Hydra, and maxing out on Faceless Haven is a lot less appealing when your A-plan is to cast three one-drops in the first two turns.

There are several versions of this deck, ranging from Mardu, to Jund, to full on Four-Color Sacrifice. It might even be unfair to lump together Treasure and Sacrifice, but they're almost all RBx decks playing Extus, Oriq Overlord as an additional way to convert the cheap Treasure creatures on top of Deadly Dispute. This is paired with Goldspan Dragon for a quick clock, and some decks play Showdown of the Skalds to go way over the top.

This archetype is one of the least refined, but don't let that fool you into ignoring it. Prosperous Innkeeper is a powerful card already taking over Pioneer and even sneaking into Modern. Deadly Dispute is so good that the control decks are playing it. Showdown of the Skalds only gets better when there's no threat of Emergent Ultimatum ruining your card advantage fun.

While it's very hard to predict what happens to this deck with Midnight Hunt, it's the deck with the most room to tinker and personalize in the next few weeks. If you want a powerful deck that can still be a tuning project, why not try your hand at this? WotC won't even give us more Midnight Hunt cards until Monday, might as well kill some time.

I might have shown my hand too early above, but you bet I'm taking the Treasure/sacrifice deck and tuning it up. I love midrange, and I love aristocrats-style nonsense, and this does both. I cannot believe nobody was playing Orcus, Prince of Undeath last week, as it's incredibly strong against other Deadly Dispute decks, still dodges Power Word Kill, and is an incredible mana sink late game.

Cutting all the copies of Deadly Dispute may seem a bit odd, but Deadly Dispute isn't our only sacrifice outlet and nearly everyone is competing on board early. I wanted access to Valki, God of Lies in the main as a way to go over the top and sink extra mana in game one. If your Goldspan Dragon only gets to connect once before your opponents cast Blood on the Snow, Tibalt, Cosmic Imposter is a much stronger punish than Deadly Dispute.

The sideboard acknowledges the power of Mono-Green Aggro with a swath of Burning Hands, but also I'm bringing back Sarulf, Realm Eater as an absolutely absurd mirror breaker. Against Deadly Dispute decks Sarulf gets completely out of hand and can reset the board on your terms.

While it was fun to dig into this interim Standard format, I'm incredibly impatient for Midnight Hunt previews. They gave us a hell of a teaser with the first few cards, and I can't wait to see what else is in store. The original Innistrad is right around when I first got into competitive Standard and I'm looking forward to this Innistrad format, too.

Before that happens, though, we have Jumpstart: Historic Horizons. I can't believe they made us wait two whole weeks after we had the whole set, but I can finally get my hands on it and play some games. For those with my newsletter, you've already gotten a taste of what I'm brewing. If you didn't sign up for my newsletter, you're missing some spicy content. Every week I put out exclusive content you won't want to miss like sideboard guides, deck techs and more! Don't worry, I only ever send one email a week, no spam here.

The rest of the year for Magic looks pretty good to me. Three weeks of wild west Historic and then another three of wild west Midnight Hunt Standard. Soon after that? Crimson Vow hits just before the holidays and gives us something to do on vacation. It's gonna be a fun couple of months, and I can't wait to break it all down.
