After an incredible performance at the 2020 Grand Finals, Omnath Adventures was well and truly banned out.

Omnath is gone, Adventure shells were hit incredibly hard, and Wizards of the Coast made sure that ramp decks were well and truly dead by banning Escape to the Wilds as well. The resulting format has been very hard to sort out, as the power points of the previous format are largely gone.

The early frontrunners have been Mono-Red Aggro and Gruul Adventures as aggressive decks, as well as Dimir Rogues and Rakdos Midrange as the decks with the removal to prey on them. Without a well-defined metagame, control strategies have fallen short, but I fully expect them to be a player in the metagame as we move forward.

My own explorations in the new format have led me to a couple of key conclusions about what matters and what doesn't in these early stages.

3 Takeaways for Post-Omnath Standard

The aggressive decks are consistent and powerful, and while you can beat them if you commit to it, you do need to commit to it. Removal spells are better than they've been in months, and while Hagra Mauling is tempting, the inefficiency gets punished as the aggressive decks are built around cheap threats and play plenty of basic lands.

Midrange decks, especially Rakdos Midrange, are powerful players in the metagame. Pairing removal with strong threats is a recipe for success in this nascent format as many players are bringing unrefined decks to the ladder. We've also seen Selesnya Midrange with an Adventures package, a counters package, or both, as a proactive archetype able to play Skyclave Apparition and Maul of the Skyclaves to ensure its oversized threats connect. This reinforces my belief that removal is one of the most important aspects of the format, but because these midrange decks are so threat-dense, you need to pair that removal with card advantage or inevitability.

This leads to the last lesson of this new format: engines. Because these games are getting scrappier, you want more resources to fight with. Edgewall Innkeeper, Lurrus of the Dream-Den, Slitherwisp, Into the Story, and Mazemind Tome are the most popular engine cards at the moment, but Felidar Retreat and the mutate mechanic both are powerful engines looking for homes. Once people are safely surviving the aggro decks, the next step will be to beat the other midrange decks. I expect to see that arms race ramp up over the next few days.

7 Decklists for Post-Omnath Standard

I won't leave you without a pile of decklists, as one of the most important parts of an early format is finding the established starting points so you're not starting from scratch.

Very little has changed in this deck so far, but very little has had to. It's a strong deck capable of removing a few threats and closing the game. I don't expect this deck to last in the long term though, as the metagame it was designed for no longer exists. Spot removal is a lot more common and no longer limited to Spikefield Hazard and Bonecrusher Giant.

As other decks' average card quality goes up in this arms race, I expect Rakdos Midrange to suffer. A large amount of the deck's power is concentrated in Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger and Bonecrusher Giant and very little else.

Emma Handy's version of Gruul Adventures has been a popular choice, though as noted with Mono-Green Aggro, Gemrazer has lost its best target. I do think Gruul Adventures will remain a staple of the format, however, because it has an excellent combination of aggression and card advantage.

While Selesnya Midrange is the least established archetype in this list, it has put up good ladder results thus far. Fellow TCGplayer author Nick Prince popularized this list, taking advantage of Selesnya's oversized creatures alongside Maul of the Skyclaves and Skyclave Apparition. While the removal isn't the most impressive, the deck does get results. I expect to see this refined over the coming weeks, but the archetype may get dropped if the other midrange decks are able to go over the top.

I've played several, uh, inventive piles in exploring this new format, but with the lessons learned I do think Mono-Black Devotion is well positioned. It has efficient removal and card advantage while threatening a powerful endgame in Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Agadeem's Awakening. With both Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath and Omnath, Locus of Creation out of the picture, life totals are a lot more finite, and draining opponents out is a perfectly viable win condition.

* * *

This new Standard format still looks wide open, and we have big events every weekend for the foreseeable future. This weekend we have CFBPro Showdown, next week is Redbull's Week of Wings, and at the end of the month we have the recently announced Arena Open. I expect to see a lot of innovation over the next week or so with the metagame stabilizing during Redbull's Week of Wings qualifiers. We'll have results from Magic Online's tournaments each weekend as well, and with the recent bans I expect the attendance of all of these events to increase.

What's working for you? What isn't? Feel free to throw any decklists you think deserved to be on this list to me over on Twitter, and I'll see you next week!
