Another week, another Winners' Metagame with Gruul at the top:

Gruul Aggro continues to be incredibly successful despite being the most popular deck in the format. Of the seven Standard decks at the Zendikar Rising Championship that went X-1 or better, five were Gruul Aggro. Gruul Aggro had multiple copies in every Top 8 this weekend.

Gruul Aggro is the best deck in the format despite its weaknesses, and while there are legitimate reasons to play other decks, players need to stop dismissing Gruul as "low skill" or "inflexible." Through every single metagame shift, Gruul Aggro has maintained a high win rate even on weeks where it's being heavily targeted. The lists change every week as the format churns, but Gruul Aggro has kept its #1 slot. You don't have to play Gruul, but you do have to respect it.

Mono-Green Food has cemented itself as the best anti-Gruul deck, and Esper Doom is the only deck with a good matchup against both Mono-Green Food and Gruul Aggro. Dimir Rogues was rebuilt to beat Mono-Green Food and still crushes Temur Ramp, but had a subpar result in every event except the Zendikar Rising Championship. Dimir Control had the same issue, and had a losing record on the weekend against Gruul Aggro, Mono-Green Food, and Temur Ramp.

Without major tournaments in Standard for the next two weeks, I expect the metagame to adjust slightly to this weekend's results and then stabilize while we wait for the next big event. Gruul Aggro is likely to spike in popularity, Mono-Green Food will hold its second place position to prey on the best deck, and Esper Doom will try to beat both. Other decks will likely fall in popularity but not enough to make Gruul a bad choice. Mono-Green and Esper will both be unfavorable matchups for Gruul, but those two decks won't combine to be more than 50% of the metagame, and Gruul itself can adjust for these matchups.

No shame in playing the best deck, nothing wrong with playing an aggro deck. Punish people for their tendency to try beating the best deck instead of playing it.

Autumn and their team crushed this event, and people copying this list had a lot of success. The maindeck copies of Embereth Shieldbreaker are excellent against Mono-Green Food, and the sideboard is well-prepared for the control decks.

Take the time to learn the mirror this week, you're going to be seeing a lot of it.

Mono-Green Food is the best deck to play if you're one of the people who refuses to play Gruul Aggro and you want to beat it instead. The matchup isn't a slam dunk, however, and I recommend taking the time to learn the matchup. Both Gruul and Mono-Green can have drastically different plans depending on which side is on the play, and knowing the lines makes just as big a difference as sideboard configuration.

If you do choose to sleeve up Mono-Green this weekend, be wary of the diehard Rogues players as well as Esper Doom. Mono-Green players have been trimming on Trail of Crumbs to better address the metagame, but as Esper Doom returns so should the fourth copy of Trail of Crumbs.

Dimir Rogues continues to suffer against Gruul Aggro, but it has the potential to pick on the other decks in the format. While it suffered against Esper Doom this weekend, Dimir Rogues has excelled in that matchup with previous configurations. If Dimir Rogues can recover that matchup with a few copies of Skyclave Shade without sacrificing the Mono-Green Food matchup I think Dimir Rogues has a lot of potential.

Esper Doom is a deck I've disparaged heavily in the past few weeks, but the recent configurations have finally achieved a good matchup against both Gruul Aggro and Mono-Green Food. As the only deck in Standard that beats both of the top tier decks, Esper Doom is clearly a deck to pay attention to. If you're playing Gruul or Mono-Green you should adjust your list to address Esper Doom.

I just want to play the best deck in the format and adjust it for the new context. I want to be set up a little bit better for mirrors and have access to Garruk's Harbinger against the black decks. It's possible I should still be playing all four copies of Embercleave, but I wanted access to more maindeck removal in the mirror as well as against Rogues.

While there aren't any major Standard events this weekend, we're still in a brand new ladder season and a lot of people will have extra spare time coming up. Getting Mythic before everyone has their holiday break might be a good idea, and Gruul Aggro is a great deck for ladder. Stay safe, stay warm, stay home, and I'll see you next week!
