It's time to stop trying to be smarter than the people playing the best deck. Just play Temur Reclamation.

MTG-Meta-Breakdown

This weekend we had three premier events: Red Bull Untapped International Qualifier III, SCG Tour Online Championship Qualifier #4, and SCG Tour Online Season One Championship. The above chart is the metagame breakdown for the Top 32 of each event. 

In all three events, Temur Reclamation had the highest win rate of any deck that was 5% of the field or more, and it wasn't close. Temur Reclamation is the best deck in Standard. Period.

Bant Ramp, the deck everyone thought to be too strong for Standard, continued to perform poorly. Despite being the second most popular deck, Bant Ramp won just half its matches. Mono-Green Aggro did even worse. Both Sacrifice variants had mediocre weekends.

Is there anything that can save us from the Wilderness Reclamation menace besides Wilderness Reclamation with Teferi, Time Raveler? Well, maybe. Mono-White Aggro had a breakout weekend in the hands of Hoshi Yuki. Temur Reclamation is not built to handle a slew of one-drops efficiently, and Venerated Loxodon isn't vulnerable to Aether Gust or Mystical Dispute. But that's just the current builds of Temur Reclamation. I don't expect Mono-White Aggro to stick around if Reclamation pilots just sideboard a few Flame Sweep and wildly swing the matchup.

This is the face of Standard right now. Get used to it. Temur Reclamation has the most powerful endgame in the format and the best tools to survive the early game. Red removal, blue countermagic, and Aether Gust buy time for the tried-and-true combo of Wilderness Reclamation plus @@@@@card:Expansion // Explosion@@@@@.

Yuuki Ichikawa's list is very clearly tuned to beat mirrors, and he was rewarded with a first place finish. Commence the Endgame, three Negate, only two Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath. This list is where I would start for the current metagame, as Temur Reclamation that beats Temur Reclamation is the place to be right now.

Flame Sweep

The big place for change is I'd want to play two to three copies of Flame Sweep to address the rise in Mono-White Aggro and Mardu Knights. These decks are definitely manageable, but Flame Sweep makes it much easier to handle a swarm of one-drops, especially on the draw.

Teferi, Time Raveler

It's Temur Reclamation, but with Teferi, Time Raveler. That's where we're at in the metagame. White also opens up the sideboard with options like Justice Strike, Solar Blaze and Kenrith, the Returned King, but Teferi, Time Raveler is the big reason people are splashing.

There's no question that this version of Wilderness Reclamation is more powerful, but the cost in consistency is high. In order to make the mana work, Four-Color Reclamation plays twice the number of tapped lands and far fewer utility lands. Blast Zone is a powerful tool to lose access to, and rougher mana means a higher fail rate. The tradeoff is worth it against Temur Reclamation, but costs you against aggressive decks, especially the one-drop focused decks. 

I think for small field events Four-Color Reclamation is the best choice if you expect a majority of players to be on Wilderness Reclamation. For a larger field I recommend sticking with Temur Reclamation. People will continue to find any excuse to play something besides Temur Reclamation, and Mono-White Aggro is a fresh new excuse. 

Decks People Will Play, but Shouldn't

Everything Else

This might sound pretty flippant, but having done these analyses for the past few weeks I simply cannot ignore the data. Temur Reclamation is the most successful deck in the format, and dominated for two weeks in a row with an absurd metagame share. If you're playing in a tournament you should be playing Wilderness Reclamation

The other decks in the format are still fairly reasonable, but the gap between Temur Reclamation and everything else is large. Why play one of the 50-51% win rate decks when Temur Reclamation had a 54% win rate despite being 40% of the field?

New kid on the block, Mono-White Aggro had a first place finish this weekend. Hoshi Yuki's list is incredibly linear but got the job done against Temur Reclamation, Four-Color Reclamation and Bant Ramp. I don't think its success is sustainable, but Mono-White Aggro will likely see a spike in play for this weekend.

As I mentioned above, people will look for any excuse to play something besides the best deck, and Mono-White Aggro is an attractive one. People have been dying for a good aggro deck and Mono-Green Aggro doesn't seem to be cutting it anymore. Aether Gust is just too prevalent right now. Mono-White Aggro dodges the prevalent hate cards in the format and goes under the interaction being played. 

As good as Mono-White Aggro sounds, Flame Sweep is still the bane of its existence. The reason Mono-White Aggro is succeeding right now is a hole in the format, but the best deck can patch that up with a sideboard card that's not even novel. Flame Sweep has been in and out of Temur Reclamation's sideboard for a long while, and adjusting the best deck by two cards isn't a huge deal.

Isn't this just the winning list with two Flame Sweeps? Yup. I took out a pair of cards for the Mono-Green Aggro matchup to address the new Mono-Color Aggro fad. And that's what it is, honestly. Much like Mono-Black Aggro and Mono-Green Aggro, Mono-White Aggro will be really popular for a week and then die off when the metagame adjusts. 

I still want game one in the mirror to be favorable, I want maindeck answers to Teferi, Time Raveler, and I want Blast Zone. Yuuki Ichikawa's list is incredibly well built, and I don't have the reps to think I can rebuild it better than he did. If you plan to do the smart thing and play Temur Reclamation this week, I highly recommend checking out his VODs on Twitch; he's even sorted them by round and matchup in this collection.

Standard has been rapidly shifting for the past few weeks, but it looks like it's finally starting to settle out. It's clear that Temur Reclamation is the best deck in the format, and it currently doesn't seem to have any predators. Whoever finds the next gap in the deck will be rewarded with a nice finish like Hoshi Yuki, but I don't expect it to last. You can snipe individual weekends and take the trophy, but you can't take the crown away from Temur Reclamation. Standard has a new champion.
