STANDARD IS BACK.

With the return of the SCGTour Online and results of the first few weeks of MTGO Challenges, Standard is about to make a real comeback. In the coming weeks we're likely to see a lot of churn in the metagame thanks to the influx of tournaments and data. Here's our starting point:

Sultai Ultimatum hasn't left the top spot, but the reasons for that are shifting. With the meteoric rise of Mono-Green Aggro, interacting early and often has become incredibly important. Rakdos Sacrifice may suffer against Sultai Ultimatum but it packs plenty of interaction against the creature-based decks. On the other hand, countermagic-heavy decks and decks relying on red removal are suffering against so many large creatures.

This metagame shift ironically swings Sultai Ultimatum back around from overplayed and exploitable to well-positioned. It has the requisite spot removal to tackle Mono-Green Aggro, it annihilates Rakdos Sacrifice, and its biggest predators are being shoved out. Mono-Red Aggro and Cycling have a hard time answering the curve of Mono-Green Aggro, while Mono-Green's fight spells are incredibly efficient in those matchups.

While the rest of the metagame has to adjust to this new pillar of the format, Sultai Ultimatum gets to play the same game it's been playing for a year now. The only thing stopping Sultai from loading up on spot removal and calling it a day is, well, itself. The mirror is still going to be the most common matchup, and Sultai Ultimatum can't afford to dedicate all its flex spots to anti-aggro.

With Sultai Ultimatum pricing out other midrange decks and Mono-Green Aggro deterring countermagic-heavy decks, where does the metagame go from here? I hate to say it, but Temur Lukka is one of this week's top decks.

Public enemy number 1. Pick it up, learn the mirror, do well. The MTGO metagame has been slow to adopt changes and new cards, but make sure you're replacing Eliminate with Power Word Kill. There are no commonly played three-mana planeswalkers, and it hits all of the same early game creatures while also scaling better. It also covers the weaknesses of Heartless Act in a lot of spots which is important against Ranger Class.

This first weekend of satellites will likely see heavy play as people are hungry for the invite to a big paper event, and Sultai Ultimatum will be the most popular deck as well as the safest bet. Learn the mirror and the basic Emergent Ultimatum piles and you'll have a solid weekend.

What Mono-Green Aggro lacks in speed it makes up for in body size. The creatures are all enormous, and between The Great Henge, Werewolf Pack Leader, and Ranger Class there's a never-ending stream of threats. While Bonecrusher Giant has bullied creature decks for nearly two years now, it's almost embarrassing against Mono-Green.

There's nothing fancy about this deck, and there doesn't have to be. Mono-Green Aggro is the second best deck in the format behind Sultai Ultimatum, and used to be popular as a cheaper option alongside Mono-Red Aggro. This new version is shockingly close to all rares and mythics, which means we may see less of it this first weekend as many players will play archetypes they already own and decks like Sultai Ultimatum or Mono-Red Aggro only need commons or uncommons from AFR.

Rakdos Sacrifice over the past few sets has been a polarized deck. When the metagame is full of Dimir Rogues and green creature decks, Rakdos Sacrifice excels. However, Sultai Ultimatum has kept it from being a top tier deck for most of its lifetime. While I can't say I recommend Rakdos Sacrifice, it's an undoubtedly popular deck and that should shape your deck selection and tuning.

A bad Rakdos Sacrifice matchup is by no means disqualifying, but you should have attrition tools that don't rely on creatures sticking on board. Enchantment engines in particular (e.g. Trail of Crumbs) are nearly impossible for Rakdos to remove. Rakdos Sacrifice doesn't have card advantage or a fast clock, so if you can survive the initial resource trades at more than 10 life, you can take over with card advantage of your own.

I hate to say it, but Temur Lukka is finally well-positioned. It has the early game interaction to handle aggressive decks, card advantage to fight Rakdos Sacrifice, and countermagic to trump Sultai Ultimatum. By no means is it the best deck in any of these categories, but it's the only deck that checks all these boxes.

On top of that, Mono-Green Aggro has a pretty hard time fighting through Koma, Cosmos Serpent, so Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast is capable of quickly walling off their offense before generating a bunch of cards. I don't recommend playing this deck without practice, but it looks incredibly well-positioned for this weekend.

Cycling is still a great deck capable of bullying the unprepared, but right now Stock Sultai™ plays two Elspeth's Nightmare and two Kaervek, the Spiteful. On top of that, Mono-Green Aggro is a nightmare matchup full of trample threats and one-mana ways to remove Irencrag Pyromancer.

I will always endorse Cycling when the time is right, but the metagame right now is too hateful.

In last week's metagame breakdown I hyped up Mono-Red Aggro on the back of Burning Hands, but I'm not sure it's enough against Mono-Green Aggro. On top of that, the presence of Mono-Green Aggro has caused a spike in spot removal, leaving Mono-Red Aggro in a rough spot.

A few diehards will still register Mono-Red Aggro this weekend and do well, but with its current positioning I recommend against it.

Naya Adventures might not even be the best Adventures shell right now, but decks like Rakdos Sacrifice can't fight a war of attrition in the face of Showdown of the Skalds and Edgewall Innkeeper. Bonecrusher Giant may have lost some efficacy with the rise of Mono-Green Aggro, but the stock of Giant Killer has risen to compensate. Naya Adventures is still a very real deck and just another reason I don't recommend Rakdos Sacrifice right now.

For the first week back I'm not going to get too fancy. Since this is SCG's return weekend and they're advertising an in-person invitation for qualifying players, the field is going to be large and it's going to be wide. Sultai is the best deck in the format right now, and my version is just tuned a bit for the mirror. The Tarrasque is a powerful threat in mirrors and gives you game-ending Emergent Ultimatum piles for anyone low on life.

Go Blank is the anti-Cycling sideboard tech I will continue to preach until people listen, and Mazemind Tome is standard card advantage tech to get under in mirrors and countermagic matchups. Test of Talents is narrower countermagic for the mirror that also hits Cycling harder. Much of this list is lifted from AndyAwkward's list above, but I believe Eliminate to be outmoded and I want additional spot removal maindeck in this metagame.

My newsletter subscribers know this already because they got my full sideboard guide on Wednesday. If you want access to all my tech and articles a day early, sign up for my newsletter!

* * *

It's exciting to get an announcement for our first big paper event as well as the return of the SCGTour Online. This is the level of event we needed to breathe fresh life into Standard and get people interested in the format again. These tournaments will give us the data and metagame churn we need, and I'm looking forward to getting back to the grind and seeing if I can't snag a spot at the Invitational. Stay safe out there, and I'll see you next week!
