Welcome back! I know it's been a few weeks, so let's check back in on Standard before the Strixhaven Championship next week:

Oh.

Standard is almost right where we left it, with Cycling and Mono-White Aggro punishing the oversaturation of Sultai decks in the format. Dimir Rogues has been relatively successful in punishing both Mono-White Aggro and Sultai Ultimatum, but Cycling is now dominating the winners' metagame, and that's bad news for Rogues players.

Izzet Dragons remains popular in the metagame at large but has dropped out of the winners' metagame as expected. It's not a bad deck, it's just not as successful as the top tier of decks. That said, it still holds its place in the Decks to Beat because of its popularity.

Naya Adventures has fallen off sharply despite a seemingly good matchup against both Mono-White Aggro and Sultai Ultimatum. Given the lack of major tournaments this weekend the metagame may not shift until the Strixhaven Championship, but I expect Naya Adventures to pick up steam.

Gruul Adventures is the one new deck in the winners' metagame. Raphael Levy hit #1 Mythic with the initial Magda Gruul variant almost a month ago, but it's just now making a serious run at the top tier of Standard. This new variant takes advantage of Edgewall Innkeeper and Jaspera Sentinel like Naya Adventures does, but uses Magda, Brazen Outlaw and Esika's Chariot to power out Embercleave, Goldspan Dragon, or The Great Henge. Keep your eye out for this deck.

Beyond that is a smattering of "other" decks, though Rakdos Sacrifice is still teetering at the edge of viability. Temur Adventures players seem to have convinced themselves that the version with Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast is the best version, but it remains a lackluster deck. If the "regular" Temur Adventures deck isn't good enough right now, I don't think the mirror-focused version is a better choice. Mono-Red Aggro has finally fallen from grace as Mono-White Aggro and Izzet Dragons both bully Mono-Red.

While there are still quite a few decks in this list, the metagame will condense drastically as we approach the Strixhaven Championship. Decks like Izzet Dragons, Rakdos Sacrifice, and Temur Lukka are unlikely to see much play at the professional level even if they remain common in this weekend's events. By this time next week I expect people to be focused on the interplay between Sultai Ultimatum, Cycling, Mono-White Aggro, Gruul Adventures, and Dimir Rogues as they make final decisions for deck selection.

If you are still playing events this weekend (or climbing the ladder), this is where the metagame stands right now:

Cycling is still here, and it's still going to beat up everybody who thinks it's gone. You can't take those sideboard hate cards out yet. You can't take them out next week either. Or the week after. Cycling is just as strong as Sultai Ultimatum, people just like GBx more even if both decks are equally linear.

Cycling gained very little from Strixhaven, but Prismari Command is an incredible addition that allows you to trigger all your draw-two effects while also being creature removal or artifact destruction. Mono-White Aggro is incredibly popular, and blowing up their equipment (or Valkmira, Protector's Shield) and a creature at the same time is backbreaking.

Mono-White Aggro is the best aggro deck in Standard, and one of the best decks against Sultai Ultimatum. Not every version plays the Lesson package right now, but Mono-White Aggro has always had some extra sideboard space, and Reduce to Memory and Inkling Summoning are solid options. Players are also experimenting with Professor of Symbology and Sparring Regimen.

The biggest advantage of the Lesson package is the ability to grind through removal and sweepers. Right now Izzet Dragons, Sultai Ultimatum, and Dimir Rogues are all trying to beat Mono-White by clearing out enough of the board to stabilize and go over the top, and the Lesson cards allow you to apply more pressure with fewer cards.

Izzet Dragons is Fine™. The high density of cheap removal shines against aggro decks, but there isn't a matching density of win conditions. The fatal flaw of all of these midrange Izzet decks is a lack of closing power, and you're only allowed to play four Goldspan Dragon.

That said, Izzet Dragons is much better than it was in previous sets and remains popular. At least for this weekend, do not play decks that are weak to Izzet Dragons even if they have good matchups against other top decks. Wait for the hype to die down some more.

Sultai Ultimatum is currently over-represented, but it's not a bad deck. The metagame is currently suffering from persistent memory, and the lack of major events doesn't help. Sultai Ultimatum isn't strong enough to maintain this 25% metagame share, and that's okay.

Sultai is currently the focal point of the format, and it's being targeted successfully. Mono-White Aggro, Cycling, and even Gruul Adventures are more than capable of bullying Sultai Ultimatum, and those decks are all picking up in popularity. A lot of people are going to play Sultai this weekend, and they're going to have a bad time.

Dimir Rogues thrives on narrower formats and is set up to pick on midrange decks. If players stick to their guns and continue to play more Izzet Dragons and Sultai Ultimatum than they should, Dimir Rogues is set for success. Mono-White Aggro can be a tough matchup, but stock lists of Dimir Rogues are already heavily boarding Crippling Fear for the aggressive decks. Cycling, however, remains the biggest problem for Rogues, and while Test of Talents helps, it may be necessary to play narrow haymakers like Go Blank to address this matchup.

Cycling is one of the strongest decks in the format, and its predators are almost non-existent. Mono-White is no longer a nightmare matchup thanks to Prismari Command, and Archon of Absolution is an unanswerable sideboard hammer as well. The only other deck that worries me is Izzet Dragons, as they are capable of answering most of your early threats and have plenty of countermagic for Zenith Flare. That said, they're also weak to both Redcap Melee and Mystical Dispute, so postboard games will be much closer.

Curious how to sideboard a deck like this where overboarding can be fatal? Sign up for my newsletter to get access to my article a day early every week along with an exclusive sideboard guide!

* * *

We have almost two full weeks before the Strixhaven Championship, but I expect the top decks to be Cycling, Sultai Ultimatum, Mono-White Aggro, and Dimir Rogues. If Gruul Adventures continues to prove itself, it could be the dark horse deck of the event. Things are a little slow this weekend, but with decklists due early next week I expect to see a fairly different (and potentially odd) metagame in the MTGO Challenges as competitors try things out at the last minute.

The Strixhaven Championship will also feature Historic, but oddly enough that is the more explored format. Standard has been on the back burner for a number of weeks, so even with the banning of Thassa's Oracle, Historic is the more established format.

I'm looking forward to the first "Pro Tour" event we've had in a while after a bunch of League Weekends for MPL and Rivals. There's just something about professional level events with a wide field that I really enjoy. The hidden gem decks, the win-and-in feature matches, and the truly massive amount of data we get. Soon we'll get to see the best decks from the best players on the biggest stage we can get until paper events return.

Less than two weeks to go. See you next week!
