Innistrad: Crimson Vow is here, and the Standard is… not as different as it should be. Before Crimson Vow, the top decks were Mono-White Aggro, Mono-Green Aggro, Izzet Epiphany, and Izzet Dragons. Now the top decks are:

Huh, that's almost exactly the same, just with Hullbreaker Horror replacing Goldspan Dragon. Now to be fair, it's only the first weekend and all the decks below the big four are pretty different. There's some hard control decks, a few tribal decks, some new tempo decks, and a singleton The Book of Exalted Deeds deck. There may have been card availability issues, especially on Magic Online where there are a few Draft bugs. Additionally, the set was supposed to release on Thursday, but Arena had an extended maintenance period to resolve some matchmaking issues.

While the Standard metagame looks almost unchanged at a glance, it's very early in Crimson Vow—and even then, the decks themselves have changed quite a bit. Mono-Green Aggro has a real one-drop, Mono-White Aggro got a ton of great tools including Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, and Izzet decks got Stormcarved Coast and Hullbreaker Horror. The map may look the same, but the landscape has changed.

Crimson Vow Standard is one of the more brutally efficient Standard environments we've had in a few years. The aggressive decks are incredibly consistent and demand your answers be cheap and efficient. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Snakeskin Veil make playing a reactive game difficult, and both Mono-White Aggro and Mono-Green Aggro are more than capable of playing a longer game. One of the big reasons Hullbreaker Horror is so powerful despite being so expensive is that it just wins the game if you untap with it, and the best cards to synergize with it are the cheap answers the metagame already demands of you.

That said, Alrund's Epiphany is still the finisher of choice for the majority of Izzet decks. It can come online earlier than Hullbreaker Horror and is less vulnerable to removal spells and Elite Spellbinder. Galvanic Iteration is a lot less powerful into Thalia, Guardian of Thraben specifically, but otherwise doubling up cheap removal spells like Demon Bolt and Fading Hope is a way to catch back up against the aggro decks. While I do think the Hullbreaker decks are here to stay, they'll need some time to get more tuned up, while the Alrund's Epiphany decks are already established.

Now, before I get into this week's metagame predictions I want to warn you that there will be a lot of testing, tuning, and iteration between the writing of this article and any tournaments this weekend. This is the period of Standard where the metagame moves the fastest, so make sure to keep an eye on Twitter, Twitch, and wherever else you collect your decklists. Here's where I see the metagame heading with the information we have now:

Without a doubt, Mono-White Aggro is the litmus test of Standard. If you can't handle Thalia and friends, fix your deck. These decks aren't bullied by just Cinderclasm anymore either. Between 2-toughness one-drops, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, and Luminarch Aspirant, things can get frustratingly out of reach just in time.

If you want to bully Mono-White Aggro it may be time to reach back to Frost Bite. The difference between one and two mana against Mono-White Aggro is bigger than it's ever been, and the ability to scale up helps a lot.

Mono-White Aggro is the strongest deck in Standard right now, and while it'll have a target on its head I think the deck is now strong enough to survive that. Mono-White Aggro has plenty of options for week-to-week tuning and will absolutely reward archetype mastery. Aggro players rejoice, your time is now.

The other litmus test of the format. Where Mono-White Aggro demands cheap removal, Mono-Green Aggro demands more powerful, narrow removal. Mono-Green Aggro has some of the biggest bodies in the format (except for Hullbreaker Horror, of course) and it can now start the game on turn one. Board wipes used to be one of the strongest effects against Mono-Green, but now the deck finally has a real haste threat in Ulvenwald Oddity and doesn't have to stretch to Froghemoth.

The most taxing part of all of this is Snakeskin Veil protecting their threats. If you don't answer every threat on curve (or if they've simply made enough land drops) they can threaten to blow out your removal spell for way less than you paid for it. If you plan to play anything reactive this week, grab your testing partner and play against Mono-Green until you're comfortable with the new dynamic. This deck isn't as slow or clunky as it was before, and it plays incredibly well into opposing answers.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. While the answer suite needs to be tuned up and many lists are including a few copies of Hullbreaker Horror, Izzet Epiphany still has the most unanswerable late game. There's simply very little in Magic that beats three-plus turns in a row.

This is the premier control deck in the format. While it plays much closer to something like Splinter Twin than an old school Azorius Control deck, the goal is to answer opposing threats and set up for an unassailable late game. Fading Hope and Demon Bolt are some of the best answers right now, second only to winning the game. Alrund's Epiphany is incredibly hard to interact with, and the decks that can do so profitably have a difficult time with the aggro decks.

The most successful builds have all incorporated Unexpected Windfall and The Celestus to get to Hullbreaker Horror mana earlier. Untapping with Hullbreaker Horror essentially wins the game, so the goal is to do that as soon as possible. Beyond that, Fading Hope is the cheapest and least conditional removal spell, but also the least permanent. Cinderclasm is showing up maindeck because of how prevalent Mono-White Aggro is, and Prismari Command is the weakest removal spell but it also generates Treasures and has alternate modes.

This is the archetype that will change the most over the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled for any new tech. Let's be honest, any and all tech we discover will show up on Fireshoes's Twitter, so you should follow him if you haven't already.

Werewolves decks did okay, and Orzhov Clerics performed surprisingly well, but tribal decks as a whole aren't cutting it. There's just not enough actual payoff for playing such a narrow range of threats. The cards in Standard right now are incredibly powerful and efficient, so you need a really good reason to play an aggressive deck that doesn't use the best cards.

Orzhov Clerics was the closest, as it uses Pyre of Heroes to play a longer, more consistent game and has access to strong interaction in its colors. That said, unless you're chaining copies of Elite Spellbinder it can be hard to close the game before you're outscaled. These decks are all neat, but I'm not seeing something worthwhile yet.

Hullbreaker Horror just got printed and it's kind of a nightmare for control. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben just got printed and it's kind of a nightmare for control. Ulvenwald Oddity just got printed and—you get the idea. A narrow metagame sounds like a great place to play control because you can pick the best answers, but the most powerful strategies in Standard don't have clean answers right now.

It's telling that the most popular control deck right now plays a bunch of Divide by Zero and Lier, Disciple of the Drowned, and the most successful control deck of the weekend played four Graveyard Trespasser. You need to get a little weird to play control right now, and you absolutely need Soul Shatter in your deck. I really don't recommend playing hard control this week, though.

I played Izzet Dragons this past week, and it's possible it can be salvaged. But it feels like you need to answer a lot right now, and the ways decks are addressing the format also hurt you. Vanishing Verse, Soul Shatter, and Elite Spellbinder are all a huge pain, and while Dragon's Fire is incredibly efficient, you can only play four. Moving forward I think Izzet Dragons needs to play more one-mana interaction, but that hurts it against the bigger decks in the metagame.

I do think Syncopate, Manaform Hellkite, and Stormcarved Coast are all incredible additions for this deck, but right now is not its time. Wait a week and see where we're at so we can tune the deck accordingly and appropriately tempo out our opponents.

Temur Midrange and Jund Midrange are both fairly reasonable decks, but just outside the top tier. This is about where they were last set, but this time Jund Midrange is slightly ahead. Infernal Grasp, Go Blank, Ray of Enfeeblement, and Soul Shatter are all excellent cards right now, and Duress and Dread Fugue cover you against the Izzet decks. Also the mana is just way better than last set. These are my dark horse decks for the week.

No shame in putting people to the test. Mono-White Aggro is one of the decks people prepared for last weekend, and that didn't stop it from dominating. The aggressive cards are good, the removal spells and Fiend Hunter cards are good, the disruptive cards are good. The deck is the best it's been in Standard for years, and I'm just gonna jam the best deck this week. Ask hard questions and force people to have the answers.

91a50cfc-3350-450e-b8ed-ec8421e35067

Crimson Vow hasn't shaken up the metagame chart, but the games themselves are full of powerful new cards. Games can end abruptly, but every game is full of important decisions. Standard remains a very good tournament format right now, and I still want to see more coverage from both WotC and third party tournament organizers. Standard is at a great power level with lots of options for every deck, and it's a shame we don't get to see more of it at a high level.
