World Championship XXVII has ended, and we have our new world champion!

When the format narrows down to just three decks, a tempo-centric midrange deck suddenly becomes a very good call, especially when you're as experienced a tempo mage as Yuta Takahashi.

While many (myself included) were worried that Standard would quickly become a one-deck format, it's really shaping up as a solid four-deck format with a few lower-tier contenders. For a five-set Standard, that's really not bad, and this format plays out much better in a tournament setting compared to the Arena ladder.

Izzet Epiphany is a lot like Splinter Twin, in that you're playing for time in order to set up Galvanic Iteration with Alrund's Epiphany, and once you've done that the game is sealed. While this can be a frustrating experience over and over on ladder, at higher levels of play the back-and-forth gameplay and intricate decision making are challenging and rewarding. With Crimson Vow lurking on the horizon, we've got a stable metagame, but not a stale one:

Izzet Epiphany, Mono-White Aggro, Mono-Green Aggro, Izzet Dragons. There are the top tier of decks in Standard and are likely to remain so until Crimson Vow arrives on November 11. Temur Midrange sits just below the top tier and puts up reasonable results, notably taking second at Worlds in the hands of Jean-Emmanuel Depraz. Decks like Azorius Control, Dimir Control, and Azorius Tempo have cult followings, but none of these have the results to really back up their popularity.

While Izzet Epiphany and Mono-Green Aggro are the two strongest decks in the format in a vacuum, tournaments aren't played in a vacuum. Each and every week it will be important to assess the popularity of each of the big four and make those five or six card changes to your deck. Little changes like Ashaya, Soul of the Wild to beat Cyclone Summoner, Thundering Rebuke vs Dragon's Fire, and Test of Talents vs Disdainful Stroke will give you the edge you need to succeed on a week-to-week basis.

The other factor in a format this small is deck familiarity. While ideally you're fully proficient with all four of these decks, ain't nobody got time for that. If you're split between two decks, commit to the one you're more practiced at and capable of tuning. The edges you get from tuning and execution will outweigh those of metagame positioning. This format has a lot of decision points and little room for error.

As we head into a season of Redbull Untapped and the SCG Tour, here's how I view the current Standard metagame:

This category is called Decks to Beat, but in this format these are the Decks to Play. If you're playing anything other than these four you're probably wrong. We've seen some innovations and iterations over the last few weeks, but most have flopped. Do yourself a favor and play a good deck.

Splinter Twin. Ondřej went undefeated in the swiss portion of the event, and the deck will only get better from here. Unexpected Windfall is one of the hottest pieces of tech to come from Worlds, and it plays very well with the other new tech: Cyclone Summoner. With the spike in Ashaya, Soul of the Wild you don't want to lean too hard on Summoner, but it's still one of the best cards in Standard against Mono-Green Aggro.

Make sure not to just copy Ondřej's list raw. His list (and every other list from Worlds) was made for a very specific 16-person field, and there have been innovations and metagame shifts since then. You need to respect Mono-White Aggro more, and you need to respect Izzet Dragons.

Mono-White Aggro didn't have the best time at Worlds, but it dominated the later half of the weekend on Magic Online and in the SCG $5k. Mono-White's three-drops are fairly polarized, but they're all incredibly powerful. Most of Mono-White's sideboard is dedicated to tuning the three-drops for the matchup at hand, and you'll be rewarded for the right game-one configuration as well.

Don't focus too hard one the one-drops with and against this deck. You want to curve out, and Cinderclasm is a pain, but the real power of this deck comes from the supporting twos and threes that amplify the board presence of Mono-White Aggro. The focus of this archetype is a critical mass of pressure, and your tuning and play should reflect that.

Mono-Green Aggro remains one of the two pivot points of the format alongside Izzet Epiphany. Because one of the best answers to Mono-Green is a board wipe, the archetype has picked up cards like Primal Adversary and Ashaya, Soul of the Wild while cranking Ranger Class up to a playset.

Mono-Green has the biggest, baddest individual threats, and the question now is how best to protect them or push them through for lethal. The biggest problem for Mono-Green is often the sideboard options, with mirror tech dipping as low as Tajuru Blightblade and Froghemoth being somehow the best haste threat in green.

Now that the format is narrowly defined, Izzet Dragons can step back up. You're no longer quite as worried about having the wrong answers for the matchup because there are only a few matchups now. Izzet Dragons is about setting up a window to maximize your threats and slam the door on your opponent.

The tuning in the weeks to come is not in the threat suite, but the answer suite. Which counterspells do you play, which supplementary removal spells, do you play the Divide by Zero package? This is also I believe the most play-intensive deck. You need to plan and adapt the entire game to assemble a lethal window with Goldspan Dragon or Ashmouth Dragon. If you want to play Izzet Dragons, you need to get in the reps.

We all wanted to believe. But it wasn't the case. When the mana for this deck lines up properly it looks pretty good! But the mana is rough, and the power level is low. If this deck ever falls behind it has very few catchup mechanisms.

I said it last week, but this is the last hope for midrange. You need cards like Negate to fight back against Izzet Epiphany, and you need closing power. Fading Hope and Divide by Zero are too effective against Wrenn and Seven, so instead you need to lean on haste threats like Goldspan Dragon and Reckless Stormseeker to punish the Unsummon effects. If you don't want to play one of the top-tier lists out of stubbornness, at least play this.

Alrund's Epiphany and Galvanic Iteration are a messed up combo. I believe Izzet Epiphany to be the strongest deck in the format and will be working on it for the foreseeable future. While Cyclone Summoner isn't the autowin it was before against Mono-Green Aggro, it's still incredibly powerful. With so much card selection, the value of these one-ofs is much higher, and I'm not afraid to split my maindeck hedges to address the top tier.

It's possible I should still include threats like Goldspan Dragon in the sideboard. The ability to take advantage of opponents solely relying on Test of Talents is potent, but I'm currently leaning toward Cyclone Summoner for its power against Mono-Green Aggro. This might cost me too much in the postboard mirror, but I'll continue testing and tuning as we head into the Redbull Untapped season.

Standard may be a frustrating format for ladder, but it's incredibly interesting and rewarding at high level play. Worlds was a joy to watch, and congratulations again to Yuta Takahashi on becoming our new World Champion. I'm looking forward to the Redbull series with some of the biggest prize pools we've seen in the online scene, and many more are looking forward to the in-person events toward the end of the year.

As always, stay safe, stay masked, and get vaccinated if you haven't already. Magic is a great game, and we want the community to survive so that the scene sticks around for years to come.
