With less than a week left to submit decklists for the 2020 Season Grand Finals, I've been trying to keep as up to date with the Historic format as possible. Zendikar Rising has definitely shaken things up, and just like Standard we have Four-Color Omnath as a new deck to work with.

Historic isn't that different from Standard in many ways, but the larger card pool also allows a wider variety of strong decks.nLet's take a look at where the metagame is at the moment.

This is, of course, the deck I used to win the Mythic Invitational, and the one I have the most experience with. It remains one of the top 3 decks in the format. This is a strategy you can mold to fit the metagame. For instance, fewer red decks? You don't need to maindeck four copies of Aether Gust anymore. More graveyard decks? Well you can add Leyline of the Void to the sideboard. There are ways to mold the deck to your liking, and that's what makes it so powerful. You can build a Sultai list to specifically target certain decks if you want to.

There aren't that many cards in Zendikar Rising that Sultai wants to play, because it's basically a generic "good stuff" deck. You can potentially change the manabase a bit to fit in a card like Hagra Mauling // Hagra Broodpit, for instance. However, the biggest upgrade may be Bloodchief's Thirst. This is a removal spell you can add to your mix of interaction, and having a cheap card that scales up to deal with threats like Korvold, Fae-Cursed King is a nice luxury to have.

Right now, I see Jund and Sultai as the top two decks. With that being said, there are many different directions you can take Jund Sacrifice. Jund Company decks allow you to more reliably make use of your best creatures, like Mayhem Devil. There are versions more reliant on Bolas's Citadel or Trail of Crumbs, and these lists tend to want to play longer games. This is another deck that isn't changing much from Zendikar Rising besides the addition of potentially a new land or two.

Rakdos Arcanist and Mono-Black Gift are two decks that really had breakout performances at the Mythic Invitational, and have been continuing to do well since then. These strategies definitely rely on their graveyards, but what they're able to do is so powerful, they can often win through a lot of opposing disruption. As a Sultai player, I'm never happy to play these matchups. There's also a good argument to be made that of the big decks, these are the ones that have improved the most.

While the modal double-faced cards can be played in some of the other decks, it's here where Agadeem's Awakening // Agadeem, the Undercrypt really shines.

These decks fill up their graveyards so easily, this card can be an absolute house later in games, and is a relatively low cost to add. I've also seen new removal spells like Bloodchief's Thirst (which you can flashback off a Dreadhorde Arcanist) and Feed the Swarm be effective. Scourge of the Skyclaves is another potentially strong creature you have access to, so there are a number of potential tools here. The most important one, though, is Agadeem's Awakening // Agadeem, the Undercrypt.

Out of the decks I have mentioned so far, Goblins is the one that has declined in popularity. It peaked going into the Mythic Invitational, but didn't have an amazing showing there, and players are continuing to gear their decks towards beating it. This is an incredibly powerful deck, but also one where you have access to really good sideboard cards like Witch's Vengeance in order to attack it. Goblins is absolutely still a tier one deck, but it's lost a bit of momentum, as it didn't really gain anything from Zendikar Rising.

New Decks

The decks I have just mentioned are what I believe to be the default top five in Historic right now, but that doesn't factor in some completely new strategies that have come about as a result of Zendikar Rising. I'm going to talk a bit more in depth about two decks I've been impressed with so far, that fall in this category.

Four-Color Omnath

This is the deck that a lot of players currently have their eyes on, because of how dominant it's been in Standard, and it makes sense for the deck to be good in Historic as well. You do, of course, get access to Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath here, in addition to other ramp cards like Explore, and potentially Growth Spiral. You can also play Oracle of Mul Daya or Golos, Tireless Pilgrim if you want.

Basically, the Historic versions try to ramp even harder and faster than the Standard version. This is one of the best ramp decks we have seen in a long time:

This list belongs to Joel1993 on MTG Arena. He used it to make Mythic, and it has a lot going for it. A lot of the cards should look familiar if you are comparing it with the Standard version. Perhaps the most interesting part of the deck is the sideboard, as you have a lot of different options there. Deafening Clarion makes a lot of sense, as you don't want to get run over by a quick Goblins draw, or other small creature deck. Elder Gargaroth is also nice as a generically strong creature that demands an answer.

What graveyard hate to play is another question. Here we see Grafdigger's Cage and Scavenging Ooze. Both Grafdigger's Cage and Rest in Peace are options, though they do also make your own copies of Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath worse. This particular list prioritizes dealing with red decks, by playing both Redcap Melee and Magma Spray to get rid of those annoying small creatures.

Escape the Wilds

From my testing with Four-Color Omnath in Historic, it's at its best against other midrange decks. It naturally has a great game plan once it gets to start doing its thing, casting cards like Escape to the Wilds and Genesis Ultimatum. Against a deck like Goblins, that's also doing something powerful, and potentially will be faster at doing it, you're relying on your sideboard to shore up the matchup. This is definitely a good deck in Historic, and I put it at a similar power level as the other top decks, but it still does need to prove itself in this format.

Neoform Combo

I saved the best for last. That's right: it's Neoform combo! This is a deck I've been working on quite a bit, and the list I'm about to show is my own. This deck has the capability of winning on turn three pretty easily! There are a ton of new cards from Zendikar Rising in it as well.

There are a variety of takes on this deck that are out there, as players try to figure out the best way to build it. This is where I'm currently at, but I'm going to go over what this deck does in order to win first, as there are a couple different ways to combo.

All of your combo kills involve needing to have a Neoform, and a two-mana creature to sacrifice to your Neoform. The easiest way to do this is by playing Sea Gate Stormcaller, and then sacrificing it to the Neoform. The idea is you need to have both your original Neoform, and a second copy. You don't necessarily need a Sea Gate Stormcaller, though. You can also copy your Neoform while it's on the stack with a Dualcaster Mage after sacrificing a two-mana creature like Paradise Druid or Tangled Florahedron // Tangled Vale to your Neoform.

Once you have two copies of Neoform, you start getting all the Dualcaster Mages out of your deck to continue copying your Neoform that hasn't resolved yet. You can then get Glasspool Mimic to do the same thing by copying your Dualcaster Mages. Then let the Neoforms resolve in order to search up a copy of Combat Celebrant and Tuktuk Rubblefort. This allows you to have more than enough to kill your opponent in one shot by attacking with all the hasty Dualcaster Mages. Then, if needed, you can exert your Combat Celebrant and attack again.

That's the combo! It can happen on turn three, or later in the game, but it often comes out of nowhere.

As I mentioned earlier, you need a Neoform to win, and you won't always have one in your opening hand. This means the deck needs to use its extra space that isn't combo focused to dig through its deck and find the key combo pieces. The new lands from Zendikar Rising are perfect for this. By having a lot of them in the deck, it also means you are less likely to flood, as the deck doesn't need many lands to operate. There are only 15 true lands in the deck.

Cards like Silundi Vision // Silundi Isle and Valakut Awakening // Valakut Stoneforge allow you to dig for combo pieces when you don't already have them. Bala Ged Recovery // Bala Ged Sanctuary is a great way to get back a combo piece if it's been countered or hit by hand disruption from the opponent. Your opponent is going to try to interact and stop your combo. Pact of Negation is nice because it's a zero mana way to stop whatever the opponent might have the turn you combo off. This could be an opposing counterspell or removal spell.

The reason I have two copies of both Combat Celebrant and Tuktuk Rubblefort is you'll sometimes draw one naturally. You can put cards back in your deck with Valakut Awakening // Valakut Stoneforge but that takes time. I want to be able to get rid of excess copies in hand to a card like Cathartic Reunion. Keep in mind you can play your Sea Gate Stormcaller for value in order to copy a two mana ramp spell or Cathartic Reunion, as necessary.

Game one's are generally in your favor, but sideboard games can be tricky. There are some very hateful cards out there like Grafdigger's Cage. You need artifact destruction to answer the Grafdigger's Cage. You also need to have Pact of Negation for opposing counterspells. It becomes more difficult to combo after sideboard, because the opponent will likely have more ways to interact with your combo, and that means you are looking for more specific things in order to win.

This deck is super fun, and the list could still use some improvements. Wall of Blossoms is here as a good blocker vs aggro decks that cantrips, and can be sacrificed to Neoform. Mystical Dispute is here to fight through countermagic. There may be other sideboard options worth considering as well. I might try Embereth Shieldbreaker as another way to deal with a Grafdigger's Cage.
