The Magic World Championship starts on Friday, October 8, just a few days from now. Since decklists got published early, we are operating with full knowledge of what everyone is playing. Before we get into that, I want to talk about my own deck choice and testing experience.

The World Championship is unlike any other MTG tournament. The fact that there are only 16 competitors means the metagame will likely not resemble a "typical" event. If the tournament had a larger pool of players there would almost certainly be a different representation of decks.

This leads to testing teams. Some players choose to work together to prepare for the tournament. This skews deck selection more as players that work together will typically all play the same deck. For this event I didn't work with any other qualified players. I did play games with Javier Dominguez, Brad Nelson, Corey Baumeister, and a couple other friends who wanted to help me out. This was definitely appreciated, as it's always nice to know you have people who want you to succeed.

My first couple weeks of preparation were spent playing Limited. Limited metagames and decks can shift a bit in terms of card valuations and preferred strategies, but not like in Standard. The first time I tested for this Standard in a dedicated way was the weekend I played in the Metagame Challenge on MTG Arena. After losing with almost everything, I finally tried Mono-Green Aggro, and was able to get a 7 win result with the deck.

Mono-Green Aggro

Three Competitors

I liked Mono-Green from the beginning of testing, and I never found a good reason to switch off it. What scared me the most about playing it was how big the target on its head was. It has been crushing most of the events lately, so it's clearly a deck people will be preparing for. It puts me in a situation where I'm deciding to play something that every competitor will seemingly either play themselves or think they can beat.

This isn't an ideal situation to be in, but I just wasn't close to having another deck I felt comfortable submitting, and I was winning the test games with Mono-Green. The last day was mostly just finalizing card choices for the deck—for a monocolored strategy, there are actually a surprising amount of choices you can make.

This is the deck I will be playing at Worlds:

This deck has most of the same cards you will see in almost every Mono-Green deck. Cards like Werewolf Pack Leader, Old-Growth Troll, Blizzard Brawl, and Esika's Chariot are staples of this deck. Which two-drop mana accelerants (I have chosen Lotus Cobra) and which top-end cards to play (Unnatural Growth vs. Wrenn and Six) are decisions that players still don't agree on. I expected Mono-Green Aggro to be the most popular deck at Worlds. Paulo Vitor Damo Da Rosa and Sam Pardee are also playing the deck, and I respect their deck choices a lot.

Izzet Epiphany

Four Competitors

At the start of testing it seemed like Izzet Epiphany was the deck to beat. Alrund's Epiphany is so powerful, and being able to copy it with Galvanic Iteration to take two extra turns often just ends the game on the spot. The deck started to fade a bit in terms of results the past couple days.

However, the lists that we'll see at Worlds are a bit different from the most common Izzet Epiphany decks. Let's take a look at Stanislav Cifka's list:

One of the big innovations here is the inclusion of Unexpected Windfall. This isn't a card I would consider a stock inclusion in the deck. We see its importance being prioritized over Memory Deluge for example, a card you would potentially expect more copies of. This is very much a combo deck, and Unexpected Windfall giving you two additional mana to ramp up to Alrund's Epiphany plus Galvanic Iteration is very important.

If you aren't able to quickly combo off though, there are still plenty of cards here that are reactive, so you can stop an early assault of creatures with a card like Burn Down the House. I'm impressed. I admit the list looks very well put together, and these are the types of changes that could flip certain matchups in Epiphany's favor. It's not always about what deck you choose to play, but the card choices. I expect to see more builds of this deck moving toward the maximum amount of Unexpected Windfall and Galvanic Iteration to really prioritize the combo.

Grixis Epiphany

Four Competitors

Izzet Epiphany was to be expected. Grixis Epiphany however is not a deck I thought would be present at Worlds. It just goes to show if one team thinks a bit outside the box and comes up with a new deck, then all of a sudden a rogue strategy is a quarter of the field in an event like Worlds. The deck has the same sort of combo finish as Izzet Epiphany, but outside of that we do see a lot of different card choices. Here is Gabriel Nassif's version:

While I haven't played against the deck yet, it appears to be more of a Grixis Control deck than a deck racing to combo off with Alrund's Epiphany like the Izzet version.

There are a lot of one-of inclusions, which is a part of the benefit of adding the third color. By diversifying the cards you are playing, you can make your deck really tough to anticipate or play against. Adding in The Celestus to clean up the mana, ramp, and provide a consistent source of looting seems very smart to me. That's a card I was not expecting to see show up at this event.

Mono-White Aggro

Two Competitors

Mono-White Aggro was definitely on the radar going into Worlds, so two competitors bringing it isn't a total shock. The deck is incredibly fast, even more so than Mono-Green, as you actually get to play one-drop creatures. In exchange for the aggression, this deck does need to play some cards that aren't super powerful, so you really need to close games quickly.

This is Rei Sato's list:

Beyond being aggressive, the deck also is evasive, with access to multiple flying threats alongside Maul of the Skyclaves. This is scary as a Mono-Green player.

I like the list a lot. Personally, I was never a fan of cards like Chaplain of Alms in the one-drop slot, and this version only plays the good one-drops. Considering the field is primarily Izzet-based, Mono-White might just have been the right deck for this event.

This deck looks pretty cool. Gruul-based aggro decks are something I tried early in testing, but I definitely wish I had played with them a bit more. The blue splash ends up essentially being free because you can play lands like Barkchannel Pathway and Riverglide Pathway for no cost. The two copies of Negate and two copies of Disdainful Stroke in the sideboard provide another angle of attack, and give you important interaction for Alrund's Epiphany.

Legion Angel 

Taking blue disruptive elements and pairing them with white aggression is a really cool idea. Leave it to Noriyuki to go completely outside the box. The deck is truly unique, and unlike anything I have seen before, so I will definitely have my eye on this one. Malevolent Hermit seems like a great threat here as it's both pressure and interaction with the opponent. The deck likely won't close out games as quickly as Mono-White, as you are a bit slower and don't have Faceless Haven, but in exchange you should have a better late game.

That's all 16 decks! Make sure to follow along with World's coverage this weekend, and pick your champion if you haven't already.
