The deck boasts a high winrate, it's half of every Last Chance Qualifier metagame, and the definitive champion of best of three. If you haven't had time, if you haven't played much Standard, or if you just want to take a swing at the event without picking up a new list, this deck is fine. Frankly, I think a decent number of people will do just that. When I was playing best of one this week, I played against Jeskai Lukka more than any other individual deck. 

But it will not be what everyone plays. If all of these tournaments and the ladder are any indication, Jeskai Lukka will be around 20% of the field on Saturday during the Best of One portion of the event. In nine rounds, you're likely going to play against it twice. With two losses to give, you can play against it twice, lose both, and still win as long as you win the other seven games.

So what is the rest of the field playing?

In a word: aggro. While no single archetype was more common than the others, the definitive majority of people I've played against were playing low-to-the-ground aggressive decks: Mono-White Lurrus and Mono-Red (both obosh, the preypiercer and Theros-era torbran, thane of red fell/Embercleave), Mono-Black or Rakdos Lurrus, and Gruul all showed up.

This makes sense for Bo1. The tale as old as time in constructed is that aggressive decks are favored in game ones, and then get substantially weaker after sideboarding. In a format where there is no sideboard, players either lose to aggro or have to swallow their pride and play cards that will be actively bad against slower, more controlling decks.

While the aggressive decks decks all have their own specific strengths and weaknesses, they are all weak to similar cards. Spot removal, early blockers, and sweepers will hit most everything in either mono-white or mono-red. Shatter the Sky and Heartless Act don't care which flavor of aggressive deck the opponent is on—they hit creatures from Gruul and mono-white all the same.

Interestingly enough I didn't see much control. Last year's Mythic Invitational was heavily biased towards the fastest and slowest decks of the format: Mono-Red Aggro, Mono-White Aggro, and Esper Control. The logic, which made sense at the time, was that these both invalidated aspects of opposing strategies: spot removal is terrible against a deck with no creatures, and cards that win a long, drawn out game against control aren't relevant when the game doesn't go longer than turn four or five. While I occasionally saw a Temur Reclamation deck, that was the closest thing I could call control. In several days of playing, I'm not sure I ever played against a Bant Yorion opponent. The biggest problem for control in Bo1 is that cards like Dovin's Veto and Mystical Dispute, necessary for fighting Teferi, Time Raveler, are nearly blank cardboard against opponents playing 12 one-drops and very few non-creatures, and as we've learned since Oko, Thief of Crowns was banned, the best thing to do when your opponent can't interact at instant speed is to just play Fires of Invention. In essence, Jeskai Lukka is the "control" deck of the format, despite its weaknesses in game ones to true control decks trying to target it.

All of this has me wanting to play a deck that accomplishes at least two of these three things: 

I say two of three because the deck doesn't necessarily have to do all three things. It is okay to Random Stuff if the deck can consistently beat aggro and Jeskai Lukka, since that's likely to be something like 80% of the decks you play against anyway. It would similarly be okay to play a strategy that is weak to Jeskai Lukka as long as what it does is so inherently powerful that it beats everything else. I might want a back-up plan in case there is waaaay more Jeskai Lukka than has shown up in any other tournament, but the deck has been a known quantity for a full month at this point and never seems to be more than 20% of the metagame, but since there has never been a tournament like this before, there is some amount of uncertainty around how people will choose their deck, but past tournaments are still likely our best indicators.

My first point, on the other hand, I don't think is negotiable. I simply do not think anyone will win six matches in this Bo1 format with a bad match-up against decks looking to curve out. Your options are play aggro and race, or come prepared to interact from the first turns of the game.

With that in mind, I've got three decks I would recommend for this weekend. I'll start with an archetype I know well: Temur Reclamation.

While that deck wouldn't be terribly difficult for Wilderness Reclamation to beat in just a game one scenario, I'm worried that if it tries, it falls into the conundrum other decks do, where counterspells don't work well against aggro. On the other hand, when Temur Reclamation wants to beat aggro, it does so easily. Don't forget that the deck got its start back during Theros: Beyond Death as an anti-aggro deck meant to prey on Mono-Red and Mono-White Aggro. Because Bo1 is absolutely loaded with aggressive decks, this is the perfect time to bring back what is nearly an original build of Temur Reclamation loaded with Scorching Dragonfire, Brazen Borrower, uro, titan of nature's wrath, and Storm's Wrath

While the Jeskai Lukka match-up is likely still poor, the anti-creature cards do still function against their Planeswalkers, while their removal is largely irrelevant against Temur. I doubt the matchup is good, but to some degree, if I'm right about this weekend, it won't matter. I would completely believe that I'll play against aggro six times, Jeskai twice, and just have to beat one of "something else," and Temur Reclamation is more than capable of overpowering a random brew. It's redundant, it cheats on mana, it casts uro, titan of nature's wrath better than anyone else. Temur Reclamation has maintained its spot in Standard despite the ubiquity of teferi, time raveler, and when he starts disappearing in Bo1, Temur Rec becomes a great choice.

To bring everyone up to speed a little bit on where Standard is (before they ban or change a dozen cards): the Jeskai mirror has been solved. It turns out the solution to the mirror in the LCQs has been to take out Fires of Invention and just play Dovin's Veto and Mystical Dispute. You retain the powerful cards of the strategy while being able to fight actual counter-wars from the beginning without having to tap out. While that's certainly a good strategy for the mirror, it sounds like an abysmal strategy in Bo1. Instead, like with Temur Reclamation, I would rather focus on beating the aggressive decks. While I don't think it obliterates them quite as hard as Temur Reclamation, Deafening Clarion handles just about any fast starts on turn three. What Deafening Clarion can't handle, Elspeth Conquers Death can. I've enjoyed the change so much I wonder if Shatter the Sky is even necessary in Bo1. Shatter the Sky handles a large shark token occasionally but is usually a dead card, and is redundant with Glass Casket anyway. On the play, opponents are still going to need to have enough countermagic to beat teferi, time raveler, fires of invention and lukka, coppercoat outcast. Giving up a couple points in the mirror to gain so many against all the aggressive decks is an easy trade. And at the end of the day, anyone who doesn't show up without a real plan to beat Jeskai will lose. Jeskai handles all three of the criteria I have in mind.

I've said, loudly, to play Jeskai Lukka for weeks. It can adapt to Bo1 for a day.

I had never played against this deck until Tuesday night, when later in the night I started hitting the same person playing the deck repeatedly over the course of the night. I played Jeskai, I played the Cycling deck, I played aggro, I played Golgari Adventures. This stupid deck, along with the Bo1 hand-smoothing feature to actually give it a reasonable mix of lands and spells, feels so consistent.

The goal is simple: play a turn one "mana creature" in the form of Arboreal Grazer or Gilded Goose, a three-drop on turn two, and then winota, joiner of forces or Neoform turn three to win. On the play, your opponent might not even be able to cast a spell after they untap, depending on how many Agent of Treachery you hit. Even on the draw, it's an incredible amount of pressure. Should they be able to handle the board (like with a Deafening Clarion), stealing lands will allow the deck to eventually cast Agent of Treachery or a hasty kenrith, the returned king. 

Revisiting the above criteria for Bo1 decks: this deck can race aggro decks with its best draws, and Arboreal Grazer is a great blocker against all the one- and two-power creatures in those decks. This deck races Jeskai Lukka by putting Agent of Treachery into play one to two turns before they even have the chance to, and if Jeskai's Agent of Treachery is good enough to beat "everything else," resolving them even earlier definitely is.

If you're wondering what this deck is bad against, it's simple: spot removal and countermagic. In the Eleague championship, both Emma Handy and Ally Warfield brought Neoform Winota, and both were dispatched by Martin Juza's Bant Yorion list. A full suite of Brazen Borrowers and a boatload of countermagic meant that it was difficult for the deck to gain traction. Fortunately that isn't the sort of deck I expect to show up this week.

The maindeck of this is the same as what they registered. I included a sideboard in case something weird happens with Agent of Treachery stealing a vivien, arkbow ranger or Robber of the Rich. I've even been told Thief of Sanity is still legal. While I doubt it comes up often, it's not like the sideboard is doing much anyway. If it was good enough for them, it's good enough for me. 

Whatever you choose, though, if you're playing this weekend, enjoy one last trip through this Standard. After what feels like forever, Wizards is going to hopefully fix some of the problems they caused since Ikoria's release. I am excited to see some changes to companions and Standard.
