The Magic Triangle is Complete!
- Naya (G/R/W)
- Bant (G/W/U)
- Esper (B/W/U)
Long Live Control!
Esper control is already a real deck in the current standard meta, and Bant is looking good with the addition of two on color scry lands. Sphinx’s Revelation in the same deck as the ever-imposing Prime Speaker Zegana might mean the re-establishment of Bant Midrange in standard.
Long Live Value!
B/R/W is all about individual card value. Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Desecration Demon, and Boros Reckoner have all seen tons of play since December. Quality creatures combined with some of the best removal in the standard format means that B/R/W will be using their 12 scry lands to fish through their deck for answer after answer.
Long Live Clunky Fatties!
Oh Naya… you now have access to all the scry that could ever slow you down! Playing your big fatty creatures like Stormbreath Dragon, or Polukranos, World Eater a turn too late because of a tapped land can be frustrating, but you can take solace in knowing you will never whiff on a Domri Rade +1 again.
Long Live Burning Earth!
What do you think? Will three color decks start to re-emerge in standard? Will devotion continue to dominate the meta? Leave your best guess in the comments below!
