Dominaria Standard Shakeup best decks

Meta MTGA Events 
By: andreliverod - 18 Aug 2019

The new Standard Shakeup brings in a lot of bans in an attempt to make it more brewer friendly. We take a look at the decks we expect to be at the top in this event. There are a lot of good meta decks that only need small tweaks to be playable.

 

Jund Dinos loses no cards at all and is probably the strongest archetype in the Standard Shakeup, if you have this deck you are all set. This will probably be dominating the whole event.

Simic Flash looks decent too, only losing Brineborn Cutthroatimage. Frilled Mysticimage and Nightpack Ambusherimage can carry this deck by themselves. Put in more of the mainboard cards or some Shifting Ceratopsimage from the sideboard and you have this.
