FNM At Home What decks to play?

Decklists Event 
By: andreliverod - 03 Apr 2020

This Friday we get an event where you have access to all the cards in the game!

With access to all the cards in the game, what decks should you try out? Let us explore the Tier 1 Meta and the top-performing decks in Best of 1. All decks here are gathered from top-performing decks from users of MTGA Assistant. We will have a metagame summary page of all of these decks available soon, right now we are doing the final touches before releasing it.

Mono-red is the most popular archetype BO1, the combination of being one of the cheaper decks and your win/loss comes quick meaning you can play a huge amount of matches in a short timespan. We start off with two monored decks, both build around Torbran and Embercleave with the difference being the spells in the 1-3 CMC range.

A bit more aggro before we head over to the other archetypes. Rakdos aggro has done well and the same has Mardu, if you are an aggro player and haven't had the chance to try these decks out we recommend you do!
