Ikoria First week Breakout Metadecks

Competitive Meta 
By: andreliverod - 20 Apr 2020

In this article, we explore the first breakout Ikoria decks in MTG Arena. These decks have had a good win rate or won events since the release of Ikoria on MTGA.  As always all of these decklists are from our MTGA Assistant extension which collects decks the top decks of the metagame. Even though the top-performing decks are still ye old THB decks, we look at the new meta decks with cards from Ikoria.

 Contribute to the metagame by installing MTGA Assistant. We also have a reward for the top mythic players in April, still time to join!

At the top of BO1 Standard, you will still find Mono-red, Rakdos and Mono-white decks, but we have some really interesting decks with Ikoria. Take a look at these two Kaheera, the Orphanguardimage companion decks! Two different variations with the same midrange idea.

Five-color Fires of Inventionimage is still rocking it in BO1 and now with a wincon in Genesis Ultimatumimage. In BO1 chances are the game is over even before you reach that amount of mana as there are a lot of aggro decks here. But for mirror matches against control this just outright wins the game with value.

Another companion deck! This time it is Keruga, the Macrosageimage. The main challenge here is staying alive taking the hits until turn three when you can start playing your deck. Being on the draw with this deck will be quite harsh, but if you can survive to turn 4-5 chances are high the win is yours.

A lot of Rakdos decks out there and they play mostly as before, but we decided to highlight this one which not only use Call of the Death-Dwellerimage which you can find in other Rakdos decks, but also Serrated Scorpionimage
