Oko-banned community tournament results

AetherHub Event 
By: andreliverod - 17 Nov 2019

Results are in from our last Community tournament before the November 18th ban announcement we saw a lot of variety and interesting decklists. While we don't know what tomorrow brings in terms of bannings I hope these decks give you some inspirations for new decks to try out in the coming weeks.

Link to the decklists of all 64 players: AetherHub Community tournament 2 w/Oko Banned

As in the first tournament, we saw a lot of diversity in the top placements. If you want to have a look at the decklists from our first tournament you can find them here: AetherHub Community tournament 1 w/Oko Banned

1st. Angelmaldita

There has been a lot of cat sacrifices going on in MTG Arena lately, they are popular with the priests and is a snug fit in the Witch's Ovenimage. A new trend in this deck is snagging babies with Claim the Firstbornimage. Not sure where Angelmaldita got this idea, maybe from playing too much Death Stranding, but it worked out quite well! Drill Bitimage helps to disrupt their hand by very often costing 1 mana and being able to target anything except lands.

2nd. DonnerstagsDrafter

Embercleaveimage has shown to be no joke in Gruul and the same seems to be true in Red Black Aggro as well. a lot of strong one and two drops makes this deck able quickly run over the opponent. Drill Bitimage is also included here and works wonders with Stormfist Crusaderimage and if there is one thing you need to cross off your MTGA bucket list it is swinging in with a Rotting Regisaurimage equipped with an Embercleaveimage!

3rd. eyeq800

So what do you do if can't decide between sacrificing cats and slapping people with a giant dinosaur equipped with Excalibur? You do as eyeq800 and play both. A very surprising choice, combining two synergies which must have confused his opponents a lot. Taking advantage of a new metagame.

4th. Balthiar

Simic did really well in our first tournament and tournament number two should be no exception, Balthiar ran the "Classic" list and secured himself a solid placement with a proven deck.

5th. Bmbl

Here comes the Fires of Inventionimage deck, this time with two Kenrith, the Returned Kingimage. It is funny to see these promo-only cards made for more casual formats like Commander make it into the Standard metagame, yes Nexus of Fateimage, I am looking at you. Jeskai seems to be the go-to colors with Fires decks and it will be interesting to see how these decks evolve.
