Top Standard Decks - November 2023

Well, things have definitely settled down this time around. There are several more cards (even older ones) that suddenly made it into the ranks over the past few weeks. But whatever it is we saw exactly one month ago, are most likely still there. Some of the slots are kept untouched. Golgari is definitely still a thing. Goddric will keep celebrating and firebreathing each turn. And Virtue of Persistenceimage is living up to its name just like Invoke Despairimage.



Standard Tournament Meta - Top 8 Decks

Yep, pretty much nothing's changed once again. Esper Raffine maintains its stable spot at a very comfy 17.23%, and then followed by Red Deck Wins at 12.02%. It is quite interesting that Urabrask's Forgeimage has regained its traction for some red-aligned decks in the decks, as it indeed is a potentially effective pressure card, and at times a more stable default choice when sideboarding is involved. Oh, and 'Golgari' Aggro also manages to leisurely secure 3rd place at 9.98%

Standard MTG Arena: Best of Three - Top 8 Decks

Here, Golgari reigns... well techicallly it shares the top three spots almost equally with 4-Color (Atraxa) and Esper Control, distributed at 15.14%, 12.53%, and 11.49%. After that, the usual entries get to switch places once again. Then there's the curious addition of what would be a... wild Sultai build! The particular deck sits at an stable 5th place too, while wielding a full set of Tranquil Frillbackimage.

Standard MTG Arena: Best of One - Top 8 Decks

After three long months, other decks finally caught up to Mono Red's BO1 headstart, with not a single duplicated entry for it in this list. Golgari gets to jump from 2nd to the last, to just solid 2nd place, though it is significantly behind of the top dog as expected at 6.05%. Oh, and... Mono Black is at 8th place this time.
