Zendikar Landfall Standard Shakeup best decks

Decklists MTGA Events 
By: andreliverod - 25 Aug 2019

The last event of the Plane-cation Chronicles Events series. This time we are playing with the Landfall mechanic introduced back in the old Zendikar set. Players will start the event with the following Emblem.

Very powerful, either giving you more lands or creating creatures. Unfortunately, this really powers up a lot of existing meta-game strategies, as there are many cards that play well with this strategy. This is the last of the Shakeup events, for a lot of players, this has been a great opportunity to play around with building decks and discovering strategies. For others, it has all been about jamming one of their go-to decks to get those wins and sweet reward and go on with their day. 

The events have been diverse and Wizards has been experimenting with different formats, some more popular than others. But we can probably all agree that it has been fun playing these events, not being punished for losses makes it easy to participate and get some wins. We hope to see more events like this in the future.

And now to the decklist part, I want to divide these up to provide something for everyone. People who want the best and most fitting decks for the events, those who want some brews and for the people who have the top meta standard decks and want to know which of them fits best. 

The top Standard meta decks to play

These decks are all accelerated greatly by the Landfall mechanic, you might want to make some minor adjustments to them, like shoving Yarok in instead of Teferi(See list in next section). But just running them in their original form will be fine. These are all Meta decks from the current Standard Metagame.
