Bo1 Azorius Control
Standard BO1

26 Oct by Enchiguap

  AZ Bo1 Control   70% Winrate Ladder (Diamond), 60% Winrate Standard Event   If you want a deck that will beat the meta, this is it.  But be prepared to spend a lot of time.  I have seen a lot of the strixhaven stadium epiphany azorius deck out there.  This is a more c...

Jeskai Control B01
Standard BO1

22 Oct by Enchiguap

    STANDARD Bo1 JESKAI CONTROL   UPDATES - 10/23/21   Current version doing just okay in Standard Events at 8-6, but is 8-2 on the Ladder (diamond).  Keep in mind I am a fairly average player, so I'd imagine that with less misplays this deck could do better.  Misplays ...

UR Serpentinve Curve
Standard BO1

03 Oct by NinkarPT

Matchups:  MonoWhite or Zombies (they are different on site but actually the same in games): Very favorable.  Remove all their creatures/threats and they usually will run out of gus much earlier than you. Their attempts to disrupt your hands usually doesnt matter and most of their cards is...

Azorius Magecraft
Standard BO1

29 Sep by terminusdeus

An attempt at an aggressive Delver deck that looks to mix in the typical White Magecraft package of Leonin Lightscribe and Clever Lumimancer with cheap Blue interaction to keep the board fairly open while stacking the Magecraft triggers.  One of the main weaknesses of Magecraft decks is once th...

Standard BO1

19 Sep by Shade.

  **Shock is currently listed as Illegal on Aetherhub. Replace Roil Eruption with Shock. I'll update the card list once they fix it.** This deck helped carry me from Diamond 2 to Mythic.  The previous versoin of the deck struggled to keep above a 50% win rate in Mythic. I was trying to do ...

[MID] Simic Ramp
Standard BO1

18 Sep by JeremyJoe

This deck began as a Selesnya where Esika's Chariot + Wrenn and Seven synergy was strong enough to win games on its own, but the rest of the deck didn't support the snowball power of this pair. The aim is to ramp on turn 2/3 with Lotus Cobra and Prosperous Innkeeper, ideally drop Esika's Chariot tur...

Zambos
Standard BO1

17 Sep by SoliloquyNow

This is my take on the current Zombie tribal list that's been floating around.  I went with mono black after seeing a couple of other lists here and made a few alterations on my end to try and strengthen some of the weaknesses of the tribe.  If you like the look of it, feel free to upload ...

[MID] Selesnya Landfall
Standard BO1

17 Sep by JeremyJoe

Ramp, clear the board, snowball to victory. Struggling with sideboard so let me know if you have any ideas. So far gone from Bronze to Silver and I've been having a blast. Prosperous Innkeeper + Scute Swarm + Felidar Retreat and Esika's Chariot + Wrenn and Seven are nice synergies. Used to play Asha...

S22 Crackling Simic
Standard BO1

10 Sep by IllugiGodi

A Standard 2022 ramp deck with a certain kick. I found Simic Ramp sometimes kind of getting stuck in closing out the game. So I gave it a little splash of red. Our pay-offs for ramping are the current big "Simic" spells: Cyclone Summoner to bounce reset the board, Koma, Cosmos Serpent as a hard to d...
