“What?”, you might be asking right now. Obviously, right now, I don’t really know what will be good when the set comes out, but what I can do is speculate. I mean, we do know the rest of the shocks are coming up, so that’s a start. It’ll give us the crucial [scryfall]Godless Shrine[/scryfall]. Actually, the shocks are going to enable a lot of decks. There are already GR-decks without [scryfall]Stomping Grounds[/scryfall].
1) Currently, the available lands provide a better manabase for shards than wedges.
2) I want to play [scryfall]Vraska, Relic Seeker[/scryfall]
3) I think [scryfall]Unlicensed Disintegration[/scryfall] is going to be pretty strong in a world full of dinosaurs
So, Jund it is.
This still current (for less than two weeks) Standard has been fun. Granted, I haven’t been able to do the usual attacking the meta from a different angle -thing that usually works for me the best, but the range of playable decks has been awesome and even though I don’t really like playing against decks like those revolving around [scryfall]Approach of the Second Sun[/scryfall], those feel like an important piece of the puzzle as they do keep certain decks from becoming prevalent.
Since this past Friday was the last opportunity for me to play a tournament, I made certain I would be able to participate in the FNM.
