In the News

Innistrad Championship:  Congrats to Yuuki Ichikawa, who won the Innistrad Championship after picking up a qualification for the event on MTGO.  He won the Season 1 Champions Showcase in June.  Toru Saito finished fourth in the Innistrad Championship after a great finish in a Limited Super Qualifier.

Showcase Challenge Weekend:  Saturday is Modern and Sunday is Pioneer. 
 

The Timeline

This is a list of things we have been promised, or we just want to see coming back. Another good source for dates and times is the calendar and the weekly blog, while the best source for known bugs is the bug blog which appears sporadically on MTGO.com. Not listed, but important: Wizards offers either one or two online MCQs each weekend, with qualifiers for limited MCQs running the days immediately prior to the MCQ.

The Hot Take Corner

Standard has had some ups and downs this year. We didn't have any bans*, which for sure, after 2020 is an up, but there is a lot about the format that made it seem like it's limping to the finish line this year.  From the Magic Players League ending, to Adventures being oppressive right up until it rotated out, to Alchemy offering digital players the Standard that can't happen in paper, it doesn't feel like it's in a great place.  There were five Standard legal sets released this year, each set with sets of Commander decks that went with them and non Standard legal cards in supplemental packs. Kaldheim, the Norse Viking set was out in Feburary.  Strixhaven the Wizard's School set was out in April, Forgotten Realms came out in July and Innistrad, which Double feature shows us could have been one set (and it could have been but then real acutal work would have had to have been put in on the Double Feature product), but needed to be two, with Midnight Hunt in September and Crimson Vow in November.  Cards came out so quickly that Standard never got a chance to really breathe and instead of innovation the pros in the digital grinders and MPL were left showcasing nearly dead and boring formats to hundreds of viewers on stream. 

Wizards of the Coast has not fumbled the Standard bag yet, but they are close to dropping it. 

So let's look at some Standard lists over the past year.  I am going to separate this by quarters and stick to the MPL and Wizards organized play stuff for the most part, because even in a year without paper events (again), it's just easiest to go by those decks, as they were clearly either really known before the event or set the Standard (heh) for the archetypes after the event. 

Kaldheim see a lot of cool new stuff come in to Standard and the welcomed return of Snow-Covered lands, which for me at least allowed me to cheaply get enough paper copies finally.  Goldspan Dragon, Alrund's Epiphany and Binding the Old Gods were some of the most hyped cards and they have been impact players in the format and across formats since then.  However the bane of most Standard players in the beginning of the year was a combo deck that looked to cheat out a powerful Planeswalker or just cast a giant sorcery to cast another giant sorcery and a haste creature.  Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider made the most of their time on Kaldheim and Tibalt did too, playing the role of Valki, God of Lies in the set.  Alrund's Epiphany was one of the major cogs of the deck.  This deck was a problem and continued to be a problem with each new set before the rotation. 


If Ultimatum was foreshadowing the immediate future of Standard Magic, then the Izzet Dragons deck that Seth Manfield played at the Strixhaven Championships showed off the longterm future of the format.  Some version of this deck has been dominating since the Strixhaven Championship, while it may have moved away from Dragons and moved towards Hullbreaker Horror this deck has almost the same game plan then as it does now.  Great threats with even better spells making games a breeze for you! 


The Strixhaven Championship was also a last hurrah of sorts before the World Championships and the rotation.  Logan Nettles (MTGO grinder Jaberwocki) used this version of Adventures to great success. 

 

We finally reached the World Championships and rotation.  Adventures in the Forgotten Realms gets a chance to shine!  The oppressive cards were gone!  Aggro reached out and ran wild! 

Check out the Mono Green list from Paulo Vitor Dama da Rosa.  This is a deck that Jamie Wakefield might sit up and notice! 


Mono Green wasn't the only Aggro deck in the format.  Here is Rei Sato's Mono White Aggro deck, take the same joke I just made and use Craig Wescoe's name instead this time! 


Finally we wrap things up from the Innistrad Championship.  This is what the Izzet deck looks like now.  Even with Alchemy coming to save digital Standard, this year without a banning while much needed and appreciated may not be long for 2022. 


*Standard 2021 did see The Book of Exalted Deeds banned, but that doesn't count. 

Cutting Edge Tech

I an going to use Cutting Edge Tech to also go over the Pioneer format for the year.  Do you remember the bans from earlier this year?  I sure didn't!  I thought Teferi, Time Raveler, Wilderness Reclamation and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath were gone last year, but they were not removed until February. In addition to those bans, they got rid of Balustrade Spy and Undercity Informer

Landless Spy:  This deck broke Pioneer for a few months after Zendikar Rising was released, it was difficult to play and measures like Rest in Peace Tormod's Crypt and the like were easy to play around post board.  I remember having to have graveyard hate in the main during this time.  While it lacked a way to win the turn it went off, (that came later in the build history, thanks to Thassa's Oracle between the (Creeping Chill), Prized Amalgam, Silversmote Ghoul and Worldspine Wurm you typically had plenty of creatures to win with the next turn. 


Hidden Strings:  I think it's a good sign of a format to where you can have a lot of aggro decks, (Mono Red, but I'm not going over it here, and all the tribal options), a solid combo deck, solid control decks, and a good tempo deck.  Hidden Strings combo takes the roll of the combo deck of the format, it's not to oppressive, It's closer to Storm than Oops all Spells. 

Niv to Light:  This is less of a traditional control deck, think one that counters everything, and more a board control deck.  There is disruption and great value creatures and spells here, with incredible card advantage in Niv-Mizzet Reborn.


Izzet Phoenix:  Since the Innistrad releases it appears that Izzet Phoenix has been the best deck in the format.  Galvanic Iteration has been great to mess around with the cheap delve spells in the deck and Temporal Trespass is a heck of one to use with the Midnight Hunt rare.  Consider has given the deck more consistancy and the addition of Pieces of the Puzzle helps out a ton as well. 




 
Winner's Circle

The Winner's Circle is where I will recognize winners of the past events on MTGO. 

I may have gotten the dates flipped on these results, however I have a hard time remembering another MTGO player going on a streak in the way that SoulStrong has recently.  The past three weeks for Adriano looks something like this.  Won both Modern challenges this weekend.  Last weekend a top 4 in a Modern and a Standard challenge.  Winner of the Modern PTQ three weeks ago.  Running hot, and running well with his build of Death's Shadow which you can read more about here.

Card Prices
Note: all my prices come from the fine folks at MTGOTraders.com. These are retail prices, and generally the price of the lowest priced, actively traded version. (Prices for some rare promo versions are not updated when not in stock, so I skip those.) You can get these cards at MTGOTraders.com web store, or from their bots: MTGOTradersBot(#) (they have bots 1-10), CardCaddy and CardWareHouse, or sell cards to MTGOTradersBuyBot(#) (they have buybots 1-4). I have bought cards from MTGOTraders for a decade and a half now, and have never been overcharged or disappointed.

The Good Stuff
The following is a list of all the non-foil, non-promo cards on MTGO that retail for more than $25 per card. These are the big ticket items in the world of MTGO.  The list is interesting, at the least. This is interesting to me because a lot of these cards have been reprinted more than once, and they are still commanding a high price.

The big number is the retail price of a playset (4 copies) of every card available on MTGO. Assuming you bought the least expensive versions available, the cost of owning a playset of every card on MTGO is approximately a number that I cannot figure out still. I have actually asked Pete to do this for me, because Open Office is weird, and I have no idea what I am doing, and I am pretty close to just being a dog in a labcoat.

Nevermind, ignore all of that, Pete got it done for me, because he is just the dang best. The big number this week is $27,227.  Last week it was $26,015.  That is a gain of 1,212.  It's like Modern Horizons 2 came back. 
 
In Closing

Prices were done on Wednesday, after I decided to log off of Twitter.  I was oddly productive for the day!
