This thread is for discussion of this week's Perilous Research, which goes live Thursday morning on magicthegathering.com.

My mythic-bashing cost-of-singles-grumbling half of me would love to see each of those decks priced, not necessarily as a snapshot so much as looking at the shape of magic over the coming months and years. My moans about cost are well documented, but I am equally curious as an academic exercise to see whether standard remains a static, dynamic, or rising cost as the cardpool increases.

However, as the first responder on the thread I think it would be churlish not to thank Jacob for such an exhaustive summary of the decks in standard. A lot of effort and a very helpful reference. Cheers!

I agree with this post on every level.

My advice to anyone wanting a competitive deck that isn't obscenely overpriced is to play good old RDW. Control always costs the premium in this game, but damn.

Yeah, RDW is definetly the way to go for a cheap competitive deck. The only real expensive card is the vexing devil

Also, loved this article

Seriously? You guys remove a vast majority of MTGO's daily results, and you come up with this kind of article, and you call it a compendium? And you even finish with a "knowledge is power!"? The one thing I have learned from this article is that your communication/PR skills are abysmal.
