Hello Fellow magic nerds. Today we have some great architypes for standard, JUND,Naya,Bant and more!!!! I am very exited about Return to Ravnica, as this opens up many broad horizons For deck building and a new tier one format. Let us look back on the past years of competitive magic and see how jund faired last time in standard. as we all know back in shards of alara the cascade mechanic turned into a nightmare for a lot of players playing against jund. Let you cast free spellls that were normally devestating became more deadly when those spells were removal or other creatures to swarm the board. Naya lightsaber eventuallly put an end to jund but the deck is still amazing then and now. Bant aslo was very hard to take down, the strength of Knight of the reliquary, ranger of eos and knight of the white orchid created a great creature base, and the fact that loner attackers could lure out chump blockers. Naya well not much to say about this type of deck just get dudes out and smash face!
We can look at the current mana base and realize two things that make Three color competitive tier one decks possible. Dual lands that were printed in Innistrad are a great match for the ones that will be printed in the Return to Ravnica, also the notorious new core set dual lands make this the best mana base since...well ever, as well as make mono colored decks obsolete. In a era when anything is possible never settle for less. so aside from a great mana base there have been some format defining gold cards that have changed standard. A few examples are; Geist of saint traft, Huntmaster of the Fells, Falkenrath Aristocrat, just to name a couple. These cards have been released in the Innistrad block and have helped some decks pack the extra punch. You even have cards like Olivia Voldaren that might see more play now that there is not much that can stop her. Over all expect to see a lot of three colored decks or even four to five color control. we are in a great time of competitive magic, and i'd like to hear any deck ideas that have been floating around. Lets go brewers!!! Make me proud and please no deragotory comments thank you.
