Crafters Challenge All-Access Event Guide and Decklists: The Best Bo1 Decks in the Metagame
Hello everyone! This weekend is the Crafter’s Challenge All-Access Event which gives you access to every card in Standard to duke it out with opponent’s on an even playing field. This is a cool event if you’re looking to finally try out that Tier 1 deck you didn’t have the wildcards for, or if you’re really confident, to even grind and earn a bunch of wildcards! Considering the entry cost to this event is steep, you definitely don’t want to be messing around if you choose to enter, so I’ll be providing the absolute best Bo1 lists to take down the competition.
Confident you can do well with a deck, but you just don’t have the wildcards to craft what you’re missing? The Crafter’s Challenge is the event for you.
Crafter’s Challenge is All Access—you can play any legal Standard deck, regardless of whether you have the cards in your collection! It’s a perfect opportunity to try your dream deck builds before investing wildcards to craft what you’re missing.
Crafter’s Challenge is also the perfect event to earn those wildcards you need to craft cards. Perform well and earn wildcard rewards!

Crafter’s Challenge All-Access Decklists (November 2021)
For my absolute best recommendation, look no further than Monowhite. It’s been at the top of the Tier list since the Standard 2022 queues and it’s not going anywhere soon. Between it’s explosiveness and the ability to interact with the opponent, you can’t do better than this in Bo1 queues. There are many different versions, but one teched for the creature mirror seems like the wisest choice for this event.
Just getting eeked out by Monowhite, Monogreen is also an excellent choice if you’re looking to tackle the Bo1 queues. You won’t have the broken starts that Monowhite is capable of more often than not, but your card quality is higher so you can battle against attrition based decks on more even footing than Monowhite can. If you are more experienced in Monogreen than Monowhite, this should be your choice.
Although Monoblack Control is a great choice for the event, it’s definitely a bit riskier than the previous 2 options. You will definitely have an excellent matchup against the aggressive decks that you come across, but if you face something unexpected or a deck looking to go bigger than you, you can really struggle for your wins. If you believe you’re going to be facing 90% aggro, this is your best choice.
My final recommendation for this article is Izzet Turns, but this is my lowest recommendation of the four. I like Izzet Turns as it’s the biggest you can go in the format so no deck is going over you and it has a very reasonable matchup spread across the board. Although this version is stronger against creature decks than other versions, it’s still not necessarily favored in those matchups which makes playing this in a aggro dominated environment a bit risky. However, if you’re really confident with your play, this seems like a fine choice.
I wish I could provide more recommendations, but with how steep the entry fee is, you really need to be playing the absolute best lists you can get your hands on. Best of luck in the queues and I hope you take it down!
