Hooglandia Open 3 Historic Decklists and Metagame Breakdown

218 players have registered to play some Historic for the third Hooglandia Open hosted by Jeff Hoogland! The tournament structure was double elimination consisting of 11 rounds, held on the MTG Melee platform. Here we have the metagame information and the top decklists, but be sure to check out the link for more details if you wish to participate in the next month’s event and more decklists.



The tournament metagame was dominated by the new Historic Jeskai Lukka and Naya Winota, which looks like it translated well from Standard. Each deck is built quite differently however, so it is worth checking out all the variations. Below that, there is still a large variety of deck archetypes available in Historic that can be explored further.

Congratulations to Zach G for taking down the tournament with Naya Winota! Below we’ve added all decks that went 6 wins or better, as well as some unique decks below that threshold (otherwise there would just be more Jeskai Lukka and Naya Winota decks).

Thanks for the decks as well as adding some more unique decks even if they didn’t place that high. But man, this looks dire for someone like me wanting to escape the standard meta. Hopefully the play queue will be more diverse even if ranked turns into standard version 2.

Based on on my experience trying to play non meta decks in the standard play que, we are fucked my friend.
