Japan Cup 2022 (Standard) – Top 8 Decklists and Metagame Breakdown

One of the biggest post-Dominaria United tournament has taken place, with the Japan Cup 2022 attracting just under 700 players. The Standard metagame has evolved naturally for Black midrange decks to dominate, as only a small number of decks made it past day 2 that did not feature Black cards. Is this already a worrying sign of the meta?

You can check out the rest of the decklists and the full metagame breakdown over on MTG Meta.
