Best-of-Three (BO3) Standard Tier List – October 2020

Here is a summary of the best decks representing Traditional (BO3) Standard below, which you can also find this at our metagame page. We base the ranking based on various sources such as tournament results, data from third-party applications, ladder experience and in consultation with players. You will find the full explanations of the tiers below the tier list.

  • Tier One: The best of the best. The most consistent decks that sport the highest win rates and generally, the highest play rates.
  • Tier Two: Very solid decks that are slightly lacking in some capacity, whether it’s consistency or power compared to the Tier One archetypes. These can still be strong choices for ladder or for tournaments if you are highly skilled with the archetype or play them during the right metas.
  • Tier Three: Either these decks are poorly positioned or have a lot of power/consistency issues. These are decks that see play, but are generally worse choices than your other options.
