On the Edge Decklists (October 2022)
We have 10 new On the Edge decklists featuring the best cards from the limited card pool we are given!
If you’re unsure what direction to take, Mono White is always a great option. With a brutal curve, you can easily get under any opponent.
Playing cheap threats and excellent interaction, Mono Blue Tempo will stop the opponent from doing anything meaningful then quickly end the game.
One of the best decks in Bo1 Standard currently, Mono Black Aggro has powerful threats that are pushed through by awesome interaction.
Similar to Mono Black, Mono Red has an excellent curve and cheap interaction to end the game before the opponent can enact their game plan.
Utilizing the best threats from Red and Green, Gruul looks to beat the opponent down with excellent threats.
One of the best midrange decks before Standard rotation, Orzhov Midrange has the strengths of Mono Black coupled with the powerful Extraction Specialist package.
The best engine deck in Standard, Rakdos Anvil plays really long games as you slowly whittle away at the opponent’s life total.
A deck functionally untouched by the format, Selesnya Enchantments is one of the best Bo1 decks that lost nearly nothing without the Innistrad sets.
Likely the coolest deck you could play for the event, Esper Zur is half midrange, half wonky combo deck where you can make humongous creatures with Zur and Leyline Binding.
