Tier List Disclaimer

  • Tier 1: The most dominant decks of the format since the release of Outlaws at Thunder Junction. This implies the percentage of victories, presence in the meta, and favorable games.
  • Tier 2: These will be solid decks with relevant presence in the OTJ Bo1 meta. A good pilot will probably be able to play one of these archetypes and have good results. They usually have at least one difficult match against the Tier 1 meta archetypes.
  • Tier 3: In last place, we find decks with little presence or lower win rates, but enough to be considered. In addition to their low popularity, they are decks that present two or more complicated matchups against the meta. This prevents them from standing out until the release of new cards or a meta shift happens. However, players who dedicate themselves to mastering these archetypes usually have the opportunity to obtain good results.

Remaining strong, Boros Convoke is still the best aggro deck in Standard.

The survival of this archetype post-rotation is something not guaranteed. We will lose Voldaren Epicure, a central piece of the strategy. The release of Novice Inspector made this archetype have 8 turns 1 plays that can ensure Gleeful Demolition has a target + one more creature on the field, which marked a difference.

Even if it looks like the list doesn’t change with the OTJ release, this is not the case. This last set makes this deck’s openings stronger. With Inspiring Vantage now as part of the equation, Boros Convoke’s early game is more consistent than ever.

Warleader’s Call has been a card many players try in the archetype but we could find many lists without it. Collector's Cage has been there with great results. In the end, those flex slots are good for adaptation as the metagame requires.

With that many 5-Color Domain and UW Control around, seeing Bant Toxic on the top is no surprise.

When Standard rotates with Bloomborrow release, this deck will mutate into an old iteration. Losing March of Swirling Mist means the Venerated Rotpriest combo is no longer a threat. However, keeping the Blue cards like Serum Snare and Fading Hope seems possible.

Nevertheless, playing Selesnya with the format rotates seems safer. We know how the aggressive decks perform when the metagame is not settled and Selesnya is more straightforward and frontal than Bant.

Until then, Bant will still be the gatekeeper for 5-Color Domain.

I was speaking of the devil. 5-Color Domain has been a solid archetype since its first iterations.

What seems unrealistic to me is to think that it will remain alive after the Standard rotation. Replacing Topiary Stomper may be possible. New cards like Glimpse of the Core are entering this deck list. However, losing the New Capenna triomes is another story.

Outlaws of Thunder didn’t give us triple lands, or duals efficient enough to play 5-colors midrange or control decks. Nevertheless, Bloomburrow could say otherwise. In any case, it is something that still seems distant.

Only time will tell. Until then, 5-Color Domain will remain solid in Tier 1.

Playing Mono-Red, Izzet, Temur, or any other iteration of Prowess feels like a variation of Gruul. The release of Questing Druid was the first big step for this archetype in the current Standard.

The most winning iteration of Gruul is playing Great Train Heist and Trash the Town in Bo1. However, in Bo3, this archetype is now playing Cacophony Scamp and Picnic Ruiner once again.

An iteration that only plays Monastery Swiftspear, Fugitive Codebreaker, Slickshot Show-Off, and Questing Druid also has good numbers. However, even if it also has the results, playing with fewer creatures is a high-risk high-reward situation.

More creatures are equal to fewer mulligans.

There’s one main reason to choose Mono-Red Aggro over Mono-Red Prowess. Slower archetypes are back to the top of the game. With this in mind, the classic iteration has more tools to fight in this environment.

Chandra, Dressed to Kill is amazing for long games and exerting pressure on slower opponents. Squee, Dubious Monarch gives us graveyard recursion which lets us navigate attrition games more easily. This in combination with Phoenix Chick which is also resilient to removal and Urabrask's Forge gives us inevitability making this Mono-Red the best choice for fighting in this attrition match.

Despite the flavor of Mono-Red you choose, Red-centric archetypes are strong in the current state of the metagame, and it will probably still be true after rotation.

This tier list update Simic list has an interesting twist.

Finally, Lost Jitte is seen play in Standard. This artifact is not Umezawa's Jitte, however, it is strong enough to enable many cool interactions in this archetype.

With 10 one-mana creatures, untapping a land could mean +1 creature on the board or an extra removal for the turn thanks to Hard Hitting Question. When we attack with 5/4 artifacts, don’t let one creature block is extremely relevant. Finally, +1/+1 counters are amazing when we have many creatures with evasion.

Lost Jitte is so good that I think playing a third copy is not a crazy idea. No more Unctus, Grand Metatect, or Prosperous Thief in this update. However, this archetype is going to stick after rotation. Let’s see what Bloomborrow brings to the table.

Dimir doesn’t play any new cards, nevertheless, as we witnessed a few weeks ago, this archetype emerges as a strong top-tier contender. And let me tell you this is not going to change after rotation.

Replacing Make Disappear and Shipwreck Marsh is not as hard as it looks. The rest of the core of this deck will remain solid and ready to fight for the top spots of this tier list.

As I said during recent updates, one new key card appearing in Bloomburrow separates this deck from easily taking first place in the Tier 1 archetypes competition.

This is not the first time we have Izzet Pirates in the tier list. Nevertheless, I haven’t seen a better Pirates iteration than this one.

There are some variations here and there, but this precise list is borderline top-tier 1 right now. The reason? Once again, as we discussed in Simic Artifacts, Lost Jitte enables many interesting patterns for this tribe.

And many of the reasons are the same. It enables more one-mana creatures, one-mana interaction as Spell Pierce or Voltage Surge, and +1/+1 on evasive creatures.

Legion Extruder is the other reason behind this list’s success and the reason behind the 2 copies of Voldaren Epicure.

If you want to try this tribe, there’s no better deck list or metagame state.

Time gives us the reason; Three Steps Ahead is a powerhouse in more than one format, and playing less than 4 if you are playing a Blue-Control strategy in Standard seems like a mistake.

Phantom Interference is following its big sister steps. Even if you usually don’t want to play 4, having 1 to 2 copies can make a big difference thanks to this card’s flexibility.

After weeks of small changes, UW Control became a deck without creatures in this queue. Even if we have various options for our mainboard like Hullbreaker Horror, Kutzil’s Flanker, Tishana’s Tidebinder, etc, it’s clear that focusing all our efforts on stopping the hyper-aggressive Red-centric archetypes is the best option. Winning with tokens from The Wandering Emperor Phantom Interference, Mirrex, or Restless Anchorage is more than enough when our opponents are already under our control.

Temur list has made some adjustments from our last tier list update. There’s no more Fallaji Archaeologist or Kellan, Inquisitive Prodigy. The deck also drops Vampires’ Vengeance.

The single copy of Shigeki, Jukai Visionary is back. But most importantly, playing triple Fires of Victory gives us the fastest answer to one and two-mana creatures than our board sweepers; something important now that Red-aggressive strategies are all over the place.

This gives us enough room to breathe until we can clean the board with Ill-Timed Explosion before ending the game with Worldsoul’s Rage.

Here is where reading between the lines became important. Esper is the archetype with the highest number of iterations in Bo3. With many different decklists around there, it’s logical that not all are performing well.

Nevertheless, this particular decklist has what it takes to be at the top of the tier-1 the same case as the Izzet Pirates decklist.

With this clarified, understanding the behavior of a popular archetype such as Esper is easier. If this list can be consolidated as the main Esper Midrange list, we could see this deck on the top sooner rather than later in the current state of the meta.

Skeletons disappeared for a few weeks but it’s back with a decent number of players trusting in this tribe and having fun with a non-conventional Red-aggro deck.

This archetype is finally a reality. Many cards from the latest sets were anticipating this tribe. With new cards such as Tinybones, the Pickpocket, Forsaken Miner, and Gisa, the Hellraiser, building consistent skeleton decks is finally possible (after almost 30 years!).

Skeletons is the archetype with the highest number of new cards in this tier list which makes it very appealing, and let me tell you it’s fun to play.

I also like how the new skeletons on OTJ make Case of the Stashed Skeleton and Corpses of the Lost into playable cards.

The Bo3 iteration plays more creatures than the Bo1 iteration like Vadmir, New Blood, Aclazotz, Deepest Betrayal, and Lord Skitter, Sewer King. Having many ways of triggering crime and a wider range of options is the way for Bo3.

Many weeks have passed since the last time this archetype was relevant. It’s not popular but has enough games to be considered in this tier list.

The deciding factor was this decklist which has an amazing performance in the current state of the meta. Not many players are piloting this list, but the ones who trust this build of the best tempo archetypes in the format are rewarded with great results.

There are no new cards, but some minor adjustments were all this deck needed.

This tier list update made me realize how close Tier 3 is to Tier 2. Golgari is the embodiment of that. Even if I said that the Tier 3 archetypes tend to have at least 2 complicated matches against the Tier 1, Golgari Midrange has the strength to face anyone and emerge victorious.

On the other hand, it doesn’t feel like it has an easy matchup against a particular strategy. Just like the old times of “The Rock”, Golgari is hard to beat and, at the same time capable of facing meta and non-meta decks alike. The proof is how good this deck is on Bo3 and how unpopular it’s on Bo1. The longer the run, the better Golgari gets.

Finally, after the last PT, Golgari is playing a new card at least, Caustic Bronco. This mount proves how good it can be at the highest level of competitive play. Even without the Shadow of Mortality combo, Caustic Bronco or Bronconfidant is one of the best plays for turn 2 in the current state of the meta.

Illuminator Virtuoso is almost going to say goodbye. In the meantime, Boros Heroic will be a good option if you like explosive decks.

It has some upsides and downsides compared to Gruul Prowess. However, as we saw in this tier list update, Gruul has better results when it plays more creatures. In that regard, tweaking this list to 18 creatures could be the best choice. Cacophony Scamp doesn’t seem like a bad choice.

We already had this archetype in the tier list before. Thanks to the popularity of aggressive strategies on top of the meta, Mono-Black Midrange is again on the field competing fiercely.

Its great advantage is similar to what makes Golgari a good option in the current state of the metagame. It can be the beatdown when it needs to, and be the control deck when it has to.

With good Planeswalkers, creatures, removals, and discards, adjusting the gears for games 2 and 3 makes you feel comfortable most of the time.

We have to notice how popular Ashiok, Wicked Manipulatorhas been recently. If this planeswalker continues performing well on both queues don’t be surprised when we start seeing it on tier 1 decks soon.

This archetype was here and there since the release of Errant and Giada. And let me tell you, it is fun to play and good enough to hold its place against the current competitive environment.

However, just like other archetypes like Simic Artifacts or Izzet Pirates, it hasn’t had the chance to be refined. The reason is that it’s not popular enough to put the idea on many people’s hands, which makes the list get better and better as time passes. Simic and Pirates are now very well refined, putting both decks on top of the competition.

I chose this list instead of the most popular one I saw on the ladder because it has better results competitively. You may see Malcolm, Alluring Scoundrel, or Stoic Sphinx, but for now, ncowden’s list seems the best way to start tweaking the numbers.

End Step

I’m glad to see some decks finally playing Lost Jitte. It proves how good the card is while it looks like the card some archetypes were lacking for became a top contender.

Bant Toxic is proving itself strong battling the meta while holding 5-Color Domain from taking first place, while Red-aggressive strategies are dominating on top of tier 1.

I hope this tier list update was useful for you and brings light to the Bo3 queue. Let’s see what the next few weeks have in for us. In the meantime, see you soon in a new article.
