Hello everyone! One of the best MTG Arena events around is gracing us with its presence again this weekend: The Standard Metagame Challenge! For those who enjoy their constructed play, this is a great opportunity to earn a lot of Gold and packs as it's one of the best events in terms of how much you invest versus how much you can get.

Before I continue, here are the event details for those who want to know the specifics.
