Hello everyone! This week’s special Thanksgiving event allows us to play any card in Standard, but only one copy: The Gathering. Singleton is one of my favorite formats as you get to play all the sweet cards that are slightly too weak for normal play, so make sure you don’t miss this! To make the deal even sweeter, the event is all-access, meaning that you can use cards that are not in your collection.


Event Details

The holidays are a time to relax and take part in gatherings that are fun and make you happy. And gatherings can happen in most any place—or any plane. In MTG Arena‘s The Gathering, running November 24–28, you’ll find a place for the kind of gathering we all enjoy—the Magic kind!

The Gathering is an All-Access Singleton event with no entry! Build a 60-card Standard deck—regardless of whether you have the cards in your collection—but with no more than one copy of the cards you choose. Play as much as you want until the event ends!

  • Duration: November 24, 2021 at 8:00 AM PST – November 28, 2021 at 8:00 AM PST

Monoblack Midrange is one of my favorite archetypes as it has strong grindy elements on top of loads of removal to give you a good chance of beating anything you face.

Orzhov Midrange is gaining a lot of traction in Standard so it’s no surprise that it should be good here as well! Crimson Vow gave us a lot of powerful Orzhov cards and this is the deck that can make the best use of them.

Spirits also got a lot of support in Crimson Vow, but instead of traditional Azorius, I opted for a more aggressive Boros version that also utilizes the old Spirit payoffs from Strixhaven.

More Wolf payoffs means a much better Werewolves deck than last time! This deck makes great use of the sheer power level of Gruul cards with the synergy of the Werewolf cards.

For those who like the Turns deck in Standard, this is about the closest we can get in Singleton, but this deck still maintains a very high power level.

If hard control is more your speed, Dimir is here for you! Grind your opponent into the dirt with interaction then finish them off with any of your threats.

The final deck of the list looks to go over all the competition with as many ramp spells and payoffs as we could conceivably fit!

    I’m seriously intrigued how you manage to come up with all these brews every single event 😉 Thank you, won twice with mono white but I’ll try some of the other decks.

      Thank you! It’s really you just start with a concept and fill it out from there. Definitely time consuming to find the best cards for the concept, but I enjoy doing it!
