The Top 4 Standard 2022 Decks to Take Down a Tournament with Sideboard Guides

Standard 2022 is predominately a Bo1 format, but all the tournaments are Bo3! Don't fret, DoggertQBones has you covered. Learn the lists and sideboard guides for his top 4 decks to take down a 2022 tournament!

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to dive into a somewhat niche topic, Standard 2022 tournament play. I've been massively enjoying playing 2022 and I know many organizations are even running tournaments for the format as well! The only issue: Standard 2022 is Bo1 on Arena and Bo3 in tournaments. Sideboards really change matchup dynamics so not being able to practice with them before hand can be really challenging if you're looking to hop into a tournament.

That's a problem I'm looking to remedy. So you don't have to go through the hard work, I took the liberty to tune the 75s for the top 4 decks I believe could take down a tournament and included sideboard guides for a decent swath of matchups. If you're looking to enter a 2022 tournament for the first time or you've already played a few, I'm hoping this will be a helpful resource.

So what are the top 4 decks that could be great picks for the tournament? Well it would make sense that 3 of them are the Tier 1 decks for Best of One!
