It is now the final day of the January 2020 ranked ladder season, and the final qualifying month for February’s Mythic Point Challenge for players who finish top 1200. The best Standard decks are getting more set in stone day by day, thanks to the wealth of information being shared daily. This is despite the lack of premier tournaments so far, with the next one still two weeks away – the annual World Championship tournament (make sure to pick your player for MTG Arena rewards!). The best 16 players in the world will be competing for a massive prize pool, and no doubt decks from there will penetrate the metagame.
So far, Mono Red Aggro and Temur Reclamation are enjoying a surge in popularity over the past week. Other decks like Azorius Control and Simic Ramp are also enjoying their time in the spotlight, and the old favorite Jund Sacrifice is still a force to be reckoned with on the ladder. We will then move to the new season Theros Beyond Death Season 1 tomorrow, where it is expected to be much more competitive and harder to reach the top 1200. This is because it will be the final chance to qualify for the second and final Ikoria Mythic Qualifier in March.
Also be sure to check out our other top Mythic decks from previous weeks:
