Top Standard Decks to Try Post-Oko Ban


If you missed yesterday’s news, three powerful green cards are now banned from Standard (in addition to Field of the Dead) – Oko, Thief of Crowns, Once Upon a Time and Veil of Summer. These cards collectively made green-based decks dominate Standard for almost two months since the release of Throne of Eldraine, and this change is bound to create a big shift in the metagame.

Check out all the decks from the recent Twitch Rivals tournament!

Players are already brewing and experimenting new and old deck archetypes without fear of getting their cards turned into a 3/3 Elk, especially those who will be competing in the high stakes Twitch Rivals tournament starting today at 12 PM PST. We have scoured the social media for some Standard decklists you can try (at least until the tournament decklists are released). Worst case scenario, many players are in the same boat in that nobody knows what to expect, so playing new decks tend to throw unprepared opponents off their guard.


Let’s start off with the raw decklists, before we rationalize how the current decks and the new metagame will be impacted from the bans (which we will do at more length tomorrow after Twitch Rivals)! Many people will be familiar with some of the deck archetypes below that have been biding their time, being suppressed by the Oko meta.
