Weekly Tournament Report: Crimson Vow Standard Decklists and Results

It’s just the second weekend since Innistrad: Crimson Vow was released on MTG Arena, and the dust is still settling on the Standard tournament scene. This weekend was a bit quieter than last weekend, when the set was just a few days old, but there were still two notable tournaments to take place in the newly shaken format.

The Red Bull Untapped Series took a break this week, and it seems some of the regular tournament grinders flocked to some of the smaller events instead. First up, we have a tournament hosted by the multi-game Esports organization GGtoor, featuring a modest $200 prize pool. Up next, the Pizza Box Open tournament series returns hosted by Twitch streamer HollywoodPizza with a prize pool of $185. Both events had around 100 players entered.

Down below, we’ll give you a quick rundown on the metagame from the two tournaments, followed by a metagame table, final results, and top 8 decklists from each. Scroll down to check out the meta, or use these quick links to jump right to the results:

You can find more battle-tested Crimson Vow Standard decks in last weekend’s tournament results as well as this week’s featured Mythic Decks of the Week:


The Metagame: Mono White Aggro continues to do extremely well in Standard thanks in large part to the reprinting of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. This weekend, Mono White made up much more of the metagame share than its aggressive counterpart Mono Green, although green decks still found their way into the top 8s of both events.

Izzet Turns, along with the Grixis Turns and Izzet Dragons variations of the archetype, also remain as some of the most heavily played decks across the events – Alrund's Epiphany decks aren’t likely to go anywhere soon. Meanwhile, other control decks such as Dimir and Orzhov are also maintaining a solid percentage of the meta thanks to their ability to win relatively consistently against the aggro decks.
