Wizards Hints at Standard Changes Early Next Week

Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath

Wizards of the Coast has made an announcement where they state that they’re going to update the format early next week. The likely suspect is just an Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath ban, which players have been pushing for for months, so stay tuned and find out! Other possibilities are Omnath, Locus of Creation or Lotus Cobra, but those being much newer cards of a set people are still opening, that seems much less likely.

Be sure to check out our first snapshot of the Standard metagame, heading into the ban announcement next week:

Although one deck is dominating the format right now, a band-aid solution may pose further problems down the line with other powerful cards still lurking around. This means cards like Embercleave and Winota could be potential ban targets too.

Another point of contention is the changes having to wait until next week – though having an early warning is better than nothing, changes being made immediately would definitely be more appreciated. As always, we’ll be keeping you up to date with the latest news and best decks as it happens, so be sure to keep a close eye out!
