Anyone have Mantis Rider taking down the first Khans of Tarkir Standard event of the season?

I didn't, but it's a pretty cool deck that did win the SCG Standard Open yesterday.

A familiar sight on the first weekend of Standard.

Four Green-based decks in the Top 8, and four otherwise. Not bad for the opening salvo in Standard tech. You can find the full decklists here.
