First post-Fate Reforged decklists!

The new "season" got kicked off with a flurry last weekend, thanks to a series of Star City Open events. Not only did we have new Standard decks to enjoy (Tasigur, anyone?), but we also had a new look at Modern and Legacy.


We've got a long way to go in all formats, but I really like how open Standard seems to be in this new set. The Temur Ascendancy deck is super cool (and possibly relevant financially). But the best part of all is how wide-open Standard continues to be. To me, this is the best Standard we've had in years, and I'm excited to see where it goes from here.

You can find all the Standard decklists in question here. Modern is here.
