With only a couple of days left until Pro Tour Ixalan there is hope that new Standard archetypes will break out and be able to fight against Temur Energy, but unfortunately I think it's a long shot. The Standard format as a whole is more solved than I've ever seen before a Pro Tour in my brief Magic career, but to be fair this is also the first time the Pro Tour didn't occur right after the set's release.
Even the Limited format has been solved somewhat (Ryan Saxe might be to blame...) with people realizing the enchantments in Ixalan are much better than originally thought. Previews for the next set, Rivals of Ixalan, have started to be released and we haven't even had the Pro Tour yet! This is definitely going to be a different Pro Tour than we're used to, but that doesn't mean I'm any less excited to watch it.
Pro Tour Ixalan isn't the only event happening this weekend though, as there are still #SCGRegionals happening around the country, and they are all Modern. I'm not sure whether or not I'll be able to make it to one of the eleven #SCGRegionals locations--most likely North Carolina--but if I do there's no secret to what I'll be playing.

G/W Company is still my deck of choice even though I know it's not the deck for everyone. It's very hard to play and isn't exactly inherently powerful, but I just really enjoy playing it.
I've already written plenty about G/W Company in the past though, so what I want to do today is brew up some fun Sultai decks, which is one of the least played color combinations in Modern. Let's change that.
