Sam Black has been following the ins and outs of Magic Origins Standard, and with four different archetypes winning each of the last four weeks it's really hard to pin down what deck will be the right call for #GPLondon and beyond.
While the Pro Tour has come and gone and we all know what "the best decks" were from that event, that's actually a very narrow slice of what is possible in Standard. Sam Black opens up his playtesting notebook to showcase just how widely he and his team looked in search of the best deck.
Standard has now had a month to play out with Magic Origins, and we've seen very different winners from week to week. Sam Black takes a look at the deeper forces driving the metagame in hopes of coming out on top as the metagame shifts.
