Our two SCG Tour commentators for the weekend can't wait to get the chatting started! That's why they're already debating the big issues surrounding new Standard, modern Modern, and old style Legacy in this week's Fact or Fiction!
GerryT and Bryan G. team up to talk the Standard format that emerged in the wake of the bannings and what they expect to see at the Modern-format Pro Tour starting next Friday!
SCG Philly is in two days! Get geared up by following along with Todd as he lists off his team's plans, as well as how to not embarrass yourself (and your friends) during team play!
Brad Nelson has picked a handful of decks that found success in the MTGO PTQ! He's adjusting them here and there so that your Standard team member can bring the glory at SCG Philly!
Jim Davis loves control. Jim Davis loves the Legacy Lands deck. He has found something for SCG Philly Standard that delights him! So how do you win with it? It's simple: don't!
The Standard metagame seems pretty diverse so far, but Sam Black wants to go even further! If you're not (somehow) into the dozen and change decks that are showing up, Sam is here to dig deeper for SCG Philly!
McLaren is a Pro Tour Champion because he follows the metagame trends! And yeah, we're early, but these rankings are foolproof! If you're battling Standard at SCG Philadelphia or beyond, here's where things stand! Agree or disagree?
Vampires, Merfolk: both names of iconic decks of Constructed formats past. So why haven't these tribes or Ixalan newcomers Pirates and Dinosaurs made a splash in recent Standard? Ari Lax examines their circumstances and whether they have a chance at SCG Philadelphia.
At SCG Dallas, Standard became one set larger...and four cards smaller. Patrick Chapin explores the possibilities in the revitalized format and tells whether the results from Texas give him hope! Are this many decks truly viable in the longer term?

Jim Davis is head over heels for this deck! As many different Standard ideas are on the table, this is something brand new! Well, sort of. It brings back a strategy from the Theros days! Is this an SCG Dallas sleeper hit?
