Lantern Control won the Pro Tour Rivals of Ixalan.
I know there are a lot of people who hate the deck and are eagerly awaiting the anticipated banning of a card from the deck, maybe even something essential, like Lantern of Insight itself or Ensnaring Bridge. Personally, I think those bans are far from necessary and would likely be a mistake, so if nothing is banned and you have to play against Lantern, how can you prepare yourself?
Lantern is a great deck that uses a lot of extremely powerful cards very well while also turning some not-so-powerful cards into something far greater than the sum of their parts, but it's far from unbeatable. The best solution comes in deck selection--it would be nice to be to be able to tell you you can just play whatever deck you're familiar with and tweak your sideboard a bit, but that's not how Lantern works. Lantern is designed to stop you from casting your important spells--while in most matches, if your deck is 54 blanks cards and six cards that literally say, "you win the game" for maybe three or four mana, you'd expect to win around half the time. But against Lantern, you'd very rarely win between their discard and library control. Having a few bullets definitely helps, but density of cards that matter is far more important against Lantern.
