M21 Standard: First Week Results From SCG & Ladder

We’re back with another week 1 roundup of a new Standard format, this time with M21! We’ve had an SCG event, a CFB Pro tournament, and various other smaller tourneys to help us start to get the shape of the metagame. That Bant Ramp and Temur Reclamation are still at the top of the metagame should surprise nobody. However, the builds and the cards being used should raise some eyebrows, and give us some information about what cards from the new set are revealing their relevance in the format. M21 is definitely making its mark on Standard with reprints like Ugin, The Spirit Dragon and Scavenging Ooze, and new prints like Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse and Sublime Epiphany. Lots of exciting stuff to be building around!

Decklists for the SCG Top 8 that we reference on the cast.
