How we broke the Standard 2021 Format – The Showdown

Covertgoblue and Arjuna spent the week working on the Standard 2021 format, a BO1 sneak peek around the corner to post-rotation Standard. It all culminated in a 4 deck showdown from which only one victor could emerge…

This episode we go over the testing process, our thoughts on what was playable and what wasn’t, the pillars of this unique format, and what ultimately prevailed (and what you should be playing if you want to be competitive until rotation).

While this format is not an accurate sampling of what post-rotation Standard will be, it IS a jumpstart on playing in a format without all the busted old cards rotation soon, so it’s a great way to get a sense of what might be competitive come late September. We had a blast playing this format, and we think you could, as well.
