Orzhov Midrange was arguably the best deck in Standard prior to the release of Streets of New Capenna. In spite of that, it was very quiet in the early weeks of the new format, taking a definitive back seat to the flashier Esper version.
That all changed when Sho Kamezaki came out of nowhere to win the highly competitive Japan Championship with Orzhov Midrange. Since then, Orzhov has become one of the top decks in Standard, and makes a good case for being the best black midrange deck in a format where black midrange is an excellent strategy.
Orzhov has also evolved quite a lot since that event, so this Deck Guide will benefit from an update and expansion.
