I have been really enjoying playing Standard Orzhov. I think the deck belongs firmly in Tier 1 and if it wasn’t for the current popularity of Jeskai Hinata, I wouldn’t be shocked if it was the actual best deck in the format in one form or another.
Orzhov currently has access to a good mana base with decent DFC lands, strong removal including a sweeper, powerful planeswalkers and an overall good curve. This is always a good recipe for a deck, the only question is how exactly to tune the deck for the current metagame, which seems to be a bit all over the place.
I have two different versions for you today. One is more aggressive and the other one is more controlling. Let’s start by checking out the tokens list here.
