This past weekend was the Innistrad Set Championship, a half Standard and half Historic event. While the top 8 was Historic, simply looking at the final Swiss standings will give us a little better idea than how the top 8 itself broke. Certainly the deck of the tournament was Izzet Turns. Mono-Green performed really well also. Mono-White didn’t have results as good as the other two decks and will drop a little in the rankings this week. Lastly, congrats to Yuuki Ichikawa for winning the event!
Nobody made top 16 of the tournament with Mono-White, but the deck narrowly missed it with a 17th place finish. Mono-White has been really popular all season, but in the marquee event, failed to put up any results, so I’ll have to move it down. Mono-White had a 65.3 percent win rate this week according to Untapped.gg.
A few Mono-Green decks were doing well throughout the event. Christian Hauck finished first after the Swiss and Mono-Green was his weapon of choice in the event. In the end, only two Mono-Green decks made top 16, but that was a tie for second, in terms of number of decks. Mono Green had a 62.1 percent win rate this week according to Untapped.gg.
1. Izzet Turns
Izzet Turns was six of the top eight decks in the Innistrad Set Championship and another three of the top 16. Certainly Izzet Turns was the deck of the tournament, and as it turns out, depriving your opponent from taking any of the turns is a very strong strategy. Izzet Turns had a 65.4 percent win rate this week from Platinum to Mythic according to Untapped.gg.
I think those are the only decks that are really on the radar for decks that are trying to be really competitive at this point. Orzhov/Mono-Black Control could be considered the seventh place deck (and eighth place deck, depending on how different you consider them), but I think those decks struggle a bit too much against Izzet.
