Standard 2022 Power Rankings – 8/30/21

It seems like Standard 2022 might be getting to the end of the format as well as normal Standard. There haven’t really been many breakthrough decks in a little while, and there seems to be a lot of the same decks consistently at the top of the Standard 2022 Power Rankings.

 

 

1. Mono-White Aggro

 

Mono-White remains the top deck in Standard 2022, which it has been for a while. It’s an aggressive deck with a lot of cheap cards, so it makes sense it would shine on the current ladder, which is restricted to just Best-of-One with hand smoothing. Mono-White had a 63.4 percent win rate this week from Platinum to Mythic according to Untapped.gg. It’s worth noting that while Mono-White still had the highest win rate on Untapped, its personal win rate was lower this week than last. 


2. Bant Party

 

This is still my person favorite deck. The deck is strong and explosive and when it’s firing on all cylinders it can really feel like playing a combo deck. It can get amazingly fast draws, and has powerful late game including card draw. Bant Party had a 62.2 percent win rate from Platinum to Mythic on Untapped.gg.

 

3. Mono-Green

 

Mono-Green is the second best aggressive deck again. Esika’s Chariot is one of the best cards in Standard 2022, and Mono-Green makes the best use of it. The deck has cheap and effective removal as well as creatures that are typically ahead of curve in terms of power and toughness. Mono-Green had a 61.5 percent win rate from Platinum to Mythic this week on Untapped.gg.

 

4. Orzhov Control

 

Orzhov is the highest ranked deck that isn’t almost all creatures again this week, though it slid a little to number four on the list. It has a good early game with cheap creatures and a good late game with powerful spells and planeswalkers. Orzhov Control had a 60.3 percent win rate this week from Platinum to Mythic on Untapped.gg.

 

5. Mono-Red

 

Mono-Red Goblins has actually been rising in win rate over the past couple weeks. Goblins is yet another monocolored aggro deck, and despite being fifth in the rankings, it’s actually the third ranked monocolored aggro deck on the list. I still think white and green are both better decks, but it’s okay to give Goblins a little love also. Mono-Red had a 59.5 percent win rate this week from Platinum to Mythic on Untapped.gg. 

 

6. Simic Ramp

 

This deck continues to hang around with a pretty decent win rate every week, no matter how much I personally don’t like it. This week it had a 63.5 percent win rate from Platinum to Mythic, which is really respectable. 

 

7. Rakdos Treasures

 

This deck has a lot of cheap creatures and card advantage from said creatures. Whether it’s learning from Eyetwitch or drawing cards with Skullport Merchant or Deadly Dispute, there’s a lot of play with the cheap cards. Later, we’ve got Goldspan Dragon, planeswalkers and Mascot Exhibition. Rakdos had a 59.3 percent win rate this week from Platinum to Mythic according to Untapped.

 

8. Dragons

 

I’m just calling it Dragons, because it seems Jeskai has become more popular, but when I tried Jeskai personally, I just preferred the two-color version. Izzet Dragons was such a staple of the format that I would feel funny leaving it off, so in eighth place we just have “Dragons.” Jeskai was the only of the two decks to be popular enough this week for Untapped to have data on, winning 58.5 percent of its matches from Platinum to Mythic.
