Standard Anti-Winota Rogues by Luis Scott-Vargas
Winota is the deck to beat in Standard right now, and I think Rogues has a good shot at doing just that. Control decks have largely been pushed out, but Rogues can adjust accordingly, and Into the Story is still a fantastic card. This is the Anti-Winota Rogues list I’d recommend right now. For reference, the best-performing Naya Winota deck has a 66.6 percent win rate according to Untapped.gg from Platinum to Mythic – and is the best performing Standard deck as well.
The game plan hasn’t changed – you still are looking to mill the opponent to turn on all your Into the Stories and Rogues, and can play as aggro or control as needed. Let’s talk about the new additions.
This is a big one. The main appeal is that it kills Winota for just one mana, even through Selfless Savior. It can also kill any other white creature and even pick off small things of other colors. I wouldn’t leave home without three of these.
I’ve tried this and Hall of Storm Giants, and this is way better. Menace is nice, exiling graveyard cards can come up, and it even enters untapped early.
Main deck Crippling Fears are strong in the current meta. This is one of the swingiest cards, as it’s dead against control, but it’s perfect against any creature deck.
