Izzet Powerstones is the new hotness on the Standard streets. In the midst of a (Brothers’) war between midrange powerhouses Grixis and Mono-White, the artifact ramp deck claims a center spot in the metagame. Magic Online grinder Mogged Top 8’d three out the last four Standard Challenges with his take on the archetype, nabbing first and second respectively this past weekend. I took their list, worked on it and welcome you to read my Deck Guide.
It’s difficult to assess the impact of a new mechanic in Standard, therefore I’m very pleased to see my prediction of Powerstone ramp leaving a footprint in Standard to be accurate.
