Day 1 Metagame
To completely no-one’s shock, Temur Reclamation has confirmed up as each essentially the most prevalent deck within the event’s meta and the one with the best winrate (amongst all of the archetypes with a non-negligible pattern dimension). It appears that the neighborhood have lastly come to phrases with the truth that the format can’t be actually damaged anymore – Temur Rec is simply objectively the only option. Case in level – in comparison with the Red Bull Untapped Online Qualifier 2 that was held final week, we’ve seen 60% enhance in variety of Temur Reclamation lists dropped at the event this weekend.
The premier aggro deck of the format, Mono Green Aggro, has taken a giant hit to its winrate this time, falling in need of a 50% mark. It was partly because of the sudden reemergence of Azorius Control within the meta – the deck that boasts an enviable array of instruments to cope with Mono Green gameplan. But additionally – Bant Ramp and Sultai Ramp had been now largely constructed within the specific method to respect the curve-out energy of Questing Beast and firm.
Speaking of these Ramp powerholds, Bant model of a Ramp deck continues to indicate higher leads to event setting than the Sultai variant. It is of little doubt that Teferi, Time Raveler and Elspeth Conquers Death are simply higher splashes in your UG Ramp deck than Casualties of War and Eliminate.
The energy wrestle between Rakdos Sacrifice and Jund Sacrifice has taken yet one more fascinating flip this week. The Jund tackle the Mayhem Devil idea has dropped off in recognition even additional this week. Apparently the gamers felt that Rakdos variant is simply superior to Jund – identical to Bant is to Sultai on the subject of Ramp.
However, wanting on the outcomes of the tournaments, it appears extra seemingly the selection of a specific Sacrifice deck is extra of a meta name. In the setting the place, along with standard management mainstays, Azorius can also be a giant presence, Jund with its late-game endurance of Trail of Crumbs performs higher than Rakdos that’s geared extra in the direction of creature matchups. Red Bull Untapped Online Qualifier 3 meta was undoubtedly on a slower aspect, and so Jund has turned out to be a sensible choice for the day.
