One color, no worries: Dom Harvey is a fan of Mono-Green Aggro❄ for Innistrad: Midnight Hunt Standard. He shows how to attack your way to wins on MTG Arena.

Depending on who you ask, Innistrad: Midnight Hunt Standard has already degenerated into a ridiculous arms race. You can beat the people using Blood on the Snow to return Professor Onyx by looping Storm the Festival with Rootcoil Creeper, but you never get to do any of this because the broken deck is using the same Alrund's Epiphany to take several turns in a row as you twiddle your thumbs. The verdict is in: this is an Alrund's Epiphany format until further notice and its days may be or should be numbered.

I get that people were already sick of Esika's Chariot — a mark of its quality, perhaps — but we can't pretend it doesn't exist. If you played in a Standard tournament this weekend, you didn't have that choice in the first place. Let's look at the results:

Across these various events Mono-Green Aggro❄ had the highest win-rate and was thrashing the various Izzet decks that were being hailed as the next big thing. It’s hard to read too much into one set of results, though, especially when the confidence intervals are so wide and the sample is so small. What if the Magic Online results tell a different story?

Well then…
