Heart of Kiran Discussion
5 days ago
Hi everyone, thanks so much for taking the time to read my first post of my new weekly forum series, MetaWatch.
Every weekend, I will cover the changes that have happened to the standard metagame in the last week, which decks are hot in standard, and a few decks in the metagame that we should watch in the next couple months.
So lets get started, here's the top 5 decks in the standard metagame as of 7-21-17
1st: WU Monument 11.27%
2nd: Mardu Vehicles: 10.8%
3rd: Blue Red Control: 7.51%
4th: Temur Energy: 7.04%
5th: GB energy: 5.63%
Notables: 7th Mono Black Zombies 4.69%
(Data from MTGGoldfish's metagame page)
Wow! UR Control has just overtaken Temur Energy for 3rd place in the metagame! Note that this deck wasn't even in the top 5 two months ago! This deck has really jumped up through the metagame and is now making a name for itself once again with HOU.
Some noteable cards from HOU in this deck are
with its ability to remove not only creatures, but vehicles as well, this card is a perfect fit for this deck.
a great counterspell one moment, but then acts like Anticipate another time.
Feel the ultimate power of the God Pharaoh!! No need for explanation, it's just good!
Because of this, I predict that UR control will continue to rise through the metagame and become one of the top decks in the metagame within the next couple months. Get your Negates ready!!
Another thing that I'm finding very interesting that I must point out is the fact that since the release of HOU, the metagame percentage for Mono Black Zombies has dropped almost 10% or more in two months! So with HOU now in effect, it appears that Mono Black Zombies are heading back to their graves to rest for a while.
Ok Rowdy we are bored, lets take a look at the top threats in standard.
WU Monument and Mardu Vehicles:
boasting almost a 3-4% lead over all the other decks in the metagame, Madru Vehicles and WU Monument seem to be the most popular decks in standard at the moment. I was thinking about these decks this morning while I was working on my deck, and realized that there is now a lot of big artifact threats now in standard. Cards like Oketra's Monument, Heart of Kiran, and Aethersphere Harvester are all dominating standard. So based of this, my first question for everyone is:
With these top threats, how are you getting your FNM decks, and Gameday decks ready to face off against these two decks?
Hope everyone enjoyed this addition of the MetaWatch, I want to thank everyone again for taking the time to read this.
I'll leave you with one final question.
With the Pro Tour and Gameday HOU coming up, what is everyone thinking about playing for Gameday and FNM tournaments?
That's all for now, can't wait to hear your responses, and if you have anything that you want me to cover next week for my next post, let me know, all imput is welcomed, but for now good luck on the battlefield everyone!

I guess in the end it comes down to different metas and choices.
With Mardu Vehicles there are more things to deal with than just Heart of Kiran, as those decks can also win without that card.
You play whatever works for you.

UpperDeckerTaco when you "splash" a colour you generally only have a couple of cards in that colour to play when your curve is high enough.
That gives you time to get your three colours.
People might also refer to splashing a colour if they don't have many of those cards in their deck.
You aren't doing either of these things.
With the way that I've set up the mana in Destroy the Gatewatch I've weighed it more towards check lands, and lands that will help them come in untapped.
The tempo is actually excellent in the early game, due to this.
It's a mistake to plan on decks not running cards, like Rhonas's Last Stand, due to Sideboard options.
People assumed that with Mardu Vehicles, due to all the Artifact removal cards, and it is still being played.

Maybe -2 Heart of Kiran for +2 Oketra's Monument and -1 Rhonas the Indomitable, Oketra the True, and Gisela, the Broken Blade each for +2 Thalia's Lancers and +1 Cast Out? Or even +3 of the Lancers or Monuments depending on how they seem in place of the one additional Cast Out.

Well Noctem, there lies the difference between the two of us. You base your card selection by copying what net decks use. I look at the top net decks and brew new ideas to compete with them. Since the majority of people who play Magic lack the creativity or skills to brew, you can count on seeing those net decks all the time. No one ever knows what I'm going to play. You fail to see the answers that are already in my MB and SB that already deal with threats you mentioned that Lost Legacy doesn't hit. The ever so popular Heart of Kiran dies to my Fatal Push and 4/3 first strike flyer. So much thought goes into my builds and so little goes into your criticism. Lots of other people have made great suggestions to many of my decks which I have adopted, but I've yet to hear one good idea from you. Build a good competitive deck and let me review it, then maybe I'll give your suggestions and criticism some credibility. So far on your profile I've seen nothing that impresses me though.

What I look at are things like the top 36 of the last big event not having a single Lost Legacy anywhere. Lots of the cards I mentioned though. Dispossess is also played over Lost Legacy. that's because it can target artifacts like Heart of Kiran which is one of the more problematic artifacts in the meta. Lost Legacy is basically awful compared to the other options. I invite you to check out the decks from SCG Cincinnati so you can see for yourself. Even heavy control decks don't use Lost Legacy.

TheCrimsonGhost They are hated on bad. Almost every competitive deck I've gone up against has had multiple vehicles such as Heart of KiranSkysovereign, Consul Flagshipand Aethersphere Harvester and not to mention Walking Ballista. Cancer of a card. I also predict to see God-Pharaoh's Gift in standard as well.
