Updated list of my Standard Death and Taxes. It was very dated and it kept getting some upvotes so I thought it would be worth doing an update. I think Tocatli Honor Guard is better than ever in this meta. Unfortunately we lose out on some excellent card such as Ravenous Chupacabra and Gonti among other favorites of mine. But Tocatli is good against Merfolk, remaining energy variants, and some aggro red decks so I think it might be worth the exchange. Along with Tocatli, Kambal, Consul of Allocation and Harsh Mentor seem very sweet. Other than that, Glorybringer remains the best creature in any of these three colors so there's the "death" for the "Death and Taxes."

I appreciate all the feedback this deck has received and am excited what you all think of the updates for the new meta!
