Guilde of Ravnica Testing Gauntlet
Posted on Oct. 5, 2018, 10:44 a.m. by Argy
Here are some of the most popular Guilds of Ravnica Standard decks on TappedOut, for you to playtest against.
Hope that is helpful for the brewers.
I am happy to add any decks to this folder as long as:
The deck has reached at least the top ten on TappedOut. This is not a place to advertise your deck. (I reserve the right to choose to add decks I come across that haven't reached the top ten.)
You provide a link to them on TappedOut. If there is no link, because you saw a build on another site, build it on TappedOut yourself and link me then. This is the only time I will consider adding a deck that hasn't reached the top ten. The deck must be of a high enough standard for inclusion.
I just clicked on the link in the message above and they all showed for me.
I don't have any private decks in there, either.
Hang on, I'll ask StuBi if he can see decks in that folder.

OK StuBi clicked the link above and all the decks were there for him.
Sometimes you need to wait a bit for things on TappedOut to load.
I've also found that sometimes the site starts running slower on your phone but, if you turn your phone off and on again, it speeds everything back up.

I know you have a straight golgari on there but it might not hurt to put a "Mono Green" Stompy that splashes black for the trophy. Since mono green didn't lose much I think a lot of folks may try it out early on.

I see, maybe I was checking it out too fast! Nice collection indeed, always a great tool heading into a new standard!

LittleBlueHero link me to a deck like that and I'll include it.

Im not sure this is the optimized build (is anyone sure yet?) but this is more or less what I was talking about.

Thanks for the link.
Looks representative enough to me.

Ooooh thank you so much for compiling this Argy!! Going to start testing and taking notes. Looks like a good mix so far!

No offense to any of the creators but being popular doesn't imply these decks will be representative of the meta moving forward.
The good people of Cockatrice have been playtesting the new standard for over a week now and I'm seeing a lot of:
The Flame of Keld burn
stompy (pretty much vomitpile's list exactly)
esper/jeskai/bant(nexus)/grixis control (hard to tell which is best at this point)
and a whole lot of mad lads on controlish oops 20 you in one turn spellslinger stuff
Not saying this is any better but heck it's a comment of course it's just my opinion.

Thanks for throwing my list in there! The stuff stensiagamekeeper listed are the big ones I've seen/heard of in most articles, pro podcasts, etc, those are the hyped ones in the bigger meta at the moment for sure.

stensiagamekeeper if you make lists of those decks on TappedOut, and link 'em in this topic, they can be included.
The gauntlet isn't fixed. It grows with the meta.
