Between

September 3-5

, the

MPL Gauntlet

and

Rivals Gauntlet

events will take place, which will define the last four players to qualify for this year's World Championship, which will take place between

October 8-10

. These events will be the last high-profile competitive events in the Standard format before the rotation, which will take with it sets that define the format today, such as Throne of Eldraine. Have a look at the Metagame for each of the events below:

Three of the four World Championship spots will be disputed on the MPL Gauntlet, and yet we see a pretty unexpected deck composition compared to the Metagame we've seen on Standard in recent weeks. The most played deck of the event is

Jeskai Mutate

, a deck that became popular after the Strixhaven Championship, with almost 30% of the Metagame with 7 copies, a deck that has not shown any expressive results in Challenges and other events for some time, but which seems to have been the players' bet for the event. Jeskai Mutate is not the simplest deck to pilot in the format, especially since it involves a five-card combination to make its infinite combo. Next, we have as the most present decks

Dimir Rogues

, which had an increased presence in the Standard Metagame this week and

Izzet Control

, which emerged as a great metacall in a field that was mostly Aggro a few weeks ago.

Rivals Gauntlet

The final spot for the World Cup will be disputed at Rivals Gauntlet, which featured a closer Metagame to we've seen at Standard in recent weeks.

Like we saw in the Standard Challenges last week, there is a significant growth in

Sultai Ultimatum

copies after weeks of being on the downside, which demonstrates the players' confidence that the deck now has the necessary elements to hold the main Aggro decks. However, the differences observed in MPL Gauntlet are also present in Rivals, with

Jeskai Mutate

being the second most played deck, followed by

Dimir Rogues

and

Izzet Control

. The games, which would start tomorrow, will be postponed to Friday due to the stability issues that Magic Arena has been facing this week.
