The Rivals Gaunglet and MPL Gauntlet's Metagame!
The event, whose start has been postponed to next Friday, will define the last four participants of the World Championship, which will take place in October!
September 3-5, the
Rivals Gauntletevents 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:
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.
Sultai Ultimatumcopies 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 Mutatebeing the second most played deck, followed by
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.
