In Alchemy, the surprise was given by the high number of Mono White Aggro in the Metagame as a direct answer to Naya Runes, currently considered the best deck in the format, with many players choosing to play with the deck that beats the best deck.

However, the second most played archetype in the event will be none other than Naya Runes itself, which runs the combination of Jukai Naturalist and Runeforge Champion in addition to several cards that interact well with enchantments to create an extremely explosive archetype which can also play longer matchups.

In addition to it, we also have new archetypes like the Mardu Midrange and Orzhov Ventures, which became viable with recent rebalances to cards with the dungeon-venture mechanic.
