After four rounds of swiss play, only Bant Superfriends remained undefeated at our recent 110% Standard Tournament. Seventeen players showed up to play for the 110% payout and participate in the randomized giveaway of an Ajani, Mentor of Heroes. Steven Brown only managed a 2-2 record this week playing Mono-Black Devotion despite going undefeated two weeks in a row. That winning streak was brought to an end during round one where Brown was matched against Paul Sunukjian playing Bant Superfriends (eventual winner of the tournament). The metagame looked to slow down a little this week with 5 out of 6 top finishers playing Mid-range or dedicated control. What theories do you have about this shift? As always, feel free to add to this information!
