Sneking Around Standard Game Day

It was little surprise to me that a Red deck would run wild at the Pro Tour.  I had suspicions going into that weekend that the Pros would find comfort in a fast aggro deck and I suspected that would be a key component in this deck.  I was so confident that I went to my Patreon Chat and told the guys in there that they should buy this card when it was $.96.  I bought in myself, a total of 4 playsets, and sold off 3 sets this week at $5 a piece.

Standard Decknology: Delirium’s not Dead Yet

Decknology: Standard – GW Humans

I was in a weird place with standard, coming off of Gameday weekend, and a mediocre performance in the Standard events, as discussed in my Game Day Decknology article.  I had two serviceable decks that had potential to be strong, but they really didn’t speak to my play style. Both of these decks were fun to play but I wasn’t overly passionate about either of them. I messaged a testing buddy to discuss plans for the evening, and he told me about his new Standard. Then he asked me, “What do you actually need to want to play Standard.” I thought on
