GGtoor 4 spicy decks

GGtoor Standard coverage resume 4 spicy decks no one is taking in account

Hello folks and ladys!! Andy “Blue_Robot” here to talk about some of the stuff that happened during the GGtoor 500$ standard tournament that went AMAZING and had a blast result

First of all, i had the chance to cast the top 8 with my friend Sandoiche( fellow AT and ggtoor member ) and i have to say, it went incredible

We did see amazing games and an amazing last match between Orzovh mid ( sapoa ) vs Jeskai Hinata ( torto ) being Hinata the winner of the event after a solid performance and positioning as the strongest decks in standard right now ( after the win in Street of New Capenna Championship )
Here is the list for reference:

what to say about this, magma opus is such an amazing card and event without the “ hinata ” mana enabler, you can get 8 mana with goldspan dragon very easily and , as always..one magma opus can make you draw another and boom!

But today i’d like to talk about something that call the attention from me and sandoiche on the pre setup of the coverage.
There was a LOT of “ others” decks on the “ deck pie” and let’s look at those non meta decks from the event who might be an answer if your are stuck on the metagame( btw the format right now seems very healthy)

Hullbreaker Horror
Koma, Cosmos Serpent
Prismari Command
Reckoner Bankbuster

This variant of Ramp deck can get a quick Titan of industry and oh boy….this dude is huge!!
7/7 another 4/4 orshield counter or life… Do you need anything else? , with treasure generators this dude can get super quick and devastate boards and don’t forget you can copy it with Fable of Mirror breaker and .well, i suppose is a GG

Sideboard wise, some counter spells and the big nasty “ koma , cosmos serpent” to get an edge against counterspell shenanigans, and full red removal against small dudes who wants to kill you before titan

Seems super fine and solid decklist, this one appeared on a great tournament held on JAPAN last weekend and i can assure this is a standard tier for sure

Esper Tempo by Pedro Urquisa Barbosa $500 Cash GGtoor M:TG Arena Duel #13 (FREE!)

Deck (60)
Negate
Siphon Insight
Tainted Indulgence
Obscura Charm
Nimble Larcenist
Soaring Thought-Thief

Otawara, Soaring City
Tenacious Underdog
Sideboard (15)
Ray of Enfeeblement
Disdainful Stroke
Vanishing Verse
Nighthawk Scavenger
The Meathook Massacre
Memory Deluge
The Wandering Emperor

This is a different take on a known deck , this esper tempo gets some nasy flash rogues in combo with zareth san and soaring thought thief to get some value while attacking the opponent
Also, there are a few rogues with solid ETB( enter the battlefield) that have good positions on the metagame right now ( magma opus, invoke,chariot, etc )
If you want to attack while generating value, this is your choice for sure

Brutal Cathar
Skyclave Apparition
Broken Wings
Legion Angel

This naya “mid” is very aggro focussed and this is one of the most “ build around fable” deck im seeing right now
Well, this deck seems “ fine” but I think a good spot removal or tempo base could overcome what this naya wants to do, but if copying things with fable is your thing, those rhinos are waiting 😉

I’d like to point how Fable of the Mirror breaker is being the most played card in standard, we are seeing 3 decks ( one is coming later ) who uses the card to different approaches, and lets not forget how useful the card is in things like Naya runes

Is powerful ??, yes
Is broken ?? mm kinda
You should keep in mind this card when building a deck and as a thing you need to answer ( annul mostly in blue base decks )

Well, for last im saving what i think is the most fun one and..surprise surprise, it ended up 9th on the tournament on saturday

hold on to your chair and see this

Boom!!! reanimator in standard and this adds up all the things we saw on the other decks
fable? yes!
titan of industry?? YES!!

and the fable here is mostly for discard and draw( maybe a copy but you get me )
And the mass removal that can do 7 damage to all board, easily

I have a histori on reanimating things in magic, and i might have found my jewel here

There will soon be an article about this deck so, keep in touch ! =)

Keep up the ranks and..yes, it is hard now on only 250..so if you like to talk about it i wait you on my stream ( english and spanish) to see how you ended

Cyas!!
