After weeks with no results to talk about, we finally get to flex our analysis muscles talking about one international and one local set of results that are going to help define our early standard metagame. The SCG tour showed us what happens how a room filled with degenerate combo decks stacks up against efficient creatures and burn spells, while the results from Axion Now shows us what happens when someone decided to beat up on the decks that beat up Nexus of Fate.

About Standard Intelligence:
Standard Intelligence is a podcast focussing on the standard competitive metagame in the UK&I. Its aim is to let you know which decks are doing well, decks that may be advantageous to play, and technology for you to use against the likely decks at your next standard event. The show is hosted by PPTQ grinders Jack Patten and Simeon Beever. Simeon has been playing paper magic since Born of the Gods, but has been aware of magic since playing Shandalar many years ago. In the real world Simeon is a teacher, husband and father, though not necessarily in that order. Jack originally learned magic from a VHS tape in 1999, but only really started playing during Dragons of Tarkir. As a muggle, Jack will claim he is “The most overqualified house-husband in the world” having recently completed his PhD in Physics, though in reality he spends most of his time making Magic content. He still has the VHS tape.
