In one of the most energetic Top 8s ever, Sergio Garcia was piloting the energy deck to defeat all other energy decks, using Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Vraska, Relic Seeker to win mirror match after mirror match. His choice to include even more black cards than other four-colored energy decks gave him an edge in the matchup and made him the champion of the Standard main event of MKMS Barcelona 2017.

All in all, 25 of the 49 competitors employed energy in one way or another, seven of them made it to the Top 8, and by the semifinals a hundred percent of the decks left were energy-based. Welcome to today's Standard!

Congratulations to Sergio Garcia, the Standard Champion of MKM Series Barcelona 2017!

Final: Sergio Garcia vs. Harold Guarneri

Sergio Garcia and Harold Guarneri rose through the standard bracket to the finals, despite being relative unknowns in MKMS Main Events. Both piloted variations on Temur Energy, with Guarneri focusing on a more conventional variant and Garcia spicing his up with a...

Non-Standard Standard Decklists

Playing for Power 8: Jonathan Anghelescu, the Steadfast

Previously at the MKM Series: Standard in Hamburg

On the eve of MKM Series Barcelona, it was time for us to once again take a step back and review what happened so far … Just seven weeks ago, players from all over Europe gathered in Hamburg for the fourth and penultimate stop of the MKM Series in 2017, including 99...

Metagame Breakdown

Standard happened day two this weekend and barely beat Vintage on numbers, with a paltry 49 attendees. We understood why, however, as the Standard metagame is extremely well-defined with nearly 50% of the field playing Temur Energy, despite Ixalan's entry into the format.

Sultai Energy added to the enormous majority energy held over the Standard event here in Barcelona with five players. This meant over half the field played some form of energy deck here, showing how powerful the energy mechanic is in Standard.

Other than energy decks, we saw seven Ramunap Red decks and a couple God-Pharaoh's Gift decks, vehicle decks, and token decks. Overall, the Standard metagame breakdown for Barcelona leaves little variety for Standard players to sink their teeth into and Standard players will seemingly have to wait for future sets to shake up the Standard meta.
