Today’s piece takes off where Saturday’s The Meta Report left off. We have our first slew of post-Origins Standard results from the previous weekend’s Star City Games Standard Open at Chicago. Part one dealt with the new cards that saw play in the established tier-one decks at Chicago.
Seeing that last weekend’s Star City Games Standard Open at Richmond just concluded while this article was written, we are going to take a look at the new archetypes spawned by Magic Origins at both Chicago and Richmond. We would also look at how some of the new cards/archetypes transitioned from week one into week two to get a better picture of the sort of reaction we can expect from the Pro Tour this weekend.
