15/10/2019 · 14 min read

As you may have noticed Mythic Championship V has been a success for blue and green strategies, but a few players found a way to avoid those colors in their quest to beat the Throne of Eldraine Standard metagame.

Is Golos unbeatable?

Hey everyone, we're back with another quick metagame update!

As you may have noticed the Mythic Championship V has been a success for blue and green strategies, mainly due to dominance of Bant Golos...  but a few players found a way to innovate with some fresh decks in their quest to beat the metagame.

3 Players decided to go with an alternative Mardu brew that can be really good under the current meta:
