Mythic Championship VII Qualifier's first day has ended with over 2000 players facing the Oko takeover of the Standard format, but the problem is everywhere... Starcitygames Standard Classic faced the same results, and Hareruya Standard Tournaments are on the same boat. Do we have a problem?

Standard metagame this weekend

Mythic Championship VII Qualifier's first day has finished, but Oko's dominance is not. After multiple rounds of Standard, and with more than 2000 players fighting their way to classify, Oko is still on almost every deck. 

Maybe Field of the Dead was only part of the problem? Take a look at the current archetype analysis from the tournament, more than half of the players were running the Simic Planeswalker on their decks.  We will look at each of the major tournaments individually and at the end of the article you will find a table with all the aggregated data from this weekend tournaments.
