Tempted to just queue up land destruction Field of the Dead is so common now. Very stoked for a full year of unanswerable permanents.
Jeskai Walkers is a hard counter to Field of the Dead that also happens to be fun to play

It folds hard to Esper though

So what's the Standard 2020 meta like outside of endless Cavalcade decks?

Are all the control shells dead because of checklands rotating out?

Green/anything looks pretty strong

Gruul is really just losing Llanowar Elves and Rekindling Phoenix, and Questing Beast is a good 4 slot replacement for the latter.

Just how good is paradise druid in a standard with no llanowar elves and no goblin chainwhirlers?
There's some crazy 4 drops with Shifting Ceratops and Questing Beast

So I think the idea is instead of turn 1 Elves into turn 2 Spellbreaker/Warboss, it's turn 2 Paradise/Incubation Druid into turn 3 Ceratops/Beast

And Chainwhirler gone is just icing on top

Nope. He's a 1/2 + any +1/+1 counters on it. (this came up when merfolk tricksters would eat adanto vanguards for breakfast)
Are you 100% sure about that? I thought it ate Vanguards because it wipes the line on the card giving it the static ability. But isn't the Knight basically casting a Giant Growth on itself? Does Merfolk Trickster wipe those kinds of buffs?

God those eggs in the Esper Stax deck are finicky. I've been having flashbacks to the closed beta treasure tokens.

As an aside, has anyone been playing Historic (lol)? I'm curious what the meta is there, if any. I've just assumed it's filled with Kethis/Scapeshift players.

Just as a PSA to everyone though, every card style can be purchased after a season elapses. This includes promo code styles, season reward styles, and """exclusive""" store bundles/pre-orders

After M20 draft rotates out we'll probably get the Ravnica sets again (and eventually M20 too) for two weeks at a time. They shouldn't leave rotation entirely until the summer.
Looking at the schedule, I think they might have ended the secondary rotating draft queue. It's just Eldraine for the foreseeable future.

I drafted GRN a few weeks back and I think Wizards' wait-time anxiety might have flared up again.

8-2 with Golos, so close to that free Sealed ticket

Lost to Cavalcade and Gruul

Edit: I think Cavalcade is a sufficient Golos-killer in Standard. Like what am I going to do, tutor for a Planar Cleansing to wipe their Chandra and Cavalcade?
