Well, the MTG Arena best decks meta has steadied after the release of Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty! Despite Street of New Capenna having been released, it’s a little too soon to determine its impact on the overall game.

While the early days of the 2022 standard meta were dominated by aggro decks, it now appears that control and enchantments are quickly fighting their way to the top.

Orzhov Clerics

Orzhov Clerics has already featured in this list once before in the 2022 season but dropped off as the popularity of Mono/Izzet took off. Well, with the recent bans, it’s easily one of if not the best deck in Standard Magic: The Gathering.

Yes, it may be a little slow to start and you certainly can’t afford to pass on a mulligan if you have the right cards in hand. That being said, you can get ahead of an opponent very quickly and the deck had built-in countermeasures for board wipes. Beware when playing this deck, mirror matches are a true test of endurance!

Mono-White Aggro

Mono White Aggro continues to be the de facto top dog for aggro decks at the moment for Standard. It gained a lot of fight against some of the other decks with the addition of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben to the format.

The deck still folds pretty hard to sweepers like Doomskar, The Meathook Massacre and sometimes Cinderclasm, but the deck has tools to be resilient and still put on the pressure.

Selesnya Enchantments!

Selesnya Enchantments is easily one of the best decks to come out of a new set in some time. Some are already saying that it may be a little too good. But for now, it’s the best deck to come out of the set.

You will be casting a ton of enchantments to boost creatures while also doing so for a reduced cost where possible. Beyond this, you’ll make great use of the new Saga Creatures that feature heavily in some variations of the deck.

The one we’ve used above is from MTGArenaOriginalDecks on AetherHub. We wanted to show a variation of the deck and this appears to be one of the more popular setups. There is a ton of fun to be had with the archetype and plenty of wins to go and grab!

Jund Midrange

A newcomer to the scene, Jund Midrange has been making waves in the meta since Crimson Vow was released. The deck takes cues from the Gruul Midrange decks, playing the package of Jespara Sentinel, Magda, Brazen Outlaw and Goldspan Dragon.

Both Innistrad sets brought in a couple of new powerful cards that help the deck keep its advantages rolling, with Florian, Voldaren Scion and Olivia, Crimson Bride. Florian gives us a chance to look pretty deep into the deck to find more fuel. Olivia is a way to bring a creature back from the grave and push a lot of damage quickly.
