June 26, 2020
Wizards of the Coast

Players Tour Online 3 and Player Tour Online 4 saw the curtain drop on Ikoria Standard, but not without a closing salvo against Temur Reclamation and Bant Ramp. Maria, Riley, Cedric, and Corey look at some late-breaking innovations against the meta's top dogs, plus review the big learnings from a tumultuous stretch in Standard with Ikoria. And with Core Set 2021 now available, they look at some early expectations—and fun decks—coming to Magic with the new set.
