Adventures in Standard: Aggro vs. Control

As Standard has improved over the last few years, we've seen a wide range of decks emerge. But even as big as some of these have grown, according to mtgdecks.net, even the most popular only represents about 10% of the meta.

1 Deck, 2 Deck ~ Jund Deck, Brew Deck

1 Deck, 2 Deck ~ Jund Deck, Brew Deck and random thoughts on community... Hey there MTGCanada readers! I'm back once more with a Standard brew that seems to hold its own in the current environment.
