Hello, fellow planeswalkers!  Welcome to Standard Weekly! The Lost Caverns of Ixalan standard season is in full swing.  As expected, Esper Midrange/Raffine has done well in early tournament results, but we have seen a few surprises among the cards from the Lost Caverns of Ixalan that have impacted Standard.

Following the release of The Lost Caverns of Ixalan set last week, we will have our first opportunity to play cards from the set at Friday Night Magic.  The Lost Caverns of Ixalan is a fun set that should have an impact on Standard.  We know that a dinosaur deck will exist in some form, the set’s strong artifacts should lead to an artifact-based deck, and other tribal decks look like they should have some playability. What should I play at Friday Night Magic? Given most players will not have [...]
