State of the Meta is a weekly column appearing every Friday and reporting on the previous week’s FNM Meta at Twenty Sided Store, Hipster’s main base of operations—yet with which we are in no way affiliated.

We thought it’d be a good idea to track the Standard meta game at our favorite Magic haunt, Twenty Sided. Some weeks it seems to be all Reanimator, others all control, and occasionally it’s super aggro. We wondered if there were any trends and the only way to figure this out is stats and pie charts. Zac gathered the information last Friday, May 10. Only ten people showed for Standard (many dozens more for draft) making keeping track of the decks pretty easy. Here’s what we came up with:

May 10, 2013
Twenty Sided Store
Standard Meta

2 Naya Blitz
1 Grixis Midrange/Control
1 Gruul Aggro
1 Junk Reanimator
1 Four Color Reanimator
1 Naya Midrange
1 Esper Control
1 UWR Walker Control
1 UWR Flash

Here’s what it looked like as a Pie Chart:

With such a small group of players coming out it’s hard to really analyze any of this information. We know Matt Jones 0-2 dropped with his Four Color Reanimator deck. One of the Gruul Aggro went 3-1. Naya Midrange, if memory serves, split in the finals.


See you next Friday with the results.

All the best,
Hipsters of the Coast
