A number of us will be out of town for Grand Prix Providence this weekend and won’t be in attendance at Twenty Sided for FNM. But we wouldn’t want to leave you all without a breakdown of last week’s meta game. Here it is!

Li Xu was kind enough to collect this sample:

2 x Aggro—Mono Red, Jumbies
2 x Tempo—Bant Delver (2)
6 x Midrange—Jund (2), Naya Midrange, Bant Midrange (2)
7 x Control—Grixis (2), UWR (3), Esper (2)
2 x “Combo”—Aristocrats, tokens

And in pie-chart form it looks like this:

Control seems to be making a comeback! Where’re all my Naya Blitz bros at? And…no Reanimator?

Happy FNM’ing!
