Now that the Pro Tour is over, it’s time to see how the format has shaken out after just one week. Turns out it hasn’t really shaken out at all. Oh well. But hey, Nationals is coming back! And there are plenty of new in-store programs coming up this year! And the Throwback Standard Gauntlets on MTGO are pretty cool. So at least there are some neat things going on to distract us from the sad state of Standard. Don’t worry though, we have a few more weeks before the banhammer drops again!
