Each week the KMCs continue to evolve – and this week highlights some of the changes we’ve seen in recently.
First off, a bevy of beatdown decks showed up to play – and succeeded for many Top 8 finishers. At War Torn Front in California, a whopping four Drakon Rush decks tore apart the dragon-laced competition, capturing three of the four top spots! Drakon Rush is the real deal, and it’s here to stay.
But the format is evolving yet still – the Starseed Smashers deck showed up again, capturing a second place invitation at Reader Copies’ KMC. These more midrange style decks could be the key to blocking the Fire rush decks in future weeks.
Of course, that isn’t to say we’re at the end of dragons by any stretch of the imagination. A control deck with both Lyra and Andromeda captured the top spot at one KMC, showing the deck still has what it takes. But with the uprising of Rush and midrange decks poised to fight it, the deck needs to evolve along with the metagame, or its days as one of the most popular decks in the format may be numbered.
How will the dragon decks evolve? Will Drakon Rush keep uprising? And what’s the next step for midrange decks like Starseed Smashers? Some of that is up to you – innovate, get to a KMC and see what happens!
In the meantime, let’s take a look at this week’s decklists:
