Feeling Blue in Standard Pauper

After a seemingly endless domination by White in Standard Pauper, I think it's fair to say that Blue may have risen to take its place. It all started with Treasure Cruise, which is arguably one of the best Commons to see print in quite some time. Blue has been paired with every other color now to take advantage of this excellent card, results in decks like Azorius Heroic, Izzet Control, Dimir Devotion, and even my own Wintergreen.

But that isn't to say that Blue necessary even needs the support of another color to be good. With the release of Dragons of Tarkir, we've seen a MonoBlue Combo deck rise to competitive play as well as other Control decks rise to the forefront, driven by other value cards such as Anticipate, Rise of Eagles, and Weave Fate.

Indeed, DrChrisBakerDC earned himself a 1st place finish in the most recent SPDC with a powerful Mono Blue Control deck. If you're interested in the deck, checkout his Deck Tech video below, and if you like what you see, you can also view video from all of his matches with the deck. Enjoy!
