Between the Numbers – Grand Prix Shanghai 2015

Grand Prix Shanghai 2015 -5/16/2015 (Standard)

Top 8 Deck Types

3 Green Devotion

2 Gruul Dragons

1 Abzan Aggro

1 Abzan Control

1 Abzan Midrange

I found it interesting that the balance of power has started to shift in Standard. Although Abzan is still the deck to beat, R/G has crept onto the scene taking 5 out of the 8 spots.
