15 New Standard Decks from Strixhaven

Looking for new Strixhaven decks? Here’s some interesting options for you with 15 different new Strixhaven Standard decklists from various different streamers. They played most of them during the first couple of days after the Strixhaven release.

If you like a deck, check the streamer’s YouTube or Twitch channel by clicking on their name (next to played by).

Each decklist opens in a separate tab. This is to avoid problems with the load speed (which we had when we put multiple decklists in one article). When you open a decklist, you can copy it by clicking the Arena icon in the top right corner. Then import it to Arena by going to Decks section and click Import.

So let’s get started with new Strixhaven decklists!

Lorehold Strixhaven Decks

Lorehold Learn Aggro

Sparring Regimen New Strixhaven decks

Played by: John Roberts II

Lorehold Learn Aggro: Decklist

This is an aggressive Lorehold deck, which uses various card with the Learn mechanic. The best one is porbably Sparring Regimen, which immediately replaces itself and then starts to buff one of your attackers. If you’re looking for a fresh aggressive deck, this one is a great choice.

Lorehold Hofri Spirit Tribal

Hofri Ghostforge Standard Deck

Played by: PowrDragn

Lorehold Hofri Spirit Tribal: Decklist

This deck is an aggressive one as well. However it leans more into Spirit tribal subtheme with cards like:

Silverquill Strixhaven Decks

Silverquill Magecraft Aggro

Clever Lumimancer Magecraft Standard Deck Strixhaven

Played by: Crokeyz

Silverquill Magecraft Aggro: Decklist

If you’re looking for a deck built around Magecraft mechanic. this is the one. Crokeyz almost always comes up with good decks, and this one certainly looks strong too. it combines efficent creatures with efficent spells. If your opponents are trying to do something fancy, you can quickly beat them down.

Silverquill Onyx Control

Professor Onyx Standard deck

Played by: Hattrik Swayze

Silverquill Onyx Control: Decklist

This is a really interesting take on the Silverquill college. You mess with your opponent’s plays with cards like:

It also has a bunch a removal spells, and finishes the top of its curve with two very interesting cards – Professor Onyx and Athreos, Shroud-Veiled. Certainly a fun deck to try if you’re looking for something different.

Witherbloom Strixhaven Decklists

Witherbloom Pests

Played by: Titan Smash MTG

Witherbloom Pests: Decklist

This deck has a bunch of cool interactions with sacrifice and Pest tokens. You can sacrifice Pests to attack with Daemogoth Titan, or you can just sacrifice it to Tend the Pests to get 11 tokens.

What should you do with them? All sorts of stuff, maybe you simply attack with them, or perhaps sacrifice it with Woe Strider, to drain your opponent with Bastion of Remembrance.

Witherbloom Adventures

Played by: Reid Duke

Witherbloom Adventures: Decklist

This deck takes full advantage of the powerful Adventure creatures. It also includes some new Strixhaven cards, such as Valentin, Dean of the Vein, which provides an interesting dimension to the deck.

Quandrix Strixhaven Decklists

Kasmina, Enigma Sage Fractals

Kasmina, Enigma Sage Standard Decklist Strixhaven

Played by: MTG Arena Original Decks

Kasmina, Enigma Sage Fractals: Decklist

Kasmina, Enigma Sage pairs nicely with Teferi, Master of Time. Teferi can now get loyalty twice as fast, which can get you to its game-breaking ultimate.

The deck contains various new Strixhaven cards, such as:

Bant Strixhaven Adventures

Tanazir Quandrix Standard Decklist

Played by: Hello Good Game

Bant Strixhaven Adventures: Decklist

Here’s another adventure deck. However, it comes with an interesting twist. Apart from Lovestruck Beast, the deck contains a bunch of small creatures with good abilities. Clarion Spirit can make a bunch of tokens, while Jaspera Sentinel makes you mana.

However, these creatures can often be to small later in the game. So you have Felidar Retreat to make them bigger. But that’s not all – Tanazir Quandrix first doubles the number of +1/+1 counter on one of your creatures. When it attacks, it makes all of your creatures into a really relevant threats.

This is surely one of the more exciting decks on this list. (At least for me.)

Prismari Standard Decklists

Prismari Dragons

Galazeth Prismari Standard Decklist Dragon Tribal Strixhaven

Played by: MTG Joe

Prismari Dragons: Decklist

This porbably isn’t the most Dragon themed deck, as it only contains two Dragons. However, both Galazeth Prismari and Goldspan Dragon are very powerful. You get as your “payoff”. It also combines nicely with Magma Opus, which you can discard early to make a Treasure.

If you want to play a nice tempo Prismari deck, this certainly looks like a cool option.

Galazeth Prismari Treasures

Magda Brazen Outlaw

Played by: yours truly

Galazeth Prismari Treasures: Decklist

This deck is in some ways similar to the previous one, but it focuses more on the Treasure interactions. Magda, Brazen Outlaw is a really cool card, providing Treasures and a use for them, as she tutors for Dragons. Sadly, there aren’t many palyable Dwarfs to include in the deck.

However some interactions in this deck are might be worth exploring. For example, Shimmer Dragon can be good, if you have a bunch of Treasures laying around. If you have some suggestions on how to improve this deck, feel free to leave a comment below.

Old Decks With Strixhaven Cards

Here are some old decks updated with just a few new Strixhaven cards. If you have already played these decks, you might already have most of the cards you’d need.

Strixhaven Doom Foretold

Vanishing Verse

Played by: Andrea Mengucci

Strixhaven Doom Foretold: Decklist

Do you like to play 80-card Doom Foretold decks? Try this one, built by one of the best MTG players of all time, Andrea Mengucci. There are just enough new cards here, that the deck feels fresh, while you still won’t need to spend a bunch of wildcards to get all of the new cards.

Strixhaven Winota

Winota Standard Decklist Strixhaven

Played by: Bryan Gottlieb

Strixhaven Winota: Decklist

Are you a fan of Winota, Joiner of Forces? If so, you can try out this deck. There still aren’t that many amazing Humans to cheat out with it, but an indestructible Blade Historian surely does some work.

Strixhaven Mardu Humans

Elite Spellbinder Human Tribal Strixhaven Decklist

Played by: Powr Dragn

Strixhaven Mardu Humans: Decklist

Is Elite Spellbinder good enough to make Mardu Human Tribal amazing? Well, it’s certainly a fine card, but Mardu Humans probably won’t be Tier 1, as competition is very stiff. However, it does help the deck quite a bit, and if you like the Human / Knight tribal theme, you can try this deck out, as you might already have the most of the cards.

Additional Strixhaven Decks

Finally, we wrap up with two more Strixhaven deck, which aren’t based around a specific college.

Abzan Learn Adventures

Gnarled Professor Strixhaven Deck

Played by: Felix Sloo

Abzan Learn Adventures: Decklist

As you know Advnetures are obviously still as strong as ever. However, if you want to spice them up a little you can play this Abzan variation with the addition of the Learn mechanic.

Awaken the Blood Avatar

Played by: Saffron Olive

Awaken the Blood Avatar: Decklist

The deck is obviously built around Awaken the Blood Avatar. There are a bunch of interesting sacrifice interaction you can do with this deck. Sedgemoor Witch can make you an army of tokens, which you can use as a sacrifice fodder, for cards like Plumb the Forbidden.
