A midrange Standard

Over at Channel Fireball, Gerry T breaks down the current Standard, including a discussion of how it’s all about the midrange, and how that and a lack of super-powerful card drawing in most decks has made individual card quality very important (and how this tends to null Thoughtseize a lot, e.g.).
This is a helpful breakdown of Standard as it is right now. Expect (hope?) that Alara Reborn will mix this up, but in the mean time, if you’re going to a Standard event – for example, a $1K at Superstars – then the article gives a clear, cogent overview of the traits and specific decks of Standard.
