Standard 2020 (i.e. pre-Eldraine) had me end up building a ramp deck named "FINE, I'LL RAMP" which I found super boring, albeit quite powerful.
Eldraine's rolled around and after a free day to screw around, this is my current list. Lovestruck Beast is a neat card! Great with Leafkin Druid (which I had a break from but is happily back in) & The Great Henge (which is just bonkers). 1 of Karn's Bastion as a mana sink, although sometimes I don't actually have anything to do with it.
But seriously, this standard feels really fun so far. Have played around with a Cavalcade build and the Ramp list I posted a few days ago ([[Growth-Chamber Guardian]]s cut for [[Barkhide Troll]] per @Ice_In_Disguise suggestion).
Gonna have to sit down and figure out what I wanna get in paper for my first actual* Standard deck!
(OK, I do have pre-rotation Izzet Phoenix but I had it in Modern and did not get on with the standard version at all. Not explosive enough!)
Thoughts on this list? Mono-G Ramp for Eldraine standard https://scryfall.com/@wrathofanima/decks/a7a0bab2-87be-47db-93c4-ef2dc1f3cbec
Did a team trios event yesterday, real fun even if we were kinda mediocre (2-3-1 team score overall). I was on modern jund, our standard was on esper hero & legacy was on burn (his first time actually playing legacy, though he'd done modern burn a few times). Our legacy player went 5-1 on a deck that was <£200 in a format of JTMS, W6 and Volcanic Island.
Really fun event and I would recommend doing some form of team constructed event if an option.
I have however seen far too many MTG games.

Formats: Modern, but looking at giving Standard a shot probably after the rotation
