Welcome to Standard!Quote from JPoJohnson »First time getting into standard because of Mtg Arena.
Wanted advice for rotation. What would be the best deck (excluding gates) to build that would be the least impacted from the rotation this fall?
I am not sure how to balance your criteria (best vs least affected). I think we could make a G (or Gb or Gr) stompy list with Nullhide Ferox that was nearly rotation-proof but not tier. Or you could make Gruul Aggro and have a tier ~2 deck with some cards that will be hit at rotation. We could tweak the latter to minimize the impact of rotation. It depends on your desires.
If you are looking to get into Standard for a minimal investment, the Mono-R and Mono-W Challenger decks seem like decent starting points, but their value will be heavily hit by rotation.
Phoenix/Drakes is another deck to consider if you like the spells/tempo game and the Izzet Challenger deck's value is less affected by rotation.
Seth Manfield did well with a UB Midrange deck at the
I hope this helps!
