Analyzing the meta share, once again it is possible to notice that the 50% of the players chosen linear and aggressive strategies and, more in general, the 75% of the field is composed by decks which have a beatdown plan as their main win condition. The other 25% is divided between control and combo decks. Another confirmation to the fact that the pauper meta, despite often finding control decks in the top tournament finishes, is defined mainly by aggressive

The most played deck for this edition is Slivers (20% of the field) but, as Affinity in the first two editions of the Italian Pauper Open, none of those made to the Top 4. The other two most played deck are Affinity (None in Top 4) and Tron (one of which made it to the Top 4 and to the final victory); a single player for every other played deck, from tiers like UR Faeries and Boros to niche decks like Jeskai Mind.
