MTG Arena Best Food Decks, MTGa Best Food Decks
November is the perfect moth to talk about food

Once in a while every planeswalker gets hungry. For this list, we are taking a look at some snacks that can smash through the arena. Food recently came onto the scene when Eldraine was released. Since its release, many cards that enabled these archetypes got banned. However, there are still some fun decks that take advantage of the delicious cards. Here are the top five food decks you will see out in the arena. 


5)Sultai Food

Once upon a time there was a planeswalker named Oko

If Oko was still legal in the arena, this deck would still be the bane of standard. Oko will be talked about a lot on this list because he pushed these decks to heights that broke the game. Black gives you access to removal. Blue and green are here for the ramp and Oko. there was a saying during Eldraine standard, if you did not play oko you probably won’t win. Make food and make use of Oko for this deck to truly show you what a banned card looks like

What is fun about this deck?

  • Abuses the power of Oko
  • Ramps hard 
  • Plenty of removal
  • Insane draw power
  • Even has the ability gain life

How to play this deck

  • Deploy a land and play the goose 
  • Drop that island for blue and now you can play Oko on turn 2
  • Use the spells you have to make food tokens
  • Use Oko to just shut down your opponent’s creatures and gain life 
  • Stall out the game til you have the chance to attack and win

4)Simic food

But he was too strong so he got banned the end

Blue and green are all you need for this deck to work. Green ramps incredibly with these cards and blue just gives you access to oko. The deck is really a mono green stomp that splashes blue for Oko. That was the problem, everyone splashed in an extra color because the card was so powerful. It limited standard and allowed broken combos to occur. Wield this power and make food tokens to exploit one of the strongest cards of the last 5 years.

3)Jund Food

Sure Oko was strong but at least this dragon is legal

This time let's use black, red, and green with food. Green ramps so well and has most of the food token cards in it. Red gives us a little more fire for the engine. Black removes what it needs to as we want it to.This tri-color deck utilizes the strength of each to create a sacrificing damage dealing engine that is simply to die for. 

What makes this deck fun?

  • Throwing cats in the oven
  • Korvold can eat the food for more power 
  • The food allows you to gain life
  • Crazy good ramp
  • Aggressive burn midrange playstyle 

How to play this deck

  • Deploy lands and play as many gooses as you can
  • Establish a board state by playing creatures that profit off of sacrifices
  • Once you have your sac engines give them fuel 
  • You can send cauldron familiar into witches oven for a burning loop
  • Continue to let the sac triggers conquer the board and swing out for game or burn them to death

1)Golgari Food 

bon appetit 

The golgari clan loves death. So we shall give the hoard a feast and then sacrifice it for victory. All the things we have come to learn about food are used in combination with more removal. This deck earns the top slot because it is the only one that is 100% legal in standard and not doing terribly at all. It still holds its own and represents food in the arena. Have fun with it and remember if you feel snackish just pick up a deck of food.  

What makes this deck fun?

  • Golgari hoard power
  • Is legal in standard 
  • Ramp for days
  • Plenty of removal 
  • Aggro play style 

How to play this deck

  • Deploy lands to get your colors
  • Ramp like you know you can with that goose 
  • Start creating food tokens 
  • Sacrifice the tokens as you need to power up
  • Use removal to create openings and swing out for game
