The Finisher

Somebody call Frank Karsten! Four-Color Kethis broke Standard at the most recent Mythic Championship Qualifier Weekend. Only a few people played the new combo deck, with both Ondrej Strasky and Stanislav Cifka managing 5-1s on Day 2 to qualify for MC5. With those impressive results, it seems the Czech is in the mail! Eh, get it? They're bringin' Kethis back. Well regardless, overly complicated graveyard-based iterative combo decks and StanCifka go together like Erin and the "block" button. But it kind of came out of nowhere, so tell me: what's the next big surprise deck to take the metagame by storm?
