Manaleak.com Birmingham Standard PPTQ Top 8 Decklists!

In a long day of Magic dominated by all sorts of different decks, it was Henry Channing playing an innovative take on the Haunted Dead + Prized Amalgam deck who came out on top! Black/Green strategies were definitely a dominant force in the Top 8, clinching 3 out of the top 4 slots. What else will this standard format have to offer?
