Single Scoop: Invoking Justice on Standard

Gameplan 

We're finally at a point in Standard where we've got enough big bombs to reanimate. The best format for a reanimator deck is also best-of-one as opponents may not be ready for your graveyard gameplan, so you'll be able to steal some games.

Our key spells are going to be Invoke Justice and Return Upon the Tide. At first, Invoke Justice seems a bit ambitious in a four-color deck but with most of our mana sources producing white and our ability to filter our draws thanks to Faithful Mending and Prismari Command to loot and produce a treasure, we're more likely to have the four White mana we need.

Our reanimation targets are pretty straightforward. We're hoping to run into low to the ground decks as Toxrill, the Corrosive is a haymaker against mono white if on board. We've also got Valomachus to hopefully chain into another reanimation spell! If you're worried about removal, grabbing a Jin-Gitaxias isn't the worst idea as it forces an opponent to remove it twice. Olivia is a nice singleton to hopefully sneak in and reanimate something big. Just keep in mind whatever you reanimate with Olivia gets exiled if she dies!

Gameplan

The deck is definitely clunky, and I think I would run another Jin-Gitaxias in the deck. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do against control decks as their answers and counterspells can be a bit rough, so let's just hope that we can get there on the back of Koma, Cosmos Serpent. Other than that, our matchups should be great everywhere else!
