A control deck quietly sneaking under the Standard radar is this red-white control build played by Jody Dunnville to a recent PTQ Top 8. Powerful planeswalkers and creature token generators provide win conditions alongside an Obelisk of Alara and a single Magma Phoenix. Spot removal, board sweepers, and Scepter of Dominance keep creatures under control. Quite an innovative look at the present world of Standard!
