Here’s a graphical overview:


Overall, Siege Rhino is still the card to beat, but all of the five clans from Khans of Tarkir are included in the top of the archetype list. The rise of Mardu in particular is noteworthy; many players followed Brad Nelson's lead. Besides the five clans, there's a whole slew of mono-color and two-color decks being played today as well, so Standard appears to be quite diverse.
