The set Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths is more than 1 week old, how did it impact each format?

By Leon, 04/27/20, with help from our readers

Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths is a world of monsters. The set was launched on April 16, 2020 at MTGO. The set is more than 1 week old, how did it impact each format? These lists were made using our Metagame page: we collected information from the winners of Playoffs, Challenge, SCG opens, Magicfests PTQs, MagicFest Online qualifiers among others tournaments. The job here was to process the cards that most appeared on these winning decks; just a description of whatโ€™s going on in each formatโ€™s metagame.

For this specific case, we analyzed the metagame of each format in the last 15 days. Removed reprints, basic lands etc ... Also removed Competitive Leagues decklists in MTGO (5-0); due to the lists not being random, but chosen by Wizards of the Coast.
