Throne of Eldraine impact in each format

For this specific case we reviewed the metagame of each format in the last 15 days.

By Leon, 01/08/20

Throne of Eldraine was one of the strongest sets of recent times, but unfortunately it was so strong that some cards were banned. The set was released on October 4th, 2019, since then, we are already over 2 months, how it impacted each format? These lists were made using our Metagame page: We collected information from 5-0 decks, Playoff winners, Challenge and other tournaments. The job here was to process the Throne of Eldraine cards that most appeared on these winning decks; in other words, it's not my opinion but just a description of what is happening in the format.

ANALYZE

Oko, Thief of Crowns

shows that it is still a problem in formats that is not banned. Throne of Eldraine was a very strong set that managed to impact eternal formats like Legacy and Modern. Cards such as

Brazen Borrower // Petty Theft

,

Once Upon a Time

,

Oko, Thief of Crowns

,

Mystical Dispute

,

Mystic Sanctuary

,

Gilded Goose

among many other cards appear with over 10% of the metagame in various formats!

Brazen Borrower // Petty Theft

is a card that we need to keep an eye out for if Oko's ban occurs. The card has already proved to be a perfect option for Tempo decks and is gaining more and more legacy space.
