Impact of Theros Beyond Death in every format

The set has already 1 month of competitive play, how did it impact each format?

By Leon, 02/20/20

Theros Beyond Death is the return of the Gods of Theros to Standard. The set was launched on January 24, 2020, with the possibility of playing on MTGO 1 week before. The set has already 1 month of competitive play, how did it impact each format? These lists were made using our Metagame page: we collected information from the 5-0 decks, Playoff winners, Challenge and other tournaments. The job here was to process the cards that most appeared on these winning decks; just a description of what’s going on in each format’s metagame.
