Throne of Eldraine impact in each format

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

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 [link](https://cardsrealm.com/metagame/standard)(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. For this specific case we reviewed the metagame of each format in the last 15 days. *STANDARD* 9. [card](Fervent Champion) - 88 copies in 22 decks (22% of metagame) 8.

[card](Thornwood Falls) - 42 copies in 13 decks (11% of metagame) 2. [card](Mystic Sanctuary) - 49 copies in 21 decks (18% of metagame) [image](https://static.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/ema-eternal-masters-wind-scarred-crag-249.jpg) 1.

[card](Oko, Thief of Crowns) - 158 copies in 57 decks (25% of metagame) *ANALYZE* [card](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 [card](Brazen Borrower // Petty Theft), [card](Once Upon a Time), [card](Oko, Thief of Crowns), [card](Mystical Dispute), [card](Mystic Sanctuary) , [card](Gilded Goose) among many other cards appear with over 10% of the metagame in various formats! [card](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.

Can Cling to Dust be an option in Modern?


We're here once again to comment on the Theros Beyond Death spoilers. [link](https://cardsrealm.com/artigos/testing-heliod-sun-crowned-combo-in-modern)(In the last article about the new edition we commented on Heliod, Sun-Crowned combo decks), This time we will comment on a CMC 1 card that may enter the position of already known Modern and/or Pioneer staples. [image](https://static.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/thb-theros-beyond-death-cling-to-dust-87.jpg) [card](Cling to Dust) is a 1-mana black instant that allows you to exile a card from a graveyard, if it is a creature, you gain 3 life; Any other kind, you draw a card. It also has escape, exiling 5 cards and paying 4 mana. *WHY [card](CLING TO DUST) IS A GOOD CARD? * Drawing one card for 1 black mana is not new to Magic. We had the following cards with similar texts: [card](Aphotic Wisps), [card](Cremate), [card](Nighthaze) and [card](Foulmire Knight // Profane Insight). Wizards of the Coast seems to realize that these cards have never seen a game and decided to give steroids to the new spoiler: they added the escape mechanic and gave the new card an important versatility. * Card advantage *: Mostly [card](Cling to Dust) is a 1 to 1 trade, but there is a possibility, when there are mana and cards in the graveyard, that it will be 2 to 1. Make no mistake, many Modern games are resolved before you can use escape, I would say that this card advantage is not ideal, but it does exist. * Life gain *: Earning 3 life by exiling a creature is the worst ability of this card, but it is a possibility that depending on the game is important. Against Burn or extremely aggressive decks, this card is a counter to [card](Lightning Bolt) for only 1 mana. *Gravehate*: Graveyard disruption for only 1 card is not ideal, but can win you games. Exiling the [card](Snapcaster Mage) target can win you matches against control. Other targets: Exile [card](Sword of the Meek) to prevent Simic Whirza's combo; exiling an artifact can end [card](Traverse the Ulvenwald) delirium against a Death's Shadow; exile a [card](Conflagrate) or [card](Creeping Chill) against dredge among other options ... *Can be played from the graveyard *: Being discarded does not lose 100% of its value. Decks that play with their graveyard like Mardu Pyromancer can take advantage of this card. * Storm Counter *: Again I will use Mardu Pyromancer as an example: the deck wants to play a lot of spells to create token. [card](Cling to Dust) can be played 2 times if you have enough mana. Remember that Escape is cast! At worst [card](Cling to Dust) can be cycled. We're talking about the Modern format, reigned by fetchlands from both your deck and your opponent's deck. * WHICH CARDS COMPETE WITH [card](CLING TO DUST)? * We thought in: [card](Opt), [card](Serum Visions) or [card](Hieroglyphic Illumination). [image](https://static.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/xln-ixalan-opt-65.jpg) [image](https://static.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/mm3-modern-masters-2017-serum-visions-49.jpg) [image](https://static.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/akh-amonkhet-hieroglyphic-illumination-57.jpg) The three cards represent Card Advantage or Card Selection in Blue. Many professionals consider scry 1 to be draw 0.5. Therefore, in their view, [card](Opt) is draw 1.5 card instant, [card](Serum Visions) is draw 2 cards sorcery. [card](Hieroglyphic Illumination) is very similar to [card](Cling to Dust), just cycling at the beginning of the game but evolving to a card advantage at the end. [image](https://static.cardsrealm.com/images/cartas/en/mh1-modern-horizons-ransack-the-lab-103.jpg) We're even seeing [card](Ransack the Lab) being played [link](https://cardsrealm.com/decks/search?format=Modern&last_change=1&tag=metagame&cards=%5B20601%5D&)(in 5-0 Mardu lists in Modern). Two mana for 1 draw and a little more depending on how your deck was built. *DECKS WITH [card](CLING TO DUST) * * Grixis Control * Recently, a [link](https://cardsrealm.com/decks/1cgf-nextep-competitive-constructed-league)(Grixis Control made 5-0 in MTGO), I decided to remove the 2 [card](Into the Story) and 1 [card](Murderous Rider // Swift End) to put 3 [card](Cling to Dust) in place. [card](Drown in the Loch) does not compete directly with [card](Cling to Dust) since Cling to Dust can target his owner graveyard. [deck](27104) *Mardu Pyromancer* Another deck that has already been mentioned here: Mardu Pyromancer. [link](https://cardsrealm.com/decks/1dn4-salty12za-competitive-constructed-league)(We saw another 5-0 list in MTGO) and replaced the 3 [card](Ransack the Lab) with 3 [card](Cling to Dust). I see a lot of synergy in this deck! [deck](27105) *Doesn't agree or we lost something about this card? You can comment that we will respond! *
