In today's article, I evaluate the ten cards that I consider the most important in Dominaria United for Explorer!Edit Article
Explorer. If you want a more in-depth analysis, I wrote a complete review for Pioneer recently, and many of the additions I've presented in this article can be considered in Explorer as well. It is important to note that, although both formats are significantly similar and share a card pool and a banlist, the lack of certain pieces in Magic Arena creates a different scenario in the Metagame due to the absence of archetypes that put some of the main decks in check today.
far more importantin Explorer than in Pioneer because the need to interact with the opponent is crucial while piloting a creature-oriented list, given that the main archetypes of the format are aimed at removals (Rakdos Midrange), controlling the board (Azorius Control), or closing a combo (Greasefang). The new addition provides another way to protect your creatures from sweepers, or delay your opponent's explosive threats, like a high-impact Planeswalker, or some spell on the occasional ramp deck that you know will end the game, like Genesis Ultimatum and the like. In addition, Anointed Peacekeeper also prevents the deliberate activation of abilities like Witch's Oven, making it relevant against Rakdos Sacrifice and other archetypes that normally prey on lists with small creatures. It's a great addition to Humans, Selesnya Company, a good sideboard piece for Angels and the like, and seems like safe crafting to me if you play one of those lists.
