MTG Throne of Eldraine Standard new cards performance

by MTG Decks
Being part of MTGdecks is being part of Magic History, the site started after the fall of deckcheck.net to fill the gap of the avid net deckers around the world. With this new series of articles, we want to give a better chance to our readers to get the best cards at the best prices to build their decks.


Throne of Eldraine: who is the new king?

Hello everyone, 

Yes!! Throne of Eldraine is here, and this time we wanted to try something new on MTGdecks. The Standard rotation changed everything, and the new cards are shaping format. But I'm sure that our avid readers are willing to know which cards have a chance to be the sleepers from this set (those cards that out of nowhere will skyrocket its price).

Let's try to do it programmatically  :D !!!

I gathered all the decks played in MTG Arena or Magic the Gathering Online where Throne of Eldraine was valid. With them, I've crafted a list of the Throne of Eldraine cards sorted by the number of copies played. Of course, there is a clear winner:

11.8 Ticks @CardHoarder 21.99 @CardKingdom 0 @TCGplayer

But it is also followed by some less expected ones:

4.74 Ticks @CardHoarder 8.49 @CardKingdom 0 @TCGplayer

13.33 Ticks @CardHoarder 29.99 @CardKingdom 0 @TCGplayer

0.11 Ticks @CardHoarder 1.29 @CardKingdom 0.1 @TCGplayer

As you can see in the list, Mystical Dispute has found a place on some decks sideboard, like Martin Juza's Jeskai Fire // Czech Cavalry (more about that name here). On the other side, Murderous rider and Questing beast has become a staple on their respective colours... but .... what about the others? 

I'm really looking forward to hearing your opinions after seeing the list.

As yes, without more words, here it is the complete list:
