Ikoria best performing cards over the first weekend

Hello everyone, 

Yes!! Ikoria and its monster are here!. As we did with Theros, here is our article about their impact on the metagame. We have gathered the info from more than 30 tournaments over the weekend to see what have been the most played cards from this new set. 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 compiled all the decks played over this weekend in MTG Arena or Magic the Gathering Online where Ikoria was valid. With them, I've crafted a list of the Ikoria cards sorted by the number of copies played. Of course, there is a clear winner:

Gyruda, Doom of Depths
0.01 Tix

But it is also followed by some less expected ones:

Raugrin Triome
2.72 Tix

Shark Typhoon
12.95 Tix

Heartless Act
0.02 Tix

As everyone noticed Gyruda is making an impact... and yes it has been sent to temporary confinement due to an MTGO bug, but his presence is still noticeable. But the list is quite interesting by itself. I'm really looking forward to hearing your opinions after seeing the list.

And now, without further ado, here it is the complete list:

# Card Name Number of times played Price Image
1st Gyruda, Doom of Depths 121 $69.99
2nd Raugrin Triome 77 $10.94
3rd Shark Typhoon 62 $3.64
