For the next day leading up to the release of Throne of Eldraine, a number of streamers will be showcasing MTG Arena with a stacked, unlimited account. While we are busy reviewing the new cards in Throne of Eldraine for our guides on the upcoming Play Any Deck and Win Every Card Challenge events, the talented deck builders and streamers are putting in work to test out the new limited and Standard format.
Let’s find out what our favorite players are brewing, and find out what the powerhouses of Throne of Eldraine are! This post will be kept up to date throughout the day as we find some interesting decks and ideas.
Mardu Knights is the real deal, despite the painful manabase.
Jam the two most powerful Planeswalkers in Standard (Teferi, Time Raveler and Narset, Parter of Veils) and Fires of Invention – what could go wrong? Nothing it seems!
Caleb Durward shares some of his insights during his time in the event.
Happily Ever After is looking to be a fun win condition, enabled more easily by Planar Celebration.
Magic Pro League player Andrea Mengucci has some sweet builds for us, especially this Izzet one where he was most impressed with The Royal Scions over-performing. Irencrag Pyromancer is also seems incredibly powerful, almost like Arclight Phoenix.
@Em_TeeGee was able to test a lot of different decks for this event, more than 14 in fact. Torbran, Thane of Red Fell seemed to impress the most, acting as a great finisher in future Red decks.
The Simic Food deck seems like a pretty fast linear deck that relies on Feasting Troll King and Witch’s Oven. Fae of Wishes is an interesting inclusion as it can fetch the pieces from the sideboard.
Wolves is a tribal possibility, with cards like Wicked Wolf impressing in play. Combined with Once Upon a Time, Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves and Nightpack Ambusher and the new Garru, Cursed Huntsman, the deck could get really interesting.
Fires of Invention and Escape to the Wilds are just waiting to be broken, and this is a start.
Throne of Eldraine limited format seems to be a sweet one, and it will be interesting to see if there are any overpowered archetypes.
