[card](Dovin's Veto) - 47 copies 38. [card](Dig Through Time) - 46 copies 39. [card](Sacred Foundry) - 45 copies 40. [card](Jace, Vryn's Prodigy // Jace, Telepath Unbound) - 44 copies 41. [card](Mana Confluence) - 44 copies 42. [card](Burning-Tree Emissary) - 44 copies 43. [card](Fry) - 43 copies 44. [card](Narset, Parter of Veils) - 42 copies 45. [card](Abrupt Decay) - 41 copies 46. [card](Tireless Tracker) - 41 copies 47. [card](Drowned Catacomb) - 40 copies 48. [card](Collected Company) - 40 copies 49. [card](Inspiring Vantage) - 39 copies 50. [card](Spell Pierce) - 39 copies I hope this list of cards helps you understand the staples of the format. *ADAPTED MODERN DECKS* We saw some Modern decks adapted to the format pool of cards. *HUMANS* [deck](17631) *AFFINITY* [deck](17609) *TOKENS* [deck](17646) *BOGLES* *COMBO DECKS* Most of combo decks in this format are about Saheeli Cat. But we saw one particular one that made 5-0: [deck](17611) The combo consists of playing [card](Jeskai Ascendancy) on 3. And on 4 playing [card](Sylvan Awakening), which will turn your lands into creatures. From now on you only have to cast spells to untap your lands to generate more mana while gaining +1/+1. The combo is fast, interesting and has consistency, the problem that needs the enchantment that cost 3 in play and spells that aren't instants, so it loses to [card](Abrupt Decay).

All Against Arena - Fires of Grixis


Hey, guys! I'm Ariel and this is *All Against Arena.* This series is all about the presentation, creation and/or adaptation of unusual or unexplored decks that, nevertheless, works great and provides what all games should provides us with: *fun!* Today, I am going to show you the deck I played last Monday, in our (portuguese-speaking) live stream, over at [link](https://www.twitch.tv/cardsrealm)(Cards Realm Twitch channel): *Fires of Grixis!* I must confess: This deck, if not the strongest, is currently one of the strongest in Arena. The synergy with the card that names it is amazing! Speaking of which, we have the enchantment of the new edition (*Throne of Eldraine*) [card](Fires of Invention), which is the main synergy between all cards. When this enchantment reaches the battlefield, it opens up a range of possibilities! So we have: 4 [card](Drawn from Dreams) and 4 [card](Narset, Parter of Veils) so we can make the best choices against our opponent, "hunting" whatever suits us best. In addition, we have 7 more planeswalkers to define the game: 3 [card](Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God), 2 [card](Chandra, Awakened Inferno) and 2 [card](Liliana, Dreadhorde General). This deck proved to be very strong against several decks from the current meta, I didn't see any major disadvantages in it. Maybe I could swap 3 [card](Rankle, Master of Pranks) with 3 [card](Murderous Rider) for better synergy and better answers against planeswalkers. I will test this substitution in the future. Check out the list: [deck](17011) But a video is worth a thousand words, so take a look at my test run - though it's in portuguese, it's worth a watch! [youtube](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfeMUAyusbk) Although we lost the first (and only) match, this deck is still great, very strong and with good answers in ranked matches. It's the deck I'm using to rank up and it has worked very well so far! I recommend this deck even more so now that [card](Field of the Dead) has been banned. Want to see more decks like this? I'm live every Monday and Thursday at 10pm at our [link](https://www.twitch.tv/cardsrealm)(portuguese-speaking Twitch channel!)
