Looking for some direction early on in this Theros Beyond Death draft format? We’ve got some card rankings to help you out.

These lists are generated by a machine learning algorithm created by Ryan Saxe based on around 100,000 of your drafts on Draftsim, starting with the Friday the set was fully revealed.

If you want to see his methodology and find out more about how these rankings can be used to make a better drafting AI, check out his recent article.

This is not the pick order used by the draft simulator and by Arena Tutor, which are intended to use an evolving, updated list. To see that tierlist, click here. You may also be interested in Draftsim’s amazing Ultimate Guide to THB Draft as well.

Ryan used a set of 11 archetypes because he assumed it would result in 10 color pairs and a multicolored deck. However, the output ended up having the 10 color pairs plus mono-black!
