Format statistics for Modern are compiled by evaluating the occurrence of each card in the format, and comparing it to the inclusion of that card in the previous iterations of the format over the 6 months prior to the start of this iteration of the format. The decks used to make these calculations have all been played competitively, and were top-ranked (e.g., "Top 8") in their tournaments.

However, there have not been a sufficient number of tournaments in the current iteration of Modern to establish a reasonable trend. So, the results below are for the previous iteration of Modern.

This iteration of Modern Format started on June 14, 2019, and was updated on July 12, 2019. The formats that are being used for comparison are Modern_2018-10-05, Modern_2019-01-25, and Modern_2019-05-03.

146 decks have been evaluated to determine these trends.
