Nothing. The "" corresponds to the match slot within a custom agenda
command. With todo and tags searches will search for a match, the agenda
does not.

You can use org-agenda-skip-function. See:

(info "(org) Special agenda views")

For the scenario above, you could use:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(org-add-agenda-custom-command
 '("x" "Agenda without todos" agenda ""
   ((org-agenda-skip-function '(org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'todo 'todo)))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Best,
Matt
