Hey everyone RHacker93 here with a special summary of the July top 50 ladder. I figured since we missed last month it’d be fun to have an extra fleshed-out ladder with some neat data! So what me and some other folks have done is snapped an image of the top 50 from Bagoum in the last few seconds of the season and then have managed to gather data from 47 out of the 50 players on what they were playing as well as collected and compiled deck lists from 31 of them! Without further ado though here is your officially unofficial July top 50!
Top 50 Data
Thoughts on the Top 50:
The top 50 list doesn’t seem super surprising to me. The most common deck we see is Wanderer Ragnora which is of little surprise given the popularity and power of the deck. The second most commonly played archetype goes to Zir’an healing variants of both the tempo and control variety. In third place is Strategos when you combine it with its Titan Strategos variant, which were both played in multiple instances. All in all though the most popular archetype only made up 16% of the meta which meant that the field had quite a wide variety of decks overall.
Top 10 Data
Thoughts on top 10:
Now where the spread of top 50 was fairly predictable the spread of top 10 seems to have some slightly more surprising data. Here Wanderer Ragnora has actually been displaced as the most popular deck by Fault and is tied as the second most popular archetype alongside Wanderer Zirix. In addition to this the success of Wanderer Zirix and Fault means that while Vetruvian only made up 10.5% of the lists of the top 50 it has made up 27.8% of the top 10. Another surprising feature of the top 10 is that while Vanar made up only 3.2% of the top 50 they actually share equal representation with Songhai and Abyssian within the top 10 and also interestingly Kara is the only Vanar general represented in the top 10.
Top 50 Deck Lists
I asked each of the top 50 players for up to 3 decks which they thought helped them climb within S rank.
