Current meta and what counters what

Hi Folks,

I´m Thixo and here are some of my observations from the current meta and decks.
Please feel free to discuss my oberservations with yous :slight_smile:

From what I have seen good decks are:

Red Combat by xged
Red Rush by happyjo
Yellow Tempo by ESofDawn
Yellow Rush by Donpork
Midrange Green by Donpork
Blue/Red Bargain
Green/Yellow Sacrifise
Green/Red Crackthorn

Here is a table which decks counter others (according to my opinion)
0/0.5 = even/very close
+1/-1 = moderate advantage/disadvantage
+2/-2 = significant advantage/disadvantage
+3/-3 = big advantage/disadvantage

Opponent /
R Com R Rush Y Tempo Y Rush G Mid B/G Jump B/R Bargain G/Y Sac G/R Crackthorn
R Com X +2 +1 +2 -3 -0.5 -1 +1.5 -1.5
R Rush -2 X +1 0 -3 0 +1 +2 0
Y Tempo -1 -1 X -2 +2 +0.5 +0.5 0 +1
Y Rush -2 0 +2 X -3 0 +1 +2 0
G Mid +3 +3 -2 +3 X -0.5 -1 -2 -0.5
B/G Jump +0.5 0 -0.5 0 +0.5 X +0.5 +0.5 -0.5
B/R Bargain +1 -1 -0.5 -1 +1 -0.5 X -0.5 +0.5
G/Y Sac -1.5 -2 0 -2 +2 -0.5 +0.5 X +0.5
G/R Crackthorn +1.5 0 -1 0 +0.5 +0.5 -0.5 -0.5 X



Cross table would be better.

R Combat vs:
R Rush (+2)
Y Tempo (+0.5)
Y Rush (+2)
G Mid (-3)
BG Jump (-0.5)
BR Bargain (-0.5)
GY Sacrifise (+1)
GR Crackthorn (-1)

x - advantage
+3 - big advantage (4:1 win ratio)
+2 - significant advantage (3:1 win ratio)
+1 - moderate advantage (2:1 win ratio)
+0.5 - small advantage (1.5:1 win ratio)
0 - even (1:1 win ratio)
(…and all in between)

Thanks for the advise. I already implemented it.

I wonder what the sample size is.

Also, you can tech cards in which tends to make things more complicated. For example, I teched my Crackthorn Deck with Grim Guards which massively increases the winrate against Rush (50/50 vs Green Rush, 80/20 vs Red Rush (small sample size for me personally, as I lost the matchup once out of 5 battles to some ridiculous draws involving Gift of Steel), and YRush is about 70/30) but does also obviously make some matchups worse, including the mirror.

Of course there is always the possibility to tech against certain matchups. This chart should more or less just show which decks are generally good against others.
As I mentioned above I would be happy to discuss my opinions. These are just my obervetions with a limited sample size. Is there a page to get data?

You wrote numbers from the perspective of columns instead of rows which is less intuitive to me. (I updated my previous replay)

You should make this into a guide on the hub. It’s amazingly helpful. You could even link it to the “archetypical” deck for each one, just as an example

I agree with Xged, perspective from row is more usual.

I changed the rows and clolums. I also added some links to decks I find good.
Unfortunatelly as a new member I cant´t make post with more than 5 links.

Thats why I added the last 4 decks here. (I´ll change it as soon as I´m allowed to)
