The “Meta Insight” series showcases the differences between popular ladder and tournament decklists, the statistics on matchups for each of the archetypes, as well as general stats regarding the format (“Stats corner”). Each of the matchup sections has a dropdown selection that lets you select the deck archetype, as well as a slider for cut-off for the number of recorded games (set to 50 games by default) for each of the individual matchups.

Stats corner

Notes on the Ladder Performance chart

The first chart in the Stats Corner is a table sorted based on so called “Score” of a particular deck archetype. The deck archetypes are assigned to arbitrary score ranges for different tiers (>80%, >65%, >55% and <55% for tiers 1 through 4, respectively). The table also lists win percentages and relative frequencies of the deck archetypes with their respective weekly changes. For information on previous weeks, use the “Week” dropdown menu in the top left corner of the chart.

How is score calculated?

The score system is loosely based on the one used in Vicious Syndicate’s Data Reaper reports. Each of the archetypes is assigned 2 score values, one based on its popularity (Rel. Frequency) and one based on its winrate. Each of those lies in the range from 0 to 100. For the winrate, the highest winrate (in the sample) is set to 100 of the “Winrate Score” and the lowest winrate is set to 0 of the “Winrate Score”. The most popular archetype has 100% Relative Frequency, and 0% Rel. Frequency corresponds to 0 recorded games. Both of those use a simple linear correlation between the type of score and the corresponding recorded value.

The overall score is a weighted average of the “Winrate Score” and “Rel. Frequency”, with the weight defined by the Meta score parameter, which can be adjusted using the slider at the top right of the chart. A value of 0 means that the decks are listed in order of descending popularity, and a 100 means a list in order of descending winrate. A value of 50 means a simple average of the two scores. A deck with 100% overall score is the theoretical best deck in the format, since it means that it has the best winrate and is also the most popular archetype (e.g., PDK Dragon or Neutral Blood would have 100% score during their heyday).

Generally, the best decks are the ones that win the most games, but some of those can be very uncommon on ladder, which leads to greater variance. To factor in that fact, the default weight used here is 80%, heavily skewed towards winrate, with a small (20%) factor of popularity, which means that uncommon decks with very high reported winrate (e.g. Nep Shadow as of 05/08/18) are placed lower than decks with lesser winrates (e.g. Vengeance Blood) that see significantly more play, because the former “lose” most of the ~20% percent of their score based on their popularity.
