Written by derflippi on September 04, 2011




Magic-League holds A LOT of tournaments, and we have A LOT of data gathered on decks, players and formats. As a courtesy to our members and remembering our retired staff member Laplie; I'm thinking publishing collations of the data (or similar data) on a semi-regular basis.

Without further ado, I present to you the card statistics from all MODERN tournaments run on magic-league:
1. Maindeck nonland cards
2. Maindeck land cards
3. Sideboard cards

About the statistics: The percentages for that card in the respective top30 NOT the percentage the card is played in modern as a whole. The counts are taken from all tournaments (minis, trials, masters) played since the first modern mini was created.

Surprised to see that Tec Edge is that low.

Isn't mental misstep banned? How is it in top sideboard cards?


by sgt_pepper on 2011-09-04 08:23 CET

Yeah but i think he took ALL modern minis, trials etc. And we had quite a few before the bannings were announced, so misstep was still legal there and probably a highly used sb card.
