I know this article is late, being a month into the release of Forgotten Realms, but I still wanted to get it written and out there since I greatly enjoy stats.
Halfway through Kaldheim, I was destroyed by a totally off-meta surprise win deck. I liked it so much that I figured out how to build one of my own. As of this writing, it's been nearly two set releases and I am still playing the same deck. What is this fun deck? I just call it "Walls". You can read more about it HERE . There's a couple variants of it, but I've found mine works well enough to leave it alone. There's also been no new additions to it in the past few sets, so I just keep on keeping on.
Anyway, I am still enjoying this deck, it's still fast and fun to play and the win rate is still acceptable enough to keep rolling with it.
Since I didn't post a post-gameplay stats for Kaldheim, some of the new spreadsheet changes were missed. Since then I have added a dashboard that is fed data from each of the various pages in my spreadsheet. It gives me a nice clean look of all the data in one single place.
This is what my dashboard looks like. The following screenshots are all clips from this dashboard.
One major change I had to add to this set's spreadsheet was a Mystical Archive draft/collection sheet. This was kept separate from the regular draft sheet since the MA cards aren't actually part of the Strixhaven main set. I basically just copied my collection total sheet, and modified it for just MA cards. The MA cards were not calculated into any of my Strixhaven card totals. You can find more of all of this info in the Strixhaven Post Collection stats article.
All stats recorded via hand after each match and double checked using MTGAHelper. My customized spreadsheet then calculated the rest and all of the running totals.
My only goal was 4 wins per day, and keeping the daily quests from backing up.
I completed every event, including FNM @ Home and all other extracurricular free events that were offered.
Gameplay dates range from 4/15/21 to 7/8/21.
I was pretty happy with my 63% win rate for the Walls deck. I'm still playing it a month into Forgotten Realms. The total time was about an hour less, I think one of the events overlapped one of my other items like Brawl or something. The next table shows actual game play time.
You can see I didn't really play any other decks.
I hope you enjoyed looking over these stats as much as I enjoyed recording them and working on my spreadsheet.
