View Full Version : Draft Archetype statistical analysis thread

05-24-2014, 02:30 PM
I have put together a spreadsheet that (as it accumulates data) will give matchup analysis and play/draw win percentage for limited decks. All I need now is data! Perhaps the community can help me out, and then I can write up a report and give some useful information to the community. Here is all I need from you:

For each game played:
1. Did the Winner play or draw?
2. What was the winner playing?
3. what was the loser playing?

The possible draft archetypes are the five mono shards (ex. mono blood), all the two shard combinations (ex. wild/ruby) and the three specialty archetypes, Shinhare, Dwarves/robots, and Mill. These three are separate because they can be multiple shard combinations but focus on a specific win strategy rather than just the best cards for the chosen shards.

So as an example of what I'm looking for:

1. Played
2. Blood/Diamond
3. Wild/Sapphire

Another example:

1. Draw
2. Mono Wild
3. Mill

Seems pretty clear to me. Play/draw, winner, loser, that's all I need.

Help me collect data!

I'll try to remember to contribute to your spreadsheet.

Subtypes are also "lifegain" (Incantation of Right, Pally), "human" (Hero, Ben), "flight" (Air Superiority), and "inspire", though they're harder to pull of in most drafts. There are probably even more.
