We look at the last decks played by the Top 1000 players and find out what they have used most.

Introduction

We log the deck that every top ladder player use at the end of the season, to produce a Leaderboard Decks section. By looking at the decks used by the Top 1000 (and Top 200) players, we can get a fairly good idea of which cards and decks are performing the best. By recording the exact deck used by the players instead of aggregating card stats over an arbitrary period before the end of season, we can see what the players decided to use in their final and crucial battle that cemented their fate.

Originally, we were going to provide the data for Top 1000 players only. But as always, we know that some of our users prefer looking at stats just for Top 200 players. So we have also included charts for Top 200 for completeness. As you can see, the difference between the two are minimal, but with a larger sample size, some cards do tend to be played more in Top 1000 than in Top 200.

Besides providing the chart, we will provide a short analysis as well as the raw data for you to download.

Also check out the exact decks played by the Top 200 players if you wish to get inspired!

Analysis

Whether it is Top 200 or Top 1000, a few win conditions stand out as the most used by the top players: Graveyard, Giant, Hog Rider, Balloon, Lava Hound, Royal Hogs.

At the bottom end of the spectrum, win conditions like Electro Giant, Goblin Giant (often paired with Sparky), and Elixir Golem mare all rarely picked on Top Ladder.

Cards that are in the middle may come as a surprised to players in the lower arena. Golem, X-Bow and Goblin Barrel are all win conditions that are at the mid-range of the pack. These cards are often picked out by players in Mid Ladder as the most annoying, and often calling for their nerfs — but as you can see, they are rarely picked at the very top of the Ladder. Thus suggesting that they are in fact much more balanced than you might think.

Endnote

We have a new set of balance changes going live after season reset on Monday (April 4th), so the card usage will likely not be the same as this month. Which ones do you think will come up on top at the end of the April Season in 2022?
