Most Popular Cards on Top Ladder in June Season 2022

July 5, 2022 · 11 min read

stats infovis

The June 2022 season has just finished and we have collected fresh new stats from Top Ladder again. In this post, we’ll first take a look at cards that perform well in the season, then we provide representative decks that utilize those cards. At the end of the post, you’ll get the raw data we used to create these charts, as well as a link to explore all of the decks.

Table of Contents

Introduction

With balance changes happening every 2 months, we have decided that it would make sense to give you a glimpse of the meta every 2 months. Specifically, we thought that we would provide these analysis at the start of the season where there are no balance changes, so you can utilize these results to inform the types of decks you can play in the following season.

Visually, it goes something like this:

  • Season 2022-06: Balance
  • Season 2022-07: Our analysis
  • Season 2022-08: Balance
  • Season 2022-09: Our analysis

You can use our Cards section to observe card usage throughout the season. For this analysis, we focus specifically on the last deck that the players use to complete their season. It goes hand-in-hand with our Leaderboard Decks feature. Or more specifically, these are the cards from the Season 2022-06 Leaderboard Decks.

As with previous analysis, we have provided data for both Top 1000 and Top 200 because some of the professional players prefer to see Top 200 results while we feel that Top 1000 provide a more holistic view of the meta.

Best Cards Top 1000

Analysis: Win Conditions

This month’s limelight was taken by Electro Giant — evenly split between Electro Giant Mirror and Electro Giant Lightning.

Goblin Drill, Balloon, Giant, Graveyard, Mortar and Goblin Drill are all almost evenly tied, with the more evergreen win-conditions Hog Rider and Lava Hound in the middle.

Of note, neither Ram Rider nor Elixir Golem were seen on the Top 200. They’re also at the bottom end in the Top 1000 Ladder.
