Helloeveryone, we would be remiss if we did not mention the major SolForge event that reached its epic conclusion over the weekend – the Forgewatch Invitational. The pool play of the event cut to a Top 8 that played out on Saturday, featuring the following players:
The talk of the tournament was the “Thunderbots” deck, an Uterran/Alloyin strategy using Thundersaur and Arcflight Squadron alongside Weirwood Patriarch to create significant threats out of smaller creatures. When the dust cleared, however it was Bludex and his Nekrium/Tempys Grimgaunt deck that emerged victorious in a hard fought battle!
As for our tournament stats – this week we’re going to dig a little deeper and check out the Top 50 winners in the past week for both constructed and draft play!
This list includes a number of familiar faces. TinMan showed up last week on our lifetime winner list in second place, and he’s apparently dead set on overtaking Technonaut as lifetime leader with all the winning he’s been doing! The third winningest player, wrapter, is none other than Magic: the Gathering Pro Tour Player of the Year Josh Utter-Leyton, whose skills in that arena have clearly translated well to SolForge. Featured Streamer and SolForgeGame.com writer TinyGrimes also makes an appearance high on the list, demonstrating that he’s clearly a capable player in addition to deckbuilder and theorist.
We have to give special mention to Hope, who strung together a full half of his 66 wins in a row, topping the Longest Streak charts for the week with an incredible 11 consecutive undefeated constructed tournament finishes!
This week’s biggest draft winners also looks familiar, with cam101 and bannedtim battling for the first and second place slots much like they were for the lifetime win list we saw last week. In fact, a mere eight wins separates them now in the lifetime chart, with bannedtim narrowly keeping his lead. Who will end up in the lead after next week?
Want to see your name on these lists in the future? Well, you know what to do – get in the tournaments and start winning!
Now let’s take a quick look at draft stats…
|Forge Guardian Beta||Rare||58%|
The most popular rare card is Alloyin General, whose attack-boosting power is highly sought after to make favorable trades in battle. Next up is Forge Guardian Beta, probably more for its gigantic Level Three body than for its ability to aid in the summoning of Forge Guardian Omega. A pair of growing Uterra creatures come next, before combo-riffic Tarsus Deathweaver, the huge body of Cypien Infiltrator, and a trio of Savants, with only Steelshaper not finding its way onto the list. Last, but not least, is the ever-growing Necroslime, who has taught more than one opponent that failure to kill it right away is a certain road to death.
What do you think about this list? Are any of these rares overvalued? What do you think should be on top? Sound off in the comments!
