musta tops the draft charts this week with nearly 200 wins, a pretty incredible feat, due in no small part to his twenty-one undefeated finishes on the week – over twice as many 4-0′s as anyone else on the draft charts. Seyfert is not far behind at 186 wins, with valpok the remaining player in triple digits with 131 wins on the week.

How were they getting those impressive records? Well, probably by taking some of these cards…

Brighttusk Sower 45%
Skyknight Glider 43%
Grove Matriarch 43%
Nargath Bruiser 42%
Aetherforge Oracle 40%

Matrix Warden has become an almost permanent fixture on the top common list, with a pick ratio over 10% higher than anything else, which is almost as big a gap as separates the rest of the cards on the list. It looks like many players are still sticking to what they learned in the early days of draft, as most of the cards on the list are still from the first set, though Nyrali Symbiote and Aetherforge Oracle have already made their way into the list of most popular commons after just a few weeks.

What do you think? Are these the best commons out there?

    Win percentage is a cool stat to have. Although at end of day, it doesn’t matter much to me what my win percentage is, since I like to play the game and use a plethora of decks in the queues to test their viability.
    That being said I can definitely see having a win percentage can hinder the amount of solforge many players play as well as what decks they would use. If there were any sort of rewards or benefits to a win percentage, like invites to a pro tourney or something then this problem would even be more noticeable.
    Win percentages can penalize players from playing the game they enjoy, in order to be more competitive. My opinion is that I don’t think solforge needs a win percentage( at least every week) or a elo based system to be a great game. At the moment if your interested in an elo type system, there is the unofficial solforge Ladder that resets at the beginning of every month.

      i went .875 once, then got greedy and dropped to .750, then last weeks cutoff for win rate was 78%…ARGH…

      well at least im in the top 15 this week in games won…i dont see that ill play that many games this week, so i dont expect to see myself in the next edition hehe

      i dunno how other people do it… i literally spent ALL my free time this weekend playing, and only have 68 wins…man…how do people get to triple digits???haha

        as someone who has been in the top 10 of draftwins since I started playing, let me tell you: its mostly about running away from life! It is a bit disturbing to me, that apparently nobody else in the world wastes as much time drafting sol Forge as i do, especially since I should be preparing for Magic tournaments, to finally have some success there…

        @whoever writes this: Im a girl ;-)

        @winpercentages: im also inclined to say, that its a bit problematic to publish them, though i would love to have a record of them. Im “infinite” through drafting, but thats including selling cards, since keeping up a better than 75% winpercentage is INCREDIBLY hard, if you want to draft drunk at night, which i very much do. I actually thought about stopping after my first 5 or so drafts this week, because having a win percentage of 100% (or very close to it) would have been so cool, before realizing how crazy that would be. Besides knowing, that im not that bad and that winpercentage for the week is not as important as having fun, it is really humiliating for me to see that list and not be in it :/ im sure, i cant be the only person feeling like this.

    I wonder why they decided not to include the win percentage leaderboards, it was the best part of these posts to me, and a feature I’d like to see included in the actual game some day.

    I got a 4x 4-0 streak this time around and decided to leave it at 22 won games hoping to see a win percentage leadeboard. Unfortunately, it was not to be my time to shine :(
