With January and February in the books we are pulling the data to prepare you for the coming weeks. This data set contains nearly 900 and is our best look at post-ban Modern. We will comb over the expansive data set to establish the leading archetypes as well as the best performing mainboard and sideboard cards in the Modern format. Make sure to compare this data side-by-side with the previous data set to see how things have changed.
All data has been pulled from mtgtop8.com. The data set contains nearly 900 decklists from January and February tournament results. Archetypes that comprised 5% or more of the dataset have been identified above. Individual cards have been ranked by dominance rating. This is calculated by multiplying the percent of decks they appear in by the average number of copies that appear in said decks. For frame of reference, a card that appears in 25% of decks as a two of will have a 0.5 dominance rating. For a hypothetical, 100-player tourney this means that there would be 0.5 copies of said card per player in the room.
