10/01/18 ~ 10/07/18 Statistic
In the second week of the OotT Unlimited meta, Bloodcraft continued its dominance, with its usage increasing to 25.9% from 24.8%. Shadowcraft is still holding its place, although its usage dropped by about 3%. Runecraft has dropped to 4th place in usage this week, even though its usage increased since last week. The new 3rd place, Dragoncraft, has increased in usage by almost 4%. Swordcraft usage has also increased significantly since last week.
Win Rates by Classes
Although Bloodcraft has a dominant popularity over Shadowcraft, the win percentage tells a different story. Shadowcraft has produced an impressive win percentage this week, nearing 60%! Dragoncraft and Bloodcraft are also part of the elite group, with Swordcraft falling out with an almost 5% drop in win percentage. Forestcraft and Portalcraft, two classes finding its spot in the meta, have fallen even further in win percentage.
Usage and Win Rates by Archetypes
|Archetypes||# Used||# of Wins||Win %|
|Roach (OTK) Forestcraft||558||251||45.0%|
|D. Shift Runecraft||382||140||36.6%|
The mover of the week was Face Dragoncraft, rising to third place this week from ninth place last week. This deck build produced an outstanding win percentage last week, and this week is no different. What is noteworthy is the two ‘other’ categories for Bloodcraft and Dragoncraft, which may either be new archetypes or misclassified data from the respective popular archetypes. Although the identity of the Bloodcraft category is unknown (since Vengeance and Aggro are categories already), the ‘other’ Dragoncraft deck is most likely a Disdain variant. Mysteria Runecraft is also a deck to watch out for, being the only deck to produce high win percentage outside of the three popular classes.

Darkfeast Bat Bloodcraft’s dominance is yet to be contested in the OotT meta. The deck boasts an impressive 52% win rate, despite its losing matchup against the other top 3 decks in the environment. Just like in the Rotation meta, the Bat deck also has difficulty with Midrange Swordcraft, due to its shortage of board-wiping cards. Finally, OTK Forestcraft is generally strong against all Bloodcraft archetypes, and the Bat deck is no exception. The ‘other’ category for Bloodcraft, as discussed above, is an anomaly and it is difficult to discern if this is misclassified data or not.

Midrange Shadowcraft is second in popularity, but is in its own league in terms of win percentage. This week, the deck produced an impressive 61.8% win rate, almost 10% higher than the Darkfeast Bat deck! Consistent with this impressive figure, the matchup spread for Midrange Shadowcraft is impeccable, having an advantage over virtually all decks in the meta.

Dragoncraft has overtaken Runecraft to take third place in popularity this week, with Face Dragoncraft being the main contributor to this success. Next in line, the ‘other’ Dragoncraft category stands out, and it is not clear what the identity of this category is. Face Dragoncraft, as its name suggests, is an extremely aggressive deck focused on throwing followers with high attack points directly at the opponent’s life points. The deck is even more powerful now with the inclusion of Galmieux, which is able to control the board and apply burn damage at the same time.
