Spring Cup, Paris - Meta Report > News
2018-05-01 11:00:00

With a total of 126 players, the Spring Cup Paris was ready to start! This is exactly the number of players we had at the Winter Cup, Milan and it's nice to compare those two events. We saw lots of diffrent Nations and we would like to thank everyone who showed up for this great event. It's always a plessure with you guys - Thank you! We are glad to have such a great community.

As usual and before we go into the Top 8 - We would like to give you some information on the "Meta" of this tournament and compare it to Milan. It is really nice to see, that the Meta is still so colorful and every element is popular.

As you can see, Earth is the most played element at the Tournament and Fire is the least played one this time. Compared to Milan we have the following changes:

Earth became very popular with Opus V and Water lost some interest and we saw more multi-colored decks this time - but is Earth the big Winner this time?
The most played Decks of this tournament where:

  1. Mono Earth
  2. Mono Lightning
  3. Mono Ice

Now we take a look at the Top 8:

2x Fire/Ice, 2x Mono Lightning, 1x Mono Water, 1x Water/Lightning, 1 Earth/Wind and 1x Wind/Earth/Water made it to Top 8. Where is our Mono Earth?? Like we had the situation with Mono Lightning in Milan, none of the most played deck made it to Top 8. - Also there is no Mono Ice in Top 8 this time - who saw that comming?

From this points we leave this up to you to discuss and go to our Top 8 Decks:
