  • Main Topic - Top 8 Commanders for 2021

 

    1. Disclaimer: 2021 was a weird year. Neither Ryan nor I played at our LGS, nor did they open for play. Due to this Ryan was able to play less due to time restrictions. I played quite a bit in the first half of the year but began to both drop off in playing and recording games, so I would say my data represents the first half of the year.

        1. Dive in a bit here
      7. Which decks had the best win percentage?
      8. How many different decks have we played over the year
      9. How many different people did we play against this year?
