Alchemy Snapshot: September 15, 2022
Dominaria United has been here for a few weeks and every format has undergone a pretty big shakeup! While Black has been the name of the game in nearly every format, Bo1 Alchemy after rotation has remained relatively unchanged from before rotation. With aggro decks still being the top dog, you can expect many shades of it in the Bo1 queues.
Tier 1 Decks
Tier 2 Decks
Tier 3 Decks
Tier 4 Decks
- Tier 1: The best of the best. The most consistent decks that sport the highest win rates and generally, the highest play rates.
- Tier 2: Very solid decks that are slightly lacking in some capacity, whether it’s consistency or power compared to the Tier 1 archetypes. These can still be strong choices for ladder or for tournaments if you are highly skilled with the archetype or play them during the right meta.
- Tier 3: Either these decks are poorly positioned or have a lot of power and consistency issues. These are decks that see play, but are generally worse choices than your other options.
- Tier 4: Off-meta or archived decks that are not currently in the rankings. We may also have coverage on them, as going against the meta is always a fun challenge!
