Alchemy Metagame

Explore the best decks in the metagame for Alchemy, for both best of one (bo1) and best of three (bo3). Our metagame data is provided by mtgmeta.io, and the tier list and rankings are carefully curated based on a variety of factors and sources by our expert players. Updated for Alchemy Horizons: Baldur’s Gate.

  • Click on the deck archetype name to go to MTG Meta and find detailed statistics on the deck, and the latest decklists representing it from tournaments.
  • On the tier list table, click on the deck archetype name to find the latest decklists representing it from Mythic ladder, events, and tournaments. Each deck will be ranked in numerical order as well as tier order. The higher something is within the tier, the better it is than other decks.
  • The tier list is updated weekly along with a metagame snapshot article if applicable.
  • The metagame matrix measures matches between each popular deck and how they fare against each other.

Metagame Snapshot

Our weekly metagame snapshot provide analysis on the standout decks, whether they stand out for their strength, weaknesses, or they have a large change in positioning.


Bo1 Alchemy

Legend
  • 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 One 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 metas.
  • Tier 3: Either these decks are poorly positioned or have a lot of power/consistency issues. These are decks that see play, but are generally worse choices than your other options.
  • Tier 4: Off-meta or decks that are not in the rankings, but we have coverage on.

  • Tier 1: Decks are selected by their strong win rate versus other decks (greater than 50%), the probability of encountering them, and a minimum meta share and threshold being met.
  • Tier 2: Tier 2 follows the same parameters as the tier 1 decks, but don’t have as high of a win rate (less than 50%) and/or meta share.
  • Tier 3: Decks that either have a low meta share or a low win rate.
  • Tier 4: Off-meta decks – not enough meta share to be reliable or a low win rate.
