Gamespot Japan Tournament #2 Top 10 Cards Used

Summary: The data is directly from Gamespot Japan. These are the top 10 cards based on the use from all participants of the tournament.

# 1: Flame Magus (95%)

# 2: Verzar Swordman (90%)

# 3: Visvar Vaas Zealot (87%)

# 4: Aluhja Zealot (86%)

# 5: Tolicore Zealot (85%)

# 6: Noram Zealot (84%)

# 7: Aluhja Priestess (78%)

# 8: Summoner Mesmer’s Errand (71%)

# 9: Partmole Flame Lizard (70%)

#10:Fissure of Goghlie (67%)

% here is calculated by number of cards in the entries divided by number of decks. Since all these cards have limit up to 3 per deck, 100% here does not mean all decks have the card.

This ranking clearly shows the popularity of the Missionary/Zealot deck is still persisting in Japan. Since most Zealot deck user would be using 3 of each Zealots with some perhaps 2, minimum of 1/3 and as high as 1/2 of entries here can be estimated as Missionary deck.

As for ratio between Set.1 and Set.2 cards, it was 58% for Set.1 and 42% for Set.2.

    No suprises in that list. In fact, if asked to guess I would have come up with about the same off the top of my head, although in a slightly different order.

    Parmetic Holy Feast didn’t even made it into the top 10. It was replaced by the Errand, which is quite popular in or against zealots decks. Amazing what 4 creatures can do, isn’t it? Remove the zealots, and Parmetic will jump back in the list…

    i wouldn’t think zealots would be in the top 10 cause most players who are on forums a lot don’t use them. atleast i would never use them like i wouldn’t ever use battleship aswell. these creatures just ruin the game.
