The Witchwood is only days away and we have now seen every single card that will be released with the launch of the expansion. A new set of cards along with the rotation that comes with the new standard year is sure to completely change the metagame picture.
What are the most powerful cards of the set? Which classes will rise and fall as a result? How will the new keywords introduced, Rush and Echo, stack up? Which new archetypes will emerge?
Give your opinion in our pre-expansion poll for STANDARD LADDER.
5: Meta defining (Dominant, either as a build around card, or a staple across various decks) Examples: Duskbreaker, Call to Arms.
4: Very strong (Strong card that will definitely see play). Examples: Elven Minstrel, Branching Paths.
3: Decent (Has potential to see play, solid). Examples: Potion of Heroism, Murmuring Elemental.
2: Weak (Situational, niche, doubtful playability). Example: Hooked Reaver, Lesser Ruby Spellstone.
1: Terrible (Unplayable, will not see the light of day): Example: Green Jelly, Sewer Crawler.
You don’t have to rate all the cards as all the questions are randomized, but feel free to do so anyway.
While we do these polls mostly for fun, it gives us the opportunity to look at how the community evaluates cards and identify factors that cause them to be overrated or underrated. As long as interest continues, we will do them for each upcoming expansion. Over time, this will give us a good frame of reference and allow for an intriguing look into the past and how cards were evaluated at the time of their release.
