Lauri Achte has collated the minimal metagame data that WOTC gave out about the Legacy Grand Prix’s which happened recently. The attendance at these events was great as usual and so it still remains a mystery as to why there is no European Legacy GP this year.

I hope this is of interest to you and provides a good point to see how the meta has changed since the introduction of Aether Revolt.

I haven’t crunched through every decklist containing Omniscience, so when looking at %’s of Sneak and Show and Omni-tell, please absorb the data with a grain of salt as Wizards’ website has some Omnitell lists listed under “Sneak and Show” and some Sneak and Show lists with Omniscience as “Omnitell”. The results, however, do point out that lists with Sneak Attack did perform considerably better than the Mono Blue counterpart.

GP Louisville – 8/01/2017 – 1600+ Players

The data and coverage for this event was less than stellar with WOTC giving some lame excuses about covering an in house tournament and some subsequent back and forth over whose actual responsibility it is to stream events. Hopefully CFB will do a great job in Vegas later in the year.

The Top 32 data is missing one-off decks to avoid having 100% penetration to Top 32. These decks include 2 types of different Delver variants and the everso popular Noble Duke BUG list. Also because of the inconsistencies in the data, for Louisville I’ve bundled Sneak and Show and Omnitell lists all together under Sneak and Show, Because the traditional Sneak Attack lists were much more common in the Louisville metagame.
