The Elder Scrolls Legends Meta Report #1 (2) (October)

Tier 1

Ramp Dragon Scout is still an insane deck because of its power in late game and answers for all game styles: it does not have cards with Prophecy but has cards with Guard, Heal. You can play this cards several times during the game because of Soul Tear that gives it great potential against control decks like Control Mage. Aggressive decks with Charges like Aggro Crusader or Aggro Warrior can have have good winrate against this deck.

Rage Archer is very strong and popular deck now. It has answers for aggressive and control styles of game. Cards with keyword Lethal can beat strong enemy creatures. You can heal yourself by combination Unstoppable Rage + Snake tooth Necklace. Also you can destroy your opponent by Breakthrough keyword after playing Unstoppable Rage on Vigilant Giant. In some decks players cut Shearpoint Dragon and use Child of Hircine as an alternative win condition. This deck beats Token Crusader, bad against Ramp Scout.

Aggro Crusader is strong aggressive deck. It can beat you as fast as it can. Mighty Ally has 100% chance to get bonuses because of Mono Strength cards and cards with Dual Attributes ( Crusader cards Ulfric's Housecarl and Crusader's Assault will give great draw potential) in this deck. There are a lot of creatures with keyword Charge in it so if you have less than 10 health some topdecks will destroy you. Control Mage has good winrate against this deck.

 

Tier 2

Token Crusader is now not so strong but still has good winrate in current meta. It has good tempo game and excellent card draw potential that gives chance to create a strong board several times. To beat this deck you should have AOE`s, cards with Prophecy or cards that deal damage and destroy opponent’s tokens one by one.  Control decks like Control Mage and tempo decks with Strength Attribute like Midrange Archer  have good winrate against this deck.

Aggro Warrior is strong aggressive deck too. It has the same Strength cards like in Aggro Crusader but without draw potential from Dual Attributes cards. But there is strong card Sower of Revenge in this deck that can deal 5 damage for your opponent after death. This deck can be band against control decks.

Control Mage has been a good deck during all time. It has a lot of AOE effects, point removals, defence Prophecy. You can destroy opponent’s tempo game and then beat him in late game. It is bad against Ramp Scout  or another late game decks with Hist Grove. Sometimes players use Vicious Dreugh to destroy opponent supports.

 

Tier 3

Midrange Archer can have a good win rate against a lot of decks because of answers to opponent’s tempo play and own powerful tempo cards. There are a lot of 2-drops in this deck that can help to create a good tempo. Goblin Sculk helps a lot against aggro because of drawing Curse, Mournhold Traitor helps against other decks because of insane tempo stats. Rage Archer is better because of comeback chance after playing combo Unstoppable Rage + Snake tooth Necklace.

Midrange Sorcerer is a good universal deck too like Midrange Archer. But it is better against Control Mage because Wrath of Sithis can block AOE, but not so good against token decks especially Token Crusader.

Token Mage is a popular token deck. It is not so good like Token Crusader because it does not have so good draw potential. But it can be very aggressive and tempo and beat even tier 1 decks. You can get extra Lightning Bolt after playing Ayrenn.

 

Tier 4

Midrange Prophecy Mage was very popular deck. Now it can come back in ladder and can have good winrate. There are 26 cards with keyword Prophecy in this deck. Sometimes even if you do not control the board you will be able to come back after getting prophecies from runes.

Altair Control Monk can be pretty good against all aggressive and token decks. You can upgrade Drain Vitality to 3 level and deal -2/-2 to all tokens. Altar of Despair will help you to upgrade your shouts by summoning World Wall too. It can also be good against Control Mage. Bad against Scout, Spellsword or another decks with cards that can destroy supports like Belligerent Giant or Vicious Dreugh.

Item Sorcerer can also have good winrate. It has good midrange cards like in Midrange Sorcerer but also has Item synergy. Master of Swordsmith and Arcane Enchanter will give your items buff. After playing Master of Arms you will play 2 items from your discard pile.
