January and February MTGO P9 Challenge Data

Since Brass Man made it sound like unbreaking the old site will take a while and Kevin asked, here is basic data from the January and Februrary P9 challenges. Matt is working on doing an archetype vs. archetype breakdown. In the meantime I thought I'd post what we have readily available. I think the only reclassifying we did was to move gush storm from gush to combo, but I believe that was only played by one person so the effect should not matter much.

Thanks @diophan ! Podcasting tonight and this data is invaluable.

Shops had a 49.6% win rate? Thank God we got that taken care of.

Vintage, so coin flippy 🙂

@The-Atog-Lord That was in January. The only relevant data is February, the month in which modo programmers begin writing their quadruple nested for loops to ensure that the restricted list will be implemented correctly.

As though they understand loops...

Here is the matchup breakdown for January (Thank you for the help, Ryan. These things are a pain).

When drawing conclusions from this, be sure to look at the sample size: (# of matches = # of wins for deck X against Y + # of wins for deck Y against X) (Match win % = # of wins for deck x / # of matches).

Well it seems like if combo-summer comes, i'll just start playing "other" 🙂

Here is the matchup vs matchup data for February. Same caveats apply.
