FiveShards Fate Cup, Top 8, full decklists, and meta breakdown

The Cup of Fate, Season 3 is now in the books. Normally, we post the decklists in full on the website, but thanks to some scrounging and correcting people’s spelling, Veetor has exported the data to hexmeta. Our top 8 from yesterday, that is, the decks that are sure to define the meta to come, are:

  1. Enyma’s Uzzucannon
  2. Reeplay’s BW Kagulichu
  3. Xantosch’s DW Fuzzuko
  4. Biz’s BW 150-card Jankbot
  5. Mars’ Mono-wild Fuzzuko
  6. iamhero’s SW Uzzu
  7. Piecetinker’s BS Azure-spider
  8. Wyant’s Mono-D

Note: Mars and iamhero are tied for 5th and Piecetinker and Wyant are tied for 7th.

You can find the full list here. Of note, due to the format of double elimination, some players have more wins than others, but a lower ranking. In double elimination, if you lose an early match, you are required to win more subsequent matches to go further in the tournament. You can view the final standings and the larger bracket on battlefy here.

  1. Reeplay’s BW Kagulichu deck shows 4 Vampire King in the maindeck, and three in the Reserves. Something tells me that one of those are Vampire Princess instead.

  2. mars played mono wild not r/s
