Here’s a quick breakdown of the types of decks that competed in the Wild Cup Unified Team Constructed tournament, sponsored by the Dragonborn guild.
The data needs to be considered within the unique format of the Wild Cup, that being Unified Team Constructed where teams of 3 players build and bring 3 different decks with no more than 4 copies of a non-shard card between them. Thirty-one teams took part in the Wild Cup, and some clear trends have emerged.
Mono-Sapphire decks made it in to ~71% of the teams selection, with an additional ~26% of the teams fielding a Ruby-Sapphire deck. 3 teams in the Top 4 were running similar Mono-Sapphire decks. The next closest was Mono-Blood with ~42% in teams.

Buccaneer and Cerulean Mirror Knight key cards in the decks share first place spot as the most played card of the tournament. However, the card tally gently descends due to the Unified Team Constructed format making it difficult to draw clear conclusions. It does show the key cards in Sapphire, Blood, and Diamond decks with no real surprises in the top 20.
|Top 20 Cards:||Deck Count:|
|2||Cerulean Mirror Knight||25|
|7||Mastery of Time||23|
|8||Reese the Crustcrawler||22|
|11||Angel of Dawn||20|
|17||Verdict of the Ancient Kings||18|
|Top 5 Champions:||Deck Count:|
|4||Wyatt the Sapper||10|
Mono-Sapphire with Bertram Cragraven looks like the deck to beat in the meta as the top 64 players in the Shard Series will be competing next month in the Shard Cup on May 9th.
