Cube Stats: Power 9

So, I now have 3 months of data of win/loss ration for cards in the cube, and I thought it would be interesting to look at the win/loss ratio for the power nine (plus Sol Ring).


In theory, these cards are so powerful, they should make you win.  But do they?

*Keep in mind, just because they were in the main deck doesn’t mean they were ever drawn/played.

NameGame Win %Match Win %
Mox Jet11%0%
Mox Pearl50%33%
Mox Emerald50%40%
Mox Ruby50%50%
Mox Sapphire52%50%
Ancestral Recall62%75%
Time Walk50%57%
Black Lotus48%43%
Sol Ring59%67%

A couple things of note:

  • Black Lotus, in the last three months went 3-0, 0-3, 0-1-1.   Since I’m not counting draws, that means Lotus hasn’t won a game in the last 2 months.
  • Poor Mox Jet.  One win in 9 games played. (It was in the unpicked packs in November.)
  • Sol Ring is the strongest of the mana rocks, providing consistency and explosiveness.
  • Ancestral Recall, once again showing that card advantage is king.
