We're just about over our first week of Madness at the Darkmoon Faire and what a jolly time it has been! Today we're going to be looking at the most popular Legendary cards that are being used right now and a few decks that make use of them.
We aren't giving you specific crafting advice yet though, the meta still has not fully solidified so if you're still waiting to get the most bang for your buck as far as your dust goes, hang in there with us!
The popularity of these cards is based on data from HSReplay. All data will be provided at the end of the post.
The Most Popular Darkmoon Faire Legendaries
If you are looking to get your Old Gods on, Guardian Druid is a popular archetype right now that features both Yogg-Saron and Y'Shaarj.
On the C'Thun side of things, Control Warrior received a nice boost thanks to this Old God's spectacular ability to annoy your opponent.
That just sounds like damage with extra steps! Il'gynoth, unsurprisingly, is found in Demon Hunter decks. Soul Demon Hunter loves this little growth of N'Zoth and the deck is doing very well on the winrate side of things, only really having a problem with some Druid decks (notably Big and Clown).
The Highest Winrate Darkmoon Faire Legendaries
The most popular doesn't always mean the best so its important that we look at another side of the puzzle - which legendaries command the highest deck winrates?
We've been asked about Evolve Shaman and so it is appropriate we get a chance to showcase it now with the high deck winrate of Inara Stormcrash.
As far as Yrel goes, it should be no surprise that we're going to be using a Pure Paladin deck.
What's that? Totem Shaman? Sure thing!
The Most Kept Darkmoon Faire Legendaries
Certain legendary cards are powerful enough that you want to keep them at the start of the game and its not always the low-cost ones.
Not Interesting Enough
Where there's a top, there also must be a bottom. At the bottom end of the legendary cards for Darkmoon Faire, we've got cards that are used in less than 1% of decks.
