Hi there, and welcome to the Prophecy Meta Snapshot! As a way of introduction: I am ice_nine, an Elder Scrolls: Legends player who has played many other TCGs and CCGs. This snapshot is my attempt to identify the Prophecies that see the most play in constructed in order to determine which Prophecies my opponents are most likely to get off of a broken rune. Next to every Prophecy I indicated the percentage of eligible decks in which the Prophecy is played (via legends-decks.com
). I also included the meta decks in which it might see play, found by combing the deck lists provided by the latest Meta Snapshot from betweenthelanes.net
. Note that I designed this article to be more of a breakdown of the popularity of Prophecies and not their power-level, although the more powerful Prophecies do tend to see more play.
The Prophecies are broken up into five tiers:
Tier 1: Ubiquitous. Sees play in just about every deck that has access to it, regardless of archetype (<75% of decks sampled). Getting these cards off of a rune break can swing tempo, often in seemingly unfair ways.
Tier 2: Played in most decks containing its attribute (<40% of decks sampled).
Tier 3: Sees some play (15-40% of decks sampled).
Tier 4: Sees very little play (5-15% of decks sampled).
Tier 5: Sees almost no play. (>5% of decks sampled).
At the end of this article I have grouped the prophecies together by attribute to provide a quick reference guide.
