Who's the Best Guild?

Posted in Arcana on November 14, 2012

Right now, the Izzet have the most Planeswalker Points. So that means they're the best, right?


Well, kind of. But let's look at the numbers in a little more detail. (Warning: These numbers will be slightly different from the screenshot because they're from earlier in the day. As any Izzet mage could tell you, reality is always changing around you.)

GuildPoints
Izzet1,196,440
Azorius1,062,519
Dimir716,918
Simic687,281
Golgari573,337
Selesnya426,569
Boros409,609
Orzhov379,854
Rakdos367,086
Gruul205,447

Well, not necessarily. Because the Izzet also have the most people:

GuildMembers
Izzet10,234
Azorius8,564
Golgari6,687
Dimir6,489
Selesnya5,637
Simic5,195
Rakdos4,511
Boros4,324
Orzhov3,573
Gruul1,726

How about points per person?

GuildPoints per Member
Simic132.30
Azorius124.07
Gruul119.03
Izzet116.91
Dimir110.48
Orzhov106.31
Boros94.73
Golgari85.74
Rakdos81.38
Selesnya75.67

Now the Simic are winning! And Gruul, who were dead last, are now ahead of Izzet!

But what if we looked at the people who won the last few big tournaments?

Pro Tour Return to Ravnica: Stanislav Cifka (Izzet)
Grand Prix Philadelphia: Shuhei Nakamura (Orzhov)
Grand Prix Auckland: Walker MacMurdo (Orzhov)
Grand Prix Lyon: Jérémy Dezani (Orzhov)
Grand Prix Chicago: Jacob Wilson (Simic)

Sure, there's an Izzet and a Simic in there. But three Grand Prix champions in a row were Orzhov!

If you're tired of Izzet's lead, remember that you have the power to change things. Have you picked a guild on Planeswalker Points yet? Don't you think it's time you did?
