D&D 5e Race/Class

What are some race/class combos that you rarely or never see? Specifically I'm talking about the core races and classes from the PHB. I feel like I'm always reaching for the same ole things but I want to stretch myself a little.

There has actually been a full analysis of this question (based on D&D Beyond)! Unless I am mistaken, it looks like half orc sorcerer is the least common.

I'm surprised. I thought that Elf Barbarian or Dwarf Druid would be contenders. Thanks for that link though.

Honestly, it's hard to pull up a genuinely loser combination in 5th edition, so anything is fair game mechanically.

Half-Orc sorcerers are perfectly viable and aren't going to be trying to scale a near insurmountable barrier to entry; they won't be perfectly optimized, but that's about it.

I'm always surprised at how many human PCs there are that are created, most of the groups I have played with seem to actively avoid playing as a human in order to get that "outside of normal" feel to the PC. But stats, even if not perfect, tend to tell a pretty reasonable tale of truth. So that chart is SUPER interesting compared to my personal experience, thanks for sharing!
