Expedition Deck By

At least in the relatively small 14 game sequence that launched me into Master rank this season.

If anyone is interested, will write a detailed guide to mulligan and gameplay strategy and tactics.

Hey, I'd love to see a mulligan and strategy guide if you're still interested in writing one. I'm tired of playing budget aggro decks, and this is at least reasonably craftable for someone like me. If not, no worries, as I'll still be trying out the deck either way.
nadeboggs Eternal Version: 24.03.14
After a couple runs through gauntlet I gotta say: kind of a lot of anti-synergies in here! I replaced the Hive Falls with Eiylns, which solves the biggest problem, but Youngblood Tactician still threatens to kill all of your units (and itself when you get a Rift's Edge online)

But yeah also pretty fun and nice
Nauminous Edited Eternal Version: 24.03.14
Yes Youngblood Tactician has a lot of anti-synergy with the other units (including itself if a Nomnom is on the board) but it not a unit you just always play. It works in conjunction with Snowball and damage spells. It's a remedy to Skycrag weakness to large enemy units. But it can also serve as bait to draw out removal that could also be used on Nomnom or just as a blocker. Opponents are likely to view its presence as "must kill".

Hive Falls was originally Clash of Wills but its inclusion made deck competitive vs. FTJ relic decks that made it hard to burn down opponent which relics often included healing effects. Deck was built for current Expedition format -- for Gauntlet I would make some other card choices, especially with the larger card pool.
