Information

This deck, for whatever reason, has been insanely good with an 85% winrate from Gold to Masters. You can see it in action during my stream in the VOD.

Is it the recruit off of Druid of the Sands and Patrice, Your New Home? Is it Auralian Supplier drawing you cards? Is it Tocas, Waystone Harvester shutting down Kira Ascending decks? Is it Ramba, Arena Showman making cards cheaper when it hits or playing cards when you've got nothing else happening? Is it Kanya, Ironthorn Envoy ramping you if your opponent is off to a slow start? Or is it Kairos, Grand Champion doing his thing?

No idea. It's all of those things, I think. Anyway, it's insane.
************
Updated 1/19/2024: No changes other than a change in the power base to include Mark of the Hive.
************
Update 2/3/2024: The deck is unchanged. I went 51 - 8 from Gold 3 to Masters. An opponent I faced 2 or 3 times was playing Svetya, Lightbringer which really shut down my gameplan. It was good tech against the deck. I lost to them each time. Admittedly, the climb has been much easier than in the past due to suboptimal opposing decks, 125+ card piles, and unequal pairing of opponents.
************
Update 3/7/2024: While I haven't yet reached Masters with the deck in March, life has gotten in the way and I've been playing Expedition, the deck still performs well. Perhaps not at the 85% now, but that's to be expected with new variations on the deck popping up and people teching against it. I've made two changes to the Market. Gone are Display of Realities and Grodov's Burden to be replaced with Glimpse Another Age and Passage of Eons. I've faced quite a few Xenan reanimator or other lists with void synergies. Emptying the opponent's void can kind of shut that down. It also helps to some extent against mill lists. It's not a perfect solution. Passage of Eons has been pretty good at dealing with all relics, not just those on an opponent. I'm thinking specifically of Tormented Crown, Rift Siphon, or Dichro's Ruin lists. Silencing opposing units and killing Permafrost are also up sides to this over Display. At 6-cost, it is expensive, but you're usually ramping out anyway, and getting to six isn't usually that difficult.

Been enjoying this deck for a couple weeks now since finding it. That said, I know people like their Kairos, and I do too, but he’s definitely win-more in this deck.

I swapped him for Ixtol, Champion of Grodov, and it’s so much better imo. Synergy with Patrice, Wasp, and the overall goal of ramping.

I also swapped Passage for Rapid Development. With big Ixtol or Wasp, it’s the pseudo-Craterhoof I need to finish a game instantly.

If you're not winning more, you're not doing right.

Hello sir when you wright "I'm thinking specifically of Tormented Crown, Rift Siphon, or Dichro's Ruin lists" do you have any good lists with this card to consulting? thanks in advance
AGhostlyToaster Eternal Version: 24.01.17
Marvin doing Praxis with maindeck Kairos...this brings back memories
BorisBritva Edited Eternal Version: 23.12.06
I began to lose to everyone, the game does not give power cards, or gives 14 power cards in a row! I start the game with 4-5 worthwhile creatures. 5 moves, nothing can be done. Apparently the developers have fixed this deck. You created a wonderful deck, the developer couldn't miss it. xD

Me too, got to top 60 master, and now top 300 due to the same mulligan problem
BorisBritva Edited Eternal Version: 24.01.17
There were 2 power cards in 8 games in a row until the 4th turn of the game(In this deck of cards). Don't write to DW, they don't like it - I've heard a lot about this problem. You will be banned from the game! Please note that decks of cards are perfectly reproduced only on streams. Also note that the game has mandatory cards; They will always be at your fingertips during the game!

I am winning with this deck and I suck at this game. Kairos is big fun and you get to play him a lot. I might try to put HOTV in here. He was always one of my favorite cards before the nerf. He's back now and I like to sneak him into decks when I can. Anyway, nice job. :)

Whats HOTV?

Sorry, Heart of the Vault.

Hey
thanks for sharing
I don't have Kanya, what do you suggest to replace?
marvin_the_imp Eternal Version: 23.12.06
I think Javan, the Steel Crest could work as an alternative. Javan is a bit more like a second Ramba, Arena Showman. You could also try Alhed Ascending, Amaran Stinger, Field Medic, and Snoozing Sloth are other alternatives that might work in this deck.

Thank you for sharing this. I have reached master with this deck today. The record is 18:2 in the latest 20 games. I have slightly modified the market, replacing Gnash with Passage of Eons, in order to deal with curse relics like Tormented Crown, Dichro's Ruin, and Rift Siphon.
marvin_the_imp Eternal Version: 23.12.06
I would probably choose to replace Display of Realities or Grodov's Burden rather than Gnash, Desert Prince if I had to choose. Both of those play similar roles. Gnash plays a specific role against fliers. Silencing fliers is good and all, but I'd rather just bottom them, even if it includes my own Riftfeeder Wasp. Gnash and Burden together is the dream killer combo. But it's all personal preference! I'm glad it worked!
a414474905 Eternal Version: 23.12.06
I love this deck ,really
Bring back the Kairos, Grand Champion
BorisBritva Eternal Version: 23.12.06
The most incredible thing about this deck is that you will put all the creatures on the table and win. The developers don't see anything wrong with this.
agro> Nothing Remains, Harsh Rule, Rift Disaster. With 12 cards you will still fail at 85%.
The deck is good!
