Did everyone just forget that this deck exists?
Yes, Vicious Highwayman
was nerfed, but this deck was tier 1 before that card even existed. This list is more in line with the original Scream Queen lists from many moons ago, playing a few more grenadin to fill the board for big Bandit Queen
swings. It is still insanely powerful, has game across the board (while being fairly weak to aggro), has nut draws, and rewards tight play.
I don't know exactly what my w/l record is, but I took this deck from G3 to Masters, with a 7 win streak from D1 0/100 to Masters, and when I hit masters, I was in 28th place. So pretty strong showing.
I think the deck is particularly well situated right now because the flavor of the week deck switched from Yetis to Paladins, and Scream Queen just destroys that matchup. I played against 2 people in top 100 who were on even Paladins and I mercilessly crushed them both.
I really hope this deck picks back up in popularity, it leads to really intricate matches. Be warned though, if you have not played this deck before, it can take some time to get good with it. Every decision matters, every scout is critical.
Just a quick note on the market: don't play Rindra's Choice
. I literally never grabbed it. I would recommend annihilate, and I could see playing devour or Rindra if you want a little lifegain in your 75.
