Information

A control deck built around Razca, Rewarded as a card-draw engine. While not the best version of this deck, control is always fun to build and try out.

The idea behind this deck is to set-up an Eclipse Dragon and always be able to make use of the power it provides. To that end, the deck plays instant removal like Cremate and Battle at the Gates while also being able to hold up its card draw like Display of Menace and Rainfall Accord.

Razca and Skywatch Zealot are the core pieces of the card advantage engine. They replace themselves while being fodder for Display, with Razca being able to be discarded to Rainfall Accord and recurred later. She can also come down early to trade against or hold off opposing units, giving you the time you need to take control of the game.

I don't think its that important to play a variety of dragons, as getting Razca back even once is fine. However, I did notice that the worst hands had 2-3 dragons, so I decided to keep the ratio of four Dragon Forge and six targets.

Tattoo Dragon can trigger off Razca the turn it enters, whereas Raging Firemaw can take over the late game. Karvet, Solar Dragon and Spitflame Draconus both help you stabilize the board, though it might be better to simply play two Karvet instead, as four different names is likely fine.

The deck is very fun, but as with all control decks you need to be careful with your threat management, so watch out. I don't necessarily recommend it as a "fun deck" to build, but if your control-starved its not the worst you can do.
