Moon Madness v2.0 (+video)

Mooning our opponents in all the right ways since 2021®

This is a new iteration of my original Moon Madness deck but now packed with 20% more madness! After posting my initial list, a couple members from our fantastic community pointed out some other fun interactions that could be had with the deck. Those all-star players being Kalikulator who brought Autotread to the forefront and Pal who brought up Jekk, Mercenary Hunter.

The original list included Hellfire Valkyrie who was a fun inclusion but didn't provide immediate impact with her arrival onto the board. The two new inclusions do bring the heat right off the bat though. I've updated the power base for a more fire influence friendly build and added Last Chance to the market since we're a little more unit heavy now. Check it out and have fun with this fun little gauntlet grinder!

Here's video of what the deck can do. The Wump's Party run was a pretty decent showcase for how wild the deck gets. I may or may not have completely skipped my turn at somepoint in this video..... this is an expert level strat that I don't have time to explain :P :P

I built the deck. First time lost round 2. Mulliganed a 1 power hand into a 2 power hand and didn't get my 3rd power until turn 6. Tried again. Lost round 2 when the AI killed my Waxing Moon and I died to 2/2 fliers.
Sure it was bad luck but a 50/50 rate over 4 games suggests the deck lacks consistency.

Sure! Version 1 of this deck has been slightly more consistent for me in my data but it is surprising how bad your rate has been so far. I've still had a pretty decent time with this version overall. It may be a luck thing! :) I know that everyone has certain types of decks that seem to cater to their play style, and the lines of play in this one fit my comfort zone so that may help as well. Sorry to hear that you didn't have much luck with it though!

Tried a 3rd time. Lost game 1 to a pair of 8/8 endurance units and didn't draw moon. Have you considered moving a moon to the market? It wouldn't have helped me that game because I didn't draw Vine Grafter but the Moon is so key to the deck you should increase your odds of drawing it. I think there is some cheap tutor that has the drawback of not being able to play the tutored card until turn 5 or so. If the colors fit it might be good in this deck.

Tried a 4th time. Lost on round 3. Sorry, The deck is fun when it combos off but what I want from a gauntlet grinder is constancy and this doesn't have it.

Real showcase of AI brainpower in that Ancient Power matchup lmao.

That's a great looking deck!
xceler8 Eternal Version: 21.06.09
lol Right?! Those Harsh Rules were played perfectly by the AI. I get screwed enough going through Gauntlet, I'll accept these gifts when their presented :P

Thanks! It's certainly been a fun deck to play so far!

I think i faced this deck in ladder yesterday and lost against it. Difficult to beat. Decided to make my own and came up with pretty much the same list. Autotread can dominate the game on its own. Try adding Send a Message in the market for more shenanigans.
xceler8 Eternal Version: 21.06.09
It runs the show when it gets going :) Send a Message sounds like great fun! That card has never really been on my radar but it seems pretty killer in this kind of setup!
