Update may 23 subbed back in torches instead of boiling geyser it was cute but torches are just better.


I am back again with another sling update this time with some spicy new tech from the newest set Revelations! I was concerned that sling in throne might become obsolete with this newest set. The power level of sling however remains untouched for the time being. The standard Thone Skycrag sling list I used to hit rank 1 remains relatively the same. With a couple really cool inclusions from Revelations. The first one I want to talk about has quickly become my favorite card of the set. Jufi, Sprite Seer not an all out scary card by itself especially when played on turn three but with the stealth mechanic, slings natural draw engine and the ability to put three Dragon’s Eye into the deck. It can very quickly ramp into an impressive threat. When she is played on turn five or later. I originally tried running four copies of her in the list but while it worked out it proved to be rather greedy. So I cut back to two copies to not interfere to much with other five drops. Our next inclusion is Boiling Geyser while it does not have the direct face damage that torch does. A one cost fast speed spell to deal with aggro units which I expect to see a lot of in this set proves to be invaluable. My final change I have made to the list was an include of two copies of Runic Transformation . An amazing tool for us to be able to dodge tricky combat tricks or even removal spells on key units. These changes have kept me at rank one throne with a solid 80% W/R. I am very well aware of how hated this deck is but I enjoy it so I’ll keep playing it. For those that also enjoy it please give it a try.

i love that you continue to smash with this deck!!! it annoys me that the deck/card is so divisive. it's simply one of the ways you can win. feels like how mtg players talk about tron. keep it up, friend, love these lists!
TimeZero Eternal Version: 21.05.18
It has been a while since I played, so I used your previous version from Diamond 3 to Master, but I can't believe you have 80% W/R when this deck is the definition of glass cannon. It is so reliant on Sling to try to execute his game plan, it's not even funny. Even with all the different techs, it's not enough. Either you get Sling or you just lose, plain and simple.
TCGcthulhu Eternal Version: 21.05.18
I’m sorry you feel that way, while the main win-con of the deck is sling. The deck does not fall without it. It just becomes a slightly slower midrange deck even without sling if the chi we have threats like rost, jufi, geminom. All who can win the game single handedly without sling. The deck also has many ways of protecting them as well. I hope you have better luck in the future! Don’t give up just because you run into some bad games we’ve all been there!
TimeZero Eternal Version: 21.05.18
I've played a ton of games from Diamond 3 to Master and I still continue to play at Master level. I'm not saying that with a small game sample. When you get Sling, the deck is almost unbeatable as long as you are able to keep Sling in play. When you don't draw Sling, you have vanilla 5 drops that do nothing when they come into play and it's almost a 100% lose rate in that case. Real midrange decks have impactful 4 to 6 drops while this deck has just big vanilla meatballs.
RoninX Eternal Version: 21.05.18
Playing it wrong? 7/10 and 7/7 difficult to kill are hardly standard 5 drops. Obviously this deck is extremely powerful with sling but it wins lots of games without it as well. I think this version is getting a little unfocused but there is a lot of hate and power here.
Grinch Eternal Version: 21.05.18
Exactly must be playing it wrong was just gonna say the same thing rost is so far from a vanilla creature lmao he is hard for other mid range decks to deal with. I always run into tcgCthulhu on the throne ladder playing sling as well and beat him many times even when I don’t have sling and he does just off rost alone sometimes ahha
TimeZero Eternal Version: 21.05.18
Playing it wrong? We're in Throne guys. There are never been more removal available than now. Between Turn to Seed, Harsh Rule, End of Story and now Fall to Ruin and countless other single target removal, saying I'm playing it wrong is just bad mouth. If that deck was in Expedition, it would be a different story. The hate against relics is omnipresent everywhere. You're free to use that deck in the upcoming Throne qualifier on June 11th, but if you do that, I have a feeling you'll be watching Day 2 instead of playing in it. People are ready for Sling for the past 3 weeks or so.

I am generally not good at this game, although I enjoy it immensely. For the first time in the over 3 years I have been playing, I reached Masters in Throne thanks to your sling decks. Thank you for sharing. I am going to keep playing it to get stronger, but this is great.
TCGcthulhu Eternal Version: 21.05.18
I am very glad you are enjoying the deck! I am even more glad that you made it to masters with the deck! Sling is king around here, we all start somewhere and through time we all improve. I am by no means the best player I excel in some areas and lack in others. Sling and skycrag decks are one of the areas I excel in. Keep practicing and you’ll keep getting better!

Time to nerf sling lol
TCGcthulhu Eternal Version: 21.05.18
No sir sling is king around these parts
biologynut99 Eternal Version: 21.05.18
No u!
YurickYu Eternal Version: 21.05.18
If you intrigue Jufi, Sprite Seer the 4 Dragon's Eye will still keep the influence requirement of TP right?
TCGcthulhu Eternal Version: 21.05.18
They lose their influence requirements! You don’t have to run time!
Alover Edited Eternal Version: 21.05.18
Grateful for your ongoing maintenance of this deck, thank you. I had been bronze forever but slowly crafted this deck (bye bye Guardian of Spring) and seeing how far I can go and give my bronze brethren hope ...

DAY 1: Won (many?!) games in a row, novel experience: silver 3.
DAY 2: Love when Tamarys, Earthshaker takes out #$&@ aggro ... silver 2.
DAY 3: So fun to block a sling shot with Transpose ... outta my house. Silver 1.
DAY 4: Some power flood, I am learning to dump power earlier as it's an efficient deck too. Gold 3.
DAY 5: Learned Grand Suppressor comes after Crafty Occultist, but still made Gold 2.
DAY 6: Stuck at gold 2 after a bad run, and making mistakes helps learn this deck's subtleties.
DAY 7: Learning patience and the other faction schemes. Gold 1.
DAY 8: Seemingly can't lose, getting 3/4ish like TCG said. Diamond 3 feels good as a perennial bronzer.
DAY 9-11: Barely holding diamond 3 only because you can't be demoted, wondering if I should redraw to -1 always to look for sling?
TCGcthulhu Eternal Version: 21.05.18
Yes I’ve seen you liked it! The wonderful thing about sling is there isn’t really many decks that hard counter it and most match ups we win unless we draw poorly. Feel free to keep in touch and let me know how it’s going for you!
Alover Edited Eternal Version: 21.05.18
Had a bad run, but have reached gold one! That's great for me. I also have all the cards in the deck too. I do need some pointers go further I think Have you any redraw finer points? Tips for long control battles I seem to lose by attrition? Also aegis & spell negation, when to use/save?

I don't think I'm playing that bad although I made mistakes here and there. Losing to discard, spell/control, aggro ... I try to time and save cards for an appropriate time ... help?!
