It's a terrible card. It's awful. It's embarrassing. People laugh at you when you play it. Shush
, I say.
This deck had a couple of iterations over the past few days, but ultimately, the deck shushed the competition and convincingly got me into Masters. The win rate was about 67%.
Three copies of Shush
(I almost wanted the full four) permanently silenced discard enablers, random crazy legendary fatties into vanilla units, pesky Grand Suppressor
, and fliers. Don't play it, they say. I call BS.
The Card Choices
-4x Sword of Unity
moved to the market. I decided one Sword was enough to get me out of a sticky situation.
+4x Saber-Tooth Prideleader
were added after facing a bunch of aggro and relics this weekend. I also felt I needed the additional units.
-3x Combrei Blueprints
in favor of +4Justice Etchings
in addition to the 4x Winchest Merchant
to add to the market access. I felt in my games I was wanting to get to the market and just wouldn't draw a merchant.
-4x Builder's Decree
. I had a full set in here, but I decided Etchings were too important. Maybe debatable.
4x Desert Marshal
and 4x Valkyrie Enforcer
for early game silence. Desert Marshall's ambush also very helpful.
4x Tocas, Waystone Harvester
shut down Hooru Kira Ascending
decks and was a fat body against aggro.
-4x Ky, Awakened Master
in favor of 4x Sediti, the Killing Steel
. I wanted to try Ky, and I really wanted him to be good. Ultimately, it just wasn't in this deck. I didn't have enough units, and as a ground unit, it just sat there most of the time. Sediti can be a mixed bag sometimes. And against Hooru, it's sometimes hit or miss if they have Aegis. And of course, your opponents always
has multiple copies of their own when you can't draw a single one. That said, warping without the onslaught is never a bad thing.
4x Lord Steyer's Tower
is just gas of a card. People hate dealing with it, and the value is just amazing.
3x Enter the Monastery
and 4x Icaria, Valkyrie Captain
helped with ramp.
4x Vanquisher's Blade
locked out the void. I considered Adjudicator's Gavel
, but the times I lost to discard or reanimator, one Gavel wouldn't have mattered, I think.
4x Diana, Faith's Shield
is Diana. Not much to say there.
The Market Svetya, Merciful Orene
out of the market can close out games ultimately. I had Svetya, Lightbringer
in the market, but I dropped it in favor of Massive Greatsword
. Pristine Light
and Shen-Ra Speaks
for board wipes, but really, I almost never chose Speaks.
It's not like this is innovative. It uses just one new card, Justice Sketch
. That is
a good one though. Doubling a unit's stats can push you over the finish line sometimes. And like I said, I tried using Ky, it just didn't work. So... boring Combrei fliers. Shush
, don't tell anyone.
I went 17-11 with this deck in the Revelations Throne Open.
