- The shiftstone cost for this deck is completely inaccurate! Both legendaries you get for FREE from The Empty Throne
expansion. The real cost for this deck without legendaries
is only 6650
Shiftstone. NOTE #2
- You may replace the legendaries with other cards as they didn't cause me to win very many matches (about 5 out of 35 matches). Ultra cheap alternatives are: Deadeye
, Hellfire Rifle
or even Crowd Favorite
__________________________________________________________ --- With this deck there are FOUR main win conditions --- #1
This is mostly an aggro deck. I say aggro because your main win condition is Order of the Spire
and dumping one or more Finest Hour
cards on him before empowering to give him those bonuses permanently. Dropping a cheap Elder's Feather
on him is usually enough to allow you to hit the enemy's face for huge damage. #2
With consistent face damage with Ticking Grenadin
, Kaleb's Favor
and additional shots from Breath of Vorpex you can put very early pressure on opponents allowing you a mid-game advantage. Most people I went up against opted to take the 5 damage to face, even if it meant saving a lone 1/1 minion with only exalted as a skill. # 3
Warcry gives us our third win condition. Building value on cheaper minions that already have endurance a la' Auric Sentry
or even Order of the Spire
or a big Crownwatch Paladin
with Aegis. # 4
Our final win condition comes from the two legendaries which aren't necessary. If you don't have them, I recommend swapping for removal such as Fall Short
or even Edict of Kodosh
. Or, if you wish, some weapons to help give your Valkyire Cadet more value. Cheap, good
weapons would be e.g. Ruination Sledge
and Grandfather's Axe
or Crownwatch Longsword
or even Gilded Glaive
(for more value with Order of the Spire
Seek Power was a late game (Gold II) change that I made when I found that I wasn't getting a proper setup ready for Order of the Spire
and I found that I needed at least one big OotS to force opponents to dump spells, panic play or even rage concede.
This deck definitely isn't a Master Tier deck for Expedition, and as if it would be. Master Expedition decks require decks that have insane synergies and where every single card gives high amounts of value. This was the cheapest, consistently good Expedition deck that I could make and that I actually felt bothered to test.
Final note is that I found Valkyrie Cadet
to be the least reliable card. She is a 3 cost card with only 1-1 that doesn't get decent value until turn 5 minimum. By this point unless she has additional value from Warcry procs, she's usually easily killed or silenced. As I said, you could swap her for removal/weapons for your other units, or just a better 3 cost unit.
