Hey there, it's your residental brewer Kira again, and today I'm sharing a deck based around Minotaurs! The new set gave a lot of new tools for the tribal, including some heavy caliber (unfortunately legendary) cards, namely Gift of the Auric Bank
and Black Book, Pit Boss
! Both support the deck in very different ways and in combination with Tavrod, Auric Broker
we have a well rounded set of cards to deal with any given situation. Hence the name Triforce or Argenport! :P "Kira, i think people figured that out already...", "Well, i just wanted to make sure that everyone underst-" "You're talking too much as always, just shut up and get to the deck profile!" :''( *Crying in corner* Gameplan
: The most important thing about this deck is to hit 5 power
! That's when the deck really starts to play, all your legendary 5 drops will provide a lot of value over time
and except of Tavrod, Auric Broker
, all off them do something the turn they're played, Black Book, Pit Boss
takes out a card in their hand while being an annoying wall, and Gift of the Auric Bank
is one of the best Xenan Obelisk
-type of cards they have ever printed, it's even stronger than Sunset Stone
for elves, which i thought was hard to imagine.
Since gift also buffs relic weapons we run a package of Hidden Garotte, Nullblade
and Stormhalt Plating
with Battlemaster Kitaxius
to buff all of them, important thing to know, with Garotte he gives all of your relic weapons unblockable, and Stormhalt Plating
with unblockable is not particularily fun for the opponent. Atleast 14 face damage with not much room to interact is wild and an excellent finisher! Exploit
and Lost Scroll
to hit/ramp to 5 and disrupt plays, Just Desserts
and Display of Will
as removal spells, Display also allows AP to deal with relics and sites now, which i think is kinda nuts considering it was one of the big weaknesses of the faction. Nothing Remains
to sweep the board, again we really start playing at 5, so wiping the board on 4 is absolutely fine, even if you have to kill your own units. Auric Interrogator
also really appreciates the buffs you get across the board from Black Book, Tavrod and Gift.
Market: Argenport Tome
and Regent's Tomb
to always hit your power and potentially sit on a site for some more over time value. Belltower Shot
is a really fun market removal spell, either you kill the unit that puts pressure on you, or you take out something from their hand, very versatile and most certainly not the worst grab most of the time. Saloon Massacre
as fast aoe spell and last but not least the gem of this market in any way imagineable, Last Stand at the Gate
! I was so excited to finally find a home for this card and it's so fun with some Gift of the Auric Bank
on board. With one gift we're talking about 3 4/4's with endurance and a 8/7 relic weapon! It's hilarious and surprisingly strong for stabilizing!
And that's it, I'll respond to questions regarding card choices and (budget) replacements asap as always. I might also make an expedition version of this deck if people want to see that. Have fun and show them 'stinky smoothskins' who's the boss in Argenport! It's us, we're the boss, not them. 100% us.... right? right? right!
Enjoy eternal, your Kira. Get out of here :P
