People used to play this archetype a lot pre-Krull, Xumuc Occultist
nerf. And while that version was far more resilient against removal, the pure skycrag version wasn't that much worse when played aggressively. However, now that Crafty Occultist
is a thing, this version has much more potential to catch back up after running out of steam.
is one of the coolest cards released this set and this is a highly synergistic aggro deck centered around it and The Throne Room
. Dump your hand with Autotread to ping face and get out 7/7 fatties and additional face burn via Throne Room. Also, Invasive Species
can be pulled from the market once your hand is gone and Kindling Carver
can sac them for additional Autotread gas (which can let you pull Invasive species from the market again, etc...).
Example Highroll Sequence:
T1/2 - Autotread
T3 - The Throne Room
-> A-space hit face
T4 - Undepleted power -> Dump hand to fuel Autotread -> Get Daraka, Queensguard
to take out a blocker -> Hit face with a unit -> Get Eilyn, the Rising Storm
with aegis and it's basically GG
