How is this supposed to work? I get some of the mechanics, but I don't see the big picture I guess. What is the end game? Should I stop playing power at some point so I don't die to Krull?
LightsOutAce Edited Eternal Version: 21.01.08
Generally you play out 4-5 power and discard the rest to Whispering Wind or Merchants. You win by outvaluing and overwhelming on board with Krull (playing 8 power of cards on turn 3 tends to put you very far ahead) and/or by going off with Throne Room. Sometimes Jekk just does Jekk things and buries the opponent, sometimes your opponent is playing aggro and Autotread buries them. Lots of different game plans based on matchup and what you and your opponent draw.

Here's a video of me playing it on stream:

Oh cool, thank you, I will check it out.

Climbed to Master with a 16-4 record (probably better but dont have more History in profile) with a slightly adjusted list.

Deck seems very powerful and Krull is unfair for sure.

Wind into Jekk discard is disgusting T3 play...

Oh and the deck is very fun to play with lots of decision making so really hats off to you guys

Have you tried playing with less than 4 Krull? Maybe a Second Sight to help the combo?
LightsOutAce Eternal Version: 20.12.23
Having all of the Krulls is necessary so that Whispering Wind can play a 3 drop for free whenever it attacks, and so that Know When to Hold Em isn't a bad card after you draw the first couple. Second Sight is so slow and inefficient, and makes you take your maximum power in damage instead of the 1-4 that you need to bring back specific units from your void.

I’m doing okay with the one I have. I might craft a second but I’ve never felt like my deck would be stronger with a full playset.

I added a couple of Portent Reader, but that might be too cute and Second Sight might be better. I also added a single Jotun Hurler, which IMO is an auto-include in any deck with Know When To Hold ‘Em

Why acquisitive crow? Just berserk + discard fodder?
Dinoweed1 Eternal Version: 20.12.23
Berserk counts as 2 triggers for throne room also discard fodder.

Whispering Wind doesn't draw anything if you discard Krull, right?
