Cost Curve




Do you like long grindy games?
Do you like having so many lines of play you'll probably never figure out the best one?
Do you feel like doing your part to help keep the environment clean?

Then this deck is for you!

This deck is all about getting value, and then more value, and then even more VALUE!
This deck was initially inspired by me getting wrecked in draft by a decimated Immortalize getting back an Omnivorous Vorlunk and basically wiping my board. So I started with that concept, and pushed it as far as I could.

I've tried a lot of different combinations of cards in this list, and I'm finally happy with the current 75 (market could be improved). It shares a lot of cards with other Xenan shells out there, but really maximizes on the recursion and killer theme. I won't go over every card in the deck for now, but I promise you, immortalize into vorlunk, putting a weapon on a Ardent Convert, and then another one of your guys, and then playing a Shadowlands Guide is boatloads of fun!

This is the first really good brew I've done in a while, so I hope you guys enjoy it! Let me know what you think in the comments, I will probably do more of a write-up when I find the time.

Looks cool. Gonna give this one a try. Would've been cool if Twilight Hunt was available, but that's Expedition for ya.
Soulsbornepain Eternal Version: 1.47.8
Trying -3 Xenan Lifespeaker, -1 Scorpion, +4 Dread. Substituted Wurm Bait with Infite Hourglass due to budget constraints and Surgeon's Saw with one Xenan Lifespeaker since power seems to be an issue. What do you think?
Ninjacan Eternal Version: 1.47.8
lifespeaker is not totally necessary. I mostly wanted to make sure to always have 1 drops to return with the guide. hourglass is a decent choice, it's not too important in this deck though since you have a lot of sacrifice outlets for permafrosted units

Dread has some fun synergies with exalted as well

I will try the deck one day. But how does it do vs Greed piles? I have lost some terrible games to decks just jamming 8 sites, without charge there are very limited ways to clear sites. Even with your killer, I don't know if you outspeed enough.

I feel like Adjuticator's Gavel basically just hard counters this deck.
Ninjacan Eternal Version: 1.47.6
is that card in expedition? I haven't seen anyone play it
sto650 Eternal Version: 1.47.6
It's absolutely in expedition. I have it in my Combrei deck because of cultists.
Tomchew Eternal Version: 1.47.6
Could you give a but more detail on how to use this deck, havent been able to win any games with it, played about 20 in explorer and some in throne. Maybe im just unlucky with draws.
TheStray Eternal Version: 1.47.6
I was having the same problem as you. I think I figured it out though. I believe it revolves around decimating the immortalize card to bring back the omnivorous vorlunk, then getting an ardent convert or nahids faithful in the game to put the exalted killer weapon on so that your shadowlands guide can bring back the 1 cost unit with killer. My big problem is I have all the pieces sitting in front of me and I can't put it together quick enough to actually get the best value. I might be completely wrong as well.
TheStray Eternal Version: 1.47.6
I played this today. Had a couple epic games that could have gone either way through the entire match. I must be cursed because when I played this in the expedition melee event today I was pulling 2 power for all 3 draws for about 2 or 3 of my matches. I think I'm a little confused with how to play it. It took me a little while to realize that you never want to get an exalted unit killed unless you have another exalted to transfer it's stats to. I did record the match that seemed to go on forever with an unbelievable comeback. I just need to figure out how to make a highlight on Twitch. Thanks for the fun deck.
iso89 Eternal Version: 1.47.6
i'm trying it and i see that is very hard to master, i compleately destroy a control deck bouncing exalted unit one to another all the time and he was never capable to clear my board....very impressive deck... good job man!!! i realy like it
Ninjacan Eternal Version: 1.47.6
glad you like it! I'm seeing more and more Xenan lists lately playing with immortalize main. mirror matches are quite complex
iso89 Edited Eternal Version: 1.47.6
i agree, after a day or two i notice that i srtuggle a lot against xenan midrange that use silence effects...but anyway i'm having fun......i also notice that a lot of time i decimate to much and dont have power to use market cards or i play to much cards in the early game and i dont have resources to continue the game

i maybe would like to test some changes if i will have positive results i will let you know ;)
Ninjacan Eternal Version: 1.47.6
ya, that's exactly the reason I'm playing only 3 merchants
StarBright Eternal Version: 1.47.6
Man, you can do some ridiculous fast-speed shenanigans with this deck. Very fun for my first foray into Expedition. Thank you!
Ninjacan Eternal Version: 1.47.6
glad you enjoyed it :)
ArrowofKira22 Eternal Version: 1.47.6
Oh man that really looks like fun! Thanks for sharing!
Simkeoda Edited Eternal Version: 1.47.6
Nice work, great list!
I switched out Thrashing Dune Wurm for Ark of Sol in the market, it can really accelerate early game.
Ninjacan Eternal Version: 1.47.6
ya, dune wurm needs to go, I haven't tried ark of sol yet, I was thinking maybe just an edict or something
Simkeoda Eternal Version: 1.47.6
Yea edict is always a good choice. I also switched Sadistic Ritualist for Wurm Bait and it's looking good...had a few games with wurms going to insane numbers. One game in particular I played immortalize on a 8/8 wurm in the void while Lifespeaker was on board...pure gold :)
Again, great list!
battlebeetle Eternal Version: 1.47.6
Awesome brew! Way to think outside the box. Nice to see something other than goodstuff decks.
