Stonescar Smugglers

Throne Deck By


Cost Curve




This is one of a few decks I have created to make the best use of Smuggler's Toll. The other versions can be seen here (Winchest, Midrange) and here (Stonescar, Evenhanded, slight Valk theme). This version is dual-faction, with an aggressive early game.

Here's how we proc Smuggler's Toll in this deck:
- Bloodseeker (at the end of our turn)
- Argenport Instigator (if a unit dies on our turn, such as Piercing Grief. Instigator will proc off of itself if it dies.)
- Blazing Salvo
- Impending Doom (at the end of our turn)
- Sanguine Reaper (if we attack - Cursed Relics, while literally attached to the other player, do count as us having a relic.)
- Wyatt's Junkyard (each turn)
- Stonescar Vow
- Emblem of Shavka, Emblem of Makkar

Here's how we stay alive since we are constantly whittling away our own health pool:
- Spiteful Strike
- Extract
- Piercing Grief
- Blood Quill from our Market
- Fall of House Roa

Important to know when playing this deck: Each instance of self-damage will proc Smuggler's Toll a separate time, so long as the damage is on your turn. For example, if we had:

1. Two Smuggler's Tolls in play
2. Two Argenport Instigators in play
3. One Piercing Grief in play, who we attack with
4. One Stonescar Vow that we play

When the Piercing Grief dies at the end of our turn, say after hitting face for 3 damage (3), it will proc two 1-damage hits on us (one for each Argenport Instigator). This will, in turn, proc both Smuggler's Tolls twice each, for four instances of 3 damage each (12). Lastly, we use our Stonescar Vow to hit ourselves for 1 damage, proccing each of our two Smuggler's Tolls an additional time for 6 additional damage.

So, our total damage to face in this turn would be 3 + 12 + 6 = 21 damage.

I ended up building a very similar deck then finding yours when I thought about posting mine!
I added Jack's knife for a little extra burst potential and cut a lot of the lifesteal. Most of my games end up down to the wire which I like, but having the lifesteal probably makes yours more consistent!

Jack's Knife would definitely be a solid choice in here somewhere. My games tend to come down to the wire sometimes even with lifesteal - I found that without it, I would kill myself sometimes. I also needed a good combat trick for early-game aggro, and Spiteful Strike fits that perfectly.
