My take on temporal that took me to top 200 masters.
The idea I had when making this deck was: fire is really good, so how do I fit that into a temporal (TJP) deck?
I had tried many variants of a four faction version, but all of them seemed very inconsistent.
Splashing fire for Display of Instinct
and Xo of the Endless Hoard
was fine, but at that point it wasn't really a different deck.
The next step was replacing one of the existing factions with fire.
Time was important because it had a major core card, Temporal Distortion
Primal had all the major card draw engine, such as Strategize
, Wisdom of the Elders
, and Brilliant Idea
Therefore, I gave up justice.
Fire allows us to play Torch
, a great card that helps us in the early game, that we definitely need as we no longer have Defiance
. Display of Instinct
is an extremely versatile card. It can act as a counterspell, removal, heal, or even burn. Moment of Creation
is our finisher, replacing The Great Parliament
. Xo of the Endless Hoard
is an obvious inclusion, giving us card advantage as well as a strong unit. Treasure Trove
buffs up our Moment of Creation
as well. Howling Peak
is a great value card, playing spells to buff Moment of Creation
and mirroring merchants is very helpful Kaleb, Reborn
is great for refueling a dead hand. Finally, I have two copies of Bore
, whose main purpose is to remove multiple copies of Permafrost
or any relics, as well as buffing Moment of Creation
The time merchant is extremely important. It has aggro removal in Cirso's Choice
, ramp with Eternity Core
, Moment of Creation
as a finisher, Temporal Distortion
for obvious reasons, and Excavate
to regain cards from the void.
can replace Cirso's Choice in the market, especially against the Vara combo, but when I was playing I faced more aggro
The rest of the deck is pretty self explanatory. Switching around which cards are three-ofs and four-ofs can be good, but I feel this setup is one of the best. The power base is nothing special either.
I'm open to suggestions!
