I took out the Petitions for 3 more Cobalt Waystones and have gone 13-4 so far.

Nice! Any other suggestions for how you'd improve the deck? I'm not convinced that there are the correct # of Poaching Drakes, or that Poaching Drake is even the correct card for that slot.

Currently testing a JPS version with Regent's Tomb at that slot with some decent results so far.

Poaching Drake isn't amazing, but it does a bunch of different things decently well (disrupting opponent's units, blocking, clocking). I'm not sure that Hooru has a better option at 4, but you could try Marley or Aeva. The other option is to play more 2 cost units and make the deck a bit more proactive. That would also mean going up to 4 Decrees and cutting Strategize and Honor of Claws.

I don't think adding a third faction to the deck is a very good idea, because the consistency of the deck is one of its best strengths at the moment. Sadly, the real answer to improving the deck probably involves taking out the Secret Weapons, but that would be no fun

I am not sure if I am gonna craft it yet. But I just got a shine secret weapon. I think it's god telling me to enjoy the junk party.

Thoughts on moving this to argentport and trying that out? Having vara, void spells and removal could help a lot
Syntricate Eternal Version: 1.46.7
Losing the consistency of Strategize + Honor of Claws, Ice Bolt as fast removal, and Royal Decree are all tough sells, but I agree that void spells and more removal could be good. We also gain access to Lost Scroll, which can replace Petition as a means of ramping us past the awkward 3 slot. I don't think that Vara is a good idea for the reason that losing Aegis on your Secret Weapons exposes you to sweepers (e.g. Harsh Rule).

I'll give it a spin and post an update if it ends up working! There might even be an extra spicy JPS brew in there.

Yeah thats a good analysis. I didn't consider the nonbo between her and secret weapon. Give it a shot, let me know what you figure out, Im interested to see where this idea can go :)

I spent 8k shift on this deck and it was worth every Stone. Got three Secret Weapons and a Tamarys emerged in one turn which so happened to be the last turn of the game. Nice work!
Syntricate Eternal Version: 1.46.7
Glad you like it! I've been trying out Lethrai Soothsayer in place of Poaching Drake, with mixed results. Also considering dropping Korovyat Palace and a copy of Strategize for that sweet, sweet Reweave jank.

If you're looking to actually improve the deck, here are some suggestions I've compiled:

* Dropping Auric Runehammer for Stormhalt Knife
* Swapping out some copies of Strategize for more power, Eilyn's Favor, or another 2-drop (e.g,. Crownwatch Paladin)
* Swapping out a copy of Honor of Claws for more targeted removal

Let me know what you come up with!
