Information

An Icaria Blue Plate greedpile that utilizes Spellcraft weapons with Horde Plunderer. I still need to experiment with other Spellcraft weapons though I'm using the ones commonly accepted as the best.

The manabase needs to be tweaked still but it's worked fine so far. I've found that I almost always use the first Merchant as a Petition-on-a-stick, which helps a lot with the influence reqs. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the 6-slot, I originally had 3x Nostrix but I subbed one for a Justice Sigil. I might try switching the last two out for OG Jekk or Rizahn. I've only started brewing it, so I've only played 12 games at 11-1, but it went on a 11 game streak then finally lost a game. Will continue to experiment but looks promising.

there might be more justification for Horde Plunderer through Gleaming Shield, which has been trending of late:

i think it works well with Shelterwing Rider and the Nostrix, Lord of Visions you're already running, but it might just be more of a 'win more' than a worthwhile pursuit
WesternCancer Eternal Version: 1.37.4
Yeah, it does seem like it'd be good with Rider. I was thinking of replacing Nostrix, I'm not sure what I'd replace him with but OG Jekk seems pretty funny with Shield.

pretty interesting, i like how much more 'over the top' it goes than the usual icaria plate list, i'm curious where this will end up.
what do you expect to be the worst matchup? skycrag aggro/tokens?

in my mind i can't see the justification for Horde Plunderer for only 7 spellcraft equips that you'd likely just cast for 5 anyway, especially without the blue merch to enable the likelihood of a Linebreaker's Shield on aegis unit + Horde Plunderer in the same turn

like, i dont even play horde plunderer in my FJP Plate list, despite still running bluemerch:

Yeah, I'd imagine those to be pretty bad matchups. I haven't played any more games yet since I'm working on a few Weapons-based Midrange decks. the

Yeah, it's only running sets of Blade and Shield at the moment. I've found that I lean towards trying to be more conservative when first starting a new deck, and then after building upon that foundation. Gleaming Shield was the next Spellcraft weapon I was thinking of putting in but it's definitely on a lower level than the two included, Bracers are good but I'm not sure if I'd run them in this deck. I still need to try those, and with 30 units mainboard I can afford to switch some for weapons.

Regarding Aegis: yeah, when I first started on the deck I was trying to figure out how much I wanted to go in on Aegis, e.g. Paladin vs. Icaria/Kothon or the Merchants. The blue Merchant is probably better in terms of being equipped weapons, but, at first glance, the market would seem to be weaker. I've been thinking about it today and haven't completely made the Market. It's something I'll try soon though.
