Okessa asks for a couple things:
-chumps lying around to exhaust
-large relics to cheat into play
-relics going to the void
This deck tries to use every part of the animal. Tempo-ing out a 4/4 and a stonescar maul on turn 5 is plenty of value to win a game off of: it doesn't always need to be cheating Martyr's Chains
into play with Okessa! Siphoner paladin is notably absent because I want to keep my fodder around as much as possible to chump block and/or get exhausted by Okessa. Maybe some number of siphoners is correct in this deck but I'm pretty sure it isn't the full 4. Despite the "keep chumps around" rationale, I simply couldn't force myself to leave Carver out. It can help charge up Camoflage Musket, and that interaction was just too cute for me to cut.
Burden - generic time market staple
Lute - warcry hits virtually every card in the deck so you'll never have to wait, and the dragon clause is a nice way to make use of fodder. experimental.
Swirl - my relic hate of choice, also hits fliers which this type of gum-up-the-ground deck might otherwise struggle with
Bladecrafter - 4 drop for curve purposes after merchant on 3, gets you that one hooked sword when you need it. Hooked sword was just MADE for this type of deck!
Soldrain Smithing - so you've made a gratuitously large relic weapon and then lost it.... Might be better to move the Strange Blacksmiths to this spot and have a little more maindeck room, but I am 100% sure we want a piece of market weapon recursion.
