All the Deadly Killers

Gauntlet Deck By


Cost Curve




Great budget deck for Gauntlet! For whatever reason the AI refuses to attack into deadly units unless they have the overwhelming tactical advantage.

This deck requires a careful hand when piloting. A good opening hand will have 2-3 power and at least one of the following: Auralian Infestation, Nocturnal Creeper, or Sand Viper.

Turn 1 play Auralian Infestation or a depleted power.

Turn 2 play Nocturnal Creeper or Sand Viper.

Turn 3 is a flexible turn, either play Expedition Leader and Potion of Alacrity to draw cards if you opened with Auralian Infestation; or play Amaran Stinger if they left an opening to land the scorpions to the opponents deck; or play the Auralian Merchant to get a Xenan Obelisk or Predator's Instinct or Sandstorm Scarf as needed; or hold up the power to let the opponent play into a Scorpion Wasp.

Turn 4 is also pretty flexible. Ideally, you'll have a few deadly units in play now and can just play a Xenan Obelisk. You can also play a Venom Rider if you need to establish better board presence. You may need to play or to control troublesome opposing units. Lastly, you may need to play a to fetch a needed piece of removal or to get a Xenan Obelisk or Sandstorm Scarf or even the Striking Snake Formation to use as a limited board wipe next turn.

Turn 5 is all about stabilizing. Play Vital Arcana to get a little life and draw cards, or play Lumen Defender to gain major life and drop a deadly and difficult to manage blocker.

From this point on, you will likely be in a commanding position.

A few points. This is NOT an aggro deck! Sometimes it wins early, but it usually will make it to 8 - 10 power before winning. This is NOT a control deck! There isn't enough removal to really play it as control. This is mostly a tempo deck, if you are careful and patient it pays off. Don't trade early unless you have to, use your life as a resource. This deck has won many games for me from 8 or less life. And finally, HAVE FUN! :D

I wrote a thorough guide for the deck. I hope it helps. Good Luck! :D

I built it after I was already at master in Gauntlet. I’m sorry if you’re having trouble with it. As far as I know, there isn’t any deck that wins seven gauntlet games every time. This deck averages 6-7 wins for me at Gauntlet master.
