I spent all week working on the coolest deck that would only involve non-sigils that start with the letters in "Child's Play"
Your options are a little shallow when you can't play a lot of format staples such as Eremot's Machinations, Finest Hour, and many more.
My biggest ideas were:
+ Surgeon's Saw Shardbinder
+ Siege Provisions Defile
+ Drawing the unit from your void
+ ways to get ahead on the curve
+ Insistent Automaton Insistent Automaton
+ Lumen Attendant
Part of the problem was trying to find a good shell to surround these synergies.
While this deck might just look like a "bad version" of Combrei Aggro, I guarantee it plays out differently with similar tools.
There are a lot of good mid game and late game elements here. Using Auric Record Keeper
and Combrei Healer
allows you to effect your cards in a way that is beneficial to Dark Return
off of Surgeon's Saw
. Siege Provisions
can look a bit clunky when Shardbinder
aren't involved, but if you look at the other cards, we have plenty of ways to gain health and utilize a slower and more late game plan of pumping power into one or two Siege Provisions
Some concessions had to be made in the power base if I only wanted to use ACDHILPSY (letters in Child's Play). The key decision I made here was to not play any card that require double of a single faction, being able to make any multifaction power + Diplomatic Seal
able to satisfy all influence requirements.
As a small touch, I put cards in my market that spell out "CHILD" to not forget the reason why I'm playing in this event and promoting it. I thought about Child's Play constantly throughout this deck building process (for obvious reasons) and hope this tournament is a huge success!!
