Information

This is the deck I used to make Master this season. The goal is to abuse discard effects to power up cards like Nomnom's Big Pan and Bone Music while accumulating value thanks to the Fate cards. The deck has also a plan B of reanimating Sadistic Grimalkin as a powerful play to get ahead.
You should keep a hand with good influence and some number of loot effects so you can shape your hand according to your needs.
I feel confident in every market slot except for Backlash wich I never actually played. Crystallize and Permafrost are the most important cards as you need cheap interaction often due to the lack of removals in the list, and Crystallize can just win you the game through a boardstall since you probably will have a lot of power in play thanks to Bone Music.
In Service can also reanimate Savior of the Meek wich makes it the second most important card in the list apart from Bone Music, try to not discard it.
I think the list is pretty powerful because you have multiple game plans that attacks opponents from different angles. You can win by just aggro but you also have "combo" draws where you reanimate an early monster and also if the game goes long you can start hardcasting Sadistic Grimalkin. The influence is sometimes tough, but the abundance of loot effects can bail you out of awkward spots.
The Fate cards makes the matchup vs any kind of usual aggro decks extremely favorable, Bone Music and cheap small units makes it very good vs control, the spots where you struggle are against midrange decks with a lot of must answer threats and efficient interaction, also keep an eye out for Save the Day, the card wrecks you.
That's it for me, hope you enjoy the list.

This is an amazing, off-the-wall deck, and I wish I found it sooner: I'm ecstatic to play it more.

Would you consider swapping the Crystallize for a Deep Freeze and/or swapping the Backlash for a Check-Raise?
KeithPelig Eternal Version: 23.05.10
Thanks for the kind words ! I think Deep Freeze would be a little too harsh on the mana-base and Check-Raise is not reliable in the late game so I don't like it.

Have you thought about Eclipse Wing as a one or two-of? I mostly used it as a replacement for 2 Meeks but it has done surprisingly well into Control matchups.
KeithPelig Edited Eternal Version: 23.03.22
I don't think it's worth it because it only works for the reanimator plan and doesn't do anything if you loot it, and it's harder to cast than Grimalkin while being worse against anything but control.

I think the most hilarious part about this deck is the way people misplay in the Hooru hunt matchup against you. I have had a lot of games where I’ve had pan with several units, and they hunt like 8 times and then attack cause they’re just playing their cards quickly and not waiting for triggers to clear, and then only after hitting attack do they realize that my little duders that have been clogging the board the whole game are now 7/7’s that walled their whole team and I just gained 20 life and killed 4 of their dudes

A+ for originality and deck construction. I don't even care if it wins or not. lol

Thank you !

Can confirm that this deck is insane. Climbed from 0 points in diamond 3 to masters rank 24 in under 2 hours. Checked the match history just now and my record of the last 20 games was 18-2. I would say the hardest part is figuring out what hands to mulligan. There were quite a few games where I mulled to six, and wasn’t sure how things were gonna run, and then nonsense insued anyway. Very good deck, lots of avenues to make plays. Although ironically I found it interesting that you never went to get backlash - it’s my most common market grab, or at least I hold up power in order to fetch it if need be.
Maxster Eternal Version: 23.03.08
Agreed. Save the Day is your biggest problem? Keep up 4 power and it is naught. If you didn't kill them already most control players give up immediately after you backlashed them. And bonus points for pinging face aegis, so you can play Crown.

Thanks for the kind words, glad it worked for you !

Did you try Mistveil Drake? not a hero + protect relics and stuff, is even castable in corner case
KeithPelig Edited Eternal Version: 23.03.08
Didn't try it as it doesn't got you ahead on board, also hardcasting it is atrocious if you lose Faegis. But said Faegis is nice vs Ziat and Feed the Hecaton, although you already have some Hecaton protection with the 8 fate cards. Don't know.
puchpuchacz Eternal Version: 23.03.08
Not a big fan of meek in aggro deck. Looks nice nevertheless!
KeithPelig Eternal Version: 23.03.08
I think the card should stay as it gives you another reanimation target and another dicard payoff that clogs the board. Sure it can't attack but it gives you a lot of time by just blocking and powers out Bone Music.
