Budget Gauntlet Shadow Grinder

Gauntlet Deck By


Cost Curve




Hello, I'm fairly new to this game.
This is the deck I used to grind gold to buy most of the campaings. It is nothing new but it is really consistent and easy to pilot
You basically win by controlling the board until you play your Icaria, First Reaper,Eremot, Mindsplinter. You can take out Vara, Vengeance-Seeker in case you don't have the campaign

In case you are interested, I'm going to explain most of the cards:

Evenhanded Golem Simple card draw, it gives the deck more ways to reach power and big units
Defile,Annihilate and Fell Ritual: Removal

Spiritweaver,Vara's Favor: Fixing. Most of the time you want spiritweaver for the power but it´s also really useful beacause of the lifesteal (specially with Unpending Doom)

Seek Answers : I really like this card and its flexibility

Blightmoth: Destroys Strangers, Onis,Grenadins and aggro bosess

Eremot, Mindsplinter, Vara, Vengeance-Seeker,Impending Doom and Icaria, First Reaper: THE units that help you win, Icaria is busted, Eremot controls the board and provides a little bit of healing and Vara and Impending Doom are good mid-game

Last Chance and Immortalize: You mainly want to bring back flying or lifesteal units.The first one can save you at the last minue, the 2 mana difference with Inmortalize is important. However Inmortalize can give exalted to Nihil Draconus and other big units in case you need lifesteal

Umbren Voidbringer and Memory Dredger can be replaced with anything you want

I left some replacements/alternatives as a sideboard in case you want to try them out
Anyway, thanks for reading this and I hope you enjoy it!

Nice deck, cheap, fast and effective, ty for share it. Two tries, two 7-0 wins, in master rank. Obviously, if IA works in hard-punish mode, nothing to do, but this is for every deck when IA don't want give your "money" xd
