Here’s a deck that has been loads of fun to play in the Expedition format. It can sometimes do some ridiculous stuff. It may not be great, for sure, but it offers a lot of entertainment if you have the stones to throw around. Phoenix Stone
, that is.
Expedition seems to be light on people playing relic removal which works to this deck’s benefit. Vargo's Pelt
buffs cards transformed into units by giving them +2/+2. Phoenix Stone you transform it into a 4/4 Molten Phoenix
. If you transform the Stone when you’ve got Pelt on board, your bird gets the buff. But that’s only an ancillary benefit of this deck. When it happens, you’ve got the nuts.
The other enablers are Elvish Swindler
which you play a 2-cost relic upon summon. You grab your Pelt. Deranged Dinomancer
transforms units on board into huge Carnosaur
s. It has Unstable Form
to use on your units or your opponent’s depending on the need, and hitting Elvish Swindler with it or Deranged Dinomancer can be particularly helpful.
In the Market, you have two key cards. Hatchery Hunter
transforms your hand into 3/3 Sky Serpent
s, but with Pelt on board, you’re getting huge 2-cost units. And of course, there’s a Shimmerpack
if you’re living the dream.
