Expedition: Phoenix Pelt

Expedition Deck By
Team Not-Tavrod


Cost Curve




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 Carnosaurs. 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 Serpents, 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.
