Information

* Legal Disclaimer * IMHO, there is only 1 competitive tier 1 deck after the Endra nerfs. Icaria Black has no bad matchups except for maybe Diogo Combo which no one plays, and it destroys stuff like Combrei Aggro. So if you care only about winning, go look at one of those lists and don't ask me why Icaria is not in this list :P

Ok, with that out of the way, this list is still quite good and fun, and with people giving up on Endra Hate, Haunting Scream is ready for its new debut. This card got the side nerf/buff which is actually pretty powerful. By being able to scream 5 cost, Umbren Reaper and Rost, the Walking Glacier, you can burst for ridiculous damage and if you don't hit your early Scream, you can just play them and start punching.

So this deck behaves like Reanimator except you actually can win without the void for a change. That said, cards like Herald's Song, Back-Alley Delinquent, Honor of Claws, and Felrauk the Outcast are so powerful in this style of deck that we want all of them too.

Beyond that, I've found that Fell Ritual is really underappreciated for void recursion strategies. It simultaneously puts a great scream target in the void and removes their biggest threat. Bingo.

Cheers to the guy who played a West-Wind Herald version in my very first game with this deck! I still haven't seen any one else playing this type of list.

KiraSama Eternal Version: 1.49.3
So could i have an answer to my question?
VoidKing Eternal Version: 1.49.3
What version of Icaria Black have you seen?
djwarpt Eternal Version: 1.49.3
Pretty typical Winchest lists are 8 smugglers, 4 Vara, 4 Rizahn, 4 Icaria with a healthy dose of Shadow removal cards.
djwarpt Eternal Version: 1.49.3
I'll post my current list.
VoidKing Eternal Version: 1.49.3
Sweet, thank you! I've seen the version with Eremot's Designs, but not quite sold on that version, really.
djwarpt Eternal Version: 1.49.3
I agree; I wanted to like that card but found it to be an expensive Defiance.
VoidKing Eternal Version: 1.49.3
Yeah, and it rarely ever pays off for me. Can't think of one time it has, so far. I like it and all, but I usually just market it away.
Mightisright Edited Eternal Version: 1.49.3
How do you manage with primal influence? By the looks of it, playing Rost from hand turn 5 is highly unlikely. I'm guessing you play him from the void?
djwarpt Eternal Version: 1.49.3
The idea is not to play the units unless the draw goes wrong. You want to scream them from the void after discarding.
smokinadoobs Eternal Version: 1.49.3
There are only 3 non-Primal power sources in the deck, I don’t see too much of an issue.
KiraSama Edited Eternal Version: 1.49.3
How the deck doing ? I play expedition and would like to know if its good for ladder before crafting. Thanks
djwarpt Eternal Version: 1.49.3
This is a Throne deck because of Haunting Scream
KiraSama Eternal Version: 1.49.3
I know I want to try throne
djwarpt Eternal Version: 1.49.3
It is fine for laddering; I would say it's a strong Tier 2 option. Games are reasonably fast, so that helps too, but Icaria Black still reigns supreme, and this deck has a hard time dealing with it. I'll post my current Icaria Black list since there's some interest.

Would be cool thx
