Theme : The Great Rift
Besides going for 5 faction greed pile powerbases, another way to play The Great Rift
is to cheat it out or to splash it using influence generating cards which are mostly seen in Time. Notably, Reap
and Memento Mori
generates all 5 Factions required for The Great Rift
. Therefore, an obvious way to do it is to play a Time Midrange shell for the deck.
Talking about Reap
, it has quite a good synergy with Surge effects, notably Svetya, Lightbringer
and Genetrix Irel, Wayward
. On the other hand, there also used to be a combo with Silvercrest Purifier
. And coincidentally, one of the Site Agendas for The Great Rift
. This gives the idea of a Combrei Midrange deck incorporating the Purifier combo in the market. (through Fair Exchange
The deck aims to get early ramp for either the Silvercrest Purifier
combo or big units like Worldbearer Behemoth
, another game-winning synergy is Svetya, Lightbringer
for a mega team buff to your deck. The deck is also splashing for Xulta Arcanum
since it synergises well with out other cards.
The flex spots are the early drops, Diana, Faith's Shield
and Binding Agreement
. You can consider cards like Marshal Ironthorn
, The Creation Project
and Moonstone Vanguard
Now, in terms of how effective it can be, I'm skeptical. Other than the Purifier combo (which can be achieved without Rift), why are we using Rift? It seems our cards exist to enable Rift, but not to benefit from the presence of Rift.
It seems that a more streamlined Surge deck would probably be more consistent.
