Information

The deck's full name is Alessi Broti Crescendo Derry Enforcer Furious.

This is the main deck I've been playing in Throne for the last month or so. I haven't been keeping track of my winrate, but it has been very high, both before and after the Dinosaur Nest nerf (which hurt this deck a bit, but also other decks got worse too). I entered masters at rank 1 today (March 17) and thought I'd post the deck to celebrate.

The deck plays out somewhat like a 3f version of classic Combrei Aggro - you play some cheap huge units (the 12 1-drops here are all very large) and back them up with some good protection/evasion/pump spells (headlined by the classic Crescendo -> Stand Together combo). Getting to play Trials and Tribulations in a deck with 12 1-drops because they all survive it is very silly. Nest/Enforcer/Magniventris help you win longer games, but you also sometimes just run people over with 2 or 3 of the giant 1-drops.

The market is fairly straightforward - Stand Together is the most common card you get, but Pristine Light and Qirin Ascendant are very good too sometimes. It is nice that in addition to surviving Trials, your units also often all survive Pristine Light. Killing two large enemy units with Pristine Light and then attacking with Broti, Derry, Magniventris for 15 feels like cheating somehow. Huntress is occasionally useful (e.g. to kill Tocas or if you just need another unit and Ascendant isn't good), and Nullify can either be a P sigil or an answer to Equalize.

In terms of matchups, I've felt somewhat unfavored against Xenan (Tocas can be a pain and End of an Era sometimes gets you) and good to great in all other matchups. As usual with this style of deck, you absolutely destroy smaller unit decks like yetis.

A few miscellaneous interactions that show up when playing the deck:
1) Broti and Trials have some antisynergy in that if you play Trials before combat and then attack, your units will do less damage because of the Trials damage on them. This can still be the correct play if you need to clear a blocker, but sometimes you should attack first and then Trials.

2) You can play Bless the Wild on an enemy unit to negate a spell too. In particular you can negate Etchings in this way, which can be pretty relevant against Xenan.

3) On the other hand, don't be too reluctant to play Bless just for the +1/+1 without negating a spell. The +1/+1 can still swing combat, decrease your clock, or otherwise get good value, especially if you have Alessi out, if you are about to Mirror Image a unit, or if you would like to ultimate Derry and need a second spell in void.

4) Qirin Ascendant attacks for 3 with Broti's help, so you can sometimes Mastery it quite quickly.
