8th of August Update: I've been playing a lot more games with this week and I can confidently say it has a solid 80% winrate in ranked. I'll upload another few images for anyone who wants them but I now have seven screenshots showing this :) 2nd of August Update: The listing has been updated. I will amend the description on how to play it over the next few days.
Are you tired of seeing Red/Green aggro decks? Do you prefer something more midrange but hate being slaughtered by aggro decks? Do you want to draw all of the cards ever without dirtying yourself with Blue
A long time ago I published a deck on here called Evenhanded Sentinels. It was very popular and worked very well. Ever since then I have been chasing the dragon, trying to recreate a deck that synergies so well with Evenhanded Golem
and I think that I finally
This deck revolves around Surge
and significant amount of ways to draw cards or play power. Honestly we have so much Plunder
that we might as well be pirates! Arrrrrhhh.
Our two main win conditions are also to either go hyper aggressive as we have mostly two cost cards in our deck, or to slam Svetya, Lightbringer
to start boosting our deck or to simply shut our opponents down when we have board control.
pairs exceptionally well with both Hojan, Crownbreaker
and Siege Train
. Note that while these combo's can be strong I more often than not simply cast it at it the end of my opponents turn to either draw a copy of Evenhanded Golem
or Svetya, Lightbringer
Friends in Low Places
also has great synergy with this deck and since we are already able to ramp influence we do try to build up to six of each prior to using it. While this is the goal dont be afraid to cast it early. The card is still new enough that people seem to forget its a thing and arent expecting a +4/+4 instant. Though when you do get it off at full potential it is especially brutal if your lucky enough to get a free Aegis on any of your four drops from it.
So far I have yet to lose a game once I get out Svetya, Lightbringer
play a Badge of Honor
on it and top it off with a Ironthorn, Lawman
While refining this deck I used it in around 20 casual games and 20 ranked, but since the update I have used this version in close to 60 games. Currently I'm sitting an an 80% win rate which I'm VERY happy with! Since a lot of the deck is so cheap and we have huge draw potential I've even comeback from the dreaded power flood/draught.
This deck does suffer to anything that can add odd costing cards to our deck, however don't be disheartened! While it makes Evenhanded Golem[/b] irrelevant we still have all our our card draw through plunder!
Also upon reading the listing I often hear concerns about why we list Navani, Warsinger
. This is a flavour card and one you can swap if you do not like it, however this deck creates lots of threats and as such the real skill is in knowing when to play it. Sometimes you will be doing it to intentionally draw out your opponents removal but at others you will play it when it's very unlikely that they can stop it. Honestly though with the amount of draw and smaller units that we have it can be huge to get a few attacks from it. If you don't want to craft it as it doesn't fit in many decks then that is completely understandable but if you have it then definitely
play it until your comfortable using it before you consider a substitute as you may well change your mind!
