Winchest Smugglers

Throne Deck By


Cost Curve




This is one of a few decks I have created to make the best use of Smuggler's Toll. The other versions can be seen here (Stonescar, Aggro) and here (Stonescar, Evenhanded, slight Valk theme). This version is tri-faction, a bit less aggro and a bit more midrange.

Here's how we proc Smuggler's Toll in this deck:
- Bloodseeker (at the end of our turn)
- Argenport Instigator (if a unit dies on our turn, such as Piercing Grief. Instigator will proc off of itself if it dies.)
- Endless Step Rebuilder (if we have no units in our void to pull at the start of our turn - if we do, well...he's just a cheap big boy!)
- Display of Ambition (if we choose the mode that pulls two units from our void)
- Impending Doom (at the end of our turn)
- Sanguine Reaper (if we attack - Cursed Relics, while literally attached to the other player, do count as us having a relic. It counts as both players having a relic, actually.)
- Desecrate and each turn of Wyatt's Junkyard from our Market
- Stonescar Vow
- Each of our Emblems (Emblem of Shavka, Emblem of Makkar, Emblem of Kodosh)

Here's how we stay alive since we are constantly whittling away our own health pool:
- Xenan Lifespeaker (Inspiring Bloodseeker or Impending Doom still allows them to self-damage us, but we instantly heal the 1 damage back through lifesteal - very useful for staying alive in longer games)
- Piercing Grief
- Vara, Vengeance-Seeker from our Market

Important to know when playing this deck: Each instance of self-damage will proc Smuggler's Toll a separate time, so long as the damage is on your turn. For example, if we had:

1. Two Smuggler's Tolls in play
2. Two Argenport Instigators in play
3. One Piercing Grief in play, who we attack with
4. One Stonescar Vow that we play

When the Piercing Grief dies at the end of our turn, say after hitting face for 3 damage (3), it will proc two 1-damage hits on us (one for each Argenport Instigator). This will, in turn, proc both Smuggler's Tolls twice each, for four instances of 3 damage each (12). Lastly, we use our Stonescar Vow to hit ourselves for 1 damage, proccing each of our two Smuggler's Tolls an additional time for 6 additional damage.

So, our total damage to face in this turn would be 3 + 12 + 6 = 21 damage.
