Slightly less embarrassing now that it has an Insignia (I actually think this is pretty decent). Banish is also basically Hero's Downfall now.

Could Dizos Office work in place of Temple if I don't have them or is that not advisable?
LightsOutAce Eternal Version: 1.46 I
7 is a loooot more than 5. Temple is the reason the deck works - Temple while ahead is insurmountable for most decks.
joepunchface Eternal Version: 1.46 I
Very insightful answer, thanks LightsOutAce!

This deck is the truth. I went from rank 363 to 8th in about 3 hours. I’ve gone up and down a bit in the days since, but I’m currently at 6th and on a 12 win streak

Ambushing Xumucan into Temple is dirty. Really nice that we have the Insignia to enable that now.

Mix that with Gnash and the nerfs to Rakano, and I think this has the pieces to be a real deck now.

Edit: After more playtesting, I have discovered that the Eternal playerbase has trouble counting to 5.
Riffler Eternal Version: 1.46 I
Can't count to 5? They also don't know how Ambush works with relic weapon attacks; Open mana for a Xumucan I just got back with Dark Return? Opponent deems Stormholt Knife and swing with it a good play.

“Stop hitting yourself.” :)

Lots of people attacking into Xumu? Also, is that name a reference to the gamefaqs melee boards circa 2009?
ASkill3dR0y Eternal Version: 1.46 I
You bet it is lmao.

And yeah, people are showing no fear when I leave 5 mana open. I guess Xumu hasn’t been prevalent enough for people to recognize it.
HamAndSwiss Edited Eternal Version: 1.46 I
Ive been having similar experiences tbh. People play into him so often. It makes for some great mindgames. Also, just won a game where opponent spent all game ramping to get 8 owls down, just to have them all thrown back into the deck. Feels great!
ASkill3dR0y Eternal Version: 1.46 I
Reminds me of when I used a surprise Xumu to get a killer attack on an icaria, and then used Gnash to clean up the 15/14 Rizahn that came after.

This deck’s nut plays are satisfying af.
HamAndSwiss Eternal Version: 1.46 I
Beautiful. I also like when opponent is under 7 health and you abush him in after combat, remove any blockers and slam.

Xumu is a riot, banish buffed is awesome, teacher consistently on 2 is nuts. I love it.

Thinking about sneaking in a dizo's office but not sure where

Could jam Office in the market over Azy
