This deck started off life as silly jank and then, unexpectedly, took me on a 28-0 gauntlet winstreak that's still ongoing at time of writing. The AI grossly underestimates Trumpeting Warhowler
and the wacky shenanigans you can do with it (especially with Zuberi, Crunch, and Mokhnati) plus does a really poor job of predicting fast spells like Ice Bolt
. Putting all this together means you can build up some absurdly strong topdecks with a few zuberi swings and burst out surprise lethal with ease.
Your ideal goal in brief is to get killer on Zuberi, Outlands Warlord
, then draw as many cards as possible with him and Warhowler on the board. Crunch, the Hoarder
, Honor of Claws
, and the awesome new Sodi, Wingbreaker
all facilitate the draw side of this - Sodi and Groundbreaker
are also at the really excellent 3/6 statline which lets them duck things like Vanquish
while being solid blockers. Groundbreaker also prevents annoying lifesteal decks from getting out of hand and, with double damage, can really rack up the pain. Howling Peak
is still a great card that can turn any slim lead into an absolute blowout thanks to Gun Down
and Mirror Image
built into it; If you can copy a killer zuberi you probably just won the game on the spot. Especially if you give a Champion of Fury
+4 attack and double damage :D
The market is still undergoing testing but Mokhnati, Restored
is a hard lock here. Pulling him from market with Zuberi and Warhowler out gives you a massive
endgame finisher for games that drag on. Torrential Downpour
helps versus the many token/aggro decks in the gauntlet, and Flame Blast
is a highly useful card for both removal and reach damage. The other 2 slots are a little more questionable; I'm not wholly convinced a Skycrag Banner
is the right call, for instance.
1) Why no Preyfinder
I'm of the mindset that Preyfinder is honestly a bad card. Honor of Claws
does a better job of drawing cards since you don't need a developed board full of killers to get value from it, she's not a particularly great blocker, and Howling Peak
is a *much* more reliable card for accelerating a lead you already hold.
2) Why no Jotun Feast-Caller
I thought about it as a market inclusion for a while, but honestly a 4/4 aegis killer just isn't a particularly good card at this point in Eternal. It's been kind of powercreeped out. Mokhnati is a much better better "big threat that draws us cards" even if it does cost 3 more power.
3) Can I play this deck on ranked ladder?
Probably! I Played this up from Bronze to Silver with a ~75% WR earlier this month. Far from being "serious business" but it felt reasonably good while doing so. You will probably struggle versus decks featuring a large number of board wipes and anyone getting a good Royal Decree
hit off, however, due to the synergistic nature of our units.
Feedback definitely appreciated on this. I hope you have as much fun playing it as I have!
