Achtung! Grenadins!

Gauntlet Deck By


Cost Curve




Probably not the BEST deck for Gauntlet, but it's pretty fun to play and gets a sensible win rate.

The "always win" condition is to get a Scraptank out, draw cards win the Stonescar Scrapper by sacrificing ALL your grenadins and put a Heretic's Cannon on the Scraptank. The new Stonehewer makes this whole deck much easier to play as you only need 3 powers to get either the Scraptank out or the Stonescar Scrapper. Usually when you've managed to lose at least 1 grenadin while the Scraptank is out, the AI is doomed

You also get very enjoyable combos, like Madness + Combust, which takes 2 units out, potentially deals damage along the way and could also benefit the Scraptank.

Don't worry about losing all your grenadins early on because the Gearcruncher resets all of their deaths.

The market is mostly for the lulz, except for the Heretic's Cannon and the Combustion Cell which sometimes help combo with Madness or give the extra power for Gearcruncher.

Some extra tips:
1- Prioritize Stonescar Scrapper over Scraptank as it can block and score some extra life points while resisting Torch and Mortar.
2- Do not play Stonehewer unshifted unless you have 6 or 7 power.
3- Once you have a Scraptank out, attack with all your lowlifes grenadins. The AI ins't aware of the implications of killing them.
4- Delay Prickly Grenadin as much as possible until the AI has 2 or less cards in hard as they get to choose. They usually have a gazillion of power cards to discard before that.
5- The AI doesn't understand the implications of killing the Devious Drone.
6- A "good" starting hard has no Gearcruncher, at least one Stonehewer and a Stonescar Scrapper or Scraptank. You don't need the Cen Wastes Smuggler until much later on, or at most 1 of them if you think you might get mana screwed.
