Alessi's back and better than ever. Most importantly, killer is more valuable than ever thanks to the popularity of sites. This deck does particularly well against the new Howling Peak decks, with an aggressive start plus killer and combat tricks up the wazoo.
Be Gone is the new Safe Return, and it gives us exactly the influence we need.
The strategy is the same as always; play lots of cheap units, give them killer and buff them. Protect them with aegis and replay them for cheap killer removal.
Marley is included for the extra aegis units as well as additional silences. 4 Annihilate are necessary against Vara, though she can also be silenced or simply killed by a buffed Alessi or Awakened Student.
