Jishu, Jekk and Milos walk into a Gauntlet...

Gauntlet Deck By


Cost Curve




If you curve out 1-4, you just win. They simply can't stop you.
Most cards are well known and proven in fire based aggro decks. I'll explain the more unusual inclusion/exclusions below.

Jishu, the Burning Brush: Why aren't you guys running her?? She's great! She tutors the great top end of the deck (Kaleb's Persuader or the single copy of Worldshaper's Staff if you don't have 4 power) More importantly, she turns your 1 drops into actual damage dealers. Our one drop oni are great if played on curve but become terrible later on when there is a huge gap between having 2 attack and 3 attack. Jishu takes care of that.

Furyblade: If you swing twice it's a better char. You don't care about losing health at all. The great thing about this is that you can carry it between turns which means you can curve out while removing blockers (For example if opponent plays a 3/2 into your third turn you can kill it and still play Milos, Rebel Bomber and attack with him. You couldn't do that with Torch) Much better than most cheap removal cards.

Worldshaper's Staff: I'm trying this out. Seems really nice as a one off. +1/+1 and a 5/5. Can be tutored by Jishu, the Burning Brush when you think it's useful. I think Shogun's Scepter is a reasonable alternative if the staff underperforms.

Kaleb's Persuader: Wow. Just wow. Wonderful top end for the deck alongside Jekk, Mercenary Hunter. Everyone knows how good Jekk is. Trust me the Persuader is as good if not better on 4. Also you can get double trigger from Jekk and Milos if you play it on them. We're running 27 power instead of 25 to make it more likely that we can hit either Jekk or Persuader on exactly turn 4. It's such a power play if you can get it.

No Sear: Sear is best used as a spot removal, but it isn't efficiently costed for the hyper aggressive nature of this deck.You want to spend maximum 1 power to remove blockers and spend the rest on putting as much pressure as possible. Sear especially in the early turns hinders your plan so so much. Having to play sear on 2 or 3 and having no remaining power to develop threats feels so awful.

Edit: Added some new cards. I've cut Worldshaper's Staff because it makes the Prism Golem unplayable and that's a risk I don't want to take. Also the AI always picks +3/+3 for the Volatile Grenadin for some reason and 5/5 for 2 is good.
Suggestions and arguments are more than welcome.

Hey I've been playing your deck in ranked now for a while last month i made master with it and this month i have already made master again (at 9th) lol when i copied the deck i didn't realize it wasn't really intended for throne i just thought it looked better than what i was running. I was running some mono red deny life gain use touch of force on a big creature (like a 4 or 5 drop) and give obliterate/flash fire double damage deck. It got me to diamond 1 though but was really bad against lots of stuff running around at that time and im really bad at making decks so I couldn't get out of diamond until using your deck here. I was wondering if there are any cards I could be running to improve your list like from the new set etc. I was thinking maybe eager deputy could be good but idk. I've seen the stone scar aggro running around but its a lot of shift stone to get the pieces for it for a deck that is more or less kind of the same but anyway thanks man love the deck :D

Wow... Happy to hear that. I'll upgrade the deck.
The volatile grenadin is added because of the specific AI interaction. It's probably better to run something else on the ladder.

Made day 2 of the ecq with your deck man lol playing tomorrow with it

Watermelon you genius. This is the mono fire I've been waiting for. I find your market baffling, so I would very much appreciate some explanation of those calls. I'm playing it with flame blast and the ever-present pheonix stone[tookout burst and conjuring] and loving it.
Watermelon Edited Eternal Version: 20.06.02
Thank you. Yeah I suck at market:D
My reasons:
Kaleb's intervention: a bore that can help you push damage if you get a bunch of warcries on something without overwhelm. Maybe I sould just play bore.
Runic burat: there are a lot of x/1units in the gauntlet (especially grenadins) and it sucks that you can't attack threw them and give them value trades. Feel free to take it out if you din't run into them but I like it a lot.
Edict: good against eagis units. Again you can replace it if you don't face too many of those.
Sear:running it instead of flame blast deals 3 for 2 and is kinda good at removal. Also can go face for 3. But blast is much much more flexible I agree.
Conjuring: Let's you finiah thegame and surprises the AI. Almost always decimated for another card. I like it as the damage pusher.
I son't have the pheonix stone unfortunately. I think your market is better than mine.
Now that you mentioned phoenix stone, you might want to tryout the blazing market with stone, edict, sear, 4/3 charger and relic/sentinel removal
