New player here. is this control deck still playable against the current meta in ranked if i wanted to climb to diamond at least ? Thanks in advance.

Hi there,
Unfortunately, control took a massive hit with this new metagame and is far worse nowadays. I would not recommend this deck for climbing. You'll have much better luck taking a budget aggro deck, should even make it to masters if you play tight.
Cheers,

I think right now, Vanquish is a better card in Market than Eilyn's Choice I'm not seeing a whole lot of spells that need to be countered as the meta has shifted towards creature decks. It costs 1 less and hits all the same units. In games where you're stuck on 5/6, the cost has made the difference. If you don't want to change to Smuggler, I put Permafrost in place of Eilyn's, and moved that mainboard to a vanquish.

Hi there, glad to hear that you've been experimenting with the deck! I spent a long time perfecting this list, and after trying out a lot of different options I firmly believe that Eilyn's Choice is the best card for this market slot.
One of the most useful things to have in market cards is niche useability. Although Vanquish kills all the same units as Eilyn's Choice, it's much worse when you're facing down the lethal Cykalis, the Burning Sand that's about to kill you (played in Praxis Pledge, a tier 1 deck atm). It's also worse against Vicious Highwayman, Eclipse Dragon, Ghodan, Undefeated, as well as other less-played units. Secondly, it gives us a much-needed answer to cards like Grasping at Shadows, Flame Blast, Obliterate, Maul, and more. Although the extra power cost is certainly relevant, the added utility more than makes up for it. The fact that you can combo Eilyn's Choice with Wisdom of the Elders and Svetya's Sanctum makes it even better.
As for Permafrost vs Vanquish in the maindeck, I'm completely convinced that Permafrost is miles better. Not only does it cost 50% less, it also answers early-game threats like Teacher of Humility, Argenport Instigator, Blackhall Warleader, etc... while answering larger threats like Vara, Vengeance Seeker and Champion of Chaos almost as well. It even has added utility against cards like Rost, the Walking Glacier and Inquisitor Makto. I'm playing 2 copies of Pristine Light at the moment because I think it's simply a better version of Vanquish, and I would be wary of overloading on this kind of removal that only kills large units, as the most threatening units tend to be the 2-3 drops that'll hit you for 6-12 damage over the course of the game, not the big slow durdly vara.
Hope my explanation made sense!

Yesterday i dropped from d2 to d3 five times. Today, I took this list, swapped 2 of the maindeck svetyas sanctums for 2 copies of korovyat palace and went 18-2 all the way to masters. Great deck !

Svetya Sanctum still good in ranked post-nerfed?
Erik9099 Eternal Version: 1.46.7
I mean, I did get 2nd place with the card. It definitely took a hit, but given how busted it was pre-nerf I think it's definitely still good enough post-nerf.
