A fairly budget friendly deck. I don't have much of a collection and don't spend anything. I only really started playing in december. This is my attempt at an aggro token go wide type strategy, playing lots of little guys with Rally
and those kinds of effects.
I'd seen some parts of the deck in draft and it looked to me that there was enough support to make this kind of deck, and it didn't need much for me to craft. I started w no legends at first, but I opened some Scraptank
s and Bandit Queen
s, and I enjoyed the deck enough to craft the rest.
The mana base is mostly what lands I have, and whatever I could squeeze in with the goal of casting everything, and being able to work with what comes in depleted and hopefully hitting at least 5 for the Scraptank
s and to play Cabal Repeater
guy and activate him on the same turn.
To make it even more budget friendly you can take out Bandit Queen
and replace with Stonescar Outfitter
And replace Scraptank
with Outlaw Ringleader
Or try Unkindness
The main thing being any card that makes more guys then the usual rate of one guy per card. Manufacture
is clunky and almost never gets warped, and Unkindness
is fantastic when it works, but I've had so many games where I was counting on it and it was just a blank card from turn 2 until I died, so I gave up on it entirely.
Hope someone else enjoys the list, since most of my decks are just the starters and other theme decks with whatever good cards I've opened this is basically one of my better performing lists, even tho it's not tier 1 or anything.
3/13/20 - somehow FINALLY noticed Strange Burglar
is a card, in Eternal that exists, somehow I went weeks playing with the new set and cards and took that entire time to notice there was a rare card that looks like it was made specifically to go into this deck. So I crafted and added that in about as fast as I have ever done anything in this game, started out trying +3 Strange Burglar
and -1Barbarian Camp
, and -1Torrent of Spiders
After I get a lot of games in with this change I can decide what I want to do with these numbers more exactly, I can imagine running 4 Strange Burglar
for sure, but I want to get a feel for how to best fit them in.
I am always trying to think of ways to fit more relics in for Rat Cage
, so even shaving one doesn't feel great. Scraptank
costs a ton at 5, and it feels real bad to open a hand with multiples, but I am also usually pretty happy everytime I hit 5 and play one, although never as happy as when the game is already over or essentially over before then.
And Torrent of Spiders
often has times where it is by far the best card in the deck or one of the ones I most badly need to topdeck, but it is another one where drawing multiples in the opener is a real bummer, and it is pretty rare to play it on curve.
Sometimes you look at your hand and just know that cashing it in for a single body is the right play just to have one more guy to juice with Rally
or Bandit Queen
or whatever, but that is not the usual case, so it is def more of a lategame card then its 3 cc would suggest.
So shaving those to cram in some Strange Burglar
all made sense for now, eventually I will figure out what I want to do with it going forward, I will update when I get there.
Thanks to everyone who cares enough to read all the way through my token homebrew rambles.
ps I can't be the only one sad that Torrent of Spiders
tokens aren't 1/2s that have reach can i? and also i did the edits and tried to card tag every card this time
is a HERO not a stranger!
