Skycrag Aggro

Standard Deck By
Eternal Titans


Cost Curve




My take on set 6 Skycrag Aggro, that I used to get to masters this season.

Since quite a few people ask me for budget options to replace Vadius, you can either play Censari Dervish or play Ixtun Merchants with Obliterate, Mindfire, Factory Quota, Warhelm and Shugo Standard in the market. I'm not entirely sure which one of the two options is better.

SinthoraS Eternal Version: 1.46.3
Hi, i am missing Shoguns Scepter, what would be a good replacement or is it a keystone of the deck ?
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.3
It's the least important card in the deck, the same substitutions that work for Vadius can also replace the Scepter.
Aeor Eternal Version: 1.46.3
Am having a bit of a hard time against combo decks any tip ?
Also how aggressive should i mulligan/what am i looking for in an opening hand ideally
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.3
To give tips against combo decks I need to know which ones since they all play differently. As for the mulligan you want to hard mull for a 1 drop and something to play on turn 2, be it a 2 drop or another 1 drop.
Aeor Edited Eternal Version: 1.46.3
The most memorable one for me has to be the waystone one , i lost pretty quickly without knowing how , the second one is the razorquill one.
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.3
The only way to win against Diogo Combo is pressuring early and maybe removing their ramp units. Against the Razorquill combo you can apply pressure and keep a torch or Ice Bolt to remove one of their combo pieces when they plan to go off.
AlcideBava Eternal Version: 1.46.3
Purchased the ice bolts and vadius for this, I like it so far. Just limited testing, but 3 and 1 at the moment. Thanks for sharing!
Aeor Eternal Version: 1.46.3
Can replacing Vadius for an eclipse dragon be acceptable if not what is a budget alternative for it ?
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.3
Eclipse Dragon costs too much for the deck. With only 25 power you don't get to 5 power consistently. I added a section with replacements for Vadius.
Nishava Edited Eternal Version: 1.46.2
Ice Bolt is fantastic and I've liked Skycrag aggro so far with the new set. I haven't tested with Impatient Pyromage that much, how's it working for you? Do you rate him above Rakano Outlaw and Dusk Raider or is either of them better. Also no Censari Dervish?
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.2
Impatient Pyromage is better than both outlaw and raider, if you run enough 1 cost cards. I want to try derwish at some point, maybe over vadius. Did you try Derwish yet?
Nishava Edited Eternal Version: 1.46.2
I do in fact run many 1-drops as I don't run any 2-drops besides Champion (Oni Patrol is kind of a 2-drop lol). I didn't test him much because I thought he would get walled a lot by other 2-drops like Instigator but I will test some more eventually. Dervish was my go to upgrade for Skycrag other than Ice bolt and it's been really strong so far in my experience. She threatens a lot of damage with both charge and the exhaust ability has won me many games when the opponent tries to stabilize.
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.2
I like the Derwish idea, will test it.
phlash05 Eternal Version: 1.46.1
I was having an identity crisis. I was mid d2 Before the patch. Got knocked down to 0/100 in d3. I built this list, and went from 0/100 d3 to masters with only 2 losses. One loss to Hooru and the other to a BW katra list.

Made an account to thank you for this list and to say Ice bolt is incredible
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.1
Thank you, I'm glad you enjoy it and had success with it.
Lawgiver Eternal Version: 1.46.1
So offensive deck. Go 16-1 to reach masters from D2
aimlessPolymath Eternal Version: 1.46.1
What's the Stonescar matchup feel like to you?
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.1
It's in Skycrags favor. You want to get on the board early and then use your superior removal to stay ahead on board. Just make sure to use Ice Bolt only on the relevant targets such as Vara, big Champions or Maidens.
ReflectingMyDescent Eternal Version: 1.46.1
Mr. Delfin never disappoints! Glad aggro is back (kind of) and you're covering my favourite archetype here
Ninjacan Eternal Version: 1.46.1
no market?
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.1
I only want that many 3 drops and compared to Scepter and Vadius the Merchants are too slow.
RumblerX Eternal Version: 1.46.1
Ice Bolt is fantastic in this deck.
AhornDelfin Eternal Version: 1.46.1
Ice Bolt is one the way to become my favorite new card.
josh37 Eternal Version: 1.46.3
Sooo good! a two drop in primal that pretty much deals with anything? oh and it's fast? 4 please
