Consistent Budget Primal Sling

Throne Deck By


Cost Curve




All the ideas:
- Sling of the Chi is obviously broken and will certainly be nerfed soon (I'm writing this on 11/21/2020). It's also really fun, so let's get the most out of it in a midrange deck.
- Sling forces us to have Primal and Fire Influence, but to consistently draw it we also need Calibrate, so that means we need Time Influence as well.
- Since it's a Primal deck, can we fit in Helio, the Skywinder for more draw power and consistency? Yes.
- If all of our Power cards are Primal, can we get away with running Rost, the Walking Glacier, a card that combos in many ways with Sling? Yes. (Note: if Rost dies while Sling is active, Sling's effect will trigger again immediately for the Shifted Rost!).
- It's coincidentally a budget deck, as it requires only 5 total Legendaries!

- It's really hard to find the perfect ratio of Power cards for this kind of FTP (Fire/Time/Primal) deck.
- Weak to enemy Units with Aegis and Relic removal. (Note: If you have two active copies of Sling and target a Unit with Aegis, it won't pop the Aegis first and then hit the Unit. Instead, it will hit the Aegis twice before the Aegis disappears).

My first comment for this deck was: what would you change in this deck to make it less budget-y ?
I didn't give it the credit it's due, and I'm here to apologize soundly for this.
I was begging for mercy at D3 since an entire week, even rising to D1 occasionally.
I took this deck after a 2-13 streak with the same deck that got me to Master last month, and my dirty thoughts were "hey, this can be better built here."
Long story short, I used this exact list and I passed from D3 to Masters into an afternoon. Oh, and I also took a nap in the middle.
Now, if you can please point me to the queue for having this Sling of the Chi nerfed...

PS for the opposing players: stop killing Rost, the Walking Glacier while Sling of the Chi is in play. Especially if there are multiple Slings. That will backfire you A LOT!!

Really hope they don't nerf sling. It's one of my favorite cards to have come out lately.

Direwolf always nerfs a whole bunch of meta/tournament decks every few months- and sometimes a lot sooner. It's a "when" question, not an "if" one.
