Information

It's been a while since I last uploaded a Crown of Possibilities deck - figured I would store my current build as a future reference in preparation for a new skill being added. Bond and Berserk were both fine additions to the pool, but negative overall due to diluting the chances of getting Echo and Destiny, the two best hits. Will Exalted be good, or bad? Only time will tell.

As for this deck... it's a midrange deck built around grinding out opponents by repeatedly drawing and redrawing high-value cards. We use Crown of Possibilities to stack up additional value on all of our units, alongside cards like Dark Return, Twinning Ritual, and Dread to draw more copies of those units.

The deck is built around Crown of Possibilities - we can win without it, but drawing it early (ideally in multiples) will power up the deck significantly. After that, it comes down to what sort of units we can spin up - if you get a bunch of Reckless units, you'll probably lose, while getting Echo on a Dread or Merchant is an easy win.

This deck is generally weak against aggro, since our unit curve starts at 3, which means they can often get under us before we can deploy enough blockers. Saber Tooth Prideleader helps a bit. Against Control and Midrange, it will often depend on who gets off to a better start - if we can get a Crown down early and start generating value, we'll be in good shape. If our opponent plays a Site and starts generating value, it can be hard for us to keep up. Dread's Charge helps against sites, but we don't have enough removal to deal with that many threats, especially Aegis units.

I think sandstone titan instead of saber, you lose lifesteal and your units can't fly but the butt is so big, and it stops you from getting punched over your head.

Any suggested updates for this list since the new release? I run a very similar list based on this (with the titans) and am looking for any changes. Thanks! :)

I've gone through versions with SST in it, and it's definitely a reasonable choice. It really depends on what sort of aggro you're facing (and how much flying is in the meta) - SST is much worse when Vanquish and Desecrate are everywhere, and the printing of Ice Bolt also mean that it isn't the brick wall to Skycrag it used to be. On the other hand, with the Vanquish nerf, it's probably worth consideration again. I do like the lifegain for stabilizing, but I suppose this deck already has Dread to gain life. Hmmm...

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to play much of this deck since release - Garden of Omens was everywhere for a while, which made playing relic-based decks sort of difficult. I should give it another shot though. There are some interesting new cards to run - Incarnus and the other Invoke cards seem worth consideration, although they may require reworking the power base. Ila & Mizo could also be fun. Daring Gryffyn also seems decent. May also be worth experimenting with the Edicts as part of the removal package. The addition of Exalted to the Crown pool is probably the biggest change though - allows for some really silly things in conjunction with Dread or Revenge units.
