I created this deck from the same muse that inspired: https://eternalwarcry.com/decks/d/4m8pfvlNggo/gimme-gimme-gauntlet?view=list It was originally intended as an alteration of a Fire Justice Shadow variation of the 'Steal your opponents cards' idea utilizing Bartholo, Beguiling
, hence why the foundation of the deck includes Street Urchin, Vishni, Raniya, and Makkar's Stranger. When Vara, Death's Master was released I was finally provided with both a new card to focus the deck around, and a reason to confront the truth: Bartholo is a bad card.
Compared to my Xenan steal deck, this deck has a very different relationship to the market. The market contains all of the bombs a.k.a. the payoffs to a deck built around Vara, Death's Master. The core of the deck keeps you stable so you can pull out 1 of a few ways to lockdown control of the game and hasten a win.
Fun Card Interactions
- Putting Souleater Blade on Dichro before wiping their board of small dudes.
- Brel Solist Apostate + Vara meaning you actually see both sides of Brel's Relic Weapon ability, rather than just assuming that someone has to have buffed an existing relic weapon at some point.
- Jekk, Lone Gun + Vara will always give you the tribute trigger which gives you your choice of battleskills off an opponents unit to put on Vara.
