70-0 Gauntlet Masters Life Force Gold Farming

Gauntlet Deck By


Cost Curve




New life force card life speaker helps this deck out a lot. Also this deck can utilise the market nicely to fetch key cards such as katra. The combo is to have an auric interrogator with lifesteal and more than 4 attack with a katra on board. Then your auric interrogator will activate katra at the end of every turn. Before the only good way in xenan to give auric interrogator lifesteal was lethrai falchion and they are still 2 of these as insurance plus a Titan/blistersting wasp with falchion can win you the game anyway. If you draw your auric interrogators before you draw your life speakers don't worry because the inspire from lifespeaker is also activated via dark return and incidentally the market aswell. Since making the deck I have won 10 gauntlets in a row in master tier. Haven't played this in ranked yet but I used to play something similar in set 2 to reasonable success so I'm sure with a few tweaks accounting for the additional removal you may see on ladder this deck could also be semi-competitive.

I've been struggling with Gauntlet at masters but with this deck I completed my gauntlet boss quest on the first try. Thanks a lot!
Solhawk Eternal Version: 1.37
Got to Masters, no problem. Nice deck! Thanks!!!

You're a BEAST!
slyverine Eternal Version: 1.36
why you chose death strike over in cold blood?
SecondBlue Eternal Version: 1.36
It's a gauntlet deck where fast spells are great and also the A.I doesn't run many high value ICB targets.
FecalImpact Eternal Version: 1.36
any reason for no Xenan Fanatic, Cult Aspirant, or Ancient Bauble? i have been doing this same thing for a bit now, and the fanatic can just close out a grindy game with a solid lifesteal swing. and cult aspirant definitely gets gigantic quick. counting up the enemy's total power/cards in hand/open power/etc. and then swinging a HUGE overwhelm dude at them can really clear the opponent's board state up. even late game draw for him is pretty decent considering his power jump happens so fast. bauble is just consistent life gain, imo. i also have been maindecking 2 Lumen Defenders and they pretty much shut the ground game down as soon as one drops. still working on my deck/list in general, but those are my inputs.

Link to your deck?

i have, since that comment, stopped using Lumen Defenders, although they were pretty great. Cult Aspirant and Xenan Fanatic still close out games for me though, pretty regularly.

Is there any reasonable replacement for Ayan ?
Pikerbocker Edited Eternal Version: 1.36
I had to find alternates for Ayan and SST for my build. I added Impending Doom and Bloodcall Invoker in their place and have been doing surprisingly well with this set up. I also added a Shadowlands Tyrant in my market. These replacements make the deck a little slower I would assume, but just as reliable.

FallenChameleon Eternal Version: 1.36
I tested it and I think the list is fairly solid but ironically can lose to a fast aggro start even with all the lifegain thanks to warcry + charge units. I think we should run some amount of Suffocate, Annihilate and Banish. The deck feels strong enough to grind out slower decks so we might not need deathstrike at all. Thanks was my feeling when I played it, slower decks didn't have a chance but aggro can put too much pressure with early units and removal for our theurges
CFacto Eternal Version: 1.36
After failing several times with a mono Shadow deck, I completed the Big Game Hunter challenge first time with this deck. Thanks for posting it!
(I used naptime's suggested edits - the extra SST and Banishes seemed strong, and SSF won the final boss battle for me).
leobanz Eternal Version: 1.36
Cool deck. Gonna give this a try for Gauntlet Grinding. How about Impending Doom? If you get Lifesteal on it, it's gonna tick up Katra like the Interrogator would. I don't have Ayan yet, so I'll see how this runs.
Devaco Eternal Version: 1.36
that actually works great, lt's part of the xenan list l run as well which focuses as much synergy around the lifespeaker as possible
leobanz Eternal Version: 1.36
Nice. I'm just tweaking it now since I think Ayan is really hard to replace.
Devaco Eternal Version: 1.36
yeah l don't have ayan yet myself and lt sucks but to be honest he'll be tough to fit into my list
SecondBlue Eternal Version: 1.36
You know I hadn't considered that! Awesome suggestion will try it out
Devaco Eternal Version: 1.36
looks good, got a similar list myself. loaded down with too much crap l think. and it's even got Amaran camels because l've got an addiction to camels :) so lt's likely not as consistent due to power screw but when lt works . it's bonkers. anyways Great work man. you even managed to get the notorious kc bandit to comment :o that's gotta be saying something kudos.
Tarkatta Eternal Version: 1.36
0 out of 4 tries. never passed the 3rd game in any run. Maybe the AI hates me...
naptime Edited Eternal Version: 1.36
Deck doesn't have enough answers for the Gauntlet deck "Power of Fire". If they play a Groundbreaker, the entire gameplan is halted until you can deal with it, and because it's a mono-fire aggro deck, you might not have the time.

Suggested changes: -2 Lunar Magus, -2 Lethrai Falchion. +3 Banish. Move 4th SST to main deck, replace with Striking Snake Formation in Market.
SecondBlue Eternal Version: 1.36
Sounds good :)
Porkchop Eternal Version: 1.36
Yeah that decks is destroying my latest gauntlet deck. Pretty sure they buffed it recently, because it never was a threat before. Now it nut draws all the time and drops groundbreaker back to back late game.
naptime Edited Eternal Version: 1.36
It definitely seems overly strong. The loss against that deck that led to my comment and changes was T4 Groundbreaker, T5 Jekk Hunted Fugitive, T6 Flamestoker.
Devaco Edited Eternal Version: 1.36
wrong comment :x

bassoonbuffoon Eternal Version: 1.36
someone give this list to the russians
nois Eternal Version: 1.36
Why russians??
bassoonbuffoon Eternal Version: 1.36
oh it was just a joke about the russian eternal economy getting nerfed since this deck is so good at farming gold
