Auralian Scream

Throne Deck By


Cost Curve




With Highwayman getting nerfed, I wanted to try and make a different sort of Scream deck work. Started with Haunted Highway in 2019 and ended up with what you see here. It’s not as explosive as Haunted Highway, but Equivocate and Vara's Choice make it more evasive, and the additions of Amaran Stinger and (especially) Teacher of Humility give it more staying power.

Possible areas of improvement:
—Power base. Highway had an easier time with banners because of Grenadin Drone. This version does struggle to get its 2s and 3s out on time.
—Maybe some other options at 4? Lethrai Soothsayer has been underwhelming and Dread has been more useful as Pledge than as an actual card. Dread in particular seemed like it would be a useful Scream target, but there’s almost always something else in the void you’d rather get.
—Market could maybe use some work. The deck basically folds on the spot to Adjudicator's Gavel as it is, and Rindra, the Duskblade has been meh unless there’s a Dusk Raider on the board. I really wish I could go with some variety of Time merchant, but market access to Haunting Scream and Dark Return seems mandatory and I REALLY don’t want to cut them from the main to run a smuggler.

+1 Dark Return and Cykalis, the Burning Sand; -1 Vara's Choice and Lethrai Soothsayer. The former two are among the better cards in the deck and we want full sets of them. Soothsayer was not useful, and we have plenty of other removal/disruption.
Secret Passage in the market instead of Rindra's Choice. I never once got the Choice; again, the main deck has plenty of ways to deal with units. Passage is occasionally very useful for sneaking a unit in for infiltrate or lethal, and can also be a sac outlet for Madness.
-2 Permafrost; +2 Suffocate. Perma is kind of a non-bo with Vara, and Suffocate fills the role of super cheap removal better.
