I really enjoy playing control lately but i wanted to spice it up a little and i got the idea to try Realign the Stars
in a temporal deck and it was unique and fun enough so i decided to share it. There're some players who like running a toolbox in their deck and while they can be useful, usually they're really clunky or not worth running, but a slow control deck like temporal gets a lot from the amplify toolbox
. Now you might have the question: "Is it worth it to run Realign the Stars in the first place?"
And i'd say Yes, in expedition
i think so because of the following reasons: 1. sketches and runes
; all the sketches and runes work really slowly and while i'm not impressed by any of them originally, in a slow grindy deck like temporal they're feeling welcomed. Realign doesn't specify non-power cards so you can totally use it to just grab a power from your deck if needed, for example you really need to stun or spin a unit for a turn while hitting your power? Grab Rune of Relocation
or Rune of Trickery
to stall and keep going!
2. versatility and optionality
; like i just mentioned grabing power is useful and needed in some situations, the big selling point are the amplify spells, especially searching Gavel's Insight
, From the Heavens
or Onoris Roa
can save your life and while i'm not advocating to run them in a control deck initially because they're rough to justify on their own, searchable with realign makes them significantly better. 3. additional finisher
; now you might say "Isn't Temporal Distortion
, Channel the Tempest
and The Speaking Circle
enough late game to win a game?", usually yes but Davia, Azurebreaker
made a big impact in how this deck can play into the board and specifically a well timed Greatblade
or Onoris Roa
in combination with her can totally seal the deal for you and lets you attack your opponent from a different angle then just burning them down with Channel or waiting for Circle to do it's thing.
As a heads up, this deck is hard to pilot because you have a lot of playlines you can do with this deck and especially if you're not used to control your first couple games can be rough. Don't go down to 6 just because you miss one influence, the only real important one is double primal to cast Wisdom of the Elders
, if you got that you're fine. Try to have atleast one interaction and draw card in your starting hand.
And just as an end note, if you don't like the distribution of cards in this deck feel free to change them as you like, it was rough to fit in the toolbox so a lot of 2 offs ended up in this deck which would be normally 3 or 4 offs. If you're still interested in a temporal list that doesn't use the amplify toolbox i can post that too, and that's already it, i'll answer questions asap as always, your kira :))
