Information

After reaching Masters each season, I usually post the deck I used to get me in, and occasionally an additional deck that got me into the higher ranks. It's been quite a while since I made one of these deck posts, and since I have been enjoying this deck quite a bit, I decided to make a write up for it.

It is a "newer" version of the eccentric officer OTK combo deck, that combined Kairos and First Flame to do massive amounts of damage in one turn. A deck that holds a special place in my heart, since it got me qualified for the Worlds Tournament coming up this February. I would certainly not bring the new version to a serious tournament, but it's good enough to currently have me placed at Rank 19.

The link above has a fair bit of info on how the combo functions and the concepts behind the deck design as a whole. Since a fair number of important cards have been nerfed from that original version, there needed to be some different considerations made to take full advantage of the Officer potential. The deck likely has a fair bit of room for adjustments and improvements, but is at a good place with the current list, with turns flowing well and good consistency. It's a bit slower (~1 turn average), and much less resilient to hate.

Edit:
Made a few changes to the deck. Notable addition being the Warning Shot. I'm not sure why I didn't consider it right away. It has a few very favorable interactions that have been working great so far.
- 0 drop Kairos and First Flames are good
- An 11 drop warning shot is still a power
- If you've already played a Spiny Grenadin, warning shot will generate a power by pinging your own unit. (I was surprised how often this comes up) and also can trigger tribute for 0

I also realize that some of the differences between the old officer deck and this one are not the most intuitive. While resilience to hate has gone down substantially in this version, there are some benefits over the previous too.
- You can cast kairos in this version relatively easily
- You can play around spell counters, due to press-gang in the market
- This version produces much better blockers, and due to that has a much better game against aggressive decks.

Deck also made it to Rank 10

I will be adjusting the list as I change it so you all can follow along.
Post a comment if you have a question and I would be happy to answer it.
