Incremental post-FoX improvement of an old Grenadin list. Edict of Shavka
replaced Into the Furnace
, making the deck stronger against Justice and Primal match-ups (specifically the Aegis units and the sites), but weaker against Time and Shadow match-ups (e.g. Kairos decks are pretty annoying to face).
Emblem of Shavka
is mostly anti-flood protection and doesn't really influence the deck's behavior, in my experience.
You can easily reach top 500 Masters with this deck in the current meta with a bit of grinding, and reach top 200 Masters if you can learn to read your opponents well enough.
27/11/19: After the nerf, Edict of Shavka
is no longer a maindeckable card. It might still be a reasonable market option, but that remains to be seen.
05/12/19: The Torch
is dead, long live Breath of Voprex
26/01/20: The meta is currently quite unfriendly to the list, but I will probably be updating it anyway after the new set drops.
18/02/20: So, a lot has changed about the list.
Merchants were replaced with Blazing Salvo
, and the market was updated to reflect the change. Torch
returns in the form of Sear
, and Rally
was replaced by Fire Conjuring
, which is a straight-up upgrade.
The deck doesn't really perform well in the current meta, since there are far better aggro options than mono-Fire or Grenadin tribal.
