Deck Description
Tempo-Aggro deck that focus on weapon synergy.

Deck Design
- 28 Units with focus at 2 slot (12 Gunslingers, 12 Onis, 4 Unseen)
- 10 Weapons
- 6 "Removal"
- 4 Protection
- 26 Power Cards

Game Plan
Get early drops on the board and chain weapon plays into neutral or plus on cards in hand.
Core card in deck is Oni Quartermaster. Having this on board can close game quite fast.

Cards & Reasoning
- Steady Marshal: Aggressive drop with nice stats, draw cards mechanism later on, buffer for other cards in deck.
- Ghostblade Outcast: Early drop with possibility to become a weapon later on.
- Crackshot Fugitive: Grows tall quite fast, gunslinger synergy. Gets buff from weapon she carry, but i wouldn't suggest to play more then 1 weapon on her.
- Oni Forgemaster: Source of neutral to profit card advantage, trades one-to-one with any weapon/spell played on her.
- Acclaimed Artisan: Oni lord as well as a weapon later on.
- Oni Quartermaster: One of the main reasons to play so heavy on weapons strategy, the way you can generate card advantage is insane if it sticks to board.

- Svetya's Bravery: Great defence tool, coz you need to protect your important pieces.
- Retribution: New addition from set 6, Rebuke when we want to push for damage and there is nasty blocker or Deathstrike when we pushed for damage and want to stay alive on a back swing.

Deck full on synergy and way for aggressive deck to get value out of nowhere. You can go greedy but you can be punished hard for that play. Deck can and will win even without Oni Quartermaster due to high pressure you apply on opponent.

Overall ~50% winrate in casual during testing. (31-30)
I am pretty happy with results i got for so low on Shiftstones deck.

Tips & Tricks
- Redraw. You want to have your early drops and 2-3 sigils, redraw until you have one and/or two drops. Redraw if you have more then 3 sigils.
- Your early drops can draw you cards later. So yes you can chain turns in sequence where you get most value.
By playing Steady Marshal on turn 1, Axe Sharpener on turn 2 and Oni Quartermaster on turn 3 you can get 2-5 cards on turn 4 and buff your team quite well. Any of Steady Marshal or First-Shot Rioter will result in 2 cards drawn and descent bodies on the battlefield, Crackshot Fugitive or Whirling Duo will result in one card drawn.
- Don't block. Unless you are sure that there will be no combat tricks or removal.

Hexxen Eternal Version: 1.44
If you get Milos, Unwavering Idealist during promo period you can replace Whirling Duo with it. This will work other way but will be explosive if you manage to go off.
