YurickYu Eternal Version: 1.46.E
My league this month is over. I end 35-5 (make 10-0 this Week). You can put the cards you get this week and i help you tomorrow.
GumbyMan Eternal Version: 1.46.E
Posted! The remainder of the new cards from the two new packs did not bring much value to this deck.
YurickYu Eternal Version: 1.46.E
I am not a big fan of Isolate. Darkweave Enchantress is fun. Put it instead of Kosul Recruit. Retribution is great. Eviscerate is ok. Reinforcements i don't like so much in limited. I think the best to do is: + Enchantress + Retribution + Eviscarate - Kosul Recruit - Training Ground - Devour.
GumbyMan Eternal Version: 1.46.F
Done! It's a wrap! Today, I got beat down from D2 to D3 in ranked... ugh... Gotta get to Master soon so that I can play League!
YurickYu Eternal Version: 1.46.F
Today i go to D1 to D2 now return to D1. Looks like will be hard get master again . . .
GumbyMan Eternal Version: 1.46.F
21-19 was my final. I had power issues in about a third of my games, including my wins. A lot of times I needed 2 of one faction and got it too late to matter.
YurickYu Eternal Version: 1.46.F
The lack of double power is really bad. I normally like use 3 double influence power minimum. But next month you will get a best result.
GumbyMan Eternal Version: 1.46.F
I sent you a message on Discord, FYI.
GumbyMan Eternal Version: 1.46.F
I won every game where I dropped Grinva. But, getting there was a challenge. I may try to play earlier next month, too. Thanks!
GumbyMan Edited Eternal Version: 1.46.E
Hey man! Good job on that 35-5 ratio---very impressive! I reviewed the new cards yesterday. It appears that five cards in the new packs. I will post the new batch later! I am so strapped for time this week. I hope to find the time to get to Ranked Masters (Currently D2) and complete my 40 league games this May... :( Thanks for your help!

Thanks YurickYu! So, what is the “recipe” that you used to make this deck?
YurickYu Eternal Version: 1.46.C
My strategy to make a sealed deck:

1) 6 prints of your deck (Fire, Time, Justice, Primal, Shadow and Multi-None-Power).
2) Remove all trash cards.
3) See all non-trash cards and remove 2 faction.
4) See if is better to make 3 faction, 2 faction splash or mono faction splash.
5) After i choose the faction combination i go to the spells and start removing spells until i have beetween 3 and 7.
6) After choosing the spells i go to attachment and choose to have beetween 0-3.
7) After choosing the spells and attachment i go to site (if any), then the units.
8) After all non-power cards have chosen i go to the powers and i normally like 18 powers. Can be 1 Seek Power + 18 or 2 Seek Power + 17 (depend on the number of high cost units.

OBS 1: Rules 5 to 7 can be different if you need a special type of deck.
OBS 2: Note the number of double influence you have. Example: 3 cards in your deck need 2 S and 2 cards need 2 T. Also see the number of cards from each faction to help your mana base.

For the units:
1-2: 4-6
1-2-3: 8-10
1-2-3-4: 11-13
1-2-3-4-5: 14-16
1-2-3-4-5-6+: 18-19

For Attachment: 1-3 with max. 1 that cost 6 or more.

For Spells: Min. 1 or 2 buff, Min. 3 removal. Max. 1 that cost 6 or more.
YurickYu Eternal Version: 1.46.C

1) With your list:
I start with Fire. Useless and/or Weak:
Firemane Cub
Hidden Shiv
Urn of Choking Embers
Swift Stranger (not enough Strangers)

2) Then Primal:
Reinforced Towershield
Yeti Snowchucker
Fledgling Avisaur
Foothills Alpha
Jotun Warrior
Iceknucle Jotun

In this part i think your current primal aren't enough to play Primal.

Then i go to the other 3 factions and see they are good and better than your Fire.

Now the Deck:

3) Spells:

Useless or weak:
Be Gone
Harbinger's Bite
Svetya's Bravery
Lost Scroll
Gathering Light
Xenan Augury
Spirit Drain
Siraf' Choice

Then i keep the 6 remaining.

4) Attachments:

Useless or weak:
Jack's Knife
Crownwatch Longsword (i know some players like it)
Iron Hook
Shepherd''s Horn
Eternity Core
Sanguine Sword
Spiked Buckler
Umbral Edge (good in ramp deck)
Aerialist's Khopesh (you have enough flying in your deck)

Playable card, but cut due enough 6+ cost units:
Oathkeeper's Hammer
Improvised Unit

5) Units:

Useless or Weak:

Cost 2 or lower:
Fire Strangers
Ironfist Faithful (have enough Flying)
Oni Samurai
Sanctuary Prist
Ephemeral Wisp (good in ramp or sacrifice deck)
Sporefolk (good in reanimator deck)
Trail Runner

Playable, but cut due enough cards in that cost:
Workshop Tinker

Cost 3:

Useless or Weak:
Loyal Watching
Miner's Canary
Replicator Engine (good if you have 4 copies)
Treasury Guard
Umbren Deathweaver (good in self-mill deck)

Playable, but cut due enough cards in that cost:
Copperhall Shieldman
Guard Dog

Cost 4:

Useless or Weak:
Champion of Vengeance (Worst Champion. Bad even in 2 faction)
Consuming Greed (not enough relics)
Valkyrie Militant (not enough weapons)

Playable, but cut due enough cards in that cost:
Copperhall Recruiter
Towertrop Patrol (have enough flying units)

Cost 5:

Useless or Weak:

Ancient Excavator (not enough relics)
Umbren Thirster (not enough lifesteal)

Playable, but cut due enough cards in that cost:

Broken Wing Brawler (have enough flying)
Direwood Prowler (is not for this deck)

Cost 6 or more:

Useless or Weak:

Voyaging Lumen (not enough lifesteal)

Playable, but cut due enough cards in that cost:
Dormant Sentinel (have enough TT units in your deck)
GumbyMan Edited Eternal Version: 1.46.C
Thanks for your feedback! Just curious about leaving out a few cards. What is your reasoning for leaving out Sandcrawler, Dormant Sentinel, Xenan Augury, Lost Scroll, Sanguine Sword, and Iron Hook and leaving in Awakened Sentinel?
YurickYu Eternal Version: 1.46.C
Sandcrawler: Good card, but you have enough 3 cost units.
Dormant Sentinel: Playable, but you have enough 6+ cost units and he is TT.
Xenan Augury: Bad in early games and you already have Devour. Remember to chump block and sacrifice the unit for Devour. Also Devour can stop lifesteal from the opp too (if you block and sacrifice).
Lost Scroll: Good in ramp deck, but your deck is not ramp.
Sanguine Sword: Playable in decks with more units to sacrifice because if you don't sacrifice he will be bad.
Iron Hook: Ok card, but you have better removals.

Awakened Sentinel: Warp, Endurance and a good body. I really like use it in limited.
GumbyMan Eternal Version: 1.46.C
Ok, I see your logic now. Thanks! :D So, do I wait five days to get two more packs for this deck, or do you think it's strong enough to play now?
YurickYu Eternal Version: 1.46.C
I think is better wait the 5 days for 2 more packs.
