This deck has everything you want in gauntlet: Lifegain-removal-card draw-deadly units-insane late game-...
is a bit awkward and might be replaced soon. Rest of the mandrakes are super good, especially Venomous Nightshade
seems very fragile on 2. I'd rather just play Send an Agent
Edit: Goliath Flytrap
is good enough. Nice stats + plunder+ free ultimate +silence is well worth the cost. Removed Mask of Torment
and replaced it with Ayan, the Abductor
. gaining life to trigger stuff turned out to be harder than it seemed initially, and Mask of Torment
feels like a win-more card in this deck.
Edit 2: Some extra changes thanks to the comment by 241ackerman.
Edit 3: guys check this deck by boxer as well, seems very good: [Rank 1] Houseplant Beatdown*
This one is more reliant on drawing The Merriest Mandrake
but goes much more smoothly
