Edit 8/6/2018: Deck has still been playing very very well, I've been winning at least 75% it feels like lately. Easily my best performing deck. Still fiddling a little bit with the market, I feel there are too many games where there aren't things I want to get from it, so I'm trying to figure out the best configuration.
Edit 8/1/2018: The words below come from the original primer before FOA came out. Busy making changes to this list, but it's been performing very very well lately.
This is the first time I'm posting a deck here, but I've had such a good day today I figured to post it here for some input and sharing because I think this deck is legitimately great and I don't see anyone else play a similar version. Just went through a 12-2 stretch, bringing me from the bottom of diamond 3 to near the top of diamond 2. I've had lots of success with this deck but never as good as I have been today.
I can't remember who I got the idea from, I can find the deck soon, but it's based off of their Argenport Sacrifice deck, adapted to my collection, and built up more over time. This deck is extremely resilient to control decks, but can also go underneath them and play the aggro game. It can play the very long game against other midrange decks, and is quite strong against non nut draws on aggro decks as well due to having a lot of incidental life gain, willingness to trade, and Harsh Rule
. Opposing sweepers do very little against this because almost every card leaves advantage when it dies.
is easily the best card in this deck, allowing tons of damage and life gain, as well plenty of value with all of my sacrifice outlets. Dizo, Cabal Chairman
is fantastic in this deck, and Alchemist also clears the way for Dizo to hit using Cabal Extortion Scheme
by knocking off face Aegis. I'm a super big fan of Umbren Reaper
as well. That card wasn't in the original list, but it's won me some games straight up by itself.
Anyone have any recommendations? I've been tuning and I'm super happy with this. Willing to answer any questions as well!
Edit: shouts to Eyestrained for the original deck, that I've adapted and made changes to, but they are the first person I took this from. The deck is here: Argenport Snacks
Edit 2: Trying a third Reaper over the 2nd Makto for a little, Reaper just feels so powerful in here.
Edit 3: Just hit masters, I've had a really really good week with this deck. I highly recommend!
Edit 4 (5/13): Just went on a 10-0 run through Diamond 1 to get Masters
so, uh, this deck is good right now. just went on a 10-0 run in Diamond 1 to go straight to Masters. same list.
