Flying Cows

By TheWit


Cost Curve




This is the deck I've been tweaking to hit masters this season

If Tavrod, Auric Broker pulls a destiny Inquisitor's Blade he gets flying before the opponent declares blockers. This is actually pretty easy to set up because of how destiny puts it in your top ten cards.

Ripknife Assassin activates Auric Interrogator and lets Impending Doom trade better with all of the 5-5 flyers around

Aegis is everywhere Vara's Favor helps to either get a Sabotage through or land removal.

Protect is just to expensive at 2 mana (ends up making tavrod basically cost 7 mana) and Sabotage can be played the turn before or with 6 mana.

Vanquish is in a much stronger position then Annihilate right now on ladder with the abundance of feln decks running no single faction units (Daraka, Queensguard is in some lists but Vanquish still kills it anyway).

Why you don't have the minimum of 25 powers?

Just played against this deck....a user named Warpath was playing it. Your idea is out there!
TheWit Edited Eternal Version: 1.29
Yeah I've been seeing variations on ladder a lot! Argenport midrange has a few top 8 finishes in the last couple tournaments which is awesome. BruisedByGod's Traitor's Blade has a really cool addition of Crownwatch Traitor which i found interesting. Although on ladder i think there's too many 5-5 flyers to be able to drop impending doom.

Running a similar deck and LOVING ripknife. Ripknife into bloodletter/unseen commando feels so great.
TheWit Edited Eternal Version: 1.29
Same! He can attack into and trade with anything. Also makes for a great blocker in a pinch. This card is performing really well. I think i like it more then Rakano Outlaw

So it is weird, right, because I feel like without Sabotage you want Protect, but I am not sure how you would make room. This is a sweet list and a sweet idea! I am definitely going to playtest and mess around with it and let you know what I come up with.
TheWit Edited Eternal Version: 1.29
I'll be interested to see what direction you go with it! I'm currently -4 Stonepowder Alchemist +2 Protect +2Sabotage (since my last edit)
So far seems to be working there's still enough units. Although i did sneak lethal with their gunshot's a few times so i'll miss that.

Happy Eternal Version: 1.29
Is there any reason for 3 only Crests?
TheWit Edited Eternal Version: 1.29
4 might be correct but I've found you almost always want activated power. Crest is obviously much better turn 1 and past 5

Edit: I'm now running 4 crests are you Happy?
