Tier 0 Argenport Control

By MrNoTimeMan MrNoTimeMan+1008

This is the best deck in the game. No bad matchups. Use sabotages to protect your tavrod or your sword and win. Shoutout to Buckwheat for starting the argenport control train. He takes all the credit. Shout out to Batteriez for deciding to cut valkyrie enforcer.

While I really enjoy this deck,I have also had many games with
mana problems that have caused me to lose.
It always seems like I only have a depleted power base.
I don't know if I just should use power cards instead of some of the banners or crests.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Remove banners for sigils

This deck runs like no units, so they'll enter tapped 95% of the time. Removing them for sigils will allow the seats to enter untapped.

The deck only needs 2 of each color, so there is real need for this much fixing.

Game 2, mana screwed again. Lol.
I lost on opponents turn 8, with 5 mana, 3 of which didn't come until turns 5,6,7.......
I'm not entirely sure it's the deck though. I experience a high volume of 2-sigil games.... :\
Chad Edited Eternal Version: 1.27
(Full disclosure, I've only played this deck once. Immediately prior to this comment.)
-First draw, then redraw was 1 then 2 mana.
-Never drew another sigil
-Conceded turn four with 5 life because opponent played oni ronin, champion of glory, then unseen commando.

I reeeeaaly hope it works better moving forward. Lol
YGAlexander Eternal Version: 1.27
LOL. There is no consistent deck in this game.
bassoonbuffoon Eternal Version: 1.27
Played like 5 games on ladder with this deck and I like it a lot! How does this deck beat feln control though? yeah they struggle with sotsk once you get it out but they've probably gone off w champions by then if it hasnt already been sabotaged. how would you change the deck if youre seeing lots of feln control?
lanhir Eternal Version: 1.27
I am losing often with this deck. There are alot Armory/Icaria-Style Decks around. Pretty hard to win against with this Deck.
Archivist Eternal Version: 1.27
This deck is bonkers good! Highly suggested in the current meta.
konan Eternal Version: 1.27
I went 9:4 to hit masters. Once I got power screwed, one loss to grenadin gearcrunsher, and 2 losses were to Icaria Blue (which seems a pretty tough MU, because of all the aegis and having better draw). I can still definitely recommend it, feels really strong, especially against aggro and midrange.
FranticLight Eternal Version: 1.27
I am playing Armory myself and won nearly every game against Argenport. But this seems to be a very good, but nearly the only counter.
DrKitten Eternal Version: 1.27
This deck is monstrously fun--thanks for posting! :)
toughluck Eternal Version: 1.27
Thanks for the deck! It feels so strong
Overkill9000 Eternal Version: 1.27
I went 45-3 with this deck

Thanks for sharing !
Question to the author or anyone who tried it - can this deck handle aggro good enough ?
Konatsu Eternal Version: 1.27
This deck is very solid against aggro. It's actually worse against greedy control decks or control counter decks like Armory.
Nowind Eternal Version: 1.27
Seems really bad to run both 4x Sabo, and 4x Setback, but eh since I like Argenport I'll give it a shot.
Nowind Eternal Version: 1.27
Ya it's pretty garbo.
kaveth Eternal Version: 1.27
This deck lost to Manacles Mill (I was piloting the mill deck..) How can this be tier 0?
Cookie84 Eternal Version: 1.27
its hard to go against manacles mill if they had it down you will really suffer with your tav
Konatsu Eternal Version: 1.27
Maybe there's no mill jank in master and therefore MNTM was able to play it to number 1.
Ez3kie1 Eternal Version: 1.27
Tier 0 doesn't mean it never loses

Hey, I don't have any sword, how important are the second and the third copy? what if I play 1 vara instead of 1 sword with tavrod as a target, is that bad? thanks, nice deck btw
Cobalt_95 Eternal Version: 1.27
This deck is so good I got banned for supposed cheating. DWD pls
Cookie84 Eternal Version: 1.27
whats the reason you got banned?
Cobalt_95 Eternal Version: 1.27
I was joking about how good the deck was, I wasn't actually banned lmao
imrathion Eternal Version: 1.27
Im not sure if the mana is right... im only 50% due to mana screw over 10 games
Nefariousdolly Eternal Version: 1.27
Hmmm, I gave this deck a try. perhaps it is just not my style. Went 3 wins, 8 losses. My last match was against a deck very similar to one of my manacle/solitude decks :-/. But what do I know. I am straight up L00nZ :-D
ArcOfTheConclave Edited Eternal Version: 1.27
No copperhall porters?
Edit, Also no Gift?
Arkimedes Eternal Version: 1.27
Hey! Is this deck really worth or it's just a meme "tier 0" deck? I need 2 Sky King Sword to make it, and I'll dust about 32 non-played rare cards to create them. I just want to know if it's worth. Ty :)
werdna Edited Eternal Version: 1.27
I went 15-2 with it and pushed into masters after being stuck in diamond with tavrod armory for days.

I'm sure there was a lot of luck with a win rate like that, but it seems really effective. The only bad matchups I ran into were echo makto jank and mill, solitude is brutal when you have a couple tavrods milling your deck away.

I added some bailiffs though and replaced a sky king sword with life drinker since I only have two of them, It's decent for killing aegis weenies early and gets you a lot of life back if tav fetches it.
MrNoTimeMan Eternal Version: 1.27
Hey! I believe this deck is the best deck in the game no joke. If you enjoy playing cards like sabotage and winning with huge haymakers like tavrod and sword this deck is definitely worth it!
Arkimedes Edited Eternal Version: 1.27
Thanks for the reply! I'll do it. I'm just finishing a draft. I did a "greed" pick on draft packs, and got a great luck with around 14 rares. I think it's a good signal to create the deck lol. Also got 6-2 finishing the draft, which gave me more 3 packs and 1 Vara, the Fate Touched (already had four of she, so it's +800 shiftstone). Argenport Control here we go! :)
Btw can I add you in game to watch "how the deck plays"? :)

i thought ripping hammer off tav was "fun"....sotsk is a little bit better of a feeling
Ez3kie1 Eternal Version: 1.27
You beat me with this deck so I decided to try it out and it’s great!

What do you tend to mulligan for?
MrNoTimeMan Eternal Version: 1.27
Any hand with poster or privilege is ideal. But I’ll usually keep hands with good mana and castable cards
