cascadin gambit is one of the few meme decks I can claim to play well. Here’s a fairly decent list based off of what I run.
Now obviously araki is a very poor addition to any Magmar deck. We don’t have the positional tools to suddenly bring it up front, and playing it as an opening drop is useless. It’s incredibly hard to make work, eats far more removal than you can imagine, takes a while to scale up, and is useless in the late game. In the early game, with so much removal? pffftttt. It’s a great idea gone wrong.
Now for some memes, you could toss the very sane and useful and practical golem package, for the prophet of the white palm and araki combo, which is equally retarded, and useless against transform. I don’t recommend it, but you could make a deck like this:
Now araki is frankly going to sit unused in your hand all day long, and it takes a great deckbuilder to make use of him, and another faction. Unless you really commit, and drop a buff on him, which is basically just asking for him to get dispelled even faster. Or removed. Whichever comes first. So I don’t believe in making a deck that would only support araki. Instead, a deck that is functional before memey is far better(which is just about any midrange magmar build)
some other shit if you want to read it.
A few card choices from my lists:
Clearly spelljammer is far better. However I commit to RNG, and I commit to RNG hard. So I can tell you that the one time this card gave me a goddamn fractal and kraigon, I went nuts. I also screwed over a nutty grow chirpuka madness deck with it. And I’ve gotten plenty of useful cards. Especially Rizen, who makes for some sick memes against eggmar decks. Anyhow, use it. Plus its opening gambit synergy. Best four drop for opening gambit.
for that ramped out grimes. Ramp grimes whenever you can. You usually get a decent body. Plus there are those nutty worldcore lethals he gives you every now and then. (While I’m on that, grimes and cascading is usually difficult to pull off. cascading is far better on lkian, or a lavaslasher. Lavaslasher gives you either a makantor or an armada, or a visionar. all of which are useful. sister gives you some other decent drops. THen again most magmar 5 drops are good.)
Tech because you have such little ping
And no selection? Selection isn’t all that useful anyway.
I also had armada in my original list. It’s useful for burst lethals et etc. Nice card. HIgh curve. and mag already has two good 6 drops, not to mention the fact that u have grimes as well.
Why you should buy L'kian
While I can’t claim to have gotten teh greatest gimes cascade plays since the combo rarely works out, I can claim to say that L’kian is very good.(And grimes even game a worldcore and a little elder once)
