This time it’s two memes for the price of one! The premise of the deck is very simple: heal so much that either you or your opponent vomits, and put your big late-game threat to the table when the time is right.
The deck started as a Variax deck:
After some testing, I quickly realized that a) it’s darn hard to get to utilize Variax and b) man Aphotic Drain sucks (tells something about a card that in a most niche list there could be it’s still useless pretty much every time)
So, I switched Variax to Meltdown and added some Cryptographers for consistency.
Lo and behold, the Healdown:
To my disappointment, the Meltdown version has the same 50% winrate in gold as the Variax one (8 wins out of 16 for both. Yes I really played 32 full games with these, I’m not very sane when it comes to testing memes… :P)
No real reason to do card-by-card this time, so I’ll just add some random observations:
Your wincons include (in an increasing order of importance) the usual Kelaino/Revenant spam, Meltdowning the opponent to oblivion, multiple RNGsus miracles, and the opponent conceding due to the sweet’n’simple frustration.
It’s not rare that you waste more heals during a game than actually do damage to your enemy. Planning ahead helps though!
Faie is a pretty tough opponent, I wonder why that is #sarcasm
Healyonar could obviously be an absolute nightmare to play against, but against the 4-5 Zir’An I played only 1 actually used any heal-based combos? Go figure.
20 minutes per game does not feel that long anymore…
Facing Aggromar was pretty fun, incoming instaconcedes at 7-8 mana
