New version of Vets Pets:
Still a work in progress but I have not given up on the deck yet!
This version solves the Pets into thunder/rev problem by not actually keeping them on the field past the 4 mana turn. Mantela is a body we can put out that will put a pet in our hand for calculator and or to be replaced but not played.
Arid unmaking has a great combo with Rae or Aymara, or if you know rev/thunder is going to happen you can proc your Fault and then get rid of a pet.
Sol gives Ghoulie Rush, and Ghoulie counts towards Calculator. Sol can also be used to make cool pet plays, you can put a pet out, then summon a sol next to it away from everything else and let the activated pet do it’s job and kill its self off so it’s not vulnerable to rev/thunder. It’s also another way to make Rae a proper dispel.
Don’t usually put up works in progress like this just trying not to derail someone else’s thread.
Also putting my other work in progress from that same thread
Deepfire Provides an exelent way to self proc a bunch for grimwar, we sport two cycles and and 8 dying wish minons to be used with Nekoma. Thanks To nekoma/desolator we sport superb card advantage despite the low curve and darkfire. Azure is a great two drop that is very strong with swarm or of course the turn two deepfire.
We can of course furosa/crypto into an early swarm, and or cache in on early swarm with Devour or use Devour to manually proc grimwar. Darkfire adds another fun way to accelerate the deck and proc Azure who is just fun with swarm anyways. Nekoma adds extra consistency to the combos.
This has some serious potential! Wish I had thought of the base, but I think I put all the parts together in a way that will work, going to go give it a whirl.
I really want to fit mindlathe here as I just love the card, but its so awkward for this meta as there are so few things to use it on and it would cut into the valuable tech the deck has, as you really need healing vs aggro cass, and aoe vs walls/flying.
I am really loving my version of the deck. I have had some epic games with it, this one in particular was tons of fun, despite getting hard countered a couple times it still pulled through:
I have named my version Inferno because of Deepfire and Darkfire, and also a shout out to Dantes Inferno, as this deck very much has a fires of hell subtheme.
And my Echo decks in progress from a different thread:
It’s a variation of my eternal army deck, I really think trying to force both echos/consuming just is not a great plan, but just echos goes a really long way.
Echos or Skorn+Grimwar will do some very scary things. Skorn+Grimwar or Dancer is also pretty scary. Of course echos can just serve as a field multiplier, or a way to undispel things. Combine that with some dying wish synergy to help flood and provide card advantage and you have something that is pretty effective.
Here is one of my alternatives.
Cyrpto/furosa package give you the early game that the deck was lacking, artifact hunter provides card advantage and tutors for the most important card in the deck, grimwar. It takes a page out of my “famine” deck’s tricks with tracer to combo with grimwar or just be a good escape. Gor went to two to make room, as 3x felt a touch overkill now that the deck has some other good openers.
Its more consistent, but also more gimmicky.
