After maining Aby for about a year and getting a bit lost with it lately, I decided to change things up a bit. Songhai caught my attention, particularly idea of a deck build around direct General damage (now that Phoenix Fire has got so many flavors).
This is what I currently run. I called it “Song of Fire” (yes, it’s a pun on “A Song of Ice and Fire”).
Main question for me is what to craft now, because I don’t have many cards and not sure if I need them.
I had Mist Walking for some mobility but was rarely using it and switched out for Rockadoptera.
I probably don’t need Gotatsu and can switch it for something else (same as third Geomancer, Sister and Magi).
Crescent Spear should be instead of Alkyone, but I don’t have it and don’t want to craft as it will be rotated out in like a month.
Onyx Bear Seal should be instead of Bamboozle, but I don’t have it.
I don’t have Firestorm Mantra and don’t think I really need it as I have plenty of other damage sources (and it’s kinda a point to show off with, that I win without using the most annoying cheese, like I didn’t use Revenant).
I don’t have Lantern Fox, but it probably will be the first card to craft for this deck.
I’m not sure if I need Whiplash and Mana Vortex.
I’m not sure if I need Eight Gates. Wildfire Tenketsu seems more versatile, but Eight Gates is safe to craft.
I probably need Alcuin Loremaster or Abjudicator or Manaforger. All 3 will be too much as it’s not an Arcanyst deck, Loremaster seems most useful.
