Dervish Deck Help


#1

My dervish deck consists of this so far

Zirix

2 Siphon energy
3 SFW
2 Dunecasters
3 Ethereal Obelysk
3 Healing Mystic
3 Pax
3 Primus Fist
3 WOFS
3 Falcius
3 Fireblaze Obelysk
3 Allomancer
2 Entropic Decay
1 Star Fury
3 Aymara
2 Dominate Will

Just looking for advice to make this better, It has decent draw with WOFS and SFW. But I was thinking of replacing some cards for Keeper of the Value for more Obelysk value


#2

If you want obelysk “value” then Nimbus is the way to go, Keeper might bring back a dunecaster


#3

To be honest, the deck looks pretty much perfect for Dervish synergy, you could even go so far as to replace either Mystic or Fist for 2 Nimbus and a third Siphon. Most Vet decks these days run 2 Siphon/2 Shroud so you have some diversity in terms of ranged dispell and tile-based dispell.


#4

I’d suggest falcius, I love that card


#5

That is no problem

Keeper with dunecaster is at minimum a 5/5 for 5, which is not terrible value, however the other minion with value such as rezzing a Obelysk or Aymara would boost value and tempo immensely


#6

Have it already in the decklist


#7

I’m iffy on Keeper, yeah when the value’s good it’s good, but sometimes you’ll end up reviving a Dunecaster.

Personally I’m a fan of Scion’s Second Wish and Cosmic Flesh in a Dervish build. But that’s mostly because that’s my answer against Songhai when they Onyx Bear Seal my shit. Oooh, it’s a cheesy play but it’s great when you pull it off.

3/4 + 2/1 is not the same as a 5/5, for instance, the 5/5 would trade with Kron and both would die (after two swings). Your 3/4 + 2/1 trade into Kron, leaving it up, and both die. As an example.

Skorn also eliminates a full 2 dmg off of your equation, etc.

You just can’t add stats like that. And 3/4 + 2/1 vanilla for 5 mana is a big tempo loss. Even 3/4 + 2/3 (Primus/Healing Mystic_ is iffy, I mean, for 5 mana I can drop a Falcius + Primus/Healing Mystic, and actually benefit from the OGs to create a huge tempo swing.


#9

What’s a game without a little risk?


#10

i put 1 scions third wish as a finisher. it always catches people by suprise since almost no one plays it. but thats because i dont have 3 aymaras or any nimbus


#11

Check out my Necron Obelisk deck, third one on the thread here:

I like my triple dominate, but many people don’t, fitting a copy of stars fury like you do is a sollid option as well.


#12

Risk is fine, I’m just saying you’re not actually getting a 5/5 at the very least, which is important :slight_smile:
