My latest creation. Loving the new expansion. Not too many new cards but the devs did a very good job of keeping diversity that enabled a lot of strategies to become stronger
Not really a hard puzzle, and there were probably easier, less flashy solutions-
But was pretty fun to pull off.
Anyway just a little preface, I generally don’t like to post my decks on here until I think they have been tweaked as good as they can be tweaked, but in this case I need help. I have always been a fan of control and frankly, having this low of a curve is giving me trouble with deckbuilding. If anyone has suggestions please let me know.
Gameplan is hurting yourself, but there are 3 different ways to hurt yourself.
You hurt yourself and your opponent to kill them/get ready for lethal soon. Not always for lethal, often times Midgame a 7 HP lifeswing can be detrimental. Don’t put yourself into lethal range though.
You hurt yourself and your opponent, but CS(Concealing Shroud) prevents self damage.
You hurt yourself and possibly your opponent to gain value/approval from your group of Emo friends sitting on the stairs during lunch.
I got the idea from the Shroud/Artifact Vanar, I was like dang this guy is getting real value from his card synergy. How can I push that to the limit? This is the way I believe. I have discovered that I don’t actually dislike aggro, it is just that I really really like getting good value out of my plays.
Shroud protects artifact charges, encourages you to trade more aggressively(finish off large minions, chip away enemy artifacts,) and prevents self damage from double edged sources.
I really enjoy these strategies because there are options. Realistically, you will play 2-4 CS each match. Alcuin is a fun card. This allows you to simply push for free face damage, proc effects on minions, or try to seize board control. Generally, greedy control oriented value minions are slow and do not play well vs aggro, but this deck does just fine.
Please let me know of any suggestions for improvements, or even any strategies that you think might work well. It has been ages since I have played such an aggressive deck(aggressive for me) and Vanar is also my least played class followed only by Songhai. Hope you enjoyed reading, and hope to wreck some of you guys on ladder!
