(Fake)? Aggro Cassy Deck help

Hi, I’m pretty new to the forums, but I’ve read lots of deck guides/posts on how to play this game, and I need help with my aggro cassy.

I would really appreciate getting help on what to improve on, but I don’t want people just mindlessly showing decklists and telling me to copy them.
I’m also trying to play a sort of unique deck, so its not standard aggro cassy.

The amount of 1-ofs are killing me and if you want consistent plays you need to change it to more 2-3 copies. If you’re playing aggro then you don’t really need lure, you don’t need conversion and you definitely don’t need necro sphere. Aim for more face damage options and add in more grasps

well, you want to replace healing mystic with flameblood warlock
get rid of the 1x cards and add primus fist. more grasps, cutting the conversions


No, no, no as someone who loves aggro cass 3x Lure always, heck if you want to cut removal, cut punish down to 2.


3x lure in every and any single abyss deck


I always assumed lure was a staple, and put it in all my Abyss
What should I replace for conversion?
The 1-ofs are because I don’t have more of the card

Don’t have primus fist :frowning:

They’re common and rares, you can’t be that stingy…

3 desolators before 3 primus fist :sweat:

how many staple commons did you dust to get 3 desolators :sweat:

I actually mained creep-abyss before rotation, and just came back after it, so I really am that stingy.


I haven’t enchanted stuff from other factions that I might use later, so could do that to craft the stuff you guys want me to add.

If you’re strapped on spirit, just complete quests and buy ancients orbs if you’ve already completed the set (if you haven’t then buy core orbs).

As for what to replace conversion with, flameblood warlock, primus fist, and (seeing how many Opening Gambit minions you have) araki headhunter might be good picks.

it depends on how far you want to take this deck and how (dis)interested you are in other factions

aggro cass? well here u go

wait he changed it

BTW, you may disenchant stuff from Shim Zar if you’re not going to play unlimited. Just a note.

This is a pretty optimized version of the deck

If you dont have spelljammer just put hailstone golem or shieldmaster instead. Craft thorn as soon as possible, its the best neutral minion right now

I second @masterhuehue. @deathsadvocate always delivers. And yeah, he changed it, there’s two versions there now, a dark seed version and an intensify version, both good. I prefer the intensify version. @project2el’s version also looks pretty solid, although I’ve never tried phantasms out personally.

Also, if you’re going to run minions that die when they attack the enemy general (flameblood warlocks, void talons) blood sirens combo pretty well with them. Especially with void talons, if they can’t answer or escape from the talon on its build turn, it comes out, you sic a blood siren on them, the talon slices and dices for six damage, and they start their next turn with a 3/2 and a 6/1 camped out on their face.

Here’s Deathsadvocate’s Immortal-Vanguard-era aggro Cassy deck (the one called Death, he always calls it Death) where he uses that exact siren-talon combo.


OP said they didn’t want to just be shown lists, they wanted advice.

That’s because it is. Put it in every Abyssian deck you ever build.

As far as the deck goes, cut necro sphere, cut the 1 of Nightmare Operant for 3 Primus Fist (just craft them, it’s cheap) cut Conversion for Flamebloods, consider dropping BTA, Shieldmaster and maybe a Punish. Dark Seed can also be really strong.

Aggro cass usually plays to dominate the very early game and get the opponent to 15-7 health by the time they start loosing on the board. Cards like Demonic Lure, Bloodtear Alchemist, and Soelljammer help a lot.

When you start to loose steam with the board, you switch to either an offensive face rush strategy, with Tigers, Flameblood, or Spectral Blade or a slower chip strategy with Desolater, and Voidpulse. Whether to play more chippy or more aggressive depends on how confident you are that the opponent can’t kill you quickly, or how much heal they are running.

In the past, Revenant was used as a finisher. Now, Alpha, Revenant, or Unleash can be used as finishers, if you feel like you need one. Reflection can also pull surprise lethal.



But the best way to give advice is with lists complete with compare and contrast. As long as you dont just post a list without explanation I see no harm in doing so.


Its still there, you just linked it weirdly to maev. There are also two variants now, plus a note that gibbet is a flex slot with a few options.

Oh no that’s fine, but it seems like some people just told them to use the list they posted without talking much about card choices.
