This is absolutely correct, while Zirix CAN generate bodies to bodyblock, Sajj can outright eliminate a minion and sometimes, thats just better.[quote=“RyanH, post:9, topic:3301”]
Staff of Y’kir is just horrible, I’m sorry. Take them out and put in 2x Spinecleavers + 1 Falcius. Spinecleavers generate immense amounts of pain, especially if you can fish an Ankh (but that’s more greedy!)
Again, correct, Spinecleavers are not as bursty as the usual set of artifacts, that is true, but what they do grant is a level of near inevitability that forces them to find a way to finish you off quickly or die in the process. It also makes it easier if you find your combo being several damage points off, just combo anyway and let the pings finish off your opponent.[quote=“RyanH, post:9, topic:3301”]
If you can, find room for 1 Circle of Desiccation. It synergises well with Spinecleaver, and also provides a lategame comeback mechanic.
Yup, also has synergy with Artifacts (since its not as reliant on board) and allows you to trigger your own Aymaras’ DW to get that emergency healing or that last bit of damage.
This one is not as incredibly important since artifact decks are more stalling-centric instead of flat survivability.
If you find yourself short on capability to stall, adding Primus Shieldmasters or Dioltas can be incredibly helpful.[quote=“RyanH, post:9, topic:3301”]
I’d also kill Grincher until it’s fixed. Right now, the cost reduction is bugged as hell.
I agree with this, the bugginess makes it even less consistent, at least for now, I’d run artifact hunter in its’ place.
I’d also totally add a 3rd Aymara, but thats just me.
Now, if you are deadset on using Zirix anyway, consider adding Cosmic Flesh, the ability to give anything provoke is powerful and when your deck relies on stalling, it becomes that much more powerful.
