So in my efforts to restore fun to ladder here is another Songhai decklist I’ve been playing lately.
Full disclaimer, small sample size of games don’t make for optimal testing but I won’t be able to play much this next week so wanted to get the deck out there.
Without further ado;
The list above in question is 11-2 in total in S atm (S rank position 8 as of typing) and I stress again that these are small sample sized to be drawing any real data from. That said, some musings.
Less overall damage per turn than the Artifact build but boasting higher longevity due being less hurt by common tech on ladder atm.
Phoenix Barrage is much better here due to decks such as Wanderer/Ox/Fault playing a slower gameplan in general while also running little in the way of heals, leaving you a opening of piling up massive amounts of damage before they can stabilize with a game winning board.
Marauder is very good against Wanderer on curve (requiring specific answers and beating Wanderer itself head to head) often resulting in awkward body blocks which favors your BBS and removal which can lead to devastating swings. Also one of the best cards against arguably your worst matchup, Ziran, while also just acting as a strong bluff on ladder as even when holding on to removal your opponents still have to hold on to potential dead cards for multiple turns at the risk of being blown out early on.
Q&A as per usual, enjoy and have a good weekend!
PS; if anyone has a specific theme or deck idea they want tested or feedback on I’m open to that as well.
