How do you make vanar decks


Please tell me how to make Vanar decks, no matter how much I try I cannot wrap my head around this faction, I can make decks for every other faction there’s just something about vanar I don’t get.

Is this deck any good?


Kara loves her some Luminous Charges/Arcanyst/Jax+Razorback shenanigans

Vanar in general has great ramping tactics and Faie’s BBS has always been a reliable alt wincon


No, no it’s not.

Check here out.

Me and @snowshot will definitely be willing to help (don’t know about Snow but he should be able to.)

Step 1 of making a viable Vanar deck: Play Faie.
Step 2: Add the needed staples of thaye archetype.
Step 3: Add arguably the strongest removal in the game to it.
Step 4: Unless the deck is Midrange, Aggro or Tempo add Blue Conjurer.
Step 5: Add Wild Hunt (this depends on the number of minions you play)
Step 6: ???
Step 7: Profit.


Karas viable too silly faie *ucker :~)


I have no idea what that asterisk is but I’m currently deciding which is more lewd.

Yes but Faie has a lot more decks which she is better at so it is more general.


Kara background guy smashed scarzig and brits booty.

Don’t forget to put in Wisps to steal mana, them bouncing/transforming/playing EMP so your enemy never gets the mana back.


That is included in staples but bouncing/transforming it is a waste and Lightbender/EMP are a waste unless they hit other things.


This is the deck I’m running this season. It’s far from perfect, but it’ll give you a basic idea on how Vanar decks will run.

Any further advice? I couldn’t find room for all the cards, so I had to cut one CC.

So how are you lacking space?


I must’ve been mistaken. Give me a moment while I figure this out.

i got nothing to add, vanar in my opinion is the hardest faction to master so creating decks needs some thinking.

i do believe that faie is a safe bet as you see.

you can run control wall ----> hold on a sec…

i prefer embla razorback on faie and seraphim on ilena (ilena got better sustain through bbs synergy and fairly cheap minions).
this is my faie list for now - you basically turture your opponent and razorback them to next dimension when time comes —>very fun! positional and tactical deck! enjoy.

i sometimes go 3 mountain, 2 frostburn, it’s not important.
and sometimes go 3 conjurers instead of callers, depend on the day.

btw - @epicflygon what do you think about it?


This is mainly personal taste but I don’t like.Snowchaser and I believe that Seraphim is staple in any Vanar deck as well as Blue Conjurer being staple in any Vanar deck that aims to win in the lategame.


in general - if you want any other general deck just ask in the vanar thread, beside the decks that are already there we can always add some more ideas to build on.

you are right, you know how my ilena deck looks like (pressure to the roof + seraphim sotw).
but here i tried to give different direction mainly just to give more options.
