So, I managed to build a Xor deck that actually works pretty well and can win consistently.
Here’s the list:
It’s based on a “Hybrid Xor” deck and is capable of many game-plans at once, resulting in a very versatile deck that can handle many different situations.
Gameplan 1: Build a swarm with Priestess and cash in with Chakram/DFC/Shadowdancer
This is your most reliable wincon. I feel like people tend to replace their removal outside of dispel when facing a Xor deck and don’t really expect a swarm tactic. This results in Priestess often going unanswered which allows you to gain tempo very quickly.
Gameplan 2: Spam death spells to rush out Xor
This is a bit less reliable, depending on what you draw early on, but an ideal hand can result in completing the trial very quickly. For instance, if you have a couple Darkfire Sacrifices or Aphotic Drain’s in hand alongside a Vellumscry, with a Sarlac/Gor on board, you can easily progress by 3-4 spells in a single turn. Vellumscry in particular can enable huge tempo turns in this respect, rushing out your Trial while also keeping a full hand.
Gameplan 3: Buff minions with Shaman
This is an alternative for when you don’t draw a Gor/Sarlac or Priestess early on. Cryptographer into Shaman is a strong play that results in a 4/8 and a 2/6. Combine with Chakram for devastating results.
Honestly I feel like this deck is really strong. I’m currently in Diamond and seeing if I can reach S Rank with it. Here’s some notable replays:
