“What if I wreck some balls”, I thought. And thus it was born. It did exactly what the thought described.
GO FACE, HEADS ROLL, digital collage, 2018
depicted in this piece is a turn 3 16 damage lethal that impresses a crowd of a duck, blood vessels who proclaimed independence crawled out of its bird shell, a burning skeleton, two anime lolis, of which one is suffering in anxiety and the other is amicably impressed, pink Focault, and a poorly drawn Gendo in the form of a Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff, symbolizing that all went according to plan. The pocket watch positioned to resemble a sun symbolizes the pressure of the inescapable clock bestowed by the aggro list, of which include, rooting for Zirix’s incandescent radiance, of which include the star Flameblood Grimm, Primus Fist cosplaying Healing Mystic, a cat and some dude Ive definitely never seen before. The ecstatic skeleton speaks for itself
This one is super cheap, burned through gold with a 10 winbstreak, did fine in mid diamond, and you can make it even cheaper by skipping Fury for more draw, but Rasha’s Curse is quintessential to the burst
my objective was to make a REELING BLAZING HOT deck that makes you go FULL SPEED KAMIKAZE, its the sexiesty way to play- to make something in which everything deals damage.
I got to diamond 1 with the above, got locked there with the occasional fall to d2, noticed I ran out of steam too fast and decided to tweak it
Opted out First Wish for the Dervish cycle guy, because screw FW honestly, I’d rather have more things to buff with Dunecaster, and its also a cycle that can give another cycle
With the loss of Tiger+wish turns, its not THAT savage a deck anymore, not all your cards deal damage, but the core is still there, and has nice output
P1T1: diagonal Flameblood Warlock
p2: walk forwards twice and do something dumb and slow
P1T2: Primus Fist on Mana + Second Wish on Warlock
the opponent now has 15 hp turn 2, you have 25, they have to deal with a 5/3 and a 2/3 on the board, and your entire deck is either burst or draw
lots of cantrips make it so that its not rare for you to actually make use of the sixth slot in the early game, Rasha+Dunecaster is removal + bodies, Second Wish anything that lives and it becomes a threat to be dealt with, Primus Fist helps you end the game or turn a poop dervish into an okay trader, Bone Swarm is nice BBS removal- your role is to scream and watch their HP diminish abnormally fast while you dump bodies every turn, delight thyself with their reluctance as they notice, _man, im at 11 hp, they’re at 20. when did everything go wrong
how is ramped embla real hahaha just aggro them haha like just go face
I actually find this list performs nicely against Wanderer because of its speed, and also against anything that doesnt require you to keep removing everything FREAKING LYONARS MAN these unpalatable fellas kept kicking me down and very mad for two days straight
something I am fond of doing with this list is taking the risk, sometimes I just ignore the board and go face, especially when I know I have three lots of my burst still in the deck- oh god I love Flameblood Warlock, this card is everything, its damage, its ping, its body, its aggro, is removal, its draw, its a mythron, and a spell, i want it as a general.
man, i got distracted. So yeah, because if you keep creating a strong board to burn them down, say, Rasha+Second Wish+Dunecaster, they have to remove it somehow, either taking time from their mana, or trading which is a clear in itself, and if you can keep burning them like that, at some point you’ll be at 13 hp, but they will be at 6 and its your turn and then you just win
It seems many regard this strategy as questionable, but somehow I managed to find more success with it than with full clears all the time. You dont wanna take a mass removal to the face and regret not GOING FACE.
Plus, with risk taking, it makes it easier to pull lethal out of nowhere, and tilt your enemies on the way out.
Kraigon couldnt save him
(as a disclaimer, i dont actually tilt on purpose, im pretty chill and lovely, and i like it when the opponent has fun, but when they let it get to their heads this hard, i find it difficult not choose to dance in mirrored rudeness and vice. there’s beauty in that too, you dont need to be kind all the time)
I just fell into S right now, which means Im doing something right, but, I mean, i’m also doing something is wrong because I struggled to do so
Thoughts? Help? Something? Anything?
