Well, here’s the deck. Still a work in progress though.
Firstly, I really like Scroll Bandit. I can even say, that I dreamt of it. Even proposed it: Fan Card Design Hub: Submissions (Updated 10/31) (see spell thief, you will probably find some similarities).
So I decided to make arcanyst deck, which uses lots of unconventional card draw mechanics. Xho and LFox are already used often in a number of decks. Then add the newbies - Scroll Bandit and Mind-Cage Oni, and also SparrowHawk, which comboes well with the Bandit. These guys make you have plenty of random spells in hand which are nice with Owlbeast, Chakri and Kindling. Conjurer is in the test phase, I found myself having lots of spells but not so much minions, want to see how it goes with him.
If you manage to have at least one of your draw engines alive each turn it makes for wonderful, undescribable turns. Undescribable since you don’t always know what you get.
I’m currently in silver, since I didn’t play for several months. In silver this deck works perfectly, but everything works perfectly in silver, so at the moment I don’t quite know what happens in gold or diamond.
Curve is rather low, so you should have moderately agressive start and gain tempo early. If you will manage to do it, the deck often wins on 7-8 mana with sheer damage. If you don’t - you will either manage to regain tempo with all those random spells or you will be buldozed - random spells can be crap.
Still the deck may be a pile of crap as it is, since, again, I haven’t tested it anywhere except silver. Pure fun, however.
If one wants more random spell fun, Alcuin, Mindwarper, Calligrapher and Joseki are always ready for action.
Any thoughts, guys?
