Hi there everyone, i just wanted to share a deck idea i came out with for the reworked Kara. unlike previous Kara builds. this one is an arcanyst deck that revolves around casting spells and summoning a sea of tokens so big it makes Rhys the Redeemed players jealous (not really, but you get my point ). anyway, onto the decklist:
This deck wins by either getting a token generator such as prismatic illusionist to stick, or combining it with kara’s new bbs and other spells on the turn you play it. this leads to huge armies of tokens that’s if you have an owlbeast sage out, will keep growing until one of them is removed. Jax is there for you if this strategy doesn’t work however, because combined with bbs he becomes 10/10 worth of ranged stats for 7 mana. this also allows it to survive skorn, one of the main reasons the card wasn’t played for a while. once you have lots of targets on the board, you can drop razorback and swing away for tons of damage.
When you have a prismatic or firestarter in hand, it’s better to play the minion first AND THEN bbs. it may seem better to bbs first, but you get overall more value if you do it this way due to getting an extra token which is then buffed. As i found out when testing this, plasma storm is your worst nightmare. although this deck can improve the health of your minions, it has no way of boosting their damage permanently, so storm is really good. just try not to play into it too much and you should be fine.
Polarity: A cheap spell for removal or token generation. it can turn your owlbeast sage from an annoyance into a way to kill your opponent as well
Aspect of the Fox: It’s a cheap removal that can also be used on walls for a little extra damage in a pinch. Just an overall useful card.
Jaxi: Synergises well with bbs when killed on your turn. A 2/2 ranged is much more scary than a 1/1
Bonechill Barrier: This is mostly a replacement for gravity well, since i don’t have any. 3 1/3 walls that stun minions on attack is still really good though.
Hailstone Prison: It’s another cheap way of delaying your opponent. very good in spell decks
Spelljammer: Since this deck relies on spamming cheap spells, your hand tends to empty really fast, this helps fill it back up. It also works really well with hailstone prison. If i owned 3 I’d be using them here
Razorback: Good old razor has always been one of my favorite Vanar cards, and i love finding excuses to put him in my decks. This is the perfect one for it because he just works so well with the game plan
Firestarter: He’s both a value engine and a source of burst when comboed
Frostiva: if it’s not dealt with it gets out of control fast. forcefield is my favorite keyword and this is one of the best minions with it
Jax Truesight: The king of value is back with a vengeance. he used to be used in all competitive vanar decks but fell out of favor due to skorn existing. this problem is basically solved single-handedly by kara’s bbs. the only cards i can think of that trade one-for-one with him are plasma storm and frostburn. correct me if i’m wrong though.
And that just about sums up the decklist. I hope you all have fun swarming your opponent with walls, illusions, and robots
