I thought I’d share a concept I’ve been working on since I don’t have that much time playing atm due to irl stuff. Feel free to tinker, comment or just give some advice and lets collaborate to make this a fun one shall we.
And now for the deck:
So what the hell is going on here exactly?
What we have here is a unique take on the Mantra archetype but instead of relying on out of hand damage, we aim to combo cheap spells to discount our Kensho Vortex’s and eventually summon big boards while controlling the enemy board and sustaining ourselves with Firestorm Mantra.
Kensho Vortex gets a double discount if drawn with Loreweaver and weaver in particular combo’s well with cheap cards such as Gotatsu, often resulting in you drawing 4+ more spells at a time, which can be particularly devastating if one of those are Kensho as it will be practically free to cost almost as soon as you draw it with your Loreweaver.
Vortex will always gives you a minion with a mana cost equal to the spell you cast +2 so a 2 mana spell will give a 4 drop, a 5 mana spell with give a 7 drop etc.
In the instance where you cast a 8 mana spell, since there are no 10 cost minions in the game, Vortex will summon the next closest thing, in this case Worldcore Golem. In other words a zero mana Kensho combo’d with a Spiral Technique will always summon Worldcore Golem.
The Primary payoff cards for Vortex are your Barrage’s as they can give you a 7 and 4 drop will dealing 6 damage to the enemy for a single card. Mantra can heal you and deal damage while getting a 8 drop and Spiral as noted above will summon a 25/25. However do not be afraid to use it in combination with stuff like Bamboozle early on as developing a 5 drop while removing their minion is pretty good value too.
