I haven’t the faintest idea about how I can successfully run good-ish Songhai decks but I’ve become inexplicably drawn to the idea of a Xaanite Backstab deck. I know Duelyst Central exists but I’m a dope and I just want to play a true, dedicated Backstab deck that I can enjoy in Gold. How would you do this? To me, the following seems like a configuration of a reasonable selection of cards for that purpose:
Everything plays around Backstab and “move” effects, and you maintain hand size with Bandit, Oni, Bakezori and Killing Edge. I like the double Sentinels to actually (hopefully) surprise the enemy and a 2/5 Backstabbing Flyer for 3 seems great anyway. I like Seal over Protocol because if you reach a point where you start buffing minions with Jaguar you’ll have board advantage and won’t need the activation as much on the big minions. I like Deathstrike over Onyx Bear because a Panddo can just shut this deck down if you don’t draw Flamewreath or Juxta, and Deathstrike synergizes with Flamewreath.
But honestly, I’m just guessing about all this. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of someone playing Bakezori, so please let me know in what kind of way you would build an archetypal Backstab deck! I hope to read your thoughts.
