Having reached lvl 50 with Songhai (good ol’ Hamon bae doing wonders out there) I was left with just one faction left to complete my lvl 50 roster. Unfortunately for me that faction was Abyssian. Which I really hated playing. Something about the lack of big body buffs and reliance on death synergy never resonated with me (I could play them, but it wouldn’t seem as fun as other factions.) So for my road to 50 I decided that I wanted to play something that helped minions stick and that would take advantage of inherent attack effects all while getting the most value out of said minions.
Enter Furor Chakram.
I cannot, and I repeat, CAN NOT sing enough praise about this card. It’s cheap (rarity wise), powerful, and good Lord the things you can do with your minions…It’s the fireblaze obelisk of Abyssian decks, making what are essentially frenzy dervish minions! Combine the proliferation of wriathlings and the various Abyssian attack reduction cards and BAM! You’ve got yourself a board clear/path to lethal all in one! My favorite matchups are against Xor when you can mindlathe their husks/grimes and then equip furor to further deter their trial progression. Seriously, great card. If you plan on trying this theme for yourself you’ve got to try furor in your tests. It’ll add a whole new depth to your plays.
Anywho, as with any Abyssian deck you’ll need to do a little counting when setting up for lethal. Really think about how you want to win this matchup. And most importantly, keep in mind what you can do. Hyperswarm runs you over without T.horn, Heal Ziran can cancel your wraithligs, and basically any deck with lategame potential can beat you if you don’t pull chakram. Surprisingly enough, the wanderer/vault matchups i’ve run into keep falling for the chakram+sepc rev combo so hope to God that you can set that up.
I’ve taken the liberty to replace Skullprophet (SP) with Necrotic Sphere as I’ve noted more wins via lategame combos rather than the enemy general surround tactic which SP promotes.
Individual card utility breakdowns & combos coming soon.
