I had very (very) bad luck yes, but maybe I piloted it the wrong way too (trying both to prevent your Mech-horn from snowballing and to progress Xor’Xuul at the same time was hard).
In my current tests with Nightmare-Nekomata-Deceptib0t-Chakram, I finally feel that this is a bit awkward, a tad too costly/slow maybe? Although very reliable on the tutor side up to Nekomata. It’s the top end that feels fragile, where you haven’t built a board and you have to play two 5-mana pieces. I haven’t found my footing there yet, and I’m starting to think that I should try without Chakram…
That artefact is godly when you have built a small board before dropping it, but here you’re actively triggering Death Wishes so you’re super light on board presence. This deck has Gor though, so why not?
Deceptib0t could be -1, and we could remove the 2 Spectral Blades to make room for a control piece of some sort. This deck feels like it needs some breathing space.
I can’t say a lot more, as Maehv and Xor’Xuul haven’t been my cup of tea so far.
