Need advice on Midrange Argy


#1

Hello, I’m trying to start playing Lyonar. I especially want to play some midrange Argeon stuff. As I don’t have any cards in Lyonar, I would like you guys to tell me what are the most important ones to craft (epic and legendaries) and if possible a deck for midrange Argeon. Thanks :slight_smile:


#2

Epic

  • Holy Immo
  • Trinity Salt
    and to a lesser extent,
  • Circle of Life

Legendaries:

  • Arclyte Reg
  • Tree of Apes
  • Golemkeeper (for golem decks only)

Lots of other stuff are below legendary/epic or are reserved for mlem decks. Decimate might be worth a look, but isn’t used too often anymore

Elyx is strong too.

Check Argeon here, in unrated section, maybe you’ll get some ideas:

Argeon also can gain advantages from Sunstrike and Sunforge lancer. Sunstrike sometimes can be better to reach distant enemies and needs no minions to base like Holy Immo. 3 damage compared to 4 is sadly a big difference. I like Sunforge lancer since these are real threats if you run even just some heal synergies. Increasing the attack power of your general for even just some turns has a big impact and helps a lot against Magmar, Songhai and other Lyonar. I use them in Zir’an, Titan and Tempo Lyonar lists.

Hope that helps


#7

Golemkeeper…you mean peace keeper?
That card sucks,even in golem decks

Just make Death’s tempo Argeon deck. Straightforward, effective. And don’t craft peacekeepers or Elyx stormblades, no one uses those. Sorry @mmf and @loliconartist.

Instant edit: I’m willing to personally vouch for the deck, it’s currently the only Argeon deck I run at all, and I have a lot of fun with it. It has all the stuff I liked about older tempo Argeon decks, but the inclusion of big high-cost answers to top out the mana curve lets it deal with a lot of problems. And since it leaves spelljammers out, it doesn’t feed cards to the opponent like other tempo Argeon builds.

Wow, the deck looks really good.

Too bad I don’t have Aperion.


#10

new tempo argeon has become alot faster with the introduction of mythrons, so holy immo and gryphon fledgeling carry it a bit


#11

craft it, plebian


#12

If only I got some spirit for every time someone on forums tries to be smartass.

This is more tempo than midrange, but I figured I’d drop it. Tempo arg got some pretty nice tools with the expansion. Lifestream is incredible with riftwalker and warlock. Walker in particular is nice vs slower decks, as 8 cores enables you to immo anywhere on the board and kill anything thunderhorn-sized at the very least. Combine with some early game favorites like lion, silverguard, and the still-broken sentinel-BTA opener, and it’s very easy to tempo most opponents out.

Definitely wouldn’t put it over a well-crafted wanderer, but it’s definitely viable.


#14

Gryphon fledging man. Trust me.


#15

Thanks a lot for all your replies !
I also had a meme-ish idea and I was wondering if it could work:
Play Brome with a lot of provoke minions and a control deck. On 7 mana, play Mnemovore and Steadfast Formation. Mnemore gets removed because it is duelyst we’re talking about, duh and next turn, play Amaranthine Vow to summon Mnemovore + a lot of provoke minions and almost mill out the other guy. Does this even work? Is it playable?


#16

I dont believe that giving a minion provoke summons it back from vow
