Feels like forever since I last shared a deck, but worry not, I am here to provide a high quality meme list for you all today.
Today, we’re playing Doom, a card with unrivaled lategame power. 3 turns after casting it, your opponent will instantly die. But as a 9 mana card that asks you to more or less skip your turn, it’s easy to imagine falling behind after playing it. Naturally, an empty board gives you time to cast Doom more than a board filled with enemies. For this reason, the deck utilizes a shell of stabilizing tools, meant to keep the board under control while you bide your time for the final countdown.
Your single target removal includes daemonic lure and punish, while your AoE consists of a few varied and conditional options. Throw in Desolators for artifact matchups, Magesworn for spell-based burn/combo decks, Silhouette Tracers for quick escapes from unmanageable boards or scary 10 atk Vaaths, and a little extra healing to help you reach the late game, and it’s surprising how much this deck can handle.
Like with any control deck, it’s important to predict how a match will play out. It influences your replaces and when you choose to make use of certain resources in your hand. The Breath of the Unborn you may keep against Strategos for Jax Truesight could be dead weight against a mantra list for example.
Ultimately, the end goal is to cast Doom and, well, survive. Pulling the trigger on Doom without properly stabilizing can be game-ending, so be sure you can afford to cast it. Once you’ve played Doom, your mission isn’t necessarily to control the whole board, just the parts that immediately threaten you. A card that can’t threaten before Doom triggers is a card that doesn’t exist .
I don’t promise you a tier 1 deck. I promise you a “not terrible” deck. And I would hope these stats suggest it’s not bad (granted this was from my climb to Diamond this season. I played this last season in S to about 60% success).
Moral of the story: your memes can be more than dreams, and Abyssian is secretly OP. Tell your friends!
