Hello, CreepMeDown here bringing you a Vanar list that might feel close to some others but oh well, what can you do?
Before I start with the post, if you have any question about the list or anything feel free to add me in game or reply here. I’ll try to come to the forums at least once per day. Go ahead and stalk my losses too
I’ve been playing for the past 8 months like 100-150 games per month and reached SRank last month with faie only. I’m going to try again this month with this deck that I’ll keep updating. Still, I doubt I’ll make it since it’s exam season -.-’’
Without further ado, here’s the decklist: (EDIT: took 1 Dioltas out for 1 more Shroud. I felt I wasn’t drawing it enough.)
So, the goal of this deck is to ramp to 8 mana as quickly as possible with 3x Wisp and start burning the opponent down with Meltdown. Meanwhile, you’ll also be trying to survive as long as possible with Shroud, Corona and Herald.
Some particular card choices:
2x White Asp - It’s my favourite card <3 <3 <3 Also synergises well with Shroud.
2x Bonereaper is mainly personal preference. I was playing Embla before just to try her out but she seemed to provide too low impact so I swapped her out. I think Bonereaper is good thanks to Enfeeble as you can play those two together at 9 mana and most of the time you’ll ramp up there quite fast.
No Sleet Dasher as I don’t have enough deckspace to support it properly and without support it’ll mostly be a dead card. If it survives, its impact will still be low.
Alternatively, you can run Embla and Razorback instead of Meltdown and Dancing Blades, but I feel you’d just be better off with the regular Jax + Razorback combo. It’ll be fresher so, if that’s what you are looking for, it’ll most likely still be worth doing and will still kill the opponent, except at little later.
Vet - Sadly (or not) I haven’t played against any Obelysk vet to test it out. However, you should win 2/3 matchs against artifact Sajj thanks to Corona and Shroud.
Magmar - Mostly in your favour. If you let the Vaath get out of control, he’ll win most likely. Don’t give up, you can always Enfeeble and Skorn/Reaper. Save a few CCs for his body. Aggro magmar does your job for you: they kill themselves while you just stay alive.
Abyssian - Honestly a skill matchup against ramp. At diamond 5 I win most of them, but it’s not that high yet so I might encounter problems in the future. I’ll try to talk to Traestare to test against a skilled ramp player.
Cassyva is hell on earth, but if you can remove that stupididly OP and senseless card Kelaino you’ll do fine. Play around Grasp of Agony.
Vanar - Skill matchup of course.
Songhai - Easy, they can’t kill you in between Shrouds and Coronas.
Lyonar - I saved the worst for last :’( I just can’t seem to win vs them reliably. However, that’s because I get tilted very easily. Even before the expac my worst matchup with every faction was Healnar (yeah…). (Please delete sunriser!)
