I think I’m only going to post the core-essence of a deck now. This should assist in providing the flexibility and other ideas other players may have for the deck.
Concept: Suiciding minions to beef up your others.
Main combo: Horror Burster + Consuming Rebirth
Lead up (Turns 1 and 2): Zyx, Gloomchaser, Gor.
All we need to do is get minions on the board and keep (at least some) alive.
Combos (Turns 3 and 4) Horror Bursters + Consuming Rebirth or Inkhorn Gaze. These are better than Darkfire Sacrifice (DFS) because we don’t have any high mana minions AT THE MOMENT (note, with space for 9 cards, we can add in both DFS and high mana minions if we’d like)
By now, you have at least 1 6/6 on the board, possibly 2. What’s so extra nice about it - they can’t be dispelled.
Following turns: Your 6/6’s get killed off by some BS? Not to worry, Nether Summoning is available to bring them right back, and fits right in pace with 5 mana!
NOTES: (1) Horror Burster will change any random minion, so if only fresh/non-exhausted minions are on board, you can immediately make use of the 6/6. (2) You CAN end up changing your on 6/6 minion into…a 6/6 minion. Make use of the 1st one.
Required: At start, replace cards until you have at least 1 Horror Burster.
Opinion: With all the complaints about Variax being too quick (which Variax isn’t the issue, DFS is), this may actually be quicker, even against a turn 5 Variax. Horror Bursters NEED friendly minions to be effective, so it is extremely important to the deck to work on keeping them alive. 6/6 minions that can’t be dispelled is strong. Reviving Horror Bursters, Reviving 6/6’s with Nether Summoning. This deck seems scary.
Edit: Azure Horn Shaman aren’t required, but if it’s able to be used to get a 6/6 minion to 6/10, it’d be a nice touch.
