It has been a very long time since I posted a decklist, probably because I suck at making decks. With the expansion Magmar got a lot of very strong cards and I’ve been playing a lot of extreme aggro lists. However, with all of the self damage taken you run the risk of dying to a quick burst so I’ve been trying a slower deck.
Earthspheres and Plasma Storm gives you great sustain, pushing your health into unburstable ranges while plasma lets you wipe out weak trash. A lot of the other cards are just Magmar staples like Makantor, young silithar, thumping, and the new entropic gaze. Rancour doesn’t have a whole lot to synergize with but you can always attack their face for a 2 mana 3/3 and there is always elucidator and tectonic spikes.
The real meat of the deck is Cryptographer and Drogon. Crypto is a very solid card in Vaath. Each point of additional attack hits important thresholds and crypto lets you hit them asap. 3 attack one shots 2/3s, 4 attack kills things like 4 winds, elucidator, and makantors, and so on.
Drogon is an okay 4 drop minion that lets you clear things with your face. Later in the game he gives you solid burst to finish the opponent off. Together they give insane damage outputs. With base attack bbs, crypto, bbs is 14 damage and it increases by increments of 4 for each additional base point. The 2 card combo only takes 2 cards and 8 mana to pull off out of hand and is a great finisher.
Silhouette tracer gives you reach and enables you to escape. The same goes for tiger.
A potential problem is dealing with Faie as they can dispel your buffs with chromatic and hide behind shroud to nullify your damage. I would play lightbender except for space issues and that it also dispels your buffs.
Well thats all of my thoughts on the matter. Try the list out guys and feel free to ask any questions or share any suggestions. We need to work together to spread the cancer.
