What in the world is a meme deck?


#1

Newbie here. I’m trying to learn the game through the forums but I just don’t get what do people mean by meme deck. or memey-cards. send help


#2

Gimmicks. Meme decks are gimmick decks. Fun to play but not practical to use.


#3

I see. I kind of don’t know where the line is drawn yet tho.mechs, vet/mag golems and vanarcanysts are the practical decks i can think of at the top of my head. I don’t know where the rest of the cards lean towards though.

Meme deck for example is Bombard Songhai


#5

The classical example of meme card is serpenti. 7/4 frenzy is damn powerful if it attacks. Even scary. But there’s almost no way to make it work with lots of ways to avoid the devastating attack via hard removal, dispel, positioning and even minion-based removal. So, it is a meme…

But if it attacks…


#6

serpenti also has a glorious neck that cannot be rivaled by any other card :wink:


#7

Memes also almost directly translate to legendary neutral cards.
