is it me or the names become weirder and weirder?
Thx for your feedback !
This is a control deck, with usual game plan: lots of removal, and even more life healing. Then reach the end game with N’Zoth and the Prelate. N’Zoth will bring back another wall of AOE basically. And a second Prelate you can upgrade thanks to the additional spells of Liadrin.
Healing is very important in the deck, that why I chose Abomination and Ghoul which work well with Lightforged Blessing (Sally as well).And with Equality spells of course, for primary role.
Nozari is a second Reno basically.
You can throw away your ressources because there is enough value and cards draw, which I wasn’t sure when building. Finley’s Warlock hero power is interesting versus slow decks for this purpose.
The deck manages to win many games, sometimes you don’t even need to reach the fatigue to win with Prelate.Trion and Murgur Primes are good menaces already with N'Zoth.Regarding beating top meta decks, I don't think it's a worth trying to compete, with this kind a semi meme. However, I like your idea: the Sporeling is very original. Karkhut and Applebaum are good, yes, but I wanted to try something different than the usual N'Zoth package.
Coliseum is not that bad for an AOE, but always situational. Same Aedric is very surprising, sometimes it makes a very bad board for the opponent who needs to get rid of his minions to make new place. But I wouldn’t recommend to craft those.
I'll try to mess around and experiment with this deck again after barrens comes up since I have most of the cards anyway (also I didn't consider the ghoul/abomination+lightforged synergy)
If I somehow end up having spare dust I'll likely craft enter the coliseum but I wasn't really considering Aedric thb, maybe whave of apathy can suffice if that effects is needed (although it's not permanent)
The "main" card I'm currently missing is Nozari (and Sally/burnbristle but I think they can be replaced)
And kangor too, idk how Key these 2 are to the deck
this...this is the deck I've been trying to make work for a while and never quite managed to have it function properly
I have a couple questions/thins to say tho
I like the addition of prelate and I honestly was never sure about enter the coluseum as I wasn't playing when the card was relevant but if you think it can work well I'll probably craft it
I don't understand why you prefer ghoul and abomination to something like a karthut or an applebaum to heal you (now that I think about it...are they here to activate eqality and libram easily?)
also you may need some anti big priest tech, I found an honestly surprising amount of success in that matchup (and vs other resurrect decks like renolock) by using sylas and the combo of "infectious sporeling+broom" that can be tutored easily by crystology
