Total Deck Rating
Sht deck cant do nothing vs face hunters/warrior/rogues 0 reliability on cards they all come in random and without early wildfire =defeat
In addition to Papa_Ge's and Keetopsina's comments below, I've made some more swaps to help with the large amounts of weapon based rogue/shaman decks and buff based paladin decks I've been facing.
-1 Rigged Faire Game for +1 C'Thun, the Shattered
-1 Potion of Illusion for +1 Devolving Missiles
-1 Ring Toss for +1 Acidic Swamp Ooze
I still find this to have ample draw, but better early game clear if you get overwhelmed. With so few minions, it's nearly impossible to have a meaningful proc of Potion of Illusion, so C'thun is more than making up for it in late game value with the added benefit of clears early.
Im finding a lot better luck with this deck personally taking out Rigged Faire Game and substituting in a C'Thun, the Shattered. Not exactly the most budget choice, but it made help control the board and push damage more efficiently as well as bringing in an easier way to corrupt Ring Toss with the body parts.
Holy crap, that addition worked so well for me. Just won two games BECAUSE of that addition. The Ring Toss thing you mentioned happened because of a C'Thun card and in the other game I just kept a clean board because of the kill a minion along with the 6/6 taunt PLUS the 3 damage to all minions. Great suggestion. :) xD Not to mention, the first game I played with this list before I read the comments - I would've milled cards if I'd of ever played it. hahahaha
I'd recommend swapping out Potion of Illusion for just about anything.Sure, when it works it can cause chaos. But you have only 5 minions in your deck. 2 of which are 9 and 10 mana. If they don't get removed, it's game over anyway so no need to potion them.The remaining 3 minions are very likely to get removed before you get a chance to play the potion. If you play it on the same turn, you'll need 9 mana which will probably be needed for some other tempo plays.
The other suspect is Ring Toss. There are only 3 cards that can activate the corrupt effect. I'd rather have a card I need than a chance to hopefully discover the adequate secret.
Very nice deck tbh currently at D5 and working , pretty complex also this is not a deck for someone that just wanna rush though , you need to play around the enemy board and do proper mulligan , get those Incanter's Flow early and you are golden , you also wanna keep Flurry (Rank 1) on starting hand when facing aggro decks and Wildfire
This is probably the worst deck i have played so far. Since i built it, i've played 15 and won 2. This is no match for tempo decks of ANY kind. Secret paladin, Murloc shaman, Modified face hunter, weapon rogue. They all smash this deck. I was very excited to play this after watching the video. Now i've wasted 3k on dust and will probably never play it again. If your reading this, do not build this deck unless you can afford it. No minion mage is so much better. Utter Garbage.
I'm struggling with Rogue weapons.
exactly this, every deck matchup is really solid but against weapons we have literally no defense cuz of no face freeze
Secret Paladins with Oh My Yogg are no picnic either...
2 counterspell instead of Portal & Barrier should give it more control... One offs are a bit sucky, rigged fair game seems hard to justify with all the draw already in.
IMHO Ring Toss is really hard to activate
I use solarian instead and it works better for me.
Love the deck, unfortunately it doesnt work against Demon Hunter at all.
I run a mordresh board-based deck with literally no spells but wildfire that i can fetch with starscryer. It also has a watchpost package and many spell generating minions like that 5 mana ethereal, wand thief and babbling book. It does reasonably well against everything. Though i have yet to face secret paladin with it, i have 100% winrate with it in 10 games or so
Looks interesting. Still busting open packs to see what cards I get/need. I am expecting to have to craft Mordesh or Alextrasza,
Alexstrasza the Life-Binder is core set. you don't need to craft it.
Very cool deck indeed. I have removed the Netherwind Portal and added Mask of C'Thun. It gives a lot more reach and often sets you up for a kill with either Mordresh or Alexstrasza. Climbed from gold 8 to diamond 10 in 2 hours with it.
I like this deck, good replace for Varden?
I don't think there is one. His board clear is pretty instrumental to the deck.
