SWORD OF A THOUSAND TRUTHS!

Come back to standard after a few years. 

Found this fun card,  Elwynn Boar, decided to build a deck using this!

After hundreds of games, testing all the combos I can think of, I finally reached legend from bronze with this version that is suitable for the current meta.

This is a super fun deck that requires you to count with your fingers!

Key card: Elwynn BoarDevouring Swarm

 The goal is simple, don't die, and use Devouring Swarm and Selective Breeder to create 7 boar.

Combo: 3 x Devouring Swarm  + 2 x Elwynn Boar or  2 x Devouring Swarm  + 3 x Elwynn Boar + one of minion/spells that give rush or does dmg to kill the boar.

MULLIGAN:  Devouring SwarmResizing PouchSelective BreederSphere of SapienceTracking

Devouring Swarm: This is the heart of this deck. You can use it to duplicate boars, and combo with other cards like Explosive Sheep to clear boards.

DUPLICATING BOARS:

Resizing Pouch there are only 4 ZERO cost cards, so your chance of getting  Devouring Swarm is 3 out of 4 or 75%.

if Resizin Pouch missed, take the poison, you can combo with Wound Prey to clear minions.

Teron Gorefiend on paper this card seems insanely good, but in real games, this card is just ok. It's too costly, and 4 health makes it hard to suicide. It would be insane if this is a 3/3 or 2/2/ card.

use these cards to suicide your boars: Animated BroomstickRocket AugmerchantWound Prey

Some opponents don't play minions at all, and there's nothing to swarm to, so sometimes I swap Royal Librarian with Magtheridon

Impatient Shopkeep and Rustrot Viper are for trading to find your combos, don't get baited to play it for tempo! (but sometimes against the aggro druid,  Impatient Shopkeep is a pretty good turn 3 play.)

 Best match-up: minion-based slow decks. priest, warlock, etc.

Quest mage:

  1. find your combos,  3 x Devouring Swarm  + 2 x Elwynn Boar or  2 x Devouring Swarm  + 3 x Elwynn Boarone of the 1 cost minion/spells that give rush or do dmg to kill the final boar.
  2. wait for them to complete the mage quest and drop the 7/7, then do your one-turn boar sword combo with 8 mana. Super fun!

Worst match up: shaman, they have many answers like hex.

 Cards I have tried, but too slow for current meta: 

Dire Frenzy, Warsong Wrangler, Northshire Farmer: too slow, and you want pigs at 1 health for easy suicide.
