Hello and welcome to the Team Rocket. My name is Le Dawg, I'm in charge of this organization bent upon bad manners and stealing cards.
Want to start your criminal activity ? No ?! Take a look to this, it will change your mind. Or will it control it ?
This deck has one single goal : Steal your opponents favorites toys to break them on his own face.
As you can see, I changed the deck list to go on a Reno Jackson /Raza the Chained deck, including Shadowreaper Anduin. The first reason is he really have a "Toystealer Anduin" style and can help us to control and harass in late, and because of our bad early, Raza and Reno can help us to survive a lot.
So I played with this deck during 2 days and it is so funny and so strong, god, I think the deck is perfect now.
There is just a little variation : At the right of the page you can see the Geist version of the deck.
FROZEN THRONE UPDATE
First thing to say : We were expecting for our lord and savior Archbishop Benedictus, here he is ! Eternal Servitude is the playable ressurect we were expecting, and we have also Spirit Lash as a clear option. With Gnomeferatu, we can also play with Kabal Courier to try to get one. Embrace Darkness can be very funny too but can be easily countered :/ Same problem for Devour Mind, it gives us 1 more card than Thoughtsteal but the mana cost is bad.
I'm very disappointed by Shadowreaper Anduin ... But I suppose it can be used as a late game board control option and face damage source..
The Lich King and Arfus (that you can rez with Eternal Servitude ) could fit in our deck : The weapon and the Death Grip are the best options for us, but the other spells to control the board are very nice, and with Archbishop Benedictus we can deal with this self-milling effect
UN'GORO UPDATE :
Great extension : Crystalline Oracle will replace Mind Vision because it get you value on the board for the same effect. You can duplicate a spell with Shadow Visions or a Sylvanas with Mirage Caller. With the deathrattles we have, Spiritsinger Umbra can fit very well to the deck. Curious Glimmerroot can also be added but you can fail at the discover and get nothing, this is why I don't play it.
OLD GODS UPDATE
Nothing amazing to improve the deck, but add 3 nice cards which fit with our concept and can make replacements. We have Forbidden Shaping , a card we can play anytime if we are in an emergency and need a minion on the board. Shifting Shade is really good, and Herald Volazj can duplicate Sylvanas or some stolen minions ! But N'Zoth, the Corruptor, if you play with 2 Shifting Shade + Sylvanas, is quite amazing !
LEAGUE OF EXPLORERS UPDATE
The Toy Stealer is more powerful than never, with Entomb and Excavated Evil we are now able to face any type of decks (except the mill decks) if the Gods of RNG are on our sides. You can see my current version of the deck at the right of this page, the Recombobulator can be trade with a Crazed Alchemist, a second Faceless Manipulator or one of the legendaries from the list at the bottom of this page !
CHEAP VERSION OF THE DECK (If you have 0 Legendaries)
Now let's see all the cards which can fit with this play style
- Mind Control Essential
- Entomb Essential
- Shadow Madness OR Potion of Madness Essential + Great combo with Youthful Brewmaster or Recombobulator
- Cabal Shadow Priest Essential
- Sylvanas Windrunner Essential
- Mind Control Tech Essential can combo with Dirty Rat
- Kezan Mystic Sadly, this card is useless if the opponent has no secrets. You can put it on the board to offer it as a tribute to your angry opponent.
- Embrace Darkness
- Thoughtsteal Essential or Devour Mind
- Mind Vision Essential
- Crystalline Oracle and Shifting Shade
- Mindgames Essential
- Faceless Manipulator
- Archbishop Benedictus Late game card but awesome
- Lorewalker Cho (Explanations at the bottom)
- Recombobulator Return the toy to the store and trade it for a new one.
- Youthful Brewmaster The toy is damaged, has a cool battlecry or want to go back to his owner after the Shadow Madness ? The Youthful Brewmaster is one the most useful card of the deck !
- Shrinkmeister OR Pint-Size Potion Can combo with the Cabal Shadow Priest and most of your spells.
- Crazed Alchemist or Confuse Same than the Shrinkmeister
- Confuse Can be an option, but I don't like it
- Mirage Caller Combo with Deathrattles
- Skulking Geist Destroy the enemy cards, essential for us, except if you want to play with 1 mana spells.
- Excavated Evil This card is AMAZING, it will be a dead card for your opponent because you never play toys, and if he use it to kill the toys you stole from him, you will be able to use it again for kill more toys !
- Shadow Word: Death Can combo with Sylvanas Windrunner for a 8 mana Mind Control
- Shadow Word: Pain You can't steal it ? DESTROY IT
- Holy Nova You're the new master of these toys. Reward your slaves and punish your ennemies.
- Lightbomb Clean up the playground
- Spirit Lash Clean option
- Lightwell Can heal you in early and tank some damages
- Kabal Courier Awesome answer generator
- Shadow Visions Awesome for a " no duplicate " deck
- Eater of Secrets To mill annoying secrets
From the cheap deck, if we remove 1 Recombobulator, 1 Crazed Alchemist and 1 (or 2) Kezan Mystic, you can add 3 or 4 legendaries to your deck. Sylvanas Windrunner is a must have, but let's see the other options :
About Lorewalker Cho
When you get some toys with the Thoughtsteal and already used most of your enslaving spells, Cho can be really interesting.
- You can copy a lot of spells
- Your ennemy will focus him like if he has a taunt effect
- Your ennemy will try to never use a spell, and during the lategame, you can use a Youthful Brewmaster to send Lorewalker Cho back in your hand, cast a spell like Thoughtsteal and then you summon him back.
- Use it to block your opponent and kill it with your Crazed Alchemist when you need to use a spell.
Other good legendaries you can use
- Brann Bronzebeard
- Herald Volazj
- Emperor Thaurissan
- Confessor Paletress
- Elise Starseeker
- Elise the Trailblazer
- Spiritsinger Umbra
- Reno Jackson
- N'Zoth, the Corruptor
- The Lich King
- Shadowreaper Anduin
