20 Wins in a row proof
The idea of the deck is to ramp your mana like crazy and then just explode with sheer power of your win conditions. If everything fails, you still have Yogg as a fall back plan. Since the deck is full of spells, the outcome of Yogg is usually super good for you. Against some Aggro decks the deck is sometimes too slow depending on the draw, but the odds are at least 50-50 most of the time.
Here I list some very good openings, you should try to go for:
- Wild Growth into Mire Keeper
- Wild Growth into The Coin + Nourish
- Innervate + The Coin + Mire Keeper
- The Coin + Wild Growth into Innervate + Nourish
You want to gain mana as fast as possible. When I started playing this deck I was afraid of dying often and used Mire Keeper to have an extra 2-2 instead of a crystal. However, in 90% of the early game plays the mana crystals are the way to go! You big threads turn around the game so quickly that you want the ramp!
I like to mulligan with this deck very risky, since it can snowball really hard. Often times I will not even keep Wrath or Living Roots against potentially aggressive opponents, because Innervate and Wild Growth are just so much better.
- Always Keep: Wild Growth, Innervate
- Conditional: If you have Wild Growth + The Coin or Innervate you can keep Nourish or Mire Keeper. See section Mana Combos above. Against Shaman and Warlock: Living Roots.
- It's ok to keep Wrath or Living Roots against faster decks, if you have mana acceleration against faster decks.
- It's ok to keep extra card draw or combos like Fandral Staghelm + Raven Idol, if you have mana acceleration against slower decks.
- Replacements for legendaries:
- Why no Savage Roar?
- The version of this deck runs an insane amount of mana acceleration. 2x each Mire Keeper, Innervate, Wild Growth, Nourish and to some extent Raven Idol as it can give you the others. Therefore, the consistency in ramping is super high! You will be able to play very expensive threats very fast and consistently. If I found myself with a full board where Savage Roar truly shines, I usually win anyway. If there is no board, I don't want Savage Roar. For me this card was an inconsistent finisher in the deck and I replaced the one copy with a second Nourish which has been working wonders for me.
- Keep in mind that your opponent does not know that you are not running Savage Roar and he/she will usually play around it anyway! Another advantage of not running a copy ;).
