Trade only? : yes, you go first
Inspiring post, made me try to add a gunspire package into my quest warrior deck, average results so far but probably unique and really fun! A day before this post I was looking at gunspire and the mercenary and stroking my chin, pleased it was possible! Thanks!
I agree AramidX, wait till you have most combo pieces to use Tracking, but sometimes you have to search for cards to deal with Aggro or face damage to end the game, getting the combo every game isn't realistic. This deck does have enough power to win without Mecha'thun.
My deck below has tools to deal with more aggressive decks, and if they aren’t in my opening hand I think tracking is a great way to skip a few draws towards getting what you need. It was the same for more aggressive hunters when they were looking for the kill command to end the game.
Because my deck has combo pieces, I have to decide what my win condition will be before using them. If I can get all the way to Mecha’thun against a control warlock or warrior then I’ll wait until I’ve drawn most combo pieces before using them to burn down the last few cards in my deck.
Other times, if I feel like I’m falling behind in the game I’ll have to take a risk and go searching for the cards I need. I think players often hate the idea of losing good cards from their future draw, but it’s worth it sometimes to get the ascendency in the present.
Stitched tracker can often get me the minions I want from my deck right now, so I can play tracking without wrecking my win condition.
