Variax Lilithe Decklist (30 Dec 2016)

Variax Lilithe Decklist

This deck is pretty crazy. It’s still a work in progress, but this deck performed pretty well for me at the end of the season. Typically, Ooz/Bloodtear/Flameblood serve as early game bodies to contest mana tiles while you try to push out a Bloodmoon Priestess or Tiger. Early Cryptographer is fine too, bodies for Deathwatch/Ritual Banishing and pings for Punish. Spectral Blade is good vs Scintilla, Makantor, Dioltas, you name it, it kills almost everything 5 and under while softening the blow to your general. By turn 5 you should be able to ramp Variax out at least 85% of games – definitely hold one Variax and up to two Darkfire Sacrifice during mulligan. General rule of thumb, if you can get Variax out this turn and you won’t lose the game by doing so, get Variax out (almost always). After the first one is out, it’s a 7-mana 7/7. Save additional Darkfires for Bloodmoons/Shadowdancers/Tugers or use them if you really need the 7/7 body, but your wraithlings should serve as the bulk of your trade fodder while you heal with Dancer and generate an unanswerable stream of 5/5s with Bloodmoon + bloodborn spell. While playing this deck, study the consequences of even and odd mana costs on cards versus your available mana – as player 1, you get your BBS on even mana turns (starting at 4); as player two, on odd mana turns (starting at 5). Think ahead based on when your Variax is dropped (for example, if you drop Variax on 5, you want to BBS on 6, so you want a 3-mana play to go with it, and a 5-mana play to go with your BBS on turn 8).

Ruby Rifter is the Real MVP / Duelyst 72

Ruby Rifter is the Real MVP

Gotta hand it to the Ruby Rifter, I did not see that face slam coming! Neither did my opponent, apparently. Turns out Aspect of the Drake is alright, who knew?

thanks for watching guys!

Midrange Faie Duelyst Decklist

With the holidays over, I’ve finally been playing a little Duelyst again. With Rise of the Bloodborn here, I immediately wanted to start playing with Sleet Dasher and all the powerful new Vanar spells. Cryptographer is especially neat in Faie – your opponent can literally never not play around Warbird, lest they risk being punished. Aspect of the Drake, Hearth-Sister, Ruby Rifter, and Dark Nemesis have been coming together to make some dank plays. So far, I am thinking about cutting the L’kians. Maybe the Grove Lion too. I’m still testing it but I may just add more Ruby Rifters to the deck. We’ll see. Thanks for checking out my decklist, guys. I’ll keep you posted here with the updates as it evolves.

Pile o’ Junk – Junkestein

Gaga has created a monstrosity, “Junkestein,” to stop Bad RNG Squad! To make matters worse, Junkestein brings with him racks on racks on racks of healers! What can be done to escape this predicament? All hope is nearly lost when Junkestein defeats Bad RNG Squad’s Mecha…

RNG Party of the Century / Hearthstone 33

The RNG Party of the Century!

This tavern brawl features both players squaring off with decks full of portals. Naturally, the RNG is crazy! But there is also room for some finesse and we find ourselves in a lot of very neat situations. Unfortunately, Deathwing turns up and completely ruins the fun! Or does he add to it? Hope you enjoy the games!

The Concrete Subject

Ordinary citizens are being turned to stone by the Gravel Lord! Something must be done about this, and it looks like Bad RNG Squad will be the ones to do it.

SMOrc or Trade?! / Duelyst 71

SMOrc or Trade?!

I decided to showcase this gauntlet game because it has a crucial pivotal point where my opponent decides to go full aggression. Recognizing that I’m probably more optimized for that tactic, and that I have no consistent swing options in the deck if I fall too far behind, I decide to call my opponent’s bluff and attempt to zerg her down more quickly than her efforts can reciprocate.
