Hey everyone,

I was hoping to start a discussion about what type of experimental decks people are trying out? I feel like I’ve kind of hit a wall in brewing a unique deck, and I could use a little inspiration from my fellow players?

In the spirit of sharing, I’ll start us off by sharing my favorite deck to play (I doubt it’s very original though): http://orbsccg.com/decks/v1kyzh

It’s a control deck that uses Sacrificial Altar as the primary win condition, but it can also clear the opponent’s threats and just win by hitting them with buffed minions.

So I’m curious about what everyone is trying out? Has anybody effectively used Purple in a non-mill deck? How are people solving problems with card draw without including Blue in their deck?

I made a Purple/Red burn deck where I intend to use some of the +AP/-HP purple cards as burn in addition to the red burn cards. It’s not a great deck, but it can be fun to play:

Also made a Yellow Knight Unity deck, utilizing River and Orb of Unity and having my only allies as knights. When I can pull the combo off it can be nasty.

The knights deck is a fun one. I have one similar.

Red/purple is interesting too. The win condition is straight direct burn damage with the red cards? Do you find that you run out of cards too quickly?

Yes, it is meant to deal direct damage with the purple cards providing some control damage.

I guess u know my Blue black yellow deck http://orbsccg.com/decks/a7hzed.

Its a long game control deck that, with luck, can beat all kinds of strategy.

Well, you are talking about purple decks, i have a good red blue purple deck http://orbsccg.com/decks/51qezh

I made this one to try beat combo decks before it could use grave uprisal. its a kind of aggro control deck. the main goal is run out opponents hand.

That Blue Red Purple deck looks really annoying to play against. That definitely looks like a fun one!

How’s destoryer of dreams working for you? I’ve been trying pretty hard to get that card to work for a long time. It’s really difficult to land a hit with him, and by the time I set up an ideal combo to make sure he hits, I’ve already fallen way behind or he gets taken out by removal.

I’ve seen it used with great success when paired with Mist Machine. If you can get both in play while your opponent has minimal cards in hand (or even 0) you have the game pretty much won.

Mist machine is definitely a card I under utilize. I’ll have to incorporate it into more of my blue decks.

I didn’t think to use Destoryer of Dreams as a way to close a game though. I’ve always thought to use it in conjunction with an aggressive tactic. You’ve just given me a new way to use it.

I do wonder what other cards can be good that I just haven’t figured out the right way to use yet. Things like Adept Warrior, Yangi the Velk, Storm Elemental, Energetic Wonder etc. all seem extremely inefficient for their cost. I end up using the same old cards over and over again because I lack originality.

Getting my ass handed to me in a game with Salon as we speak. Tactical Incursion is tough to play against.
