OK so this is only a theory deck and never tested…. I also don’t plan on testing it and I am only posting to lay a foundation for someone who likes humans and discarding decks.
Inspired from FDL’s “Here be Elementalis” created during Call of the Crystal 1st expansion of Shadow Era. I decided to give it a little twist and blend it with the new Shatter Fates Expansion game mechanic, discard.
Prior to what I’ve previously thought Skervox may actually be a pretty good pairing with the ravagers. The below deck actually is a fairly good formula for potential success.
This deck seeks to emulate Zaladar with his infinite 3 damage sources. Majiya can be used similarly but with different class card the game plan is a bit different.
One of faction / tribe combinations that is never really talked about or discussed in Shadow Era is the Shadow Homunculus. There is a real strong synergy within the tribe dedicated to ally growth, discarding, and manipulates card from your hand and graveyards.
Haste is a powerful keyword. What makes it important is fact that you are guaranteed to use ally for attack or its ability at least once. This is very good given the plethora of control and burn cards in Shadow Era able to shut down your allies before they get the chance to do anything. Even if that ally dies next turn you had at least one use out of it, which can put you ahead in tempo more often than not. Boris already used this in DP but now with SF he got some new tools.
Key Cards: Fleet-footed Messenger, The King’s Pride
With SF and new cards that support undead tribe Moonstalker has become even more annoying. With stealth and damage reduction provided by Grave Resistance Moonstalker’s normally bad match ups are now significantly mitigated making him in my opinion tier 1 hero.
Key Cards: Grave Resistance, Gromm’s Whip
Gravebone can be played in so many ways. This is a defensive variant, making use of some new toys from Shattered Fates.
ETC had an internal thread about what breaks Zaladar and it got me interested in taking a different approach with Gravebone. Essentially I am basically wanting to recycle Deathbone as much as possible to keep a defensive presence and damage source on the board.
This one originally revolved around Corpse Shifter before evolving to current deck format.
Corpse Shifter – This guy is a monster. He can deal 3 damage to allies or hero with his ability, attack for 2 and the 6 health is nothing to sneeze at. He requires a lot of undead allies for ammo so this is a heavy allied build and we use SK to bring back the undead for continual spam. Continue reading
