On Saturday the 13th September, at 2 pm GMT+0, 16 people gathered on the IRC channel #tournament in order to take part in the Warriors of the Blue Phoenix challenge #47. The Warriors of The Blue Phoenix guild host a tournament every weekend with various rules, which is “the best way to get crystals and test your skills”.
I have not one, but two decks for you today from the finalist of this tournament. In First Place came A1 Peithoson, who was playing A1 Vyz’s discard Zaladar deck, a very popular deck choice at the moment, which aims to benefit from discarding cards from your hand and deck. In Second Place was ETC Xander Spitfire, who was running “Victor Troll Deck”, a deck of his own creation. This deck is a beat down deck, in which you attempt to spam as many allies as possible. It also attempts to make use of Nathanias the people champion.
Deck 1- Vyz’s discard Zaladar
This deck is one of the most popular Quick Match (QM) decks at the moment. As you can see, it abuses cards like Brimstone Devourer, Falseblood Cutlist, and Living Armor. Essentially, you use Brimstone Devourere as the discard option for Falseblood Cultist who will also draw two new cards, or with Living Armour to create a hasted 4/4 ally. You can use Living Armor as an armor to block some damage before conversion (after the next update, it will be nerfed so if you block it’s attack goes down instead of its health when the armour loses durability). The deck also runs some common elemental deck cards such as Ley Line Nexus for weapons and armour, Mind Control and Soul Reaper, to get the final boost to Hero health to buy turns when you need them.
Deck 2- Xander Spitfire’s Victor Troll Deck
This is not a particularly popular or typical deck at the moment, and was mainly just a deck made for fun. The idea of this deck is to play as many allies a turn as possible, and beat your opponent down with your allies. Ravens Gambit is an auto include in Victor Decks, as when you have enough SE to use your ability, you can bring an ally down to 1 health and return a Gambit to your hand, play it, kill the ally and draw 2 cards.
