This is an updated version of what I've been streaming and took to Brad's tournament. Basically I've just swapped mantikora for cliff racer.

The goal can be summed up very simply. Use movement, cover and shackles to win the field lane. Use calms to prevent your opponent from coming to the field lane to oppose you, done.

This is geared for prophecy praetorian mage because that deck tilts the hell out of me. Realistically the 3 baroness should instead be filling out the 2-of's but she helps the mage matchup a lot by giving you a lot of control over when you break runes rather than just SMOrc.

The deck is designed mainly to prey on prophecy mage since very few of our cards care how big our opponents creatures are. We're full of lethals and hard removal and field lane control and buffed taunts still don't fight a calm well. You generally want to attack face turns 5-10 or so, gain a crushing board lead and then slowly break runes while clearing off each prophecy. Don't risk runes you can't answer if you have a dominating board, most of them cut ice storm/dawns wrath and can't recover a bad board state if you attack carefully. Don't break zero runes though or else they'll eventually overrun you with buffs.

We have a big, big weakness to orcs and prophecy battlemage because neither of those decks care about executes which is our main form of defense.

I think this is very out of touch. prophecy Mage in the current meta is not in legend that much ATM. Spellsword is a heavy hitter now.

You're definitely right, this deck is a little outdated these days and needs to evolve into a proper aggressive or control shell rather than the halfway praetorian hate it currently is.

Used this list tonight (-3 Baroness, +1 The Black Dragon & +2 Brotherhood Slayer) to go from rank 1 to legend at 8-1. Thanks Link!
