This list is a "budget" version of another list that I have done a deck spotlight on. I'm posting it separately because I often hear that new players are looking for budget decks to climb the ladder with, and this will make it easier for them to find. You can find the other list here.

The core of this list is split into two key categories. There are cards that represent "direct damage," and there are cards that buff your other cards. The only card that doesn't fit either category that is in the list right now is Earthbone Spinner.

Direct damage can come in the form of actions like Lightning Bolt, summon effects like the one on Sharpshooter Scout, or creatures with Charge like Battlerage Orc. These are intended to do damage directly to your opponent whenever possible. I'm not saying that you never trade, but you will be attacking your opponent more often than not. Since the damage is constantly coming from your hand, it makes it harder for your opponent to react to it. New Skyrim additions Shield Breaker and Stormcloak Vanguard are very welcome in this list.

The "buff" cards are those that are meant to enhance the damage of your other cards. Cards like Northwind Outpost and Orc Clan Captain increase the damage of your Charge creatures. Dare Rebirth, a new addition from Skyrim, allows creatures with Charge to effectively attack twice. You can also use it to trigger Afflicted Alit, Earthbone Spinner, or even Sharpshooter Scout in a pinch.

The important part about piloting this deck is to learn when to trade. There are certain cards that you can't leave on the board without a plan. Dawnstar Healer, for example, can really cause this list some issues. Killing it is often the same as doing six or nine extra damage to your opponent simply by preventing the healing it would have done. Creatures with Drain are often a priority as well. In most other cases, it is actually better to just attack your opponent. This deck has some crazy burst potential, and you have to trust in it. It's going to feel weird, and the play style will not work for everyone. If you have played Suicide Red from Magic the Gathering, it is very similar to that.

If you want to see a budget version of this list, you can check it out here.

Hello CHARM3R. In the main deck, you replaced a few cards. Do not you think that here, too, you need to replace Corsair Ship and Dark Rebirth on Carmlon Hero?
