Midrange deck playing around discarding and necromancy.

Dwember Puzzle Box and Indoril Mastermind will discard cards. The point of the deck then is to apply pressure with big bodied creatures to maintain a favourable health deficit to make Black Worm Necromancer usable and to make space for Falkreath Defiler to hit the board to bring someone back (possibly with the help of Quicksilver Crossbow).

The goal then is to discard Swiftwing Dragon and Aspect of Hircine, be aggressive with cards like Haunting Spirit, Young Mammoth, and Blood Dragon, then use one of the necromancers to bring those big discarded charge creatures for a sudden huge burst of damage. In a perfect scenario this could be a turn 5 or 6 (4 or 5 with Ring) swing with an 8 or 9 cost card adding 5-5 or 6-6 to the board able to attack immediately.

Jiub is here to combo with Quicksilver Crossbow because fuck yeah Jiub.

Mundus is here to give Falkreath Defiler charge so he can actually do something. It's also nice for giving random creatures lethal for use with Quicksilver Crossbow.

Note that a strong turn 6 and 7 could be playing Gortwog gro-Nagorm for him to inevitably be instantly removed, followed by a high skill Black Worm Necromancer bringing him back, respectively. Roll high or don't roll at all.

Note that for crafting purposes none of the legendary rarity cards included are necessary to use the deck.

Jiub can be best replaced by Shadowmere, Mudcrab Merchant, Dragon Cult Ghost, or even Fabricate.

Mundus is best replaced by either Bleakcoast Troll or Restless Templar (that healing is no joke when using Black Worm Necromancer).

I don't think there's a good 5 mana replacement for Blood Dragon, so I'd recommend replacing them with the above mentioned cards.

Gortwog, Almalexia, Aspect of Hircine, and possibly the previously mentioned Blood Dragons could all be replaced with Cradlecrush Giant, Triumphant Jarl, Night Shadow, or Belligerent Giant.

Cool! Looking forward to your results. The easiest replacement for Blood Dragon is Stronghold Eradicator.
Tested it out in both ranked and casual it is a very fun deck' i think the problems it has is little removal and black worms effect cannot be controlled when i was playing it brang out a normal jiub and managed to get the opponent down to one health had jiub lethal but they conceded. I had a lot of fun playing with this deck. Also do you think merchants camel could replace the dwemer box or is it to slow.

Yeah since the deck is trying to maintain pressure or at least board presence the removal is lacking as result. The deck's removal currently comes from Quicksilver Crossbow (especially in conjunction with Ald Velothi Assassin), lucky Mundus triggers, and just generally smashing your creatures into the enemy. The other way to keep up with fast decks is to extend your resources with necromancy.

Merchant Camel is definitely too slow, but you're welcome to try it out and see if you can prove me wrong! Since it's important to stay ahead on health in order to use Black Worm Necromancer I think the tempo loss of playing Camel is too great, because if they can edge you out of health by turn 6 as result then any Black Worm Necromancers in hand become dead cards, which makes it much harder to bring the stuff you discarded with Camel back, defeating the purpose of using it at all.
