This deck tries taking advantage of the new monthly reward card from December, "Ashlander Punisher". In so doing it became a mix of Pilfer Monk and Aggro Crusader, a synergy that works surprisingly well. Especially with cards like "Master of Thieves", "Haafingar Marauder", and "Crusader's Assault"- you can get some powerful plays going. The drawback is of course the minimum 75-card limit that comes with playing a House, making it harder to draw the most powerful combos.

But of course the deck doesn't rely on the difficult combos, (they're just very fun to pull of when you can). The deck is packed with relatively cheap creatures to populate the board with, along with options for buffing them, moving them and consistently dealing damage to your opponent whilst building a board of threats worth spending removal on.

The key word is "pressure". So long as you can be the aggressor and keep pressuring your opponent, this deck will perform well. Land on your back-foot and loose the offensive edge and you will have a bad time. It's therefore important to be sensible about your creature placement, maximizing your ability to draw cards, and subverting the expectations of your opponent by moving creatures, having a charge ready, give creatures an extra swing with Master of Thieves or immunity with Gavel of the Ordinator.

The deck is still young and will probably see some changes over the coming weeks, but out of the gate this has performed very well so far (at least in rank 5-4 on the ladder). Hope it does well for you too if you do try it out :)
