This is one of the few midrange decks you’d see me or anyone playing.

Reached legend in a few days with minimal effort. Currently rank #15. Seems to do well in the current meta. Grisly Gourmet and Morag Tong combo together and are the MVP often winning the early game. After that Cloudrest comes at 4, Cliffracer at 5 and Soulrest combo at 6... it is usually is too much for them to deal with. I run an assassin version that does comparable but can tank late game against big threats, where this has hard removal. Each has a ton of reach. Aggro will often go all in on one lane and draw prophecy so you don't necessarily need to make trades. Giant snake will shut down an entire lane and is completely unexpected, you can then go face for the win or force them to make trades. Vrs control they cant keep up with the amount of threats you put on the board. The high amount of prophecy makes this deck more likely to stay ahead.

I’ve been experimenting with 6 drops to see which I like best and you’ll notice quite a few good options. These all combo nicely with Soulrest.

- added crushing blow specifically for Cornerclub Gambler but has come in handy many times otherwise. Can replace with BH slayer for extra prophecy

- added Hulking Scalon and found he makes a good finisher with Monk Stike + Swift Strike.

Monk has been my favorite since I started playing around 2 years ago. Used to rock a Namira deck before drain vitality and mantikora were nerfed, then a master of thieves deck with the curse package. Seeing skulk get nerfed was one of the hardest things I’ve experienced in this game. I must say that this is the most satisfying deck I’ve played since.

I netdecked it the first day it was posted and checked back regularly because it was appreciatively updated. I’ve used the backbone of it climb from 9 to currently 4. Excited to use it to push legend in April. Changes I’ve made to suit my play style:

Added a third shadow shift and Bruma. Took out cutpurse.

Don’t run Brotherhood slayer, instead left in third Eastmarch and cut down to 50.

Kept third Javelin instead of Vivec

Kept Thadon and cut Giant snake

And lastly swapped Scalon with Miraak

Sorry for the long post, it is my first on this site after all, but just wanted to express my appreciation for the deck. Makes me feel like monk has a fighting chance again.

Awesome glad you like. I have come to what I think is a final version of it for myself. I can comment on your changes.

I don’t like 3 Eastmarch because I never want 2 early on especially against the ring. Same thing with Shadow Shift.. it will often be a dead card in hand and with 2 it will set you back for sure. BH is a prophecy and want to keep it high plus he trades well. I also took out Cutpurse, keeping him alive was too much effort and he doesn’t trade well from prophecy. I would highly recommend snake, it will win games you have no business winning. Thadon is no good because changing lanes is one of the things this deck does to win. Vivic and Hulking Scalon is up in the air, I rarely need them but can be a clutch play.. one things for sure they make huge finishers.
Yeah as soon as I started climbing rank 4, I ran into a lot of the problems listed below. So I switched to the previous version, card for card, and started to get somewhere. Never been great at deck building, so I’m just going to trust the professionals from now on. Literally had giant snake squeeze out a win against an item BM that was going downhill fast.

I’m excited to give this final version a spin. I really like the inclusion of execute. It always felt like I was waiting for turn 7 to combo gourmet with Cloudrest. Excited to see if the new expansion will have anything to improve on the list. Thanks again!
Updated yet again with 2X Shadowmaster, lots of control decks on the ladder. This is a fun card.
