This list is a mid-range list that myself and others have had a lot of success with. It may look familiar, as it is similar in build and style to Justin Larson's "Tyrs for Giant Fears" list. Him and I have been talking off and on about the list, and have essentially settled on two versions. His version is geared toward beating aggressive decks, while mine is tailored a bit more for the control matches.

The primary things that set my list apart from Justin's list is the inclusion of Withered Hand Cultist and Blood Dragon. I have found that both of these cards can be difficult for control decks to deal with, and they both have quality stats for their Magicka cost as well. We still have tools for dealing with aggressive decks in the form of Hive Defender, Dawnstar Healer, Ravenous Hunger, and you can even use Underworld Vigilante for removal. Rift Thane also serves as a decent Guard if you are behind on health.

For the games against control decks, creatures with high stats really shine. Each one you play represents a significant threat, and this includes "The Four Horsemen" of Garnag, Dark Adherent, The Black Dragon, Tyr, and Reive, Blademaster. Believe it or not, Execute tends to shine more against control decks than aggressive decks. It kills pesky Ward creatures, and the new 2/5 Guard as well. Most aggressive decks favor high attack creatures, so Execute is often not as useful in that match.

Overall, this is a versatile list that I have been having fun playing on the ladder. Check out the video below to see the deck in action.

That's actually a good question. The one with the better draw? I'm not sure that my Cultists help in the match, but I think that Blood Dragon is stronger than Illusionist on face value. Illusionist for free after a Prophecy is a problem though. So really, it just depends on top-deck RNG in many ways. Officially, I'll go with whoever triggers Golden Saint.

Played from bottom of rank 5 to rank 4 with 7 wins in a row with this deck, it's really strong. Thanks for sharing Charm3r!
