The Question of “What are the best decks?” has come up more than once, and after having the game released for a little over a year, I figured it was worth starting a discussion of “what are the strongest tournament decks?”
Generally speaking, I think Necromancy is the strongest spec, and Black is the Strongest Starter.
I’ll edit this post as I have time to add more thoughts on each of these “top tier” decks I’ve listed, but I’m curious to hear other’s thoughts.
This deck is incredibly strong. The amount of early game pressure Fencers and Vandy can bring (along with Black Starter) is unparalleled in my mind. It can combo into so many things, too. Garth can fetch Grounded Guide to make your fencers hyper-buff, River can bring Dancers to combo off your Dark Pact, Soul Stone can turn Star-Crossed Starlets into hasty wrecking balls, Graveyard and Maestro give you free replays on the haste… Not to mention just playing for Metamorphosis or demons (TerrasQ + Discord anyone?) or just skeleton horde as alternate win lines… This deck I find very user-friendly and oppressive to play against. It can deal with everything but upgrades, which makes the Growth Tech 2 decks (especially the hasty ones like [Blood]/Strength/Growth) its greatest weakness, but even then having Discord does great work against the weanies like Bird’s Nest that deck uses as fuel for Might of Leaf and Claw
Which do you think are the three strongest decks?
- Mono Black
- Something else (post below and I’ll add it)
