Challenge 4-8 : Budget deck for ya

Postby Brandon822 » 23 Jul 2011, 17:09

Beat it with this burn deck:

.1254 4 Incinerate
.145 4 Lightning Bolt
.1690 4 Ghitu Slinger
.288 4 Ember Hauler
.1952 4 Avalanche Riders
.299 3 Blood Moon
.164 23 Mountain
.230 1 Sol Ring
.1417 4 Flame Javelin
.593 4 Chain Lightning
.1121 1 Pyroclasm
.395 1 Ali from Cairo
.274 3 Cunning Sparkmage

Ali From Cairo saved me against soldiers and some other match. I first tried with Blood Knight because I kept loosing against soldiers, but they were pretty useless in most matches. I changed them for Cunning Sparkmage. I also kept loosing against vampires, but didn't meet them in winning round.

Here's the list I used, according to the Rarity Icon. I know Primeval Titan and Wurmcoil Engine aren't exactly "pauper" cards, but I was surprised when they were available. Anyway... That's the last challenge for me. :D

4 Joraga Treespeaker
4 Llanowar Elves
4 Priest of Titania
3 Overrun
4 Harmonize
20 Forest
3 Rancor
4 Primeval Titan
4 Wall of Blossoms
4 Blanchwood Armor
4 Wurmcoil Engine
2 Fyndhorn Elves

The fast R deck I used. Gorilla Shaman may seem kind of strange but it helps against the Black Vise Burn and against Juzam Djinn deck
4x Gorilla Shaman
4x Lightning Bolt
4x Searing Blaze
4x Price of Progress
4x Vulshok Refugee
4x Fists of Anvil
4x Rockslide Elemental
4x Slith Firewalker
24 x Mountain

Simple enough - burn everything on the way, let the big beaters win.
Vulshok Refugee is against the r burn all decks
and it won me the mirror :P
Fists of the anvil is like 4 to face for 1R or removal with the rockslide elemental.
Won on 3rd try, where at first the game crashed at last round (vista :<)
on second got pwned by slivers
won on third, after pwning slivers twice :)
Mirror was hard, but managed to outrace my opponent.

Cheating thru a bug is still cheating ! ;)
However, thanx to this I've fixed the rarity values for both cards.

- Long term task: inserting all the good stuff I left out from the "Golden Years" mod

I know, I know... I'm sorry. But if it serves as any consolation, I already beat it again with a legal Kithkin Weenie deck. [-o<

Beat this handily with a white weenie deck - the hardest part by far was the mirror matchup on round 9, since that Glorious Anthem really gives the comp's weenies a head start. I lost several times on that round, and the last time I finally got two Voice of All out, one to attack and one to defend, and sealed the deal with Grafted Wargear on one of them.

.1414 4 Knight of Meadowgrain
.240 4 Swords to Plowshares
.188 23 Plains
.588 4 Path to Exile
.1288 4 Goldmeadow Harrier
.1236 4 Leonin Skyhunter
.1458 2 Wizened Cenn
.1464 1 Cloudgoat Ranger
.1543 2 Voice of All
.983 4 Grafted Wargear
.927 2 Kor Skyfisher
.563 2 Leonin Relic-Warder
.489 4 Squadron Hawk


The Grafted Wargear really helps due to its low 3 mana/0 equip cost and the throwaway nature of my units. Getting a 2/2 flyer out on turn 2 and Grafted Wargear out on turn 3 means a four-turn clock for the comp to find answers -and if he kills my flyer, there will usually be a replacement guy available. The Squadron Hawks are also quite helpful in giving card advantage, especially when my opening hand is light on creatures.

This deck proved faster than most of the threatening decks - vampires, slivers, zombies, relentless rats, etc. - and only lost a few times against the soldiers deck and the kithkin deck. I will try to improve to see if it can fare well against some of the other challenges; suggestions are appreciated :)

I made short work of the challenge with this skullclamp stompy deck. Luckily the AI had a poor draw and was not smart enough to sacrifice the Briar Shields in the mirror match, otherwise that one would have been tough.

.2275 2 Elvish Spirit Guide
.4293 4 Land Grant
.3990 4 Rancor
.97 4 Giant Growth
.2989 4 Briar Shield
.2908 4 Quirion Ranger
.3599 4 Skyshroud Elite
.11540 4 Garruk's Companion
.1256 3 River Boa
.1307 3 Mire Boa
.91 15 Forest
.1699 2 Uktabi Orangutan
.6733 4 Skullclamp
.3073 4 Rogue Elephant

Maybe I got fortunate, but this white weenies lifegain deck won the challenge for me on the 1st try:

.188 23 Plains
.1557 4 Soul Warden
.11694 4 Suture Priest
.11087 4 Ajani's Pridemate
.10984 4 Lone Missionary
.1413 4 Knight of Meadowgrain
.1457 4 Wizened Cenn
.7264 4 Kami of Ancient Law
.12462 3 Seraph of Dawn
.1452 2 Spectral Procession
.240 4 Swords to Plowshares

Kami of Ancient Law helped a lot against Glorious Anthem in the last duel (I got fortunate enough to get one in my 1st draw), and against Honor of the Pure and Tempered Steel in previous matches.

Also beat this with a white lifegain deck:

21 Plains
4 Serra Angel
4 Soul Warden
4 Ajani's Pridemate
4 Angel of Mercy
4 Crusader of Odric
4 Fiend Hunter
3 Cloudgoat Ranger
4 Gather the Townsfolk
4 Chastise
4 Swords to Plowshares

Watch out against faerys if they get shroud with scion it'll gonna be hardest, the mirror final match is pretty dangerous and long too.

Used a mono green aggro deck after only a couple tries and some explosive hands. Messed with a few choice one-of's and the actual numbers of enchantments etc can probably vary:

Forest x23
Pelakka Wurm x1
Garruk's Companion x4
Strangleroot Geist x4
Acidic Slime x1
Llanowar Elves x4
Bellowing Tanglewurm x1
Blanchwood Armor x3
Rancor x4
Trollhide x2
Skyshroud Claim x3
Harmonize x2
Beast Within x3
Giant Growth x4
Sol Ring x1

Another Elves build, heavy on lifegain and overrun. Made it on the first try with one close call against turbofog that had gone off for three turns with luminarch ascension. Blunt the Assault is janky, but useful against nutty AI alpha strikes, before cracking back ftw.


4 Overrun
4 Llanowar Elves
4 Fyndhorn Elves
4 Elvish Mystic
2 Elvish Promenade
4 Elvish Visionary
4 Elvish Warrior
4 Garruk's Companion
4 Essence Warden
4 Arbor Elf
2 Blunt the Assault
4 Wren's Run Vanquisher
16 Forest
