A very well met to all of you. Today’s short article is for all of the Johnnys and to some extend also for the Timmys as the decks I will show you involve a lot of huge creatures too. It is not really fit for the Spikes out there though, they just have to continue playing Midrange Shaman, Miracle Rogue and N’Zoth Paladin. You don’t know what I am talking about? Take a look at this MTG article here. In short there are three type of players: Timmy, Johnny and Spike. For Timmy it is all huge minions and huge spells, if he wins, which is less common for his style of play, he wants to win with all these big bombs. Johnny cares about winning, but he wants to win with style! Spike is the tryhard player. All that is important is winning, no matter how boring it gets. Well, we got that out of the way. I can really encourage you to read the full article, I enjoyed it a lot.
I will show off some off-meta decks today that are either OTK decks, like Firebat’s most recent OTK Warrior (I will add that to my recent Warrior post too). I haven’t tried them all but I would like to hear from you which you found…
- best performing on ladder or
- had the most fun with.
There are also a lot of fun Yogg-Saron decks for almost any classes, Paladin is left out there because Uther just does not understand what fun is :mrgreen:. I took a lot of decks from @NeviilzHS’s twitter posts. One deck I loved seeing most, is his Dragon Control Shaman. I was tinkering with a N’Zoth Control Shaman last week which did not work so well. Therefore I was happy to see a Control Shaman actually working on the ladder. I just love the idea of Control Shaman. Big shout-out here to Neviilz. He is such an innovative deck builder and is most known for his Echo Giant Mage, which sadly is not a thing any more in Standard. If you want to watch him, he streams regularly on twitch. Just follow the link to Neviilz twitch stream. If you have any ideas for my N’Zoth Shaman I would really appreciate a tweet @OtakuMZ1978. You can also send me your best fun decks and I might include them in the listing here. With this, let’s head to the decks and have fun!
