Corporate Machine


-- 6,050

Hello all! Flake here with my first deck build for your scrutiny and enjoyment.


The deck is called ‘Corporate Machine’ because it revolves around your siege row machines and a supply of melee row peasants that will tow the corporate line, begging for a promotion (to gold status). This deck utilizes the Northern realm passive ability to get value from gold unit deployment, and the ability to have a strength snowball effect.


Mulligan hard for Ciri. The ideal opening is a Siege Tower, followed by Ciri and Roach. This provides 17 strength, a strong opening, as well as a board that, should you lose, will all be salvageable. Ciri goes back to hand, Roach reappears from the graveyard, and your tower will reappear with a medic. Hopefully your opponent has used 3-4 cards to win the round, and you can now focus on having a significant advantage in rounds 2 and 3.


I will keep the strategy short, as this is my first deck I’ve brought to ranked, and it has begun with a 23-7 record, losing mostly to Skellige discard decks.


Vernon Roche: An answer to Yennefer, and a way to deal with other gold units of consequence.

Cleaver: Locking out important cards, and curbing Resilience.

Yennefer: A great card that often incites a concede. This card also helps even out strength to make a Scorch much more effective.

Ballista: I’ve tried various iterations of this deck, but found that the siege units are most reliable. Rain is rarely an issue, and in combos, just two Ballistas can wreck havoc.


I will write a more in depth guide to this deck should it continue to be successful. Until then, see you on Twitch!

    I totally love your deck! I replace Scorch with Decoy, and Alzur’s Thunder with Shackles, Cleaver with Priscilla, and John Natalis for Vernon. Do you have any suggestions on another Silver or Gold I could swap in to strengthen my hand even more?

      Vernon got the boot pretty hard, so this deck has since changed a little.

    is there a good replacement for Vernon Roche? I think after they changed him there should be a btter option? I haven’t crafted him yet and I don’t feel like I should do it now.

      Since i also dont have him yet i tried Triss and it works just fine for me (or try Sile de Tansarville), otherwise this Deck is really solid and i dont see much room for improvement.
