The Deck That Got Me To Rank 15


-- 5,850

I was stuck in rank 12 with NG. Finally I gave up and just started playing ST. It was a pretty easy climb to rank 15 with this deck. My score is 25-9.

Win round 1 while buffing Braenn or Toruviel or Archer in that order. Don’t worry to go down 1-2 cards. You can even go down 3 cards if you’re feeling lucky.

Use ST ability 2nd round and gain the card advantage. This should be pretty easy since there are many cards that can give CA in this deck. Bleed enemy as much as possible.

Almost every game you will have the last say in round 3. Just play your buffed Braenn last to get up to 40 point swing.

      Disclaimer: I only started to play recently, but since the closed beta will get wiped I was able to make a pretty good ST deck by milling cards I don’t play.

      As you probably know Tiruviel is an amazing card, that can give you huge board swings and is protected from weakening due to the ambush mechanic. The same can be said about Shirru and to a slightly lesser extend Ida Emean.

      I don’t think there are alot of good players who wouldn’t agree with the above statement. Now this is exactly what makes Ciaran good:

      Because Tiruviel and other strong board swing ambush cards are common and strong, people *have* to play around the fact that these cards might be on the board or they might outright lose the game. Ciaran makes said cards *even stronger* than they are anyways and said cards make Ciaran strong because it keeps the opponent guessing. You can put it down and some players will overextend like crazy, not knowing if it is actually Ciaran or not.

      Another very important factor is card advantage. If you get Ciaran back to your hand you can play it again, so you can have the last play. In that regard it is a very similar card to Yaevinn: The point loss overall is made up for by the card advantage it gives you.

      This all ties into the set identity of Scoia’tael decks like this one. It is not one of huge numbers like some of the other ones but about reactive/controlling play and board swings.

        Oh so you can basically only play him against seasoned players, because the players just won’t care, right?
