Metashaker deckbuilding contest #8 - Oversky week #4 results
Best decks of the fourth week of Oversky.
Last week you have been sharing your awesome ideas for the decks with us and now it is time to conclude what ideas are the best. Everybody was experimenting with the new Oversky cards and it was indeed a hard task to impress the judges. In the end what are the most original decks of Oversky week #4?
Illusion of Faeries
The first deck is a GYB combo deck made by Verity which features Dream Keeper and Curious Biomancer. This deck is packed with tons of little interactions that result in an exploding combo!
- Drakkar Skycaptain with the help of a number of card draw effects like Iona's Smile, Curious Biomancer and Dream Keeper may buff several flying creatures.
- After you draw faeries with your Drakkar Skycaptains on board you may shuffle them back with Dream Keeper and draw them back later with even more buffs!
- You may use your Dream Keepers to draw events to flip your faeries already on board. Even though this deck doesn't have that many events, with the help of Dream Keepers you can trigger your faeries' ability pretty consitently.
- Fairies' faeria cost is 2. This means after Dream Keeper shuffling thier faeria cost becomes 1 which is exactly what you want to buff your Illusions of Grandeur.
- Remember that even though faeries are only 1/1 bodies, if you they manage to catch a couple of buffs from Drakkar Skycaptains your Illusions may grow very big.
- Aurora's Creation is meant to be used on Dream Keepers to get even more buffs and discounts. By the way, Creation'ed creatures also count towards Illusion. Sweet!
For the 1st place Verity recieves 5000 gold. Congratulations!
The second deck made by onnig90 and this is another Skycaptain Dream Keeper deck. However, the approach is quite different — whereas the first deck tries to sit back, this one goes straight to the opponent orb. Using Sunsilk Faerie and Wind Wisp charge 3 with the help of blue and yellow mobility in the form of Flash Wind and Shifting Tide, this deck tries to damage the opponent's face. Flash Salmon's haste makes it a great creature to be buffed by Skycaptain, especially when buffed buffed several times by shuffling it back with Dream Keeper. Another cool thing is that this deck is capable of triggering Khalim's Prayer very consitently — if you don't have it in your hand just use Dream Keeper to draw for it! You could even use Flash Salmon before shuffling if you currently don't have any creature ready to strike the orb. Neat!
For the 2nd place onnig90 recieves 2500 gold. Congratulations!
BY Emperor Control
The last deck is a BY Control deck made by ArdentEspio that features Emperor Kaios and Curious Biomancer. If you survive long enough to play either Kaios or Curious Biomancer followed by Kaios then you will be im a good spot for several reasons. Kaios's production ability gives -1/-0 to all enemy creature and kills those who have 0 attack. By using Frogify, Humbling Vision and Emperor's Command you may kill desired enemy creatures more quickly with the Emperor's ability while also protecting him. Azarai plus Kaios combo may result in a massive board clear! Both of them are also great targets for Aurora's Creation. If something goes wrong Windstorm Colossus may help you out to finish the game.
For the 3rd place ArdentEspio recieves 1000 gold. Congratulations!
