    portal - raising the intensity to the storm

    tome of knowledge - summoning the storms with magic
    sacrificial lamb - for the gods... to bring more storms



    -------------------------------------------------------------
    ive put off posting this for several reasons but have now decided to post it. of the new cards recently released, only Dagger of Unmaking was the only addition i was considering. but decided against it, mainly because there are already so many 5cc cards in the deck. but here it is, enjoy


    1.29 GraveThunder and Lightning - Gravebone 40+1

    4x plasma behemoth
    4x shadow knights
    4x brutal minotaurs

    4x fireballs
    4x lightning strike

    2x freeze
    2x clinging webs
    4x rain delay

    4x portal
    2x shadowfont
    3x bazaar
    3x bad santa



    plasma behemoth: he is the lightning
    shadow knight: he brings back both the thunder and the lightning and is also thunder himself
    brutal minotaur: he is the thunder

    fireballs: more thunder but from raining fire
    lightning strike: i forget what this is

    freeze: help with survival of the first frew turns while the storm is building
    clinging webs: ditto
    rain delay: ditto again

    portal: instant bringer of thunder and lightning
    shadowfont: help to bring back the thunder and lightning
    bazaar: to bring the thunder and lightning faster
    bad santa: hurricane force

    ---------------------------------

    the purpose of this deck: to BEAT the ever loving SNOT out of everyone!!!

    survive the first few turns with freeze/webs/rain delay while the storm is building
    portal on turn four
    turn five: category 1 hurricane (drop a 5cc, preferably minotaur and then just keep dropping them and bringing them out of the graveyard)
    turn six: category 2
    turn 7: category 3
    turn 8: category 4
    turn 9: cagtegory 5... if they managed to survive to this point... its all over. nothing survives.

    you really only need the first portal... possibly 2 if your opponent is stubbornly riding out the storm so far. sac the rest if you have another in hand. sac freeze/webs/raindelay after from turn 4 on

    second purpose of the deck: amazing fun

    ---------------------------------------

    this is the deck i almost used in the tournament and gauntlet but i instead went with solo ter adun

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    How do you deal with misplaced? A lot of decks running this now, losing a turn at T4 is very devastating.

    go to a turn 5 portal, or just dont use it and cast a PB instead. what are they gonna do? kill it? then you still have two fatties on turn 6. they kill one or both of them... shadowfont and bring one back with a fireball kicker on turn 7

    things still not going right? use fireballs/lightning strike/rain delay/freeze/webs to get it back and nail them.

    portal is fun and a great advantage but you can win without it. and the loss of tempo can be regained.

    Ok fair enough, but yeah they just kill it with board wipe. To me, this deck is better without portal, and 4 Gargoyles instead.

    How do you deal with an opposing Dagger of Unmaking?

    If she ran gargoyle as per my suggestion, then she has a crude method.

    Imo, you could change your strategy to casting a portal at t6, when resurructing a pb.

    Might also remove clinging webs, they're inferior. I would scrap both entirely and add in thaddeus or gargoygles.

    Yeah this also. But we start making so many changes it is no longer representative of caits deck or flavor so better to restrict to only 1-2 changes max.

    Imo, the flavor is still retained to a point. I simply do my best to help her achieve a 400 rating.
