    [BP maximont] Mid Range Lance

    So I'm posting this mainly because Gondorian keeps complaining in Telegaram that people are posting enough decks

    Credentials for deck
    - currently sitting at #1 on the Lance win streak leaderboard with 23 wins
    - got up to about ~340 rating in the March 18 season before switching to other stuff.
    - [will edit in my final position for the season here - currently 2nd]

    Version
    v3.521

    Lance is not as good a control hero as Garth (obviously), but he makes up for it with offensive capability which can be particularly useful against any annoying stall type decks. I was a bit surprised I did so well with this version to be honest as I was messing around with a few cards that are atypical for Lance (shuriken and Artisan) but they seemed to work out. TBH rogue are spolit for choice in the 3 drop slot with many good options so feel free to swap in Night Owl/Sword Thief or even Seductress for Artisan.

    The Deck (42 cards)

    Allies (22)
    4 x Layarian Knight (sticky 2 drop)
    2 x Masked Bandit (sticky 2 drop)
    2 x Aldon (good for stepping up aggro)
    4 x Aldmor Artisan (stickyish 3 drop + reasonably good abilities)
    2 x Raven (control; an answer to some fatties)
    3 x Brax Soldier (an answer to some strategies + generally annoying for opponent to deal with)
    2 x Eriss Fateweaver (an answer to warriors, stall, solo gwen, Jerry etc.)
    1 x Nathanias (good fatty)
    1 x Kion (good fatty; an answer to stealth/hidden)
    1 x Fagin (good fatty)

    Abilities (9)
    2 x Retreat (for tempo)
    2 x Assassination (an answer)
    4 x Stop Thief (item control + resource acceleration)
    1 x Legend Rises (hold onto vs warrior and priest)

    Items (10)
    4 x IGG (draw engine)
    2 x Spirit Shuriken (back up control weapon)
    4 x Ankle Breaker (main control weapon)

    How to play
    basically contest board early with stick minions before trying to stabilise and gain an edge with your weapon and try to get your draw engine out as soon as you can. You should have enough answers in the deck to respond to your opponents threats, and you have your own fatties and ability to try and close out the game.

    Zal and Mages are probably your toughest match ups, but you should be fine vs everything else.

    Awesome deck Maxi! And great write-up.
    I have never seriously played Lance or rouges at all. But I will give this one a try.
    Thx for sharing.

    I am glad classic Lance with IGG is doing so well. How I understand current popular meta decks a lot of people stoppsed running IGG in their Lances and instead rely on ally cantrips for draw.

    ‘Classic’ Lance is a good description for this one. I’ve picked up from TG that a lot of people have moved on from IGG. But cos I took a break from the game I’m still stuck in 2016

    Nice deck!

    Ever tried to use Great Bear?

    It looks weird but its actually a good 4cc option to use lance ability on.

    Never considered Bear before, but yes I agree that looks like a good option.

    The potential problem is that Lance needs to be slim, so something has to be cut to cut to fit it in. But it’s always worth experimenting.

    Just played 5 games with this deck. Lost to Perfect start swarm Aramia which I think every deck loses to. Other than that, it was very straightforward and simple to play. I think it is a good deck for beginners to try out.

    Thank you for sharing this.
