    Advice for Victor deck?

    As it stands, I'm a noob, just started today, and I'm slowly working my way into the mechanics. SO far, this is what I've built, and I feel that it has potential. I intend on dropping the Special Delivery, as it's too expensive for it's ability, Dirk, as they're weak, and Sandra, as the ability to burn one Res isn't worth it for the price. But any other ideas on how to tweak it to make it more effective is awesome. I''m not looking for a cheese deck like a Logan,Amber, or other OU deck. That's why I picked Victor. I think we can make a pretty effective deck using his ability against Ally heavy decks.

    Edit: I've tuned the deck a bit with the advice I've gotten from you guys, and here's the current standing.

    Victor isn't the best hero right now. His ability is AWESOME! But his card pool is lacking.

    There are a few routes you can go in though.

    1) Focus on early board control and try to take the enemy out quickly. Though that kinda works with every hero
    2) Focus on late game, with no early allies, only big allies. 3x Aeon, 3x Raven, 3x Sandworm or something like that, and use 4x Poison arrows and 4x Flaming arrow to control the board.
    3) Focus on traps. This is a defensive style, with 4x lily, 4x Death Trap and you just keep recursing that Death trap with lilies, and your ability. This is a very fun style, but it doesn't work very well vs very aggressive decks with low cost allies because he will just flood you.

    • My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too.

    • Just remember...if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.

    • With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

    • I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

    I've noticed that Victor does dominate at early in the game, but has issues maintaining momentum. Plus, the SS only works against ally heavy decks. It might work with Aimed Shot to handle weenie rush decks, but only slightly, I believe. I do like the Death Trap Lily combo, I'll have to try that out.

    Here's a new deck I made using your advice.

    Hey Geo, I know I said I would comment on irc but I'm too tired right now. Your deck needs more than the cursory glance. I'll post tomorrow. In the meantime, have a look at my beginners guide to Victor (see sig) for an analysis on Victor and some good discussion and threads to check out. Also some combos and play ideas. Your deck lacks focus, but I'll comment more on tuning it tomorrow!

    +1 Great post

    You can also use Retreat and Death Trap. Retreat is a good card for a Victor deck.

    Late game synergy is awesome. If you survive of course

    Victor can be a good deck. I played mine awhile and stayed around 240-245. The problem is that he has no item destruction, and has tough match-ups against the best decks, elad and logan.

    And Amber, and Boris, and Zhanna (maybe Zhanna the least of the 3). There isn't much left that is played after these are all marked as bad matchups.
