Guide – Battle Rush

This article is part of a Bandit Gang series, covering the many different seasonal modes with brief descriptions, strategies, and deck ideas. Not every deck will always be up to date, given the weekly rotation. Instead, we will display the date it was created, so that you can see what may have changed in the game since then. Feel free to adjust the decks with new cards or old cards that you like better, and remember to have fun! – MAIN PAGE

Both players have just 8 seconds to complete their turn and 15 seconds to complete the redrawing phase.

Battle Rush really is a fan favorite and used to be part of the Draconid season. It is very fast paced and the games are significantly shorter, making it a great opportunity to gather daily crowns or progress leader masteries. While it doesn’t necessarily require specific deck building, it eliminates decks that have too many actions per turn. You also won’t have time to make too many considerations for each play, so it’s quite important that you have a bit of practice with your list and know which lines to play. Misplays come easier but it doesn’t bother you as much, you are just here to jam some games, right?

The easiest approach here are of course autopilot decks that you play with little interaction to your opponent. Thrive decks have always been popular here and Viy certainly fits as well. But what about engine decks that test your opponent’s ability (and your own) to do quick maths? Miscounting leads to awkward and bad passes from time to time. So maybe you want to play a Scoia’tael movement deck or some vampires? There are a lot of options and some surprising combos that would usually be considered as a meme can sometimes have an edge over predictable meta lists.

In short, just play what you feel comfortable with. Make adjustments to cards and combos that take too much time to execute. There will be lists attached to this quick overview, but there are a lot more options and all are strongly influenced by balancing changes and card additions that are going to happen in the future.
