Welcome to the first official Deck Guide from Team BG! This spicy new deck, brought to you by Driftbling in collaboration with VilleKSK, was created live during a co-op stream. Its main focus is harnessing the power of Greatswords, a 6 Provision bronze card that has seen its fair share of play throughout homecoming but never seemed to really stand out. Until now. Not only is this deck incredibly fun to play, but there’s something satisfying about watching the boost animation play for each ping of damage, creating huge point swings as every single ping of damage is essentially doubled in value as long as you have at least 1 Greatsword on the board.
The main goal of this deck is to use An Craite Greatswords & Dagur Two Blades, which has the same ability but without a row restriction, to generate insane value. This is done by utilizing multiple-ping cards such as Morkvarg: Heart of Terror, Lacerate, Delirium and so on. Meanwhile cards like Armored Drakkar & Svalblod Priest are cost effective, hard to remove engines that can either bait out removal or if not, generating very high value. It can be a challenge for your opponent to decide what to remove as they usually have limited options, but even if your Greatswords end up being destroyed, Freya’s Blessing allows you to bring them right back onto the board. Your leader ability, Reckless Fury, deals 8 damage in a series of individual pings which can create a 20 point swing if used with just one other card, Dagur Two Blades, possibly even higher if you have other Greatswords already on the board.
The deck aims to utilize the Greatswords ability by using lots of cards that deal damage in small pieces AKA pings, so engines such as Dimun Corsair are used, which can spread bleeding accross your opponents board.
This deck is vulnerable to control, as it lacks purify. Decks such as Nilfgaard Poision, which feature good tall removal, are a threat. In cases such as this you’ll want to focus on getting your damage engines going first as they’ll do more for you in the long run and generally have a lower base power, making it a sub-optimal choice for your opponent as a poison target.
