This is ”Whats In My Deckbuilder?”, a series by Babyjosus where he asks Bandit Gang members and other people from the community to share their insights about what kind of decks they have in their deckbuilder. The decks in one’s deckbuilder often say a lot about the person. The player could be a deckbuilder at heart and enjoy running his/her own homebrews and even personalize their deck loadout by giving them names. But of course, you also have the person who looks at a meta snapshot, starts netdecking the best lists from it and might not even bother giving them unique names. Oh well, there is only one way to find out and that is by exposing them through this series!
TheOneChristo's Deck Picks
There are definitely some leftovers from my tryhard Season of the Bear. Then there’s a bunch of other stuff that I never delete. It might be time for the great deckbuilder purge of 2021. Until then, here’s what’s in my deckbuilder.
I was looking for some NR that wasn’t Witchers and Mr Ecko sent me this one to play on stream. I got sidetracked by Kaedweni Revevants and never actually played it. I’ll probably get to it at some point.
Somebody in chat sent me this one as well, CatDadAnthony I think? I’m pretty sure he lifted it from Trynet. It was fun to play, but I get confused easily playing Revs, so it didn’t do my MMR much good.
DD’s stuff is my go-to for seasonal. It’s pretty much the first thing that ends up in my deck builder every season. Hats off to you sir for the top notch content.
Bushr’s Overwhelming Hunger
I was looking for old school OH and somebody sent me Bush’s list. It wasn’t exactly what I was going for. That night on stream I was too lazy to build my own deck, so I ended up playing Revs instead and this list sits unused in my deckbuilder (starting to see a trend?).
I love wholesome Elf lists. I always have. They used to be my go to archetype when a new patch came out. I’ve been toying around with Traps – which I hate, so it was refreshing to come back to good old Elf Swarm. Fun and a solid deck.
A viewer redemption, having spent his hard-earned tea bags to have me play his deck. It’s inspired by an older NG, lock-heavy list. Doesn’t quite match up well to the current 4x Joachim lists that are floating around.
Mercernn’s Stockpile Another viewer redemption. Mercernn is an expert deck builder. That being said, Stockpile is bad. Sorry Merc.
I snagged this out of the Bandit Gang discord, I can’t remember who posted it. I’ve been having a tough time with Monsters lately, so I was trying out a variety of different things.
New Lined Pockets lists have been forgoing the Sir. I wanted to try a version with Skewertooth. I didn’t notice a huge difference between the two versions.
Presidente’ Guerilla Tactics
Another viewer redemption. It’s an all-neutral deck with GT. Lots of fun. Lots of Bandits! It actually won us a couple of games…..in casual.
Psykoki Made Me Do It
It was a viewer redemption. I had no choice. I refuse to play Lippy Gudmund and never used that card before. I used it once. Won the game. Never plan on touching it again. Not sure why I haven’t deleted it yet.
Lined Pockets V3
V1 & V2 are gone, V3 is post Tunnel Drill nerf (I barely want to call it that – post drill tweak?)
As in “Christo, why have you stooped so low?” I’ve been trying a bunch of Monster things and I’m not loving any of the options, this one included.
Eist list with Mork in it. Exciting, I know.
Pretty standard stuff, they actually served me quite well a few seasons ago.
The famous 4x Joachim list that the Council posted as the Chinese Metabreaker. If it was that good, I had to try it, right? Except I didn’t. It still sits unloved in my deckbuilder. I ended up playing Cloggers for NG MMR.
Can you tell that I don’t really like any Monster options this season? This one included. I know it’s a strong list, I just cannot for the life of me figure out how to play it.
Another viewer list – Bladerunner sent me this guy when I said I wanted to play some Enslave.
Kelly Kelly Bo Belly
Another Kelly list I tried (and failed with).
Named after that famous scene from Glengarry Glenn Ross (or the SNL Skit Always be Cobbling), this was a mix of what enerGiiX and iancm were playing last season and was a real superstar for me, punching above 2500. Yes, I’m sorry, but not that sorry for playing clog.
Eist to See You
Ya I was going on a movie kick apparently, this one from Batman & Robin’s Mr Freeze (or Rainier Wolfcastle from the Simpson). First kick at the can for Eist last season. There’s even a deck guide floating around somewhere.
Emhyr’s Sneaky Spices
First go at it with Emhyr. I actually had a lot of fun with this deck. It hasn’t aged all that well, but I don’t have the heart to delete it.
There is no more iconic a combination than BabyJosus & Triple….well Triple anything, really, but Triple Commandos is near and dear to my heart, so when BJ updated his list with the Foltest buff, I had to give it a go.
Who Is TheOneChristo?
TheOneChristo aka Christo is known as the owner of Christo’s Cafe serving all kinds of specialties. He started out as a streamer and joined Bandit Gang as one, but has since then improved his menu by adding Host and Caster to the it. He has been hosting and casting events for Bandit Gang and 983 Media since that and eventually got the opportunity to cast the Top 64 Qualifiers for CDPR alongside WatchFlake.
