It has been an incredible start here with KHM. I feel like it isn’t just me, and I would echo that so far it seems like things are fairly balanced out of the gate. I haven’t personally ran into a particular busted deck. Sure Tibalts trickery might be annoying, however I can advocate you can still win when it hits. I’m currently 2 for 2 in competitive matchmaking clawing back from a T2 tibalt that should have landed wins for my opponents.
With that said, I did want to share some pretty cool decks I’ve had a chance to play here as well as some thoughts. Would also love to hear from you!
At a highlevel – slightly no surprise and it feels very aggro dominated atm. One deck I haven’t had a chance to actually play yet is the new Sultai Yorion lists. I have played against it several times, and this could be a potential deck to shift this.
Additionally, there is a different take between BO1 & BO3 so keep that in mind. The biggest piece I would just say is the amount of aggro decks in BO3 atm – however, I think this is a function of early season.
This deck ran very very smooth. Goldspan has added a new element to the matchup. Removing Terror of the Peaks though, removes some pretty heavy blow out, while Goldspan may create a much smoother experience.
Mother of Dragons! This #1 deck is an interesting take, and the new 2/2 first striker is just good in general as well. Its an strong take in BO3 as well as I have seen similar BO3 successful lists now creeping up in the meta.
Smashing what were the two best colors in BO1 together and making another strong contender will certainly continue to add to the tiering jockey. Keep an eye on this deck, and we will see how showdown continues to impact.
