|Shadowverse Challenge #12 2nd Place: CpV.FanTaSy - Aggro Dragoncraft||Updated
Aggro Dragoncraft is a different type of aggro deck. While it is certainly capable of very aggressive plays in the early game, it actually acts as a control deck against your opponents aggressive decks due to its various damage and destruction effects!
A very important piece to the aggro dragon puzzle! Have a damaged ward you can't breakthrough? Siegfried can handle it! In combination with cards such as Fire Lizard and Angel of the word, Siegfried can kill almost everything he touches the moment he comes into play. When playing him, always be thinking of how you can take maximum advantage of his powerful ability!
Griffon Knight easily fits into this deck because he can skill many of your opponents early game followers when he comes into play by dealing 2 damage to it. There is the downside of having cards discarded from your hand when you use his ability but the reward outways the risk so you can finish your opponent quickly!
Eyfa is one of the decks finishers. It can be played early if you really need it too but one of the problems with the card is that it has low defense. This means that it can easily be killed by most of your opponents damage effects. It does have the benefit of not being able to be attacked which could prove useful in aggro matches.
Her enhance however, is where Eyfa really shines. Eyfa gets bigger and gains storm so she can be used to finish your opponent off completely out of nowhere!

As with any aggro deck, you want to get the game started fast! You want to be playing to your early game curve as much as you possibly can. The difference with this deck than most aggro decks though is that it is very strong when it goes second.
Using your early game control cards such as Fire Lizard and Angel of the Word to make trading for your opponent unfavorable or to outright kill your opponents followers. As you continue to keep your opponents board clear of threats with your damage effects, you will create opportunities to deal damage to your opponent each turn because you won't be forced to trade.
In the event that you do not get early game removal, Only trade when you have to and hit your opponent in the face anyway.
Bluntly stated, use your followers to cut through your opponents defense. This ia a very "all or nothing" Style of deck. You either win through war of attrition and face damage or you lose because you ran out of resources completely. Your priorities should be as follows:
- Use your evolution points to force damage through to your opponent to end the game as quickly as possible.
- Use your evolution points to break through your opponents wards.
While these are general things that most aggro decks can do, this deck does them a bit differently because of its damage effects. You can use Siegfried to break your opponents wards if you have already done damage to them in a previous turn so you can save your Evo points for doing damage to your opponent.
Use Storm followers such as Dark Dragoon Forte and Eyfa, Wyvern Rider to close out the game. These followers have the potential to do a lot of damage in a massive burst making it difficult for your opponent to be able to recover.
Finisher Set Up
Most of this deck is going to be mostly cards that have 1~4 play point costs. Because of that, whenever you play Dragon Emissary, it will ALWAYS get Dark Dragoon Forte because it is the only card that can be found due to the decks configuration. This is particularly important because enhance costs do not count in emissary's search function. This is why you are able to always get Forte and not Eyfa, Wyvern Rider
