Rotation Archetype Overview

Midrange Shadowcraft is a deck focused on utilizing many low-cost followers with great Last Words effects to maintain constant board presence and pressure. The deck has been out of the loop for a little while as Demonlord Eachtar left the Rotation scene, but with the release of a new Neutral follower, Gilnelise, Omen of Craving, the deck has regained the ability to push for game. Also, the addition of Cerberus, Hound of Hades and Charon, Stygian Ferrywoman filled the gap between the early-game and late-game and now the deck is able to apply constant pressure to the opponent.

Rotation Core Cards

Expansion: Base Set
Expansion: Chronogenesis
Expansion: Dawnbreak, Nightedge
Expansion: Omen of the Ten
Expansion: Chronogenesis
Expansion: Chronogenesis
Expansion: Brigade of the Sky

 

Dragon Oracle / Aiela, Dragon Sword: Key PP-boosters in the deck. It is recommended to mulligan aggressively to be able to play these in the early-game.

Whitefrost Dragonewt Filene: Excellent follower capable of taking down both small and large followers.

Galmieux, Omen of Disdain: A new follower evolves when it takes damage. Her Enhance (7) effect deals 1 damage to all followers including herself, thus evolving her for free. In her evolved form, every time she takes damage, she deals 3 damage to an enemy follower and the leader!

Frenzied Drake: Powerful board-sweeper.

Azi Dahaka / Zooey, Arbiter of the Skies: The two Storm finishers of the deck. With regards to Zooey, the player becomes virtually invincible for one turn, thus connecting play to the following turn.

Rotation Alternative Options

Expansion: Base Set
Expansion: Brigade of the Sky
Expansion: Starforged Legends
Expansion: Omen of the Ten
Expansion: Dawnbreak, Nightedge
Expansion: Brigade of the Sky
Expansion: Starforged Legends

 

Blazing Breath / Seraphic Blade: These are additional removal options for the deck. Seraphic Blade is quite versatile, being able to destroy any follower or amulet with its Enhance (6) ability.

Dragon’s Foresight: With Dragon Summoner out of Rotation, this is the other option for searching out cards. Since Dragoncraft has plenty draw options, this is probably not a top priority pick in this deck.

Griffonback Guard: A mid-sized Ward follower that becomes a 3/7 for 4-PP when Overflow is active.

Galua of Two Breaths: This follower is versatile, giving access to a draw-two spell or a spell that destroys any follower or amulet.

True Dragon Scathacha: Another option to ramp up PP in the mid-game. When Overflow is active, it also provides damage reduction for the leader.

Canyon of the Dragons: This amulet is still as powerful as ever, summoning a Dragon at the end of the turn three times. This is definitely a card to put in if the deck is customized to focus more on control.

Rotation Budget Options

Ramp Dragoncraft requires many legendary and gold cards, making it difficult to build. Cards such as Filene, Galmieux, and Warbreaker Dragoon are amazing cards for the deck, they can be replaced when budget is tight. Azi Dahaka and Zooey, on the other hand, is a must-have, since the deck would lack finishers otherwise. The slots for some of these legendaries can be filled by adding more follower removal, and definitely a full playset of Canyon of the Dragons.

Rotation Deck Mulligans

Dragon Oracle / Aiela, Dragon Sword / Dragoncleaver Roy: These are the main PP-boosting cards in the deck, so be sure to mulligan for them. When going first and Dragon Oracle and/or Dragoncleaver Roy is available, Aiela can be shuffled back into the deck.

Whitefrost Dragonewt Filene / Somniferous Whitewyrm: These are also nice 2-PP followers to keep for the early game. Against aggressive decks with small follower, Filene is extremely effective.

Rotation General Gameplan and Tips/Tricks

  • Ramp Dragoncraft will not be able to play its game without first PP boosting. Therefore, the early-game should be mainly focused on getting to cards such as Dragon Oracle and Dragoncleaver Roy. In most cases, the opponent will be able to control the board in the beginning to do this process, but stay patient as they can be dealt with mass removal later.

  • The mid-game should be focused on getting back the board that was lost in the early-game. Disdainful Rending, Filene, Force of the Dragonewt, and Galmieux are great cards at doing this.

  • Finally, as the board stabilizes, drop big followers like Poseidon, Azi Dahaka, or Zooey to gain control of the game!

  • Galmieux can be combined with Disdainful Rending to evolve and get rid of multiple followers.
