Mulligan/Draw Simulator

Deck Overview

This is kind of your typical control sword (I know control sword is pretty bad) but if you play it right, it can outshine some tier 2 decks. This deck runs 9 legendary and 7 gold cards.

Mulligans:
Try getting chromatic duel whenever you can and use it to get Hemera (or Magnus if you are fighting against rune or tenko). For other cards, just trying getting cards that generate more cards like Valse or Servant of Usurpation.

Gameplan and Core Cards:
The core card in this deck is Darksaber Melissa. If your opponent doesn't have an evo it could be a world of pain for the them to deal with (sometimes). For the gameplan, try to control the board (obviously) and try to annoy your opponent into conceding or slowly killing them.
Another key card in this deck is Unsheathed Blade. Combo it with Zeta to get unlimited storm or combo it with King of the Horned Crown or Latham to kill something big early in the game. Reminder: if you use King of the Horned Crown, whenever you attack it will still deal 1 damage to all followers.

If you find hard to win against Holy Lion Haven, try bringing 3 Seraphic blade, some Holy Bear Knight and 3 Darksaber Melissa. Another weakness to this deck is Mysteria Rune, so just pray and play if you are fighting against it
