Deck Overview:

ShadowNexus' Copperverse tournament is due in less than a week. Now to clear things up, i am not affiliated with ShadowNexus in any ways, but i like the concept of the Copperverse tournament since it creates a leveled playing ground where everyone can participate and have a shot at winning the tournament. Also, i just like decks that work without the need of excessive legendary cards, as proven from my series of No Gold and Legendary budget decklists.

The first list i came up with is an aggro shadow list, but with a fun twist. Instead of running a highly aggressive build with curved-out minions, it runs the much-forgotten Impious Resurrection to gain as much value from cards like Dark Conjurer's Ghost and creates 2 Liches in conjunction with Attendant of the night. 2 4/4 bodies on turn 4 is incredibly difficult to deal with in this format where you have very limited options for removals. This deck generates a lot of shadows to feed Lesser Mummies and Undying Resentments. It runs 2 Goblin Leader as a 4 drop since it's a persistent threat that has to be removed, and cards like Rabbit Necromancer will put enough pressure on your opponent to the point where they wouldn't be able to keep a constant board state.

How does this deck perform so far? To be honest i wasn't expecting much from a deck that's consisted entirely out of bronze cards, but it actually managed to put up quite a fight, even killing a D-Shift player at one point. Its matchup against control isn't bad either due to its mixed value-and-aggro playstyle through cards like Attendant and Demon Eater.
