ES's Low Budget Decks
« on: June 26, 2016, 03:05:23 AM »
Hi there, So I wanted to share some highly competetive decks I made for the new players with emphasis on cheap (about 3 rares in deck + 1 in command required) that are great to use in normal mode.

By Highly Competetive I mean that they could beat tier 1 decks.

All decks are simple and easy to use.

The Decks:

1.Exiled Flame:
Deck type: Aggressive
Complexity: Low
http://imgur.com/5x11dNA
Rares in deck: 3x descension.
2 Exiles, 1 Flame Dawn
Commanders: Bromich,field commander, Infected devil,Infected devil.

Preferable Sideboard: 3x winds of war, 2x mark of the demon,3x purify,1x demonic reflection,1x kidnapped by demons,2x splat.

*note: You can replace one Infected devil with TwoFace to get more out of this deck although it will be a bit harder to pilot.

Deploy 1 and 2 drops to strike your oponnent, then use the 2 devils to defend and take control of the board by overwhelming it with characters backed by Bromich at the end of the line, finish him off by playing cards like descent into madness,descension (which can be used to defend as well).

                                   
2. Overwhelming Descendants:
Deck type: Combo
complexity: High
http://postimg.org/image/me7nl9tpv/
Rares in deck: 3x counting the days.
2 Descendants of dragons, 1 exile.
Commanders: Xi,ascended, Infected devil, Gao Han, Saltwart.
 
Preferable Sideboard: 3x splat, 3x lingbao's will,3x jinhai dojo,3x Glorious warrior.

Defend at the early game while playing cards for future buffs in the late game like Counting the days.
 
3. Tibat’s Assault.
Deck type: Aggro/control
Complexity: Medium
http://imgur.com/yDPxs7Y
Rares in deck: None.
Descendants of dragons, exile, Flame Dawn.
Commanders: Tibat,the mad monk,Knight of the flame dawn, infected devil.

Preferable Sideboard: 3x retaliation,3x lingbao's will,1x noble protector,3x purify, 2x chaos in the ranks.
 
Use the assault power of the flame dawn with the defensive power of exile/dod to control the board and pressure your opponent.
 
4. Robotic Descendants
Deck type: combo/midrange
Complexity: Medium
http://postimg.org/image/yilmraoj1/
Rares in deck:  3x Unstable Bomb-Bot
Descendants of Dragons, 2 Genesis industries.

Preferable Sideboard: 3x disruption sphere,2x retaliation,2x lance of junhai,3x lingbao's will,2x winds of war.

Commanders: Adaptive construct, Splitter Bot, Infected Monk.
Rush with the power of the Genesis while protecting your units with the power of the Descendants of Dragon.


5. Aleta immortal sorceress
Deck type: Control/combo
Complexity: High
http://postimg.org/image/v925i2v2v/
http://postimg.org/image/ik0k5ketz/
Rares in deck: 3x Mass death.
Exile, 2 Cult of verore.
Commanders: Rita, mistress of shadow, infected devil, Aleta immortal priestess.

Preferable Sideboard: 3x vandalize,3x rift of the old world,2x assasinate,1x verore kidnapper, 1x overcharged bolt, 1x chain lightning,1x overcharged storm,.

With cards like Candit, recycle, gather thoughts and Dark vision,Adaptive Ritualist you can pretty much find the kill card you are looking for.
Destroy your opponent's morale and pressure him by hitting the fortress points in the process.


6.Exiled machines:
Deck type: combo/midrange
Complexity: Medium
http://imgur.com/l1V7SSC
Rares in deck:3x Angelify
Exile,2 Genesis industries.
Commanders: Splitter bot, Infected devil, Adaptive construct.

Preferable Sideboard: 3x zombigones, 3x disruption spheres,3x chaos in the ranks,3x mark of the demon.

Dominate the board from the early game right until the end with this great defense/offense balanced deck offered by the genesis industries and the Exiled alliance.

7.Demonic Tribe:
Deck type: combo
Complexity: Medium
http://imgur.com/WEofEdc
Rares in deck: 3x descension.
Commanders: Alpha demon, Master of demons, infected devil.

Preferable Sideboard:3x chaos in the ranks,3x splat,3x hubris of the strong, 3x spontanious combustion.

Start you match by weakening your opponent from turn 1 with cards like burden of command and lightning blast, play demons on curve followed by master of demons + infected devil on turn 4 to create a 10/10 master of demons for 1 cost and overwhelm your opponent with the power of demons while blasting them with various removals such as deathray, kidnapper, demonize, and tools like descension and descent into madness in the late game.

8.Warpath Fury
Deck type: ramp/midrange
Complexity: Low
http://imgur.com/SUHqBNV
Rares in deck 3x skraar.
Command: Bring life by passing,adaptive hulker, aleta caretaker.

Preferable Sideboard: 3x antient aether,3x corrupted forest,2x wreckful walrus,2x subdues the meek,1x hunted down,1x denial of magic.

Use the giant bests and ramp up with resources faster than any deck with bring life by passing and gift of the passing,not many decks can deal with a defensive hulker on turn 3 (14/14 when deployed and overcharged), and than may give you time to deploy other large beasts, take control of the board with cards such as ecalyptus tree, hunted down, and the infamous fight+rite combo and finish your opponent off with skraar or hehkeem.

9.Beasts Of Fire
Deck type: Aggro/midrange
Complexity: Low
http://imgur.com/9HNSjyA
Command: Kali, the flaming blade, Adaptive Hulker x2
Rares in deck: 3x Skraars.

Preferable Sideboard: noble protector x3,wreckful walrus x3,3x ancient aether, assasinate x3.

A Flame Dawn deck that uses The Warpath faction for utility cards to break the opponent's defense with force rather than try to stumble or move them out of the way.
Play small flame dawn and warpath drops until you have enough resources to unleash your powerful command and take control of the battlefield, and if that's not enough, you can always finish them off with use a skraar or the Fight!+Rite combo  :P

10.Corrupted Machines
Deck type: combo/midrange
Complexity: Medium
http://imgur.com/7XGpkxm
Commanders: Splitterbot,bloodthirsty dead, support drone.
Rares in deck:3x Unstable bomb-bot.

Preferable Sideboard: 3x feast on the dead,3x disruption spheres,2x lucca ascended, 2x anti air missle, 2x angelify.

Buff your undead characters with constructor , upgrades, support drone, build a powerful infect chatacter and overwhelm your opponent with mission+lucca later in the game.
*This deck has a powerful removal tool: Undead corruption+zombie-gone.

11.Demoralization
Deck type: Combo/control
Complexity High
http://imgur.com/sby77nL
Commanders: Rita,mistress of shadow,Kung ji,Rubble golem.
Rares in deck:3x Mass death.

Preferable Sideboard: 3x xi,ascended, 3x desolation, 2x vandalize, 2x rift of the old world,1x chain lightning, 1x verore kidnapper.

*Warning: This deck may be a bit harder to pilot for the new player since it requires a bit more exp with morale decks and a different gameplay from the rest of the decks here, don't get frustrated out of this one  :P

Use your commanders to stall well into the mid-late game where key cards come into play such as Demoralize and Mass death and glorious warriors while blasting your opponent with some of the best morale removals in the game.

12.Overclock
Deck type: Combo/midrange
Complexity: Low
http://imgur.com/5nNN3Qs
Commanders: Aleta Tinkerer,Splitter robot,Adaptive construct.
rares in deck:2x Bomb Bot, 2x Angelify.

Preferable Sideboard: 3x disruption sphere, 3x temporary mass reality shift,3x zombgone, 2x low orbit cannon, 1x give him a jetpack.

Overwhelm your opponent with the power of the Genesis Industries!
Buff your robots and scale them in size quickly with key cards such as upgrades, Luccas and Aleta Tinkerer, clear the way with cards like Bomb Bot and Winds of War.

13.Ascension
Deck type: Combo/aggro
Complexity: Medium
http://imgur.com/jsJuByK
Commanders: Tempus, 2xForerunners or champions
Rares in deck: 3x Lilariah

Preferable Sideboard: 3x Tyra,3x consecration, 3x cassial,the selfless, 3x heavenly wish.

Use Tempus and other champions to buff your Forerunners and surprise your opponent with various Champions from hand.

#14 Unlimited Tokens (InvertedEye came up with this great idea originally)
Deck type: combo/control
Complexity: Medium
http://imgur.com/a/8cIcd
Commanders: Rita,mistress of shadow, Gao Han, xi.
Rares in deck: 3x Counting The Days, 2x Dojo (Dojo is really important without it, the deck has no answer to The Calamity, can be played without it tho).

Preferable Sideboard: 3x yuanshi's wrath,3x eagle-eye,3x humble,2x cheff, 1x jinhai dojo.

Play small tokens to stall and recycle them in the form of spirits via Xi while gradually playing cards like Counting The Days and Dojo to buff those cards and eventually overwhelm your opponent with your powerful swarm army.

Let me know if you have any questions, Thanks for reading, hope it helps  ;D

Really, really excellent work.

This list has some excellent examples of decks that are not difficult to get, are cool to play and are very competitive (by the way, even if a player doesn't have all the cards of a deck shown here, there are some easy fixes around it in the most cases).

I can say I'll try everyone one of them myself.

Tks for this.

Nice decks. Took 3 of them to normals queue. The results are:

Exiled Machines - 5/1, took first loss to the absense of some key cards but then ES fixed the deck and went smoothly since.

Corrupted Machines - 5/2 Lost to 3 avatars due to bad draw and/or no way to deal with immortal stuff, also lost to 3gi omnitron, but it was anyones game and it was decided by lack of undedad corruption whole game. Could easily be a win

Beasts of Fire - 5/2 Lost one game to a proper exile/descension deck DD and 2 devils of despair. Another one to extreme rush 3 fd.

All decks went rather smoothly against proper, not cheap, decks, in a queue full of not only newbies but veterans too. Good job ES.

Great Content, ES and nice initiative, Zekses. I also planned to test a few of those at my 24-hour stream. Hope some new Players will be around, so I can deliver some budget deck reviewing.

Already included this on my channel under "Helpful Guides". Keep this kinda content coming. :D

Good Budget decks = Amazing and helps NPE A LOT.
