Merry Melee Dingleton Decklist

    • Merry Melee Dingleton Decklist

      The list was roughly based on an arena deck I was playing the first time Dingleton rolled out and haven't had a chance to play the format until today but it's 3-0 so far and always fun games.

      The deck plays like a storm deck, a few payoff cards like Engorged Gobbler, Sunsoul Phoenix, and Spellstorm Titan. The majority of your troops are things you'll have summoned in by other card effects, Candlelight, Replipopper, Tentacles or Stormlings. Both strategies fuel Yetigeddon and several buffs to your wide army of token-ish troops from your charge power, C.A.G.E., Pulverazor, and Yeti or Not filling various roles.

      It could benefit from other cards to push your troops through, Lazgar's Vengeance or Psychic Ascension could be great ways to get there, one of it's strengths is smoothing draws to ensure you hit shards to cast your more impactful spells, and great synergy. Having two or three cards with runic proc the turn your Spellstorm Titan comes down can just end games, pushing your advantage with Mastery of Time or Gore Feast early can put enough pressure on your opponent to give you the time you need to setup combos and finishers if it doesn't end things outright. It's a bit weak to crypt hate - though it doesn't entirely rely on access to the crypt, and sweepers clearing the board puts you into recovery mode, though it has cards like Army of the Arcane Cinder to bounce back from big board resets and if left unanswered can end the game on it's own.

      Thanks to woodelf in game for suggesting I put the list out there, one of my favorite things about this format is you can fill your deck with fun cards that wouldn't normally see play and have them be super good, and as far as constructed formats go this is one of the cheaper ones to get into. You can absolutely put high power uncommons and low cost legendary cards most players aren't interested in and are relatively easy to pick up on the auction house in your deck and win some games, some cards that are pricier are less of an issue as you only need one of them, and if you want to dump resources into getting all the alternate art cards and extending the art to make everything look as beautiful as Hex is known to be you can still go all out.

      See you in the Melee <3 Arti
