EMP
Meltwater Moose
Capricious Marauder

Chain huge minions and dispel effects to control the board. Uses no cards above rare.

Concept

Make your AOE dispel effects do double duty by disrupting your opponent while removing troublesome drawbacks from your own minions. Vanar has the best minions for this archetype, and most of them fit within the budget restriction. Playing big expensive minions can be dangerous since the removal in Duelyst is so strong, but these minions are so big and cost relatively little enough that it works a lot of the time.

Cards

Dispel

  • Chromatic Cold
  • Lightbender
  • EMP

Dispel effects, to be used both proactively and reactively.

Drawback

  • Sellsoul
  • Meltwater Moose
  • Capricious Marauder

Overstatted minions with drawbacks you want to dispel. The first two can be run out on curve and dispelled when convenient, but be a little more careful with Marauder. An interesting interaction with Marauder is that his side-switching effect counts with parity, so that if two of your other minions die simultaneously, he will remain under your control.

Removal

  • Hailstone Prison
  • Cryogenesis
  • Dancing Blades
  • Frostburn

A mix of removal, mostly damage-based. This list runs no true hard removal, but our dispel effects cover annoying abilities pretty well already, and usually our minions will be bigger than anything the opponent is running. Cryogenesis will always draw you a Moose, which allows for a nice curve from 4 to 5 mana. Blades isn’t as big as the rest of the monsters on the list but is solidly sized and dispel-proof.

Other

  • Azure Herald
  • Crystal Wisp
  • Hearth-Sister

Your 2-drop package, providing ramp, healing, and repositioning. Hearth-Sister is particularly important as a way to get in with your huge beaters to close out the game, so save them when you can.

Gameplay

Play out massive minions, and hope to get extra value from your dispel effects. The deck is relatively straightforward to play but you need to know your matchups in order to replace properly, especially since you lack card draw. Most decks you’re trying to go over the top of, but as Faie you always have the option of stalling while chipping the enemy down with Warbird if the situation calls for it.

Upgrades

Sidegrades: Aspect of the Bear is an alternate removal spell, and should play fine with all your fatties to clean up the token, but you’ll need to avoid dispelling the Ursaplomb. Healing Mystic in place of C. Wisp is a simple change if you want more healing and don’t like the tempo loss of Wisp.

There is one key upgrade: Malicious Wisp, who is not only Vanar’s best card but is the best thing to dispel. Beyond that, Sunset Paragon and Cloudcaller are strong removal minions who are immune to dispel.
