Concept

Unlike the “vanilla” keywords, Dying Wish minions do a lot a different things, which makes them difficult to build around. In the factions that support the keyword (Vetruvian, Abyssian, and Vanar),  it’s possible make decks filled with mostly Dying Wish minions combined with the in-faction synergy cards. However, there is one piece of neutral Dying Wish support that provides a clear direction to build around: the keyword “lord” Unseven. If your only other Dying Wish minions are powerful and expensive, Unseven provides incredible tempo and the best mana-cost cheating available. This plan still works best in the factions above, but is somewhat viable in other factions as well when combined with other synergies such as resurrection effects.

Cards

Wishers

  • Unseven
  • Dioltas
  • Grimes
  • Dagona
  • in-faction

For the Unseven approach, these are the biggest and best minions to cheat into play.

  • Azure Horn Shaman
  • Jaxi
  • Void Hunter
  • Gnasher
  • in-faction

The best of the smaller Dying Wish minions, for “tribal” builds.

Synergy

If you can afford to run few early-game plays, Keeper of the Vale and other resurrection effects work well with the Unseven plan to keep the big minions coming.

Example Decklists

Lyonar – A controlling list that seeks to get value out of resurrection effects (although sadly, Vale Ascension is bugged and fails to work half the time). Decklist.

Songhai – The Unseven approach kind of fits into an Ebon Ox deck. Decklist.

Vetruvian – Unseven combos dropping powerful 6-cost DWs, or tribal with Combustion. Decklists:  Tempo (credit MrMana), Tribal

Abyssian – The strongest deck utilizes all the amazing in-faction discounting cards, which allows for very strong go-wide combo builds. Alternatively, you could cheat out the powerful big Dying Wish minions. Decklists: Wide (credit AlphaCentury), Big (credit Miguel)

Magmar –  While Magmar doesn’t officially support the keyword, they have their own form of Dying Wish in Rebirth. This build is a high-curve egg deck that highlights your minions’ resilience to removal by running multiple sweepers. Decklist.

Vanar – The above list uses Unseven combos to make your big nesting minions even more recursive. Alternatively, use the in-faction Dying Wish granting effects for undying token swarm. Decklist.
