Saurian Finality
Decimus
Tectonic Spikes

Also known as Vath in a Hat. What we have here is a Vaath deck that has traded Crypto/Drogon for Deci/Spikes and Vaath for Starhorn. So Starhorn is just sort of playing as a cowardly Vaath deck, because Vaath is to afraid of Kha to show his face.

I have been playing Duelyst for many years now, the majority of which is S rank with frequent top fifty’s when I have the time to play competitively and occasional top tens.

The Abjucator Finality package has served me well in most metas. I neglected making a Starhorn variant due to Vaath always seeming like a better choice for it, but with Khanum Kha in the mix these days Vaath is to scared to show his face.

The biggest thing to know about piloting the deck is to always dig for Abjucator and finality or deci spikes depending on the match up. And avoid using Abjucator unless it hits finality or spikes, preferably both.

While I miss Vaaths powerful smash abilities the combination of not having to worry about card advantage and your main wincon with decispikes having little to no counterplay has potentially lead to an even stronger deck then what Vaath usually has. Even if it is not actually better, Khas mere existence makes this a better meta choice.

While I am no fan of DeciSpikes it is hard to argue with its raw power and highroll potential. And when we are being faced with greater evils like Wanderer, Kha/Fault, and various burn decks I do not feel so bad for resorting to it. The DeciSpikes package grows even scarier here due to Abjucator allowing you to pull off the Notorious double spike decimus for a whopping 18 damage much easier.

The deck is pretty strait forward, midrange magmar package, as much control as we can cram in, and a good amount of healing leaves your prepared for pretty much anything. And if you have a sideboard you can pretty much guarantee aggro, artifact, and dispel vulnerable lists stand no chance. Lifeforce is in the sideboard for those match ups where you really do not want to even play Finality at all like versus Fault/Kha as just a surprise lategame bomb, but its so rarely needed its the one of.

Its a terrifying deck and may be one of the best in the game.

It’s like Egg Ragnora, if Egg Ragnora decided it didn’t want to be a fair board-based deck any more and preferred killing people on 6 mana.
