Part of a series on neutral meme archetypes that can be played (with variable amounts of success) in any faction.
Part 22: Random.

Concept

Many cards in Duelyst have effects which are at least partially random, but there’s a big range in “how random” each is. For something like Letigress or Red Synja, the randomness is controllable to the extent that it is often actually deterministic. For other things like Zyx or Klaxon, you usually don’t care too much where the random spawn(s) occur. These decks instead utilize random effects that have significant variance and measurably different outcomes, but still a high enough power level on average to be worth playing.

Cards

  • Jaxi
  • Elkowl
  • Sworn Sister L’kian
  • Blue Conjurer
  • Grincher
  • Grimes
  • Pandora

Neutral minions with random effects at about the power level discussed above.

  • In-faction

Every faction has some additional minions and spells which fall into this category.

Example Decklists

Lyonar – Works in a Tempo Argeon shell. Decklist here.

Songhai – Finally, a home for Twilight Reiki. Decklist here.

Vetruvian – Has lots of in-faction random effects, spread across many card types. Decklist here.

Abyssian – Naturally has somewhat of a “sabotage” subtheme. See decklist above.

Magmar – Also lots of randomness, mostly related to token production. Decklist here.

Vanar – With good spawns, you can build a pretty scary board. Decklist here.

  1. A little update: I’ve seen a few people playing decks like this on the ladder, particularly Matsouka. They play some cards I didn’t get around to mentioning above but which seem fun, like Z0r, Ghost Lynx, Bloodsworn Gambler, and Mindwarper.

Even in the Trials meta, and even on a budget, high-value minions on curve backed up by efficient removal is still a recipe for success. Uses no cards above rare.
