Magesworn
Sphynx
Archon Spellbinder

Part of a series on neutral meme archetypes that can be played (with variable amounts of success) in any faction.
Part 19: Prison.

Concept

Many cards restrict opponents from performing certain actions, or tax them for doing so. Putting lots of these together leads to controlling decks that choke your opponent out of resources and grind their way to victory. There’s actually too many Neutral cards like this to fit them all in one deck, so you’ll want to focus mostly on whatever subtheme is best supported by your chosen faction.

Cards

Anti-Minion

  • Crimson Oculus
  • Venom Toth
  • Chirpuka
  • Minion Sentinels

Punish opponents for playing minions.

Anti-Spell

  • Aer Pridebeak
  • Magesworn
  • Archon Spellbinder
  • Spell Sentinels

Prevent or tax your opponent’s spells. Be aware of the anti-synergy between Archon and Magesworn.

Other

Anti-Replace

  • Sphnyx

A good combo with Magesworn.

Anti-Attack

  • Sworn Avenger
  • Attack Sentinels

Discourage attacking.

Anti-Draw

  • Decimus
  • The High Hand

Punish your opponent for drawing too much.

Example Decklists

Lyonar – Magesworn fits naturally into a Titan deck. See decklist above.

Songhai – Runs an assortment of Sentinels and spell taxing. Decklist here.

Vetruvian – Ciphyron is a natural general for the archetype. Decklist here.

Abyssian – Has some synergy with the faction’s “debuff” subtheme. Decklist here.

Magmar – Magesworn fits into Apex decks, and Vaath is a pretty controlling general anyways. Decklist here.

Vanar – Malicious Wisp, Sphynx, and Moonlit Basilysk work great together. Decklist here (credit Atrestia).
