Rakano Melting Pot

The core of this deck is relic weapons backed up by removal.  Several relic weapons are pretty strong against aegis-abusing decks, equipment decks, and control decks.

Because the deck has a lot of removal, games tend to go longer.  There is a burn angle to the deck with 2X Flame Blast and 4X Obliterate.  A good chunk of games end with this deck burning out the opponent.

The 1 drops are there for value and to put opponents within burn range.  Hopefully Oni Ronin can stack some Warcrys to buff weapons (although there is a good chance that they will stack onto units, which is not ideal).  The 1 drops will also trade versus aggro decks.

Assembly Line is purely to answer aggro.  Because it is a spell, it does not rob Warcry stacks from Relic Weapons and other units.  Valkyrie Enforcer is there to trade against aggro, to pressure control decks, and to silence problematic abilities.

There is a Rise to the Challenge toolbox for answers and finishers.

Matchups

Unfavored versus Combrei.

A little unfavored versus Bandit Queen.

Balanced or somewhat favorable matchups against most control decks.

This deck is really strong against aegis-abusing decks and Rakano.
