Haunting Scream – Reanimator build

This is a follow-up to my previous post on Haunting Scream.

The reanimator build revolves around Whispering Wind and Grasping at Shadows.

When Whispering Wind attacks, you can discard a card to draw a higher-cost card from your deck.  If you discard a 3-cost card, you will get either Grasping at Shadows or Vara.  We specifically do not run Monuments since they turn into mediocre 5-cost cards.

I’m not actually sure if this is a good idea since this is a “win-more” build.  If you can attack multiple times with Whispering Wind and have time to setup this elaborate combo, then you were probably going to win the game anyways.  Also, you don’t actually need to reanimate Vara since you’re not far off from hard-casting her given the conditions where this will work.

An argument can be made for other cards in the toolbox like:

  • Deathstrike – because this is instant-speed, your Whispering Wind can attack into bigger flyers that you can kill after blocking.
  • Harbinger Bat – for defense
  • Snowcrush Animist?
