What Are We Trying to Accomplish?

This list is trying to be a control deck through-and-through. Messing with your opponent at every opportunity is the name of the game. The biggest pull of A17’s newest Level 1 is the fact that it punishes your opponent for playing effects that draw them extra cards. This list includes several cards that also give your opponent the ability to draw cards in order to mess with their momentum in combat. Black Viewing Drill and Black Absorption Drill make for an amazing engine to add onto your Level 1 power, and could make your opponent’s life rather miserable.

The Power is Yours!

So what did you think? Make sure to share your ideas on what makes this deck tick and what can transform it into a well-oiled machine for competitive play!

As always, please make sure to vote on the poll below for next week’s “Theory-crafting 101” list!

Until next time, FanZ Warriors.
