I’ve played this deck for a while, mostly just for fun in casual, but it generally works and is a lot of fun!
There are an abnormal amount of healing cards (Mistress of Mixtures, Forbidden Healing, etc) to combo with Blackguard. I’ve seen this guy do some pretty crazy stuff to the opponents minions, which is a lot of fun!
One of the biggest problems I’ve run into is that I have too much defense (Stonehill Defender and Tar Creeper), and so I don’t actually do that much healing, which restricts how much damage my Blackguards can actually do. I think that the weapons do help with this, because most of the time I use them to trade into minions, thus lowering my health.
Like I said before, this isn’t necessarily a competitive deck, but it is a lot of fun and can hold its own. Also, I’m sad to see Ivory Knight and the few other cards that are rotating out leave, but I don’t think I’ll have much of a problem finding replacements.
