    I think this is a fun deck, thanks for sharing. I have been looking for a Bwonsamdi deck for awhile – I like this one.

    Keyword is fun, not necessarily competitive in the hands of a non-pro :-). I do think another FFA is a good idea, but not sure what to pull out, as I agree Grand Archivist is useful.

    the whole Keleseth + Grand Archivis / Spitefull Package is fail imho. Another point: Talanji + Bownsandi no synergy cause all of these battlecrys will not trigger if Talanji pulls them from your hand. There is exactly ONE single card wich is worth to play from hand without battlecry and that is lichking, wich means you have to play LK on Turn 8 while spirit of the dead is on the baord + you have to draw 1-Mana-LK again while you have Talanji in your hand on Turn….540981923 ?

    Bownsandi works better with taunts and Deathrattles.

    -Grand Archivist
    -Spitefull Summoner
    -2 x Mindcontrol
    -Free from Amber

    Really bad deck. Loses in early game against anything that has 1, 2 or 3 drops. Relies on random draw luck in late game. Just skip that one.

      Just so we’re on the same page, you’re convinced a deck that got piloted to #15 legend is terrible?

    Is there any good replacement for Talanji? I don’t have it and I’m low on dust.

    I don’t understand Grand Archivist in this deck. Seems like he’s randomly going to screw something up. Wouldn’t another Free From Amber be better?

      What could he screw up? The only spells he can cast are Free from Amber and Mind Control. No Psychic Scream or something else that could screw you.

      Archivist into MC is one of the strongest swings you can have. Your opponent drops Lich King, you play Archivist, now you have a 4/7 AND 8/8 while your opponent has nothing.

      That said, I agree that adding 2nd Free from Amber might be a good idea. I’ve played A LOT of Spiteful Priest when it was a thing (before Spiteful Summoner got nerfed) and I felt like running 4 spells in total was optimal. Significantly lower chance to draw all of them before you play your Spitefuls.

        If GA casts FFA, he picks the minion randomly and with my luck it will be something bad. But I see what you’re saying. Don’t drop until you KNOW he will cast MC on the target you want.

          No, no. Him casting FFA is also great. It’s not about “luck”, anyone can high roll and low roll it, but the average result is very good. Getting a 4/7 + 8/8 for 8 mana (pretty average outcome) that will then cast MC next turn if it’s not dealt with it is still a great play. There are really no 8+ mana minions that can screw you over. The worst statted minions are 5/5 or 5/4, but even that outcome is not the end of the world. The only minion that can potentially screw you is Hakkar, but it can be as bad or even worse for your opponent.

          Grand Archivist casting FFA is significantly better than you casting it from your hand, even if the outcome is random. It’s better to have a 4/7 (that, I repeat, will cast MC next turn most likely) + another mid-sized minion than having a chance to pick something bigger like 12/12. A single minion will be removed much more easily than two of them. The only time when casting FFA yourself is better is when you’re desperately looking for something specific, like a big Taunt.

            Even if you get Hakkar (and that gets destroyed), isn’t casting his blood once better than drawing and multiplying it? Of course, Grand Archivist has to stay alive in order to do that. 😉
