Ever wonder how good To My Side might be if it didn’t have that deck crippling restriction? Well I aim to find out when the expansions launches by running the KFT Midrange early game package up to the 3 mana mark, then have your later game consist of non-minion cards from the Kobolds and Catacombs expansion along with Deathstalker Rexxar and use Hemet Nassingwary to delete all minions from the deck which suddenly enables Rhok’Delar and To My Side.
Obviously the strategy fails if you draw the 3 cards which rely on the “minionless” clause before hemet. In order to minimize risk of this I am relying on the tracking to remove the useless cards at the time from my deck to find the ones you want more quickly. If Stitched Tracker finds Hemet, after you play him you draw the Hemet that is still in your deck much sooner and thus activate your “no minion cards.” However the Stitched Tracker’s effect on average may simply not be good enough so I am open to the idea of replacing them if they under perform in practice. Loot Hoarder and Coldlight Oracle could serve a similar role.
I will experiment with 2 Dire moles instead of 2 alley cats to start to see how well they perform. I will also play either 2 Golakka Crawlers or 2 plated beetles, depending on what decks I find myself queuing into.
The only 5 cost card this deck can consider running is Explosive Shot. If you wanted to run the Spell Stone you would have to cut a lot more cards to fit in the secrets.
I am hopeful that a deck like this can either burst down your opponent in a similar way hunter decks usually do but also gives you the option to switch to a value oriented game plan if the former option does not succeed.
