Hello again! Its been a while since I wrote one of these but here we go again. Just in time for the release of the next set – The War of the Suns… yes I know this is kinda late, but oh well.
Today I’ll introduce you to my pet deck of the current format: Lailah, Maiden of the Swamps (AOA-092)–Asuka, Gravekeeper of Tsukuyomi (NWE-058) combo. The deck aims to accelerate the resolution of End of Night (NWE-072J) and is able to do so as early as turn 2 consistently. If left uninterrupted a lot of games either end with your opponent’s death from the resolution of it or your turn 2 ending with 7 cards in hand and 5-6 stones. Most of them open for interaction on the opponent’s turn.
The deck however is very much feast or famine. If the contract resolves, Asuka, Gravekeeper of Tsukuyomi (NWE-058) is by far the best deck in the game. If it doesn’t, the deck can feel underwhelming at times. So we just have to make sure to both find and resolve the card a lot through numerous ways to stop our opponent from interacting with us.
For starters, here is the entire deck list. The choices made and different parts of the deck will be explained in more details afterwards.
