Last weekend Team Nihilum took home the Archon Team League Championship over Cloud9. It's been a good amount of time since
we last covered the tournament
, but thought it would be a good time to highlight the six decks that led the team to a $150,000 victory. Understandably there's no tremendous outlier as far as risks go, but as always there are some very important tech decisions that inevitably made all the difference.
The Grand Tournament has certainly instilled some amount of variance among Druids. Sometimes you'll see and , but the only card Thijs was sure about including was which has the chance to completely ramp the game out of control. There are few surprises in the deck aside from which simply looks to deal with aggro and pose a big problem for Grim Patron Warriors that have already blown their .
You always have a few decisions when running this deck archetype. You can see here that Thijs has opted for a instead of two s to help him relieve some early game pressure. Everything else is your basic run-of-the-mill Freeze Mage.
The newest archetype to appear in the finals was the new and powerful Secret Paladin. alone willed this deck into existence and now it stands (at least for the moment) side by side with Patron Warrior as one of the strongest on the ladder.
It's interesting to see that RDU treated as a win condition and that alone. He runs only one of each secret aside from which is arguably the best Paladin secret there is. This way, drawing Challengers should clear his deck of most of the secrets that are largely considered garbage draws and lets him put more meat into his deck.
Not much changed for the Hunter class with The Grand Tournament. Though does make an occasional appearance, it's still tremendously clear that and are far and away the favorites. In a move towards Hybrid Hunter, RDU runs one of both while keeping a lot of the early game pressure with mid-game threats like and .
It wasn't that long ago that Lifecoach was only running one , so you can't say that there isn't some variance among Grim Patron Warriors. Heck, there used to be a time where and were only included to make people believe you were playing Control and not Patron. Many thought the element of surprise was the only reason they were included but it looks like they're here to stay. He also only runs one which keep you from sitting on too many cycling cards or dead weight.
Demon Handlock is usually the most stagnant archetype there is as you're already guaranteed to have all four giants, , and . But we have to give props to Lifecoach for running it in the first place, you honestly see plain old Handlock run more often these days.
