After establishing a 6-0 Gauntlet run with Reva in his previous video, Son of Makuta discusses the logic behind his draft and reviews the performance of each card that he included. With relaxed and thoughtful explanations throughout, he eventually pilots his deck to an impressive 12-1 record.
In his first YouTube video in September, Son of Makuta claimed, "I don't know much about Gauntlet. I want to try it out, and I want you guys to come along for the ride." His Gauntlet skills have improved since then, but his light-hearted and friendly approach to the game is still a pleasure to watch.
You can watch the rest of his Reva draft through this playlist.
Upon request, F8D explains how to pilot his Structure Zirix deck in the match-up against a Fast Cassyva deck in an S-Rank match.
After creating heavy pressure over the first few turns to disrupt Cassyva's stall-based strategy, he punches straight through Cassyva's Turn 5 Spectral Revenant using Falcius and continues to rush down her general. Despite a soul-crushingly powerful Grasp of Agony, he wins by preventing Cassyva from refilling her hand using Rite of the Undervault, since she was forced to use all of her mana each turn to survive.
Competitive Meta Deck
LiquidKitten reviews the second game from his Best of 3 against the Songhai master himself, NoWayItsJ.
After discussing the differences between the Aggro Reva and Spellhai Reva decks, the pair of them going into a detailed analysis of their closest game. Along the way, LiquidKitten and NoWayItsJ both explains the reasoning behind their plays, along with loads of advice from NoWayItsJ how to pilot Reva decks.
Note that J's microphone is rather crackly due to connection issues, but it improves as the video continues.
Competitives Deck (Meta & Non-Meta)
LiquidKitten tests his skill against NoWayItsJ, a veteran player with numerous tournament victories to his name. In this best of 3, LiquidKitten pilots his Tempo Sabotage Zirix deck against NoWayItsJ's Fast Reva deck.
After being obliterated by Reva on Turn 4 in the first game, LiquidKitten claws his way back and wins the following two matches, summoning more Iron Dervishes than Reva could deal with and repeatedly answering Reva's minions using Lightbender and Blistering Skorn.
See their second video for a conversation between NoWayItsJ and LiquidKitten, reviewing the second game from Reva's point of view.
Competitive Decks (Meta & Non-Meta)
A new challenger approaches to face F8D’s Structure Zirix – an Aggro Lilithe deck piloted by our very own LinearFox.
After recognizing that Aggro Lilithe decks would probably be running Spectral Blade, F8D aimed to bait out a Spectral Blade using his Ethereal Obelysk, praying that LinearFox wouldn't have another Primus Fist. Luckily, this gamble was rewarded and LinearFox played Spectral Blade on the following turn, allowing F8D to clear the board using Rasha’s Curse into Fireblaze Obelysk.
From there, LinearFox lacked either the burst damage on the on-board minions needed to remove either of F8D's Fireblaze Obelysks. And after generating numerous 4/2 Wind Dervishes using Whisper of the Sands and Rasha's Curse, Lilithe's health was shredded before she could cast any of her Spectral Revenants.
