Hey guys, URLSweatshirt here with a Faie deck for the October 2016 season. I played Arcanyst Faie and PandaJJ tech Faie to S-rank early this season, then took a break for a bit. I came back after patch 1.74 to experiment with new Kara and rebuilding Faie without Kron (Kron was a 3x in every Faie deck I played last season). I built this deck, and I've been around top 10 S-rank almost the entire time I've laddered with it, peaking at S-Rank Position 2.
The deck I ended up on I call 'Freeze Faie', because it is all about making your opponent move (or not move!) and position in a way that makes them develop their game plan non-optimally. The first thing many people have said when looking at this decklist is 'what's the win condition?' I think this deck is pretty unique in that there both isn't a defined win condition, and that it really doesn't need one. Honestly, the damage sustain from Faie's BBS is what I would call the win condition. When you play against Faie, you are effectively starting at 19-21 health, and in a deck like this that's built to get to 9 mana where you can BBS every turn, the chip damage will quickly do your opponent in.
ZAMO presents her third entry in a series of budget deck techs, showing other Silver Division players how to build and play using a new faction for less than 2000 Spirit (crafting material). This time, she presents a 1240 spirit Vanar deck with Faie Bloodwing, aiming to rush down the opponent’s general and bypass their defensive minions.
After she offers some pointers for the use of each card, LiquidKitten pilots the deck against a spell-based Reva deck in Diamond Division, explaining his moves and evaluating the value of each card in that particular matchup.

On Turn 1 Mystic, we aim to teach new players how to climb to Gold Division as soon as possible, then from Gold Division to S-Rank as soon as you're interested and have time.
