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.

F8D updates his monthly tier list for the November 2016 season, explaining which generals are most viable in the competitive scene, thanks to their sheer strength and favourable match-ups against other competitive decks. As well as reviewing the strongest mainstream decks for each general and how they compare against each other, he provides a succinct summary of all the major archetypes that you could choose between and how effective you can expect them to be.
After experimenting for several weeks, LiquidKitten reveals his current version of Big Abyssian, removing Darkfire Sacrifice and Nether Summoning in order to include more early-game interaction.
After explaining his tech choices and the deck's overall strategy, LiquidKitten jumps into the ladder and shows how to pilot his version of the deck against Aggro Vaath. Since Vaath wasted his Adamantine Claws and Elucidator on killing minions instead of attacking Cassyva, LiquidKitten could afford to protect his late-game minions from Egg Morph - by positioning Reaper of the Nine Moons and Vorpal Reaver behind his general, Vaath was forced to spend his removal poorly in order to answer them. After several turns of Vaath ineffectually beating his head against a wall, LiquidKitten simply ends the game with Obliterate.
Competitive Non-Meta Deck
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.
