Hello Everyone! You probably don’t recognize my name, but that’s alright. After all, we all have to start somewhere.  I’m John Wells, a gamer of many sorts: video games, board games, and most recently card games. Today I’m bringing you a deck tech and some gameplay from Eternal with somewhat of a known commodity: Owl Ramp

*The deck was developed by ManuS and was taken to a Top 8 finish by Jaffa

Owl Ramp

4 Seek Power (Set1 #408)
4 Desert Marshal (Set1 #332)
2 Find the Way (Set1 #513)
4 Temple Scribe (Set1 #502)
4 Eilyn’s Choice (Set2 #220)
4 Knight-Chancellor Siraf (Set1 #335)
4 Secret Pages (Set1 #81)
3 Auric Runehammer (Set1 #166)
4 The Great Parliament (Set1 #338)
4 Harsh Rule (Set1 #172)
4 Marshal Ironthorn (Set1 #174)
2 Minotaur Ambassador (Set1 #346)
4 Mystic Ascendant (Set1 #116)
3 Aid of the Hooru (Set2 #230)
6 Time Sigil (Set1 #63)
5 Justice Sigil (Set1 #126)
2 Primal Sigil (Set1 #187)
4 Combrei Banner (Set1 #424)
4 Seat of Progress (Set0 #58)
2 Seat of Wisdom (Set0 #63)
2 Hooru Banner (Set2 #216)

Now, what we want to do is play our efficient threats like Marshal Ironthorn and Mystic Ascendant and eventually get to the 12 power necessary to play Aid of the Hooru.  Usually one Aid is enough, and often times we will win with a massive Ascendant or Siraf activations before Aid becomes relevant. We have early speed bumps like Temple Scribe and Desert Marshal to help us get to our sweeper (Harsh Rule) and making SO MANY OWLS with The Great Parliament. So, let’s see how the games go!

All in all we didn’t do too shabby. Getting run over by aggro decks is never fun, but I do love a good A+Space. Perhaps my one qualm about the deck is that it is highly dependent on Legendaries, sporting a full 19(!) legendaries, which can price newer players out of the deck. That said, if you’ve got the Shiftstone or have the cards I do encourage you to play Owl Ramp if you’re looking to go WAY over the top of your opponents.

If you have any questions you can leave a comment here, on a video, or hit me up on Twitter @jwiley129. Thank you all for following along and we’ll chat next time about something a little closer to my wheelhouse.
