Our daily Deck Highlight aims to feature decks from our vast deck database (as we work to implement more filtering features, stats, and data) that our users have put extra effort into sharing, with detailed guides and videos.
Today we feature a Patriot deck by Kingfisher with an added twist:
Could this have been achieved with Kazar in the slot instead? Almost certainly. But the Skrullmeister has a few tricks up his sleeve that will beat decks an ordinary Patriot deck never could, and I’d like to quickly break some of them down.
- Overall plays like any other Patriot deck. Since several meta decks run late distruptive cards (Leech, Aero, Leader, Prof X etc.) this deck is designed to develop the board early with Mister Sinister and Brood rather than overrelying on a Turn 6 Ultron
- Not many decks are running Enchantress atm, so playing out Patriot and Mystique on curve rather than Turn 6 works well and tends to outrun a lot of disruptive decks
- In general playing on curve is recommended, even if it feels like your plan might be a bit obvious
Super-Skrull has won me games in ways I never thought possible until I started running him a few days ago, here’s a few examples:
- VS Patriot decks you get a free win as this variation never loses mirror matches, so long as you draw Skrull you will completely dominate your opponent
- Mister Negative is a tough matchup for standard Patriot, but Skrull wins you a lane if they’ve played Iron Man, and if you follow up with Mystique in another lane Skrull can almost win the game by himself
- VS Cerebro this one is a bit lucky to pull off, but if you’ve been curving out with Misty Knight, Mister Sinister and Brood you can steal their Cerebro, and if you find a Mystique followup you beat them with their own win condition
Skrull brings a lot of upside and surprise win conditions to the Patriot shell, but there will also be many games where he does nothing and you wish you had run a more consistent card in his place. Luckily for you, whenever this happens he’s also able to fill a moral support role, grinning up at you from your hand as you play out the standard Patriot gameplan. Overall makes for a super fun variation on the formula!
Stats for the run from 88 to 101 over the past 3 days. Thanks for reading!
