Circus Lat, Very Bad, Do Not Play

bowlsley 312

I am publishing this deck not because I plan to play it in Worlds and subscribe to some noble beliefs about open decklists, but because I very much do not want to take it to Worlds. I do it to silence the small and persistent little voice in the back of my head that keeps saying terrible things, like "but you love shaper", and "just think of the tricks you can pull off with Brahman, Euler and Egret", or "five strength Echelon!" or even "no but for real I think Brahman might have some game against rush decks." I will not succumb to this voice.

I do think there's a germ of an idea here though, and I would quite like to revisit it in a few weeks time. Q-Loop is a great card with Brahman, but it's also just really helpful for getting a big rig shaper set up quicker. The breaker suite is designed for flexibility rather than all-in on the circus plan. I have perfectly normal good cards like Imp and PolOp and Turning Wheel! Khusyuk is actually quite a good closer!!

This is how it starts. Don't fall for it, kids. I'm playing Steve at Worlds, there will be 0 interesting cards in the deck, and I will still do terribly. See you there.

Pretty coool concept that brahman with prognostic q-loop and dzmz optimizers

Yeah, bouncing Egret and the breaker of your choice every turn should yield a lot of sweet breaking opportunities, should the game go on long enough. I’ve found it quite fun, though pretty mentally taxing!
