This deck looks to turn tempo on it's head. With a 3/3 for one mana in Chip, and the ability to pump out a massive amount of power by sequencing Salt Spire into Taliyah, with Malphite's board wide stuns to finish off the opponent this deck swings with the force of a mountain.

This deck mostly follows the typical gameplan of a Nasus deck, with the added value and pressure of Akshan's package. The deck benefits from the added layer of synergy that targeting your own units for Glimpse Beyond, Ravenous Butcher, and Spirit Leech adds to power through a Warlord's palace and get to Warlord's Hoard faster.

Kindred Elise sentinel control aims to use the powerful tempo swing that Burgeoning Sentinel, Bhuru Sentinel, and Kindred's ability bring to the table, allowing you to accelerate your own development while keeping your opponent down. This version has the added pressure of an Ezreal to start burning the opponent out while keeping them off the board.

Roji's variant of the deck slides more towards handling the board with massive tempo swings and unstoppable overwhelming champions. It has Blue Sentinels to cover the early game and get to the higher end of things sooner, and Desert naturalists to crack open Sarcophaguses effectively. His version opts to more Absolver and Rite of the Arcane with less rite of negation as well.

Open deck in builder

They say that the cold of the mountains can drive a man mad, this is evidence of this. The deck attacks on multiple unexpected angles, opting to use Stance Swaps in tandem with Saga Seeker. It also has Sunbursts as a catch all for dealing with big threats, and the Buried in Ice + It that Stares combo to wipe the enemy's board with one Feel the Rush to top it all off. It looks to be centered on value without losing too much tempo, and is very interesting to see.
