Road to Seasonals 5/10 Winner’s Lineups

Tuesday's Tournament saw Arussel rise to the top with the popular powerhouse of Fizz Afaelios, and a returning all-star in Darkness!

Tuesday's Road to Seasonals tournament saw a slippery deck come out clearly on top, with FOUR copies of Fizz Afaelios in the top four. While the ladder meta is flourishing, at least for these tourneys the meta seems to have some clear winners... Without further ado, the lineups

The recent innovations in FTR are interesting, here we see a list that has geared itself back up with more anti-swarm tools such as two Boxes, and tossing in the full three Kindlys to keep them stronger against early swarm tactics.

Quickly it seems like we've gone from many innovations and tests to the afaelios lists to having one or two subtle differences. Here we're on two and two for attach cards, and one wallop to stop opponents' key turns.

Slowly people are coming around to the power of Minimorph, and as a result, one of the best decks to wield it is slowly creeping back in time for seasonals. The notable choices here are 2x Mini, 2x Vengeance, and 3x Wail.

Same as with Afaelios, FTR has a couple general builds nowadays as well, here is the more ramp-centered version, sporting no Kindly's or Sentries, but a full three Faces and It that Stares. It also has a copy of Voices of the Old ones and is up to two Buried in Ice to compliment their three ITS.

Fairly basic, one Vest, one Bastion, one Aegis, one Blinded. Enough niche one-ofs to strike fear in the enemy's heart of a crucial blow-out. Blinded on an enemy's Lantern or Fated unit at the right time can be especially backbreaking for some of the top meta competitors.

I stand corrected on that lack of innovation thing. -Flamespitter - Wallop +2 Bastion and -Conchologist for +Bandle Commandos, aiming to play a bit of a slower value game by the looks of it. Aside from Minimorph and possibly Hush, not many things handle our threats at burst speed in this meta, so Bastion is almost guaranteed to defend well. The commandos are aimed at gaining value over time and also making for another base-elusive unit to hold origami. It's interesting to see and feels like they're targeting something in particular.
