Last Stand at the Memes

Hello and welcome back to another adventure on Platypus Island! This week we have “Molten Stand” or “Last Stand at the Fist” or “Last Stand at the Memes” — the naming possibilities are endless! Essentially I wanted to take one of my favorite and most successful deck ideas (Molten Fist beatdown), and add some spice in the form of Last Stand at the Gate. The game plan is pretty straightforward: control the board until you can buff up some armor and get in with Molten Fist. If things get dicey or boring, windmill slamming Last Stand at the Gates makes everyone’s game more interesting. The deck generally loses hard to fast aggro, but generally has a great JPS Control matchup. Unitless JPS just has a very challenging time dealing with our big burly Fists, so you can just casually punch your opponent to death after a small amount of durdle. I would reccomend this deck for anyone looking to try something different, anyone who has 60k shiftstone burning a hole in their pocket or if you already own some of the pieces. While the core game plan revolves around Molten Fist, you can swap 1-2 with a Sword of the Skyking if you don’t have a set of Fists. Last Stand at the Gate is what makes the memes sing here, but can literally be just about anything else and probably be better. Rakano Crest and the new Unbreakable Alliance (8JJ gain 12 armor) are an auto-include from the next set, so stay tuned for further refinement.

I hope you enjoyed your stay here on Platypus Island, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
