The Banana Saga, Part 2: A 'Fair' Fight

Knuckles' agent walked into the gym wearing a wide grin. As a goblin he was more wily than most in the Grimy Goons and had managed to barter with the Jade Lotus to let him and Knuckes stay in Gadgetzan when they took over 2 years ago.

"Hey, Knuckles! My man" he called out to the large gorilla slumped in the corner. "Look, I know things have been tough since the Lotus kicked the old Don out of town but -"

Knuckles snorted and pointed at the pile of empty banana skins next to him. "What? Bananas?" his agent answered with glee. "Well, that's why I'm here! You see I was talkin' to Gallywix the other day and he says he and the Bilgewater Banana Company would love to sponsor you, offering a lifetime's supply of bananas!"

Knuckles' face lifted and he immediately sprang up in excitement. "Settle down, settle down." continued his agent. "I know, it's great. But here's the thing, Gally doesn't think you're up to the job as it is, and you're going to need to be made a teensy bit - maybe a lot - bigger. Here, take a look."

The goblin rolled a battle plan out on the table and proceeded to explain what was going on with all the arrows criss-crossing the parchment. First he pointed at what looked like a crude drawing of a zoo. "Don't ask me how Gally knows The Curator, but he has managed to convince the guy to bring his pets along draw cards and act as a distraction. No beasts though, that's very important. You're the only beast good enough for this rodeo."

'Draw cards?' Knuckles thought to himself. As a self-proclaimed hunter it had never occurred to him to draw cards before.

Next the goblin pointed to a picture of some troll archers. "Gally's managed to pull some strings and got Zul'jin on board. I think Halazzi's Lynxes might want to sponsor us too. Regardless, he'll supply archers for crowd control, and he sounds particularly keen to try out his Crushing Walls. Who can blame him?"

"What am I doing in all this?" Knuckles asked in a way even his agent could barely understand. "That's the best bit!" replied the goblin. "You don't have to do anything really! Don Han'Cho will help an old pal out and smuggle in a few crates of goodies for you to eat while the rest do their thing. You just toughen yourself up and boom, Emeriss will make you super-powered. Your silly opponent will no doubt think you're King Krush and feel safe behind a taunt, but then you swoop down and use The Beast Within you to give 'em the old one-two. They'll be knocked out before they know what's hit 'em."

Knuckles leaned back and adopted the same smile as his agent. A lifetime's supply of bananas just for a couple of punches? And Bilgewater Co. bananas at that; they're the best bananas around. He nodded his assent before pointing to the last bit of the plan not yet covered, which read "4x?! 8x?!!!!". "Don't mind that, I was just letting my dreams get ahead of me thinking what if we could call on Emeriss' powers more than once..."

    I got both the Knuckles and the C'thun deck. Love them both though the C'thun one is surprisingly consistant. It might just be luck but I won more with it than with knuckles. 

    Anyway Thanks man!

    All I have to say is thanks for sharing this deck.  Im not really a combo type at all, but this one is just so fun. 

    I did add don Han'Cho back into it just because i got him in pack golden and don't use him much.  

    such a blast!

    Hey! I really like this saga! Good ideas and pretty interesting decks!

    For this one, you can change a The Beast Within for a Goblin Prank to give those punch a little more flavor!

      I think my first version did include Goblin Prank, alongside both The Beast Withins (since that was the card that prompted me to make the deck to begin with), and I found it to be too many combo pieces, but certainly swapping one for the other makes sense and shouldn't hinder the combo at all... except in the rare circumstance of the opponent having minions in stealth.

      In practice it is rare the extra +2/+2 matters, but if you want to tell the version of the story where Knuckles' agent is a prankster it is surely a must!

      How much are you missing? I would be hesitant to advise anyone to craft it unless they already had at least one of Knuckles or Emeriss already, and preferably The Beast Within too, as these cards might not find much use elsewhere (although I had fun with Emeriss in C'thun hunter).

      The rest of the cards are pretty cheap or has lots of use in other decks.

        So.... you gotta link for that C'Thun Hunter? Been having a lot of fun with the Mill'Thun Rogue deck lately. Would love to give a C'Thun Hunter deck a try

          No link no, I don't even have the deck list anywhere. But ultimately its a C'Thun deck: you throw in all the C'thun cards (I'm pretty sure I left out the more expensive and difficult to find time to play ones like Skeram Cultist and Doomcaller), add in Emeriss as a final mega buff, then fill the rest of the deck with whatever you need (draw and removal spells mostly).
