This deck started out as a meme but after playing and revising it, it has become surprisingly strong and really cheap to build.

Dark Pharaoh Tekahn is a beast in this deck with so many lackeys. 

Against control you set up the Expired Merchant / Cruel Dinomancer combo. If you can play Spiritsinger Umbra before playing the Dinomancer, you'll get almost a full board of unkillable 5/5s. Most decks just can't handle it.

Against aggro, just keep pumping out the eggs and beefing your guys up with Grim Rally and EVIL Recruiter.

 

Plague of Flames is a good reset button if the opponent plays a ton of giants or big priest minions, etc. As we often want our minions to die this card is insane!

Lastly, Plot Twist may seem like an odd choice, but it is in there to cycle your hand to find the combo pieces you need as your hand is often full of lackeys and it has been super strong.

    Ah, egg-lock. One of my earliest and most fun decks. It has continued to evolve with new cards being offered. Time to take it for a spin again.

    i messed around with similiar version 

    for me Dark Pharaoh Tekahn was so underwhelming

    i ended up cutting him EVIL Cable Rat and Sinister Deal for Ratcatcher Voidcaller Voidlord

    i had no problem summoning voidlord with voidcaller so i was consistently hitting dinomancer with merchant

    IMO this change make deck better vs aggro and u always win in value game with infinte dinomancer

      Not sure to be honest, it's still a work in progress.

    Interesting to see someone running the same deck as me. I know the concept isn't entirely new but I didn't expect to run into another person using the same concept this early in the expansion. I'd love to compare experiences with the decks.

    How do you feel about the lackey package? In place of lackeys, I put a few more egg activators (Void Terror, Sanguine Reveler) and Baron Rivendare as well as some buffers (Abusive + Archerus). I'd probably go with Librarian like you instead of the Abusives though as I sometimes find myself trying to dig for the combo. That being said, my hand is rarely large enough for Plot Twist to be useful, yet the majority of my wins come from big egg plays which offsets that.

    What's your justification for Plague of Flames? IMO with eggs it sucks to wipe your whole board and there seems to be more useful activators. Is it to counter Darkest Hour warlock swings and Big Priest rezzes? I'd love to know how useful you've found the card to be in your matchups. My preference is using Devilsaur Egg over Scarab for the more useful body since you have very few buffers to make use of the 1/1's, but I could see an argument for them if Plague of Flames ends up being key in most matchups.

      The lackey package has been a huge success for me. Even without the buff from Tekahn, they are just so strong for controlling the board and giving you so much flexibility. Plot Twist is better when you have a lot of cards that fill your hand with things (lackeys in this case) but I still found 2 of them was 2 much. I also found that I hold onto Plague of Flames a lot some games without using it so I reduced it to 1 as well. It's mainly just useful for resetting the board. This deck tends to have lots of little minions or things with deathrattle that you want to kill so it's a huge swing turn to wipe out your opponents bigger minions, get some eggs to deathrattle, and still have mana to rebuild a new board. Also if you do get off the combo with the dinomancer, it's a one sided board clear for 1 mana.

      Probably Carnivorous Cube. Without Umbra your late game will suffer a bit, but she's not essential.

    at first I thought this might be a Stranger Things reference, to be honest, I was a little disappointed. But good deck!

      haha. That would be funny to try and make a stranger things themed deck!

    Looks really fun, will give this a shot. My egg zoo lock has worked well for me, and Cruel Dinomancer infinite is surprisingly more consistent than I thought. Putting the two together should be pretty interesting and seems like it should be pretty strong...

    My only concern is Priests in general, especially with Mass Dispel and Plague of Death.

    Also, have you thought about Carnivorous Cube?

      Yeah, I thought priests would be an issue too, but I'm not running into too many of them around rank 10 and the ones that are there don't seem to be playing those spells.

      I initially had cube in the list and it's decent, but I found oftentimes I'd rather just cast a bunch of smaller cards and generally I win the game before the cube duplicating minions really matters. It's just better to have a really low curve in a deck like this.
