I hope everyone is doing well adjusting to new schedules and work from home configurations due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It's been a challenge, to say the least! I think right now games are more relevant than ever, just to help us all keep our sanity. Today I want to spotlight a deck from one of the top streamers for Legends of Runeterra, MegaMogwai. If you're looking for something fast and fun, then look no further!
Astute Academic is basically a 2/2 (starting at turn 2), who can block. This gives a little more flexibility over something like Legion Rearguard. Another early drop will be Draven's Biggest Fan, which is so important to ensure that you get Draven out on turn 3.
Fuel for the Fire
There are quite a few options in this deck that will allow you to discard, but possibly the most important one is Spinning Axe. This is why it's so important to get Draven on the board early. This will allow you to toss cards like Flame Chompers!, Jury-Rig, and Vision for maximum effect.
Why Won't You Die?!
If you're looking for a finisher to nudge your opponent's Nexus into oblivion, then you'll be happy to see Mystic Shot or Get Excited!.
I really recomend this youtuber/streamer.
he is very fun to watch and very informative.
Is Draven so good ? A +1 attack as exchange of a card loss doesn't seem a real game changer ...
The trick is to use axes on other axes.
But this deck has cards you want to discard..
also draven's biggest fan is a discard late game.
also a second experimentor is always a discard cause you can never play them both.
The trick with Draven is knowing when and when not to try to progress him. Sometimes, you want to just keep him as a 3/3 quick attack that generates axes--you never HAVE to play them. They make great Rummage targets. And as you see in the video: it does feel really bad when you spend an ax + card just to be denied progression. If you DO upgrade him all the way, though, he becomes a beast.
Edit: and I forgot, it's also nice to hold them in hand and just to be able to "threaten" using them--it means your opponent has to be cautious of any blocks were his unit survives at 1 HP.
Draven's Quick Attack makes him fairly dangerous, but discarding is the point of this deck. Most of the cards you're throwing away have effects that trigger from discarding them. You also get closer to upgrading Jinx with every card you toss.
