Cassidy: (TCG) Karador, Ghost Chieftain



Chewey Sound Board

Community: Nekusar


Everyone has a Nekusar deck! What’s up with that?!

Strategy:How does “the Nekusar deck” work?

Windfall effects tend to be more effective than Wheel of Fortune. Lots of overload draw spells are this deck’s main plan.


Discard burn (such as Megrim) also speed up the burn.

Beware the other Nekusar decks!

Lifegain: Whip of Erebos, Basilisk Collar, Exquisite Blood,


Specter effects: Helm of the Ghastlord, Elder Mastery, Geth’s Grimoire

Enchantment removal: Aura Shards
