Future Forific





Atomic Axe is one the prize cards for the Bring-Your-Own-Set Marquee event. It looks to be just meh but as I gazed into the Persuaders shiney noggin I realized that there is potential in this k.o. effect. So I dug around and found my Emerald Eye Legend deck a decided to tweak it to make use of Atomic Axe.




So lets start out with my original build.




4- Emerald Eye 1
4- Emerald Empress (searches for Emerald Eye) 2
4- Shrinking Violet<> Emerald empress (discard emerald eye) 7

5- The blight 1
4- Tharok 3
1- Time Trapper 3
3- Manno 4
1- Starfinger 4
2- Valadus 5
1- Atrophos 5
2- The Persuader

4- Big Leagues
4- Busted Knee
4- Internal Injuries
4- Chain Lightning
4- Flying Kick
3- Mobilize
2- Fatal Five Hundred
3- Unipower

Its a standard future foes build that is legal for legend tournaments. Plus the blight fill in if you have to under drop.

Now lets change out some of the characters so that its not so legendy.

-4 Shrinking Violet<>Emerald Empress
Its probably not going to get to turn 7

-5 Blight
Hitting this one drop is great but not necessary at this point. We might add an extra 1 drop later.

9 go out, 9 go in

+4 Computo<>Mr. Venge
Recovery good, burn and recovery even better.

+1 Manno
Redundancy tastes like grape jello, which is good.

+1 Valadus
Same as above but cherry.

+3 Daxamites
Now we can burn and gain endurance with recoveries.

The characters in the deck, so far, look like this.
4- Emerald Eye 1
3- Daxamites 1
4-Computo<>Mr. Venge
4- Emerald Empress 2
4- Tharok 3
1- Time Trapper 3
4- Manno 4
1- Starfinger 4
3- Valadus 5
1- Atrophos 5
2- The Persuader

Now to tweak the plot twists.

-4 Chain Lightning
Lowering defenses for stuns isn't as good as raising attacks.

-3 Unipower
For Khundia! is better. Why I did not see it before I will never know.

-4 Flying kick
Do not need flight for what I'm planning

-1 Mobilize
Need space for 2 more Fatal 500

12 blues are out, 12 blues coming in

+4 Atomic Axe
Can't chain a recovery effect to save a character from death.

+4 Total Anarchy
Kill the wee ones early.

+2 Fatal 500
Search art thou good? Certainly thou art.

+2 Level 12 Intelligence
Sometimes you just need life gain and equipment k.o.

The Blues for the deck are now-

4- Big Leagues
4- Busted Knee
4- Internal Injuries
4- Total Anarchy
4- For Khundia!
2- Mobilize
4- Fatal Five Hundred
2- Level 12 Intelligence



The deck as a whole has changed tremendously but now it uses Atomic Axe to get rid of your opponents pesky characters so you can smash with your big, very big, guys.

Deck as a whole.

4- Emerald Eye 1
3- Daxamites 1
4-Computo<>Mr. Venge
4- Emerald Empress 2
4- Tharok 3
1- Time Trapper 3
4- Manno 4
1- Starfinger 4
3- Valadus 5
1- Atrophos 5
2- The Persuader
4- Big Leagues
4- Busted Knee
4- Internal Injuries
4- Total Anarchy
4- For Khundia!
2- Mobilize
4- Fatal Five Hundred
2- Level 12 Intelligence

Tune in next week for the Dry run against a random deck.

I'm working on a decklist for a different Future Foes legend build. I tell everyone I think they are ridiculously good, but everyone laughs, so I guess I have to prove it to them.
