Strip mine, Mox Ruby

What match up favors you?

Slower, non interactive decks

Fast tempo decks and The Rock

Why did you select this archetype?

I chose this deck because I did not finish the other deck I was building

What is the spiciest card in your deck?

There is nothing really spicy in the deck

Did you have any unusual interactions, or interesting plays?

The most interesting play was a turn two goblin recruiter by me, and then a turn two goblin recruiter by my opponent. (hmmm wonder who that could be)

Any cards seeing the Axe next week?

I might cut Pyrostatic Pillar, Intimidator Initiate, and Goblin Heelcutter

What kind of deck would you like to see do well in highlander?

I would like to see more tribal decks.

Are there any colours, or pointed cards that you would like to include?

I think the deck already has the points it needs

Is your deck an adaptation of another players deck?

The deck was based off Tims and AD’s list
