Deck of the Month: February 2010: Wax on, Wax off

This month's deck is the tournament winning deck "Wax on, Wax off" played by Martin Schumacher.

I am huge fan of "Ashur Tablets", and since this deck features a huge amount of it, I have to love this deck. Basically the deck is a rush combat based on Animalism and Potence, with a bit of Presence based bleed cards. What makes the difference to other rush combat deck is the huge "Liquidation" / "Ashur Tablets" engine. The three master phase actions provided by the "Nana Buriki's" special ability and "The Parthenon" allow the deck to gain a large amount of pool, while getting the cards into the hand and back into the library it needs at a given table. Another big advantage for the deck is the build-in-rush "Nanglia Were" has, as well as the +2 hand size provided by the special ability of the deck's two main Guruhi vampires.
