The deck uses Lightning Storm, Volcano, Primordial Drake, and Hagatha the Witch to keep the opponent's board clear and stall so they can draw cards and eventually assemble a strong Shudderwock to set up lethal or even finish the opponent off. This is accomplished through Saronite Chain Gang, Grumble, Worldshaker, and Lifedrinker. It punishes fast swarming decks like Aggro Paladin and Zoolock through its high amount of efficient board clears, taunts, and heals.
One variation of the deck forgoes most of the utility cards to instead power up Shudderwock, relying on it for a one or two turn kill. This version is stronger in a Control mirror but weaker against most other deck types.
