Rock Paper Scissors[edit source]

The decks listed as the dominant ones, from what I can tell, don't beat each other in an RPS way - Mill loses to Blocklance and Warpleaper since you're feeding them their win condition or die before you can mill them, respectively. Warpleaper also tends to outdo Blocklance as they won't let you get enough Ice Lances in your hand to be able to combo them down, so you either need to draw something like 10 consecutive Ice Blocks and ping them every turn after 4, or they need to never draw a Metaltooth Leaper until turn 5 or later. Neither of those is very likely. Honestly, the top three decks I've been able to find are Ice Block + Ice Lance, which as mentioned loses to Mechwarper + Metaltooth Leaper, and that deck then loses to Mana Wyrm + Frost Nova, which is too slow to beat Block + Lance. Each of those tends to outperform most side decks, wins to one other "top tier" deck, loses to one other "top tier" deck, and then has a 50/50 in a mirror match. --Cronocke (talk) 00:52, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Late reply, but given differences of opinion I've simplified the section to simply provide various deck combinations, although the 'dominant' decks are still listed first. If someone wants to add a writeup below that explaining their opinion of which decks hold what position in the various tiers, etc, they are very welcome. -- Taohinton (talk) 00:51, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
