----------------------
Just recently I have been getting back into Warlord again and have decided to post many of my favorite decks to the forums. I am open to all feedback, suggestions and criticisms so please feel free to comment or ask questions. These decks have all been tested quite a bit in Ancients format, so I know they are solid, but there can always be room for improvement.

I kept myself from saying your Kothkah deck would be better out of Drac or Xod, but I can't help but say you should be running this deck out of Contal instead. Ashenstorm doesn't do the one-shot-kill very well.

Can you elaborate on why Contal makes a better choice for one shot kill? Since his ability only helps with finding the siege that you need in preparation for a turn 2 setup the Albino Novices and Brels may be dead before I can get the shot off. It seems like his deck would be quite different.

With Syvonne I have access to Extensions or Rise, and Obey. Plus, in the event that I do not get Trebuchet or The Conflagration I can use Korvos, Sceth's Spears or Ballista Crew to go for a ranged attach on a spent Warlord.

I have no doubt that Contal can make a good golden gun deck, but without doing it I'm not sure in what ways it would be better than this one.

The only siege you run in Contal is x1 Trebuchet. The rest is just enough draw to make sure you can flip it into your hand first turn and then some multi wounding like Chosen, whatever the other stuff you listed is. If you build it well, it should get you some first turn kills fairly regularly. Trebuchet and the double Brel start is enough to kill most Warlords and you have access to stuff like Staff of Kizazi or whatever to ready it from stunned. Maybe some of this stuff, too:

3 Carg'rag
3 Dadaelia
3 Meet at the Inn - Maybe.
3 Dragon's Hoard
3 Backalley Tavern
3 Light
3 Johan Halfblood
3 War Plans
3 Veiled Passing
3 Exhaustion
1 Toren Yscar
2 Ivaas
1 Grihilga

I guess "technically" you have to run Wand of Negation (maybe on some Ghost Bogs) as well for Signon's Armor and Scales of the Storm, but I would just pretend those cards don't exist if I were running it.

Edit: Somewhere on this forum there is a deck list for that. Whoever invented it had also trimmed it really well if I remember correctly. I believe they used Word of Recall to ready in case they had to start over on the second turn (they missed their kill shot the first turn).

Ahhh - I see now. It does seem like this will work very well. Thanks again for the explanation.
